I picked up this book because I wanted to get ready to support Vista at work and also to pass the test. I like this book because it is written in a way that is easy to read. I am confident that anyone from novice to expert could pick this book up, read it, and understand it.
I have to say that the author has done a very nice job picking out all those killer details. Whenever they come along, he helps you remember them using the “Scenario & Solutions” boxes.
For example, when discussing Aurora, the author drives home the point that Home Basic does not have this feature and that if your video card is not up to snuff you will not be able to turn on Aurora. Those are the little details that will get you on the test if you are not prepared.
The study guide does come with a CD that includes access to free on-line and CD training including MasterExam test prep software and MasterSim that help you get ready for the interactive questions on the test. The book is included in a PDF format.
Overall I would highly recommend this product. I have enjoyed the book and feel I will be ready to take this test soon.
