    Default Opinions on this MS book for 290

    I decided to take 290 next, so I am looking at books on Amazon. I came across this book.

    Amazon.com: Microsoft Official Academic Course: Managing And Maintaining A Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Environment (exam 70-290) (Academic Learning) (9780072944877): Craig Zacker: Books

    Anyone use this book to help pass 290?
    2016 Goals: GCIH, OSWP - DONE!

    I used this Amazon.com: 70-290: Managing and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Environment Package (Microsoft Official Academic Course Series) (9780470068861): Microsoft Official Academic Course: Books by the same author. I also used cbt nuggets and transcender to master the test.

    I know your book has a 5 star rating, but keep in mind only 1 person rated it and it seems that he just read for general knowledge. Plus he was super excited that it game with a 90 day trial that may have biased his opinon.

    EDIT: Looks like you can buy a used one for $6.19 and get free shipping with amazon prime. For that price, why not buy it for a peek?

    I'm currently using the MS Press kit book:

    MCSA/MCSE Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-290): Managing and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Environment

    It's been pretty good so far. I'm also using in addition to the MS Press book: TechNotes and CBT Nuggets for my study materials.

    I haven't tried the MS Academic Course book yet.
