3.0 out of 5 stars Good resource, but you will need more April 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The 70-519 exam covers an incredibly wide range of topics. When preparing for it, my first challenge was to figure out what's important to know for the exam. I thought this book was a good resource for helping me tackle that question. Having said that, I would not recommend using this book as your only resource. I found some errors in the book (regarding WCF). I also used practice exams. (There are a number of companies that provide practice exams. I used Transcender.) These two resources helped me pass the exam on my first attempt. Be prepared for some intense preparation!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a good resource May 28, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I would not recommend the book to prepare for the exam. I found many errors across all chapters. I understand writing a book is not an easy task and I love Microsoft Press books, however, I think this book was rushed to the market due to the lack of official Microsoft's training material on this exam.
If you need a good preparation reference for the exam I would recommend you get the exam objectives from the Microsoft certification site and find the documentation on MSDN.

Tony Northrup has written many great technical books, unfortunately this is not one of them.
