Format: Paperback
This was the first book I purchased when studying for the 70-632 exam. What a dissapointment it turned out to be. It became obvious from the start that the book was poorly written, not very easy to follow and did not go into enough detail for many of the topics. Indeed on many occasions it refered you to the Microsoft website for articles written by Microsoft. I had already purchased the Ultimate Learning Guide from MSPROJECTEXPERTS, and what a difference there was. Although not specifically written with exam certification in mind, the Ultimate Learning Guide is a far superior book.
If you are thinking of buying this book, do yourself a favour, forget it . There are many other books to choose from. I dont think I have ever been as frustrated or as dissapointed as I was while trying to study from this book.

By AquaViola TOP 500 REVIEWER on 19 Jun. 2014
Format: Paperback
This is a fairly hefty book - over 500 pages - and is ideal if you are using Microsoft Project 2007.

However, exam 70-632 no longer exists - so why get this book?

If you are studying for exam 74-343 for Microsoft Project 2013, there are still reasons to get this book.

Firstly, there are no official study guides for 2013; this 2007 is the latest one there is.

Secondly, by not being able to show you where on the ribbon commands are (because the ribbon did not exist in 2007), it forces you to find them for yourself - and as being able to say where commands are is such an important part of this exam, this is an excellent way to learn.

Given that you can buy it new from third-party sellers or second-hand for just a few pounds, the book should be worth considering. There is, however, quite an errata list, which can be frustrating, such as the question which asked you to pick 2 answers, but the correct answer used 3 answers, not 2. Because of these mistakes, and the fact it is out-of-date, only 3 stars.

Format: Paperback
This book is fine if you're looking to run through the various bits of MS Project needed to take the Exam 70-632: TS: Microsoft Office Project 2007, Managing Projects. It recommends the PMBOK which I didn't bother with (I've done PRINCE2 and hoped this would cover it!). There are a few noticeable gaps but it is never going to be a brain dump for the exam (nor should these guides be that). There are a few sections where it states the bleeding obvious (I hate being told how to copy and paste for example) but then the target audience is PMs who might not be as techie as programmers.

As these guides go this is one of the better ones I've seen - if a little dry. If you're planning to buy it to learn how to use Project from scratch it probably isn't the right book though it did take me through some areas I'd not seen before and I feel like a more rounded MS-Project user now (I might not have memorised the menu option like the sample questions expected but at least I know it's there somewhere.... and MS Projects menus are a complete mess!).

Best Exam Prep Guide for MCTS: 70-632 22 Sept. 2008
By Gadget Gal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I used this book to prepare for the MCTS: 70-632 and passed it on my first try using this book and years of experience with Microsoft Project 2003 and recently Microsoft Project 2007. The practice exam on the CD was pretty good - there were about 5 questions out of 200 where I and even the other Microsoft Project 2007 did not agree with the author. If you are studying for the certification, go through every page, chapter test and the CD. Also, you will need to understand a lot Task Type and Effort Driven Scheduling (predict durations, work calculations and overall impact to your WBS), Resourcing Project Plans (forecasting time-phase generic skills, using resource pools.

I estimated about 50 percent was technical (using Project 2007) and 50 percent knowledge on Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK).

Great tool but.... 11 Dec. 2008
By Przemek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is really great if want to get prepared for to the exam. I used it and passed the exam on my first try. The only problem that I exeperienced was that the real exam questions were different than in this book and in the training simulator that comes with the book. First of all there are 55 questions on the exam not 45. Secondly the questions are (or were for me) tougher than these in the book. It is better while preparing for the exam to combine this book with the other set of exam questions (i.e. IT Exams King - which Microsoft recommends on its web site).

One of the best exam prep guides I have read 3 Sept. 2008
By DJ_King_SD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have prepared for/taken/passed over 12 certification exams from Microsoft, Sun, and PMI, so I have read my share of exam guides. Having successfully passed this exam, I would comfortably rate this as one of the best out of all that I have read in terms of quality and accuracy.

The exercises and questions at the end of each chapter are extremely effective in helping you learn to use Project 2007. The software simulator (provided by MeasureUp) is quite good and runs very smoothly.

Overall: Highly recommended!

Material good, questions maddening 24 Oct. 2008
By T2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a well-organized, step-by-step guide to preparing for the exam, but the practice Q&A and the exam simulator need some work. On many questions, the book neglects to tell you how many answers it is looking for, while the actual MCP exams are always very specific (Select one, Select #, Select all that apply). Some of the questions are also poorly worded: "You want to use Project's standard working times for tasks with defined start and finish dates but not defined times. Which two options offer a place where can you [sic] make all the changes?" The word "its" or "the" being omitted prior to "defined times" makes this question confusing if not unintelligible. (Frankly, I didn't notice the "can you" until typing this just now).

The exam simulator, for concentrating on specific objectives, doesn't work well either. The provided objectives don't map directly to the book, so if you want to review the material from a specific chapter, you're out of luck.

A plus is where the book specifically highlights differences between MSP 2007 and 2003, which, as an expert MSP user, is the main reason I selected this book.

A book that will help you pass the exam but not perfect 6 May 2010
By Book Worm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just passed the exam using this book only. To those who plan to take the exam, prepare to be shocked when you see the real exam questions. They are totally different!In the exam, there are 46 questions in 130 minutes. Some of the test areas are not explained in the book at all. But most of them are covered in the book. You need to study hard and use the questions and training kit to test yourself whether you really understand the concepts if they are tested in a different way. I feel that the explanations of answers in the book and training kit are not quite to the points sometime. Also in the book I found some typos and mistakes. In real exam, there is no "Show Exhibit" button. Actually the exam will show the chart or table as a picture together with the question.
