I only found 1 typo and one screen shot that didn't belong with the topic it was covering, besides that the book is pretty accurate.
There are areas where the author talks to you like this is the first time you have used a computer, to hey there is too much here to cover so go research it on TechNet.... I am okay with both options, I am not looking to have this book be a paint by numbers for passing the exam.
Like another reviewer stated/noted, there is no PDF or online freebies/resource.
You'll have to use TechNet, but hey, the author points out the URLs for you so go look it up....
Book is a fast read, I received it on Thursday 10/31/2014 and as of 11/05/2014 I just finished Chapter 6.
Check out: MCTS Guide to Microsoft Windows 7, Byron Wright/Leon Plesniarski Exam 70-680, for a more solid foundation and explanation and then refer to online resources about changes in 8.1, i.e. Storage Spaces, etc.
Bottom line: not worth the money.
