Great, complete, friendly, and hands-on...
I passed my test today, and it was mainly due to this book! I used this as my primary study book, with the Dummies and ExamCram books being second and third sources of info respectively. All three are great books, but this Sybex book is by far the most complete and user-friendly when it comes to hands-on exercises and experience-based learning. I actually use 2000 Professional extensively, which helps tremendously in this respect. The many screenshots in the book are high-quality too, and go well with the basic WinSim exercises on the CD. Visually speaking, this is the most impressive book of the three! Because it's not in a portable, easy to carry format though, I found it helpful to use the additional books. ExamCram and the Dummies books are great for this very reason: they're short, focused, to-the-point, and can be easily studied anywhere. I highly recommend using at least one of these books along with this Sybex book, because the exam is crazy-difficult! I'm A+ and Network+ certified, used all three books, and I still feel fortunate to have passed. I kind of rushed through the material though, so had I failed it would have been on me and not these books. With certifications, it seems you can never be too prepared, but you have to take the test sometime!

Great book from Sybex
I highly reccomend this book to anyone who wishes to undertake the 70-210 exam. I used this book along with trancenders q's and I passed the test. The book was very clear and I had no problems understanding it. It wasnt boring, like some certification books are. If a certification book is dull and boring you will have no motivation to read it - this book is the opposite, its an easy read. I reccomend also they you do a fair ammount of practice q's as well, then you will understand what the q's are asking you, and what your expected to know. You may know the answer to the question, but the way the question is worded you think you have no idea.
All in all a good book

Good information but....
I thought this book had good information but found it hard to read. I switched to Syngress study guide and found that book easy to read with plenty of good information to prepare you for the exam.
