4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough for the 70-236 cert, 8 Feb 2008
By J. dean
First the negatives
+ Loads of mainly minor editing mistakes everywhere, the main body of the text and Q+A at the end of every chapter,
+ The additional tests on the CD are pretty good, but annoyingly the Q+A are not alligned with the book. In most cases you have to go through 2 chapters before being able to test yourself.
+ In the last chapter LCR is not taken through its logical conclusion.
+ The online site does not provide an errata/corrections list.

+ Covers the material well enough
+ Each chapter has at its end a Q+A section, to re-enforce learning.
+ You get Exchange 2007 32bit+64bit on to DVD plus additional questions on a CD.
+ loads of screenshots, text pretty easy to read

I used this as my main study tool and passed with 96%, so it does what it says.

I would give it 5 stars, if it didnt has so many annoying errors. I think it is unfair and too harsh to lose more than a single star, as

1. This is a technical book and it has a limited life span (3 years max).
2. The authors and publisher are in a race to produce the book for people like me, I rather have the book now with a few errors rather than wait for another 3 months.
3. Most of the errors probably will be corrected with time.

This is a good book, it gives an excellent overview of the requirements for taking the 70-236 Examination and covers all the main points in a clear and consise manner.

The exercises are very useful and I would definitely recommend that you do them when doing your studies. My copy had a 64bit evaluation copy of Exchange 2007 but I had to download the 32 bit evaluation copy from Microsoft's website to work on my home virtual environment.

As well as this book I would heartily suggest that you use Microsoft's Technet Library and webcasts to get the complete picture and to cover everything you need.

4.0 out of 5 stars Got me through, but not everything covered 5 Jun 2010
As my title says, I got through the exam using the book and practice tests (included), but there were a few topics on the exam that were no where to be found in the book, not even mentioned.

I'm scoring high because I bought the book to pass the exam, and it did its job.

4.0 out of 5 stars MS Press deliver again 8 Dec 2010
Typical ms press book, good quality covering all you need to know for passing an exam.
The only downside was the delivery was late due to the courier. One email to amazon and it got sorted straight away.
