I suppose I should write a review on this, since nobody else has.
I will shortly be taking the 1z0-047 exam, and I was looking for something to prepare me for the exam. Kind of like Steve O'Hearn's book but more condensed and specifically aimed at the exam - you know, lots of brief revision points, advice on traps, lesser-known aspects of topics, etc. - but none of the explanations of stuff that you would get in a bigger book. Kind of like your own revision notes, I guess, but better-structured. Well, I suppose this is condensed, at 146 pages starting from page 13 and printed on A5 sized paper, but it's really not much more than a brief summary of the main study objectives on the exam. You get nothing more than that. Really, if you rely on this to prepare you for the exam you will very likely fail. You're better off ignoring it entirely, and after having gone through O'Hearn's book (twice), and the attached CD exam simulator, you should probably just go straight to one of the online exam practice vendors, such as Kaplan, which is only $69 for a month's access, before going on to sit the exam. In short, I wouldn't advise buying this "book".
