As other reviewers have echoed, the content of this book is generally very good for reference. So why the 2 stars? The book fails to really prepare you for the type's of questions on the 70-662 examination. Granted, many of the questions on the exam are poorly written or test asinine concepts that are not really relevant to day to day adminitration but the book is supposed to be an exam preparation book.

I read the entire book and studied chapter by chapter every concept. I also administer Exchange 2010 on a day to day basis and felt I already had a deep understanding of Exchange 2010. I even tested my knowledge with the exam prep questions on the CD nightly for a few weeks. I went in and studied further in any section that I did poorly or fairly on. Based on the book content and exam question, and re-review of the other sections, I felt very confident that I had prepared myself for the exam.

I took the exam, and failed the first time around. I found that many of the questions simply were not covered in the book. Ultimately, I feel that there is more criticism towards the exam itself than the book. The book is good on it's own but it WILL NOT be enough to prepare you for some of the more esoteric material on the test. I ultimately did pass the exam with transcender material. In the end, I felt slightly cheated because I passed the exam with memorization, not due to my in-depth exchange knowledge. Passing was good but I almost felt forced to memorize the specific answers & questions and that is my biggest complaint about many of Microsoft's tests. The test doesn't test your ability & knowledge, just how good of a test taker you are.

Before I start this review let me say that I am in my last semester of an A.S. program in networking. I am also 36 years old and was a web master/designer/sys admin for small businesses for fifteen years as a self taught high school drop out before the economy tanked and my career dried up. Every networking and compsci class I have enrolled in for the last two years I have been the TA and I help tutor in the open labs at school. And I barely figured this book out.

The most important thing I have to say about this book is this. First if you are trying to learn the material buy another book....any other book, even a Dummies book. This book has no interest in teaching you how to use the software. If you do use this book skip all the text and go right to the exercises, doing them cold will teach you more than the text. Second if you are like me and have to use this as a textbook buy the Rapid Review book by the co-author McLean it doesn't try to teach you how to use Exchange any better but it gives you all the relevant information in two hundred pages instead of eleven hundred.

My biggest problem with this book is that it is written backwards and even when it gets to relevant information six hundred pages after you learn how to do something it glosses over the information. The best examples of this are the review questions at the end of chapter one ask you what tasks from chapter one you can perform in the EMC and the EMS. There is no glossary so you skip to the index and find no mention of either acronym. If you keep reading on page 384 you find what both of these terms stand for in a two sentence blurb that tells you nothing about why you would use one over the other or how they fit into the whole of windows administration.

I have been successfully taken Microsoft certification tests for years. Typically, I purchase the Microsoft Press books to prepare for what I will need to pass the relevant exam. This method has worked for me time and time again.

In this case however, I purchased and read this book from cover to cover, did well on the included reviews and practice questions, took the test and got a 540 (700 to pass). I then took the test result information provided by the proctor, returned home and proceeded to go through this book topic by topic. Much to my dismay, there would only be a paragraph or two discussing the particular topic and question on the exam.

In any event, I re-read the book that covered the sections of the exam I performed poorly. I took the exam again with only a 480 result. Again, this book did not include anything covering many of the questions.

Save your money. Do not buy this book with the intent that it will give you anywhere close to the amount of information required to pass the exam. This book will only give the reader a cursory overview of Microsoft Exchange 2010.

After further investigation, I suggest the comprehensive videos, workbooks, and structured labs from TrainSignal. They seem to offer the level of knowledge required to pass the 70-662 exam.

Great book, unless you're trying to, you know, pass the 70-662 exam. I knew this book backward and there were several questions on the exam about stuff I had never seen in my life. Admittedly, it's my own fault for trusting a Microsoft product, but still, if I had mastered everything in the Microsoft book for a Microsoft exam, shouldn't I at least have come close? I didn't. I bombed it. Save yourself the exam fee if this is the only resource you use to study.

I wish I hadn't gotten into IT and could continue my boycott of everything Microsoft. I guess that what "monopoly power" means.
