Top Customer Reviews
However, in trying to studiously work through the 900ish pages I found that the sheer amount of text (read waffle) clouded understanding of the technical subjects. Since reading this book, I've had the opportunity to look at the Hucaby book and have found it's explanations to be far more concise and would personally recommend that title for exam preparation.
Additionally, I'd say that these books aren't quite enough to pass the exams on their own - a good quality exam simulator, will come in very handy.
I did not like how technical concepts were presented to the reader as this just created confusion on arguments I was sure to know, I own the Official Certification Guide as well and gotta tell I would suggest to buy that book to prepare for the exam instead of this. one.
