Excellent book, poor exam
Having experienced the monster exam 70-216 for MCSE 2000 I was very curious whether this W2k3 book lived up to the task. The 70-216 MS Press book was poor to say the least.
I was surprised that not only this book was excellent to read, but it even filled in some things I didn't know before. The hands-on exercises were good as well.
Things like CIDR were discussed in a very clear way which made me think why did I find this difficult before. Likewise the book isn't superficial but goes for in-depth knowledge and insight, just what you also need in real-life.
Simply stated this book has excellent depth and covers nearly all subjects, only some security related things get less attention than on the exam (SUS is emphasized in every exam so it seems). Then again, these should be known from the 70-290 exam and seem to be common knowledge for just about every exam.
What was disappointing however was the exam, of the topics in the book only 1/3 was covered in the questions I got.
This is the type of book MS Press should have made for the 70-216 exam.

Harvey's Review of: 70-294
I hold a degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.I am currently an MCSE, MCSA, MCDBA, CCNA, CCNP. I read alot of Technical Books and strongly recommend this one. Anybody that has plans to complete the MCSA/MCSE Exams, should look at the new series that Microsoft has in print. It gets down to the real facts quick and when you are ready for the Exam, you will pass it for sure. I would welcome your feedback or questions. Happy reading.......
