Well I did pass the exam but more from using Windows 2008 and TechNet than this guide....

As mentioned before there are no MP3s or other revision help, the CD has a PDF of the book on it and that is it...

I bought this book as it was the only one that covered the subject but I must admit if I was doing it again I would most likely buy the three MS-Press books that cover the three subjects, rather than this.

The book is an upgrade book yet again and again it is clear that sections of this book have been pasted from other more beginner orientated books.

Also more than once in the book were whole sections where the author had forgotten to change 2000 to 2008 after he had pasted a section of text.

Do not get me wrong this is not a bad book, but it is not up to par with the old exam-cram series that I used to use.

The front page says this book contains test exams and mp3 tracks, but none of these are available from the web site as promised. I sent an email to the Syngress customer service, but they still haven't answered me today, two weeks later. :(

The book itself is pretty good, and covers a lot of good stuff for the exam. However it's really obvious that the author gets paid by the number of words, and the book would really benefit from being shortened down by about 200 pages.

Also, I still think it's weird that they are assuming that the reader knows nothing about previous Windows versions, dispite the fact that this is an upgrade exam.

Completely agree with K. Doswell, better off buying the Microsoft press books. There are too many subjects in the exam that are not even mentioned in this book. Along with spelling mistakes, grammatical mistakes and typos that leave you thinking there are new acronyms - but it's just the writer got the letters the wrong way. I passed the exam but more from reading on Technet. Will be sticking with Microsoft, Sybex and Exam Cram for future exams. This book will get you familiar with many new 2008 features but not enough to pass the exam.

One of the few MCSE 2k3 upgrade books available it is unfortunately incomplete and full of errors. It is OK for a starting point but you will need to do a lot of supplementary reading to fill in the glaring gaps that this books leaves when compared to the syllabus.
