If you've used MS Press before, you will experience more of the same in this book. I read the book, used the practice tests, and bought the Self-Test software. I snuck by with a 752 to earn my Enterprise Administrator. The book (and test) focuses on design, and gives you some very nice real-world advice on how to design complex Microsoft-based Networks. It even gives you some managerial advice, which actually gives you a nice sense of pride as you read the book and know what a great certification you're about to earn.

There's no magic to taking MS Exams - my formula for every exam in the Enterprise Admin track was:

1. Read a book. Don't stress over nailing every concept. I used the MS Press books. Just read it leisurely to learn.
2. Go through the practice test CD in the book. Be able to score 80% consistently.
3. Buy a second practice test (I like Self-Test). Be able to score 80% consistently.

For the practice tests, focus on the incorrect answers as much as the correct answers. Know WHY an answer is right/wrong. I don't even use the real cert mode on the tests, I just use the practice mode and learn why the answer is what it is.

Good luck! You'll like the book if you've made it this far.

Great study guide and resource!
In many cases, a Self-Paced study guide is mainly useful for preparing for the test and once you have passed the test, the book becomes a dust collector. This is not case with this book. The authors have done a fantastic job of not only covering the exam objectives, but have also written a book you will find very useful as a reference source and for providing real-world guidance as well.

Many IT books are written by individuals who are obviously subject matter experts, but write in such a convoluted fashion that it is difficult if not tedious to read their book. The authors, in this case, have written an easy to read and follow book. They have done a superlative job of presenting complex subjects in an easy to read manner (try talking about NAP to someone that makes it sound REALLY exciting!).

The book is logically broken down to cover all of the exam objectives - in fact a reference chart is included which breaks each chapter and lesson down according to the relevant exam objective. Each chapter gives numerous real-world examples to emphasize the points covered as well as detailed exercises to reinforce the concepts presented. The authors also include numerous references to Microsoft Best Practices - a nice touch that will prove beneficial to many.

All in all - I would highly recommend this book - not only as a study guide for the 70-647 test, but also as a reference source and even a best practices guide.

This book is very interesting and easy to read.

It's one of the best book I read.

In my point of view is not enough to pass the certification.

R2 certifications are more real world experience than self-study.

Purchased for school district. I haven't heard any complaints (and I would) so I can only assume that everything is okay with this.
