A good example is Objective 4.2: Implement Azure Storage tables - best "to the point" explanation of a concept I've seen in a long time! Pay special attention to the thought experiments, objective summaries and reviews at the end of each objective. They are packed with extra information not explicitly stated in the objectives themselves. Also, watch for questions styled like "which of the following are NOT true" as they can throw you off.
Beyond preparing for the exam, this book will likely make a good reference later on, while trying to maneuver the vast landscape of the Azure behemoth. The only downside is that Azure changes so rapidly, some of the nomenclature used in the book is already obsolete (e.g. web sites are now called web apps in the portals). Also the existence of 2 management portals makes things more complicated than it should be! But c'est la Microsoft, not the fault of the book.
At the risk of stating the obvious, one final warning - this is not a book to learn the underlying technology, it's a book to help you prepare for the exam. Sure, the reader learns a lot of new things but it's not a starting point to learn Azure. There WILL be code in the exam and there WILL be case questions. I am giving the book 4 stars because it does not show any examples of case-based questions where time-management is very important (which would be helpful for preparing you for the exam).
