This book is a must for anyone prepping for this exam. It begins at the beginning and has many more test questions than the Microsoft official curriculum. I prepped for this exam by taking the Microsoft course 6420, using LearnKey videos and CBT Nuggets videos, and reading this book cover to cover, and I passed the test. This book will be a little basic for the experienced IT Professional, but most people taking this test won't be that experienced.
I bought this book in the hopes it was a good resource for Microsoft's 98-365 MTA Exam. It's not. It's a student handbook meant for the classroom. There are no answers to the questions at the end of each chapter. In addition there are no online resources by the publisher of this book. I actually called them (Wiley) and the answer was that the author "wants you to think about the answers". Personally I want to pass the test. For the amount of money that is being changed for this book, the sloppiness and laziness shown by not only Wiley, but Microsoft as well is simply unforgivable.
If you already have experience with server administration, then this book is alright; otherwise, this book will not prepare someone with little or no server administration experience to pass the MTA Windows Server Administration Fundamentals exam.
The couple of "Get Ready" sections in this book are misleading. when you get on the computer and try to follow instructions in the book, they don't seem to match with what the author is trying to say. Also, there are bunch of typos. the material is basic. Some topics does not include examples. You'd have to do your own web search to get complete understand of those topics. I preparing or MTA exam but I will also look at other material before taking the exam. I wouldn't solely rely on this book to prepare for the exam.
This is a lame book. I purchased it because it was required for the class I took. Your not going to learn anything from this garbage. If you dn't have to take this test as a required class then don't even look at this thing. Just move along. The college book program is a racket anyway. Teachers getting away with pushing these substandard educational material on students because they have an arrangement with the publisher.
Between this and experience, was able to pass this exam after completing the book. Buy the book used and find a test voucher to save money! I was able to get half-off through Prometric $57.00 (or at least get a second chance voucher). The exam is not difficult.
Gives good information and has walk through examples to reinforce what you are reading about. There are a couple of errors that could trip you up. For example; in the section dealing with Hyper-V, specifically with P-V and V-P conversions, the terms get mixed up.Editing could have been better as you will see numerous erroneous words.Did pass test on 1st try. I did have a background before reading.
A great reference guide with detailed configuration specifics. I wouldn't say it's easy to find the information in it, but what it lacks in index it makes up for in content. Buy it if you're looking to get your MTA - lots of exam examples.
