Not Enough for Exam 29 Feb. 2008
By M. Rana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book is good source for starting up in BI SQL Server but perhaps not enough to pass exam. I gave exam last week after only preparing this book , didn't pass .. the questions were so different from the one given with book practice test and also advanced knowledge was required . I think its good idea to use one of the practice test i.e SelfTest etc and learn online whats left off.

Do not buy this book 2 May 2008
By simply - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has not been properly edited to ensure that all instructions are correct. The book consistently references the wrong items (db names) or asks the reader to perform a step that can't be completed because an item does not exist. EXAMPLE: pg 303, Ex.1 Step 7. There is no 'subcategory' field in the 'dscategory' dataset. I think this error is becauase pg 294, steps 12 & 16 have the names reversed. These authors stink.

Great book to help pass the 70-445 exam 14 May 2009
By Zetagirl66 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just passed the 70-431 exam. I took a class and we used the Mircosoft Tool Kit book. It was a self paced course so there wasn't classroom lectures. The book was great ! I passed the exam on the first try. Which prompted me to go it alone and purchase this book 70-445. I found the text easy to understand and could follow the examples and practices very easily. The questions in the toolkit are directly related to the actual exam questions that you will sit for.

Terrible exam prep kit 21 Oct. 2008
By ch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Do not expect to pass the exam with this training kit. I read each chapter, completed all exercises, and repeated all simulation tests several times. The questions on the real exam are MUCH harder. I was extremely disturbed to fail because of this kit. And yes, there are quite a few of instructional typo errors that will have you going in circles.

As good as,if not better than, attending the corresponding the MS intructor led training 3 Oct. 2008
By nornal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have attended the intructor led MS trainings.

Because you dictate your own pace, reading the book and diligently going thru the exercises is as good as,if not better than, attending the corresponding the MS intructor led trainings.
