    I just got one of their resources for another exam, and I really wasn't impressed. It's not an ebook.

    I'd recommend Sybex's Server+ book.

    I would check out the Exam Cram Server+ book, it is one of the few study resources for that exam that are for the latest version. I have the book and it is pretty good IMHO.

    Thanks for the 2 suggestions, I was wondering one thing. The current Server+ exam is 2005. And the Certification Bible was published in 2001, is that book still worth using to study for the cert?!?

    No clue. I just started working on this now. You can pick them up for $5 from the "new and used" sellers (as opposed to directly from Amazon), so I think it's safe to say, that it will be a great resource for that price. It looks like the Exam Cram was released in 2005. You could probably use that as a secondary resource to fill in any gaps.

    I would stay away from this Sybex Server+ book if I was you. The reviews are truly awful.

    The Trevor Kay book is very good. Grab a copy of the exam objectives and use them as a study guide. You will not find a single book that covers everything. I always advise students to not rely on a single source for study.

    You can augment your research with the web or other resources. The Server+ Bible will give you the biggest bang for the buck.
