    Sybex are releasing a book next month, I agree the Micorosoft book is useless it's full of mistakes, over complicated doesn't explain what information you need to take in.

    I'm reading this

    MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-680): Configuring Windows 7

    And I've found it really good , don't get Sean Odom book it's a waste of money.

    I'm planning to take the exam next friday and i'm pretty confident.

    I've owned both, and the MS-Press book blows Odom's book out of the water. I haven't take the test yet, so I don't know if it is good enough to pass with.

    The book is alright. Just make sure to check the errata as there are A LOT of errors in the book. I think there is an errata thread on Amazon.

    They both have a lot of errors. The MS Press book is far more complete overall and I think much deeper on many topics.
