This review is from: MOS 2010 Study Guide for Microsoft Word Expert, Excel Expert, Access and SharePoint Exams (Paperback)
Good study guide, but a couple of REALLY confusing things. Firstly, book gives a discount on exam voucher, but when you can try to buy it, at right on certiport web site there is a notice: Practice Tests Vouchers (For Use in U.S. Authorized Testing Centers Only!). Although description is: The Microsoft Office Specialist 2007/2010 exam voucher can be redeemed at any Certiport Center (authorized testing center). So... Is this voucher valid in UK or not?? Secondly, with voucher you buy Learning Plan Assessment which lets to see are you ready for the exam or not. But! We buy this book to get ready to pass, for example, Excel Expert exam, but Learning Plan Assessment is only available for MOS 2007! So, should I check am I ready for... MOS 2007 instead 2010? Learning plan is VERY different... It looks outstanding confusing.

By the way, passed exam after a month of preparation. The only thing is not comprehensively explained is formulas. Though, typical MS Office help topics cover this area quite well.

I'm too looking at the MOS expert exams and would you recommend this as a good guide to work from? I would say I'm ok on Word but not so good with Excel. Is it worth the buy to have for future reference?

I did not work with MS Excel 2010 before started studying MOS, so I found the info useful not just to pass the exam, but also it gave me good knowledge of some new features, Pivot Tables, for example. Guide is just essential to prepare for exam: the info is just exactly what was in real exam, although exam questions are quite difficult. The only thing is formulas - I fail on real exam first time and had to pay extra 50 pounds for a second attempt, and the reason was formulas. But no worries, just go through Excel help topics covered formulas, mentioned in the MOS guide - get more practice (read all examples in different situations, create your own examples) and you will not have any problem. Good luck!
