My biggest gripe is that the book has a lot of errors, which can be somewhat expected from a new book. However, the volume of errors is still quite striking from what I would expect from a Microsoft book. Most of the errors are minor and can be picked up right away, but some are more serious and required me to reread the paragraph several times before realizing either that opposite terms were swapped or the wrong term was used altogether. The most glaring errors are found in the review questions sections at the end of each section. Many of the revealed answers are wrong, which can be especially frustrating. Speaking of the review questions, many of the questions can be quite obscure and appear to pull from material not found in the book.
I realize that the erata is made available online, but that shouldn't be a license for sloppy editing. Given the many errors, the frequency at which one would have to check back against the online erata would be tedious to say the least.
I would have given it four stars had it not been for the errors, and five stars had it been more geared toward exam prep.
If you want to actually be able to pass the test don't count on using just this book. I also read the exam prep guide and even between the two books there are still plenty of exam questions that you will not find the answer to in either book. Multiple study materials, a good lab environment to install and configure and run through all the commands in the various topic areas is a must.
very informational. There are a few typos, and a few of the questions seem to have incorrect answers, but I expect that with a 1st edition.
Example of incorrect question/answers seem to happen when asking a question like "Which of the following is NOT correct" then the answer key marks the ones that ARE correct, with explanations. The explanations are all right, but the answers themselves say "incorrect" and "correct" in the opposite spots.
I would recommend a more rigorous practice test system than this book offers if you want to pass your test :)

Update: I sat the exam a couple of weeks ago (and passed) however there was a lot of detail covered in the exam that was missing from the book especially around Hyper-V.
