Very Good Broad Coverage,
This review is from: MCAD / MCSD Training Guide: Exam 70-320: Developing XML Web Services and Server Components with Visual C# .NET and the .NET Framework (Paperback)
I passed the 70-320 yesterday with a score of 951, after studying with this book. Coverage is very good. Be sure to download the errata from [...] Be aware that some examples need revision since the book was written/printed when the 1.0 Framework was current. In the COM+ section my initial efforts were thwarted by "Access Denied" when trying to use deployed COM+ components however those problems were solved by switching off security for the affected labs. If you've developed before, minor errors like that can be solved with ease. Be sure to study the XML produced by the visual designer and in general, do the end of chapter Apply Your Knowledge exercises, since it's through those exercises that much of the chapters main text is consolidated and understood.
I can also recommend the following books:
Microsoft's ".NET XML Web Services Step By Step" by Freeman/Jones as a beginners tutorial. Very easy, engaging and enjoyable.
"Remoting with C# and .NET" by David Conger. The writing style is excellent; I wish my technical writing was as good.
Altogther, Kalani did a good job on this one.
