4.0 out of 5 stars A good companion for the exam 16 April 2014
By ben
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Using nothing but the material in this book, it is possible to pass exam 70-486 (I have done so today).

There was really only a single problem I had with the book: there are relatively few code examples, but the information contained in the examples is extremely important. You'll want to take note of the syntax used in all of the example code and make sure you understand it completely (and, similarly, that you'd be able to identify if something did not adhere to this syntax).

The book is split into precisely the objectives that appear on the exam, and the example questions it gives in its objective reviews are extremely similar in tone and content ot the question on the exam.

in short, this book isn't a holistic overview of ASP.NET MVC 4 nor does it pretend to be - it's a fairly unforgiving but ultimately complete guide to the exam. Don't scan through it, study it closely and it'll give you everything you need to pass.

My company bought this book to assist me in completing the Microsoft 70-486 exam. I had already completed the Pluralsight online tutorials for MVC so this book was really to get me prepared for the exam as although the exam states it is MVC, in reality only 50% is on MVC. The rest is on configuration, Azure, etc.
There is not a lot of code in this book, so you need to do quite a bit of supplementary research on how to do a few things. I found the questions at the end of each section really helpful as it challenged what you learned and how to apply it in the real world. This proved invaluable for questions in the test.
I scored quite highly in the exam and I think it is related to going through this book constantly until you can answer all the summary questions with confidence and playing around with MVC. I will be getting the next book in the series to help with the next exam!

Good luck to all you test takers!

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst books I've ever read 25 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The chapters are long, there are very few code samples/exercises, the "Thought Experiments" are drab, the book doesn't really cover all the topics needed to sit the exam, and its dreadfully boring. Don't waste your money on this.
