    Question 70-687: Configuring Windows 8 - Best study guide?

    Hello! I want to start studying for the MCSA - Windows 8. I've recently received the Security+. Due to the new emergence of Windows 8, what's the best study guide for it? Currently the best I've seen is:

    Amazon.com: Training Guide: Configuring Windows 8 (9780735673229): Scott Lowe, Derek Schauland, Rick W. Vanover: Books

    Thanks!

    I purchased the book you mentioned, but have not begun reading it yet. If it is like the other two Server 2012 Training Guides that I am reading currently, you'll find it lacking.

    I know ... who cares about a monkey opinion?!

    So much of Window 8's "innards" comes from Windows 7 and Vista. Why not complement the Windows 8 book with a popular Windows 7 70-680 textbook? You'll have the best of both worlds.

    I found the Exam reference to be some what lacking .. I am using it as a "StudyGuide after I re-read the "Training Guide"
    Save pennies fellow nerds/geeks the Exam focus edition from Amazon isn't worth it.

    I have pre-ordered THIS book from O' Reilly because I had a buy 2 get 1 free deal and half off. Doesn't release until July but I won't be ready for it until Q4 of this year anyway.

    People rarely care about the Narwhal's opinion either. I think it is because we are "Inferior."
