It's a given that no one study guide will give you the understanding to pass the associated MCSE exam, but this barely qualifies as a study guide. For someone who has never worked with Windows before and has never seen XP before, this might be a good "Windows XP for Dummies"-like book. It does quickly gloss over most of the basics of the OS, how to network it and even how to deploy it, but falls short of even being a How-To for people looking to support and not wanting to study for the exam. A good example of just how much information this book lacks is to take the practice exam off the included CD-ROM. Less than five questions into the practice exam, the information needed to get the question right is not even covered in the book.
My suggestion would be to anyone who is looking to prep for the exam is to read the XP Resource Kit, the on-line help, and Microsoft's Readiness Review for XP - and leave this book on the shelf.

This Book is the biggest POS I have ever had for a MCSE book. The cd is such a joke the testing software sucks so bad it does not even test you chapter by chapter. I went and took the 70-270 test and I was not ready for it at all. I went out and bought the sybex 70-270 book and its safe to say I will be so ready for the test now. The software on the sybex book lets you test yourself chapter by chapter and overall the book it set up much better.

The book seems like it was rushed to the presses, as it is definitely lacking in necessary material for the exams. I'm very disappointed with this book.

A little backgound about me, I graduated in Telecommunication field, i am a Cisco certified, and working in the networking field, and it is happened that my job now require me more Micosoft and Redhat Linux certified.

all i can say about this book is Useless and Disappointed. i can not express how disappointed i am with this microsoftpress book. it is such a wast of money and time.

the book is hard to read, each concept is not explained well at all, not deepth. especially the review questions in the book,each chapter has about 3-6 review questions, the question are decided just for kids, really... the questions in the book are very easy and not enuf they r no point and stupid.i am sure in the real exam, there will not b any questions simply ask "group policy is ______?" or "you can share _______ connection in home or small office by using ICS-Internet Connection Sharing" (asnwer=Internet). can u see how simple and stupid the questions are, and turely it just ask like this in the book.

I decided to stop and look for other resources, stop now, better than wasting my time (which i already wast my money for the book itself).

i strongly don't recommend this book to anyone, easpecialy who is preparing for exam, this book won't bring u to anywhere close.

if you want to donate your money, better make it somewhere else, not Bill's pocket, he is surely alot far richer than u, u should know that.

Disappointed --- Shall i buy MicrosoftPress' product again?

Per Microsoft Press, due to a recent update for a security fix.

The exam that comes with this book on the CD does not work.

How did I find out? I bought the book. I tried the exam. I wrote to Microsoft Press and they told me this.

In the past, I have gone to Sybex for all my certification needs. I decided to try the Microsoft Press books this time for 2 reasons. First, it is the only certification guide for XP Pro (so far) and second, the CD had the E-Book version. I was excited for the E-Book. It was going to give me a reason to purchase that new Pocket PC that I wanted. When the book came I started looking on the CD for the lit file (for the Microsoft Reader), but found out the book is nothing more than a Help file. Come on Microsoft, support your own E-Book format! There are plenty of IT professionals out there with Pocket PC's who would love to be able to carry this book on their PDA.
As for the content of the book, so far it seems well written. I like how each chapter is broken into lessons. This give me a good stoping point in the middle of a chapter so I can get on my computer and pratice what I have just learned.

The only reason I gave this book 3 stars is because, as nearly as I can tell, everything that I ran into on the test was mentioned in this book. I think IE configuration, troubleshooting portable computer configuration, and Windows XP Stop errors were extremely lacking. As is becoming more and more typical, this book had to many pages, and not enough of the right information.
As a side note, I did pass the exam on the first try, but I credit that more to real world experience than to this book.

This book is far away for being a complete study guide for 70-270 exam preparation. Many questions, that you'll see on the actual exam, do not covered in this book at all. If you are familiar with Win XP, you'll find this book totally useless. If you're newbie to WinXP, you'll see the lack of explanations in many important topics. I'm totally disappointed with Microsoft Press. If you want to pass the exam, choose Sybex.
