The bottom line is Cisco did a lousy job writing the Switch exam and didn't match the exam to the topics or verbiage covered in the book. I have been told that if you study for the ROUTE exam first you have a better chance of passing the switch exam since some of the material is redundant. Many of these issues are being reported to Cisco so it's only a matter of time before they change some of the exam questions to better match the book.
The problem is there are other topics that are on the test that the book barely covers or does not mention at all. This is where if you are looking to prepare for the test you need to look at other stuff. I think this book should be a part of your overall library of Cisco materials to keep for reference, but in all honesty I would start my studies with something else and the n come back to this later to help flush out some of the concepts.
Overall, though it is a good book, just know thaat this book alone (regardles of how many hours of lab-practice and study is not enough to pass the exams. But as a resource/research book for on the job stuff it is fine.
