With great ambivalence based on the price, I ordered this book for my MCSA preparation training. It arrived an hour ago and after the first 10 minutes of reading I already hit upon a very disturbing error. Page 2 (Ch. 1 - Selecting a Windows Server 2012 Edition) states that there are 4 editions of Windows Server 2012: Datacenter, Standard, Essentials and Foundation. However, on Page 6 (Supporting Server Virtualization) under its Take Note heading, referring to Table 1-3, it reads: "...You can create more than four VMs on a copy of Windows Server 2012 Enterprise, but you must purchase additional licenses to do so". Windows Server 2012 Enterprise???? So there is now a 5th Windows Server 2012 edition known as "Enterprise"?? The blunder continues on Page 15, again in the Take Note caption: "Server Core is not a separate product...It is an installation option included with Windows Server 2012 Standard, Enterprise and Datacenter editions." Enterprise edition? Really now! From first sight, the book appears to be well organized and geared towards the MCSA exam, but at an exceptionally lofty price of $115.39 ($$$) I am beginning to wonder how many more bits and pieces of inaccuracies lie deep within its overly high-priced pages.

Apparently the answer key can be had in another publication - I found the version by Ian Mclean to have the same exact questions WITH the answers. Hint, google some questions like "Which of the following NIC teaming" (keep the quotes) - this will land you a free pdf of Ian Mclean's 70-410, posted by some college institution. lol, though they may take it down eventually.

Thus far I'm not very happy with my purchase since my intent was for self-study (Not instructor led, must have missed that part). Instead I got a clone that appears to be less than desirable than the original (at least for me..)? Maybe this is normal with publishers/microsoft certs.. with the same cert material licensed to a conglomerate of publishers.

Wonder if this is a copyright issue?

Book does not provide answers to the chapter review questions and Wiley will not provide. Very odd for a study guide.

This book is full of mistakes and contradictions from 1 page to the next. Majority of the review questions are not covered at all in the chapters. Very poorly written!!! Microsoft should be ashamed to have their name on this book or they just did not review it. I have a few books from Craig Zacker and they were ok but I may not buy another from him.

DO NOT BUY!!!!!!
Big waste of money

This is a required text for a college class I am taking. We have tests after each chapter provided my Microsoft that completely contradict what is written in the book. This book is loaded with errors and seems to be written just to be confusing.

At the end of each chapter there is a knowledge assessment. Unfortunately there are no answers and none to be found on the web like one of the other reviewers suggested. (Must have been removed) For what this book cost this is inexcusable. I will never purchase anything this author produces again and I would strongly urge anyone reading this to find a different book! This is a huge waste of time and money! Don't buy it!

I'm a technical editor for VMware Press and I'm very picky about every possible defect in technical books of this type.

I'm also an evening instructor at a Technical College who's taught CCNA (ICND 1 and 2), Configuring Windows 7 (Exam 70-680) this course, Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012 (Exam 70-410), as well as a number of other Cisco and Microsoft Courses.

Through out the '90s I also taught meteorology, celestial navigation and a collection of Sailor's Arts courses. So I'm quite familiar with good and bad technical texts.

Also, I've been working with domains since OS/2 version 1.2 back in the early '90s and I haven't found many factual errors in this book.

And I was surprised by the negative reviews this book has received.

I've found that this book and its accompanying lab manual fit the needs of instructor-led training beautifully. And I think this book's pedagogical features described below make it excellent for exam cramming too.

I have seen horrible books of this type.

But I commend Craig Zacker on a job very well done for his work on this book.

Also, in response to another reviewer's valid complaint about answers to questions, as an instructor at a recognized institution who's registered as an instructor on wiley.com, I have access to the answers to the questions. So the answers *do* exist in electronic form. So I'd say one way this book could be improved would be to make these answers available more freely.

But I hope you get a chance to page through this book and make up your own mind.

I think that if you take a bit of time to get familiar with its layout and features, you'll find that it's excellent.

Book is good technically. But there are no answer sheets to the pre and post tests for the chapters. Major rip off. Called the publisher, and they never set the answers after I requested them. I'm looking for a better publisher. Too bad. I usually enjoy Microsoft Press books.
