    I am researching to see what material is available for the
    70-300, 305, 306, 310 and 229 exams.

    I have read recommendations regarding the Mike G. books,
    so they are at the top of the list. I also found this at Amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/t...f=sr_1_5/104-2413493-2459116?v=glance&s=books

    Reviews are mixed, there are two used/new copies selling
    real cheap (which makes me wonder) so I would like to
    ask these two ngs for any feedback on this book.

    Any recommendations on other books are, of course,
    welcomed :)

    Another question that comes up is that I know that MS
    Press is selling a bunble of books that cover these exams,
    plus those for the C# track. The usual price for the bundle
    is around $129. Also, MS Press has specific full volumes
    (self paced training kits they call them) for each specific
    exam (sold separately). Is there any advantage in purchasing
    the bundle of books and also buying the individual volumes?
    I would imagine that they might compliment each other, but
    I am not certain.

    For example:
    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/t...3/104-2413493-2459116?_encoding=UTF8&v=glance

    This is a full volume... for exams 305/315. Notice that going
    a little down the page there is a "Better Together" section and
    the other product IS the kit bundle that I mentioned earlier.

    Thanks all!

    For VB.NET: Mike Gunderloy's books are best. For C#, Amit Kalani's
    books are best. Get the blue training guides, not the red Exam Cram.

    I don't get very excited about any book for 70-229. I just used
    Transcenders, Books On Line, and the web.

    For 70-300, I hear the Exam Cram book is the best.
