Which book combo is more useful for passing the 70-270 exam?
Reading reviews on Amazon seems to indicate the Sybex and Exam Cram are
better, but there is only one review for the Sybex XP Pro book. The MS
Press books "should" be better since Microsoft is the one making the exams,
but the reviews are bad and the books are old (2001).
Is MS Press going to update their MS Press XP Proferrional study kits soon
with a newer edition? I noticed the Server 2003 study kits from Microsoft
are newer and have blue covers instead of white for the workstation study
guides.
Should you still need to study Trascenders if you make good use of these
books alone or should the Trascenders tests be a subsitute for the MS
readiness review and the Exam Cram?

The Exam Cram2 is newer, last year I believe...it should do you well. As
well, just becuase the MS Press or Sybex book is a little older doesn't mean
it's out of date by any means...the base information hasn't changed much.

The Transcender (or any other self test program) can be useful if you are in
doubt of your readiness or need to see where you are particularly weak.
Just don't become dependant on them.


Best,
Will
