    I have finished 3 courses 70-315,70-316 and 70-320. We studied those
    courses based on MSPress Self Paced Books.

    As I know those books are not enough for taking exams I have prepared a
    list of books and I am going to spend next 2-3 months on them.

    As my budget is very limited (My current salary is $400, yes, salaries
    are very low here in my country) I will appereciate if you can tell me
    your opinion about these books before I buy them.

    I just want to make sure I will succedd in exams in first try because I
    will need to take them in another country and I will need to minimize
    travel and exam costs.

    Again I appereciate your help and opinions.

    Best Regards,

  2. i have only done 70-316 so far, and i used the self paced book, official
    microsoft curriculum 2555a, and the msdn help collection. I passed first
    try. 255a toched a number of subjects that the self paced book does not, so
    they complement each other.

    to know if you are read try a self assessment test at, and use
    MSDN to give you more information.


    kind regards,

    As my budget is very limited (My current salary is $400, yes, salaries
    Can you get your employer to buy some books?
