Avoid the Microsoft book like the plague. Don't bother buying Self Test
Software. Buy Amit Kalani's Que book for 70-316.

Sounds look you would not agree with an amazon reviewer?

If you want to pass 70-316, avoid this book, 5 September, 2003
Reviewer: Adam from Colchester, Essex United Kingdom
As an intermediate level book on C# and Visual Studio.NET, this book is
fine. There is lots of code with few errors, and no time is wasted on
explaining the fundamentals of programming. However, the book claims to be a
complete MCAD Certification Solution, which quite simply it's not. The
chapters don't seem to be weighted appropriately, with a large section at
the beginning on windows forms and controls (with so-called 'important'
members of each of the control class defined, which is unnecessary), and not
enough on the classes of AD0.NET, a core component of the exam. Furthermore
the layout is confusing too, with several key topics, such as event
handling, ADO.NET and Assemblies split up and covered in different areas of
the book. I think the aim was to provide a gentle introduction and cover the
details later, but this approach just serves to confuse. Also, the practice
multiple choice questions at the end of each chapter bear little resemblance
to the real exam, as does the practice exam at the end of the book. Don't
waste your time doing them. The most useful part of the book is the CD,
which contains 60 practice questions by PrepLogic, and are an accurate
reflection of the sorts of questions in the exam. If you've been unfortunate
enough to buy this book to pass the exam, I advise working through the CD,
and looking up every topic on the msdn.com. Much quicker than trudging
through this 1000+ page manual.
