That being said, before you take the exam you should have some hands on experience to help with the concepts and I always recommend some additional exam prep like exam practice exams to ensure that you have everything down. Write down and really know your powershell commands.
If the book gets updated I would then give it 4 stars as I would hope the errors would also be corrected.
The material is ridiculously outdated and some of it is outright wrong.
The Q and A has glaring gramatical errors, repeated answers, spelling mistakes and more.
Don't waste your money, I'm not sure how I'm going to study for this test now but I know this book will make for great kindling at my next camp fire.
The one thing better about this book than the 70-346 version is that it was not immediately outdated when I got the book. I think the content in this book will remain fairly stable (at least for a while longer than the 70-346 content). Microsoft is still hammering out how they want to deploy Office 365 to customers, but when it comes to administration, I believe they're mostly done deciding the processes. If you want up-to-date content, this book (as of today) will work out just fine.
When it comes to passing the test, this book is a must-have I think. Not because the book is amazing, but because there are no better options. You can try to watch videos online (CBT Nuggets) or pore over the Microsoft technical documentation, but you'll either get too little or too much information. This book has been abridged to give you a pretty good overview of what you need to pass the test. It will also give you the technical documentation links that you need to read in order to understand and pass the test.
So what sucks about this book? There are are a ton of mistakes. I'm too lazy to make a list, but I'll give you one example. On page 141 of the book, you'll see an example question with four possible answers. For some reason, two of the answers are duplicate word-for-word. If you check the answers in the back, only one of those answers are right. There are a ton of errors and typos throughout the book. The worst part is when you read information that is straight out contradictory. Make sure you have the internet handy so that you can verify the information through the Microsoft technet articles.
This book is helpful but not perfect. If you use this book as your only resource, I doubt that you will pass your test. You will need to have additional experience actually managing an Office 365 environment, or at least purchase a practice test from a service like MeasureUp.
