useless for veterans or newbies
If you get handon experience with Windows admin, you will pass even without this book. If you don't have experience, you will fail for sure with this book.
So this book is useless for both. As a reference book for exam, I think this book is not well target at all! consider the contents in this book and what covered in the real exam.

It was everything I needed to pass.
I thought that Holme and Thomas did an excellent job of writing a book designed to help students prepare for and pass the 70-290 exam. They provide a credible alternative to memorizing the thousands of pages in the win2003 Admin Companion, Deployment Kit, Security Guide, etc. The authors were able to distill it down to a dozen or so chapters, plus additional recommended readings before taking the test. Some other reviews seem to criticize it for being disjointed, but the book is clearly designed to help you pass the test, not administer a server (there are lots of other good books for that). Two weeks after buying this book I passed the test on my first try. 'Nuff said.

Not for beginner
I bought the whole set of MCSE. I took the first one 70-290. I found that it is difficult to follow.
