    It has been quite some time since I picked up any new study guides but back in the day (I sound ancient) I always picked up both the Sybex and Microsoft Press books for every exam I sat.

    I've had a quick look on Amazon and I'm not overly impressed with the Microsoft Press books. They seem to have dumbed down and look a little light on coverage.

    Yeah I would probably spend the money on a Pluralsight or CBTNuggets subscription personally.
