My problem with a lot of training material is that it just doesn't go deep enough into the topics to enable you to be competent when taking the exam. I used this book, and video training from train signal (which training is even less specific than this book), and failed the exam my first try.
If you're studying for the 70-411 this is a good book for two things: 1.) To give you a basic overview of the objectives, 2.) To provide step-by-step instructions for completing lab exercises.
However, in order to actually pass the exam, I would recommend also using a video training series (I've heard that CBT Nuggets is good - train signal was "meh" in my oppinion, but better than nothing - also you can find a lot of videos on youtube if you can be a savvy searcher, and sift through the irrelevant results) and the Technet Library.
I admit that I was reluctant to use the Technet Library as a study resource at first, but it is really the only place (that...
First off I'll say this is a very good book. Very few errors, questions that hit right on what you should expect on the test, and complete procedures for everything discussed. The answers to those questions are not immediately available, though - you have to hunt in the chapters' text to find them, and the labs, while doable in a virtual environment, are not pre-staged for you. I was expected a simulation environment on DVD. Evidently there will be a separately purchasable item that contains an online simulation environment; I've heard mixed reviews on those, though, and am sticking to the virtual environment at home myself.
What amazes me most about this book is how many writing errors it has. Numerous incomplete sentences, incoherent sentences and spelling errors. Along with that, there are a few concepts that aren't explained that well. I would have figured a book that is a part of the "Microsoft Official Academic Course" would be one of the best, but I was sorely wrong.
