    i only need the 70-414 for the MCSE but I can't find any info regarding a book for this exam, I know the content is being updated to R2 for 413/414 but is there going to be a book available for this with R2 content in the near future?

    I bought the 70-414 book 18 months ago on Amazon and keep getting emails with changed release dates, I am taking the test in a month so I am sure I will cancel the book unless I fail

    The 413 and 414 are supposed to update at the end of April if I am remembering correctly. I do not feel like searching for the posting. Either way my 413 is on the 29th of this month and my 414 is on the 21 of April

    The 70-414 book is on the UK Microsoft website which says March 31st but I would not believe that, on Amazon.com it says July 25th! Server 2012 went RTM August 2012 - there is nearly a 2 year wait for books at this stage!

    Good luck with the exams netsysllc!

    So are people just using technet / cbt nuggets to find the material for the 414 exam? I personally really like to have a book to read even if its complete rubbish like the 413 book at least it points you to all the relevant stuff on technet.

    Yeah, TechNet / CBT Nuggets / Pluralsight / Microsoft Official Curriculum - I'm not a fan of the MOCs personally, but I like having a book no matter how crap too.

    Here is a compilation of material for the 70-414 that I found and am using to study along with the CBT Nuggets.

    MCP Implementing an Advanced Server Infrastructure (70-414)

    And here is the one I used to pass the70-413 in addition to CBT Nuggets and the Exam Ref book.

    MCP Designing and Implementing a Server Infrastructure (70-413)

    I might also add that the careeracademy training for 70-413 is very lousy. I am glad i got free access. How they can charge $495 is beyond me. There is no coverage of VMM topic and the funny part i found was about domain renaming. The video was basically "don't do it; its to hard." No explanation of the steps involved.

    any one tried Video 70-414: Implementing an Advanced Server Infrastructure ? I didn't even know measureup did video training. Cost is completely ridiculously at $495 but thought it would at least be worth asking if anyone here had used it.

    I have a hard time reading technet to study for exams, reading a technet article for a specific technology when your at work is one thing, but going through hundreds of technet pages in the space of a few weeks to study for an exam kind of drives me nuts. Really hope someone releases a book in the near future for this exam.

    I have a feeling these are the videos from careeracademy: Exam 70
    Don't know if its worth it. This reseller has it cheaper if you do want it.: 70-414: Implementing an Advanced Server Infrastructure

    Its really annoying that Measureup and Transcender would release practice exams for 70-413 and not for 70-414 when you need to pass both to become an MCSE.

    I personally can't justify spending $500 on CBT videos for a single Microsoft test, or any other study material for a Microsoft test. As for a 70-414 book, I wouldn't hold your breath especially since the test is changing next month. The earliest you will likely see a 70-414 book is in July when the official Exam Ref releases (assuming it doesn't get delayed again).

    confirmed for the 7th of April... I do 70-413 tomorrow. Not sure about 70-414. Surely they have known for a while what the new exam objectives are going to be.

    So I took the test today to try and beat the update on the 7th and guess what, the test was loaded with tons of R2 stuff which I was not ready for.
