    Default 70-290: Book recommendation?

    For those who have taken the 70-290, any recommendation on what book to use for this exam?

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    I used the Microsoft Press book along with TestOut primarily.

    I just now realized that our avatar's are pointing in opposite directions.

    Hi Gary,
    I primarily used MS Press book with a lot of practice on RRAS and DNS.
    if you have the required hardware for your practice/test lab then its ok if not, use VMware as I used it for my every exam.
    Cheers and good luck for your preparation.

    The MS press book is good for this exam, I also used technet for clarification.

    The Exam Cram series provides some light relief from the MS-Press Series of books.

    Good basic information and ideal for last-minute revision.

    It worked for me anyway.

    +1 Can't speak directly for the 290 but for the 70-640 it's excellent for review
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.
