If you want to pass the exam (yes sir, me sir) then working through the examples in this book are the way to go. The chapter-ending questions are good for reinforcement but having done the Measure Up tests I would recommend them if you have the inclination. However, if you're starting with ASP.NET development then this book is as good as any. Onion's book is an excellent compliment for the detail and on page processing & security. Kalani's book here will get you up and running - just skim the first chapter as it digs a little deep on events for us ASP converts. I got this book 2 years ago when I first started ASP.NET and have since used it directly for learning about validation controls, data access, user controls, deployment and use of the cache. It's very clear, easy on the eye, and I keep the pdf version of the book (which is on the CD) with me at all times. Use of English might be an issue if you're into that sort of thing but to be honest the re-reading of certain places made me learn more. Money well spent (unless you snaffled it from your last place of work).
