4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent succinct reference for the Exam, 13 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Exam Ref 70-417: Upgrading Your Skills To MCSA Windows Server 2012 (Paperback)
Perfect for a "fast track" study route for those that are already Windows 2008/82008R2 certified. No padding, all you need to know in around 300 pages. Only reason for 4 stars is no accompanying CD/DVD/ or supporting software files (i.e. eBook version or practice test freebies).

This review is from: Exam Ref 70-417: Upgrading Your Skills To MCSA Windows Server 2012 (Paperback)
After reading this book cover to cover and certain section numerous times I can only echo some of the previous comments here - it's concise, to the point and it really does a good job of introducing the new technologies in Windows Server 2012.

As it says in the introduction, this book covers 80% of the exam topics while the remaining 20% comes from features that haven't changed. To be honest if you're a server administrator you'll likely be able to answer these questions but as always Technet and Microsoft labs are good accompaniments.

This review is from: Exam Ref 70-417: Upgrading Your Skills To MCSA Windows Server 2012 (Paperback)
I passed the 70-417 exam using this, some video training, and lots of practical experience. As an exam book it does not go into masses of technical detail ( there is the Microsoft web site or other training materials for that) and rather should be used as a revision aid to point you in the right direction. This exam is a composite of three smaller exams, so the level of detail needed if you wanted to cover all three in detail is not feasible in a revision aid
The book covers all the necessary exam topics, highlights key point and backs it up with questions after each one.

My only minor criticism is that every few pages there was yet another section along the lines of ‘this may come up but may not , so learn everything else as well ’ that was largely unnecessary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just enough for the Microsoft Exam, 11 Aug 2013

This review is from: Exam Ref 70-417: Upgrading Your Skills To MCSA Windows Server 2012 (Paperback)
The book doesn't cover each technical objective in much detail. However, it covers enough material in order to successfully pass certificate exam. Make sure you have Windows 2008 skills before reading this book and it will just flow

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good book, 28 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Exam Ref 70-417: Upgrading Your Skills To MCSA Windows Server 2012 (Paperback)
Covers everything you need to know, but like most Microsoft books it does need some extra reading with some other material such as CBT Nuggets or another text book. Definitely a must if you are dong 70-417.

This review is from: Exam Ref 70-417: Upgrading Your Skills To MCSA Windows Server 2012 (Paperback)
Until I take the exam I won't know quite how accurate this book is, but at least it focuses you for the upgrade exam. It's concise, to the point and a surprisingly quick read. If nothing else it steers you in the direction of the key areas to study for this exam.
