Sitting for an certification is hard enough. Sitting for a certification where you're unsure what the exam will cover or if you're prepared...pure hell. This is where I've always found the Passport series to be exceptionally helpful, and "MCTS Windows Vista Client Config" is a great example of this. Detailed in what will be covered in the exam while not over-whelming you with excessive information that would do nothing but serve to confuse, I found this book to be incredibly helpful in prepping for the 70-620. Further, the style of writing was direct and easy to follow and not sleep-inducing (an accomplishment for a tech training manual). I would highly recommend this book to anybody who is looking to take the 70-620 exam.
This is a great book to have if you are going to sit for this exam. It's shorter than most of the big reference books, but it most certainly covers the objectives really well. If you think it doesn't hold a lot of information, then your wrong. I passed the Vista exam a month ago, using this as my primary study guide. I said primary, cause I also watched videos and took practice exams also to prepare. I recommended this book to anybody taking this exam. Not 5 stars cause I think you also need maybe a study guide, or videos, and don't forget the practice test, to prepare.
I looked through various MCSE exam books and this one is very intuitive. It's got great prep test questions and tips on passing the exam. Most books are vague on what Microsoft wants you to learn, but this book is right on the money when it comes to getting you ready for the exam. Highly recommended. If you want to pass your MSCE 620 exam you should pick this up.
This book gives you a quick summary of the relevant topics but without much depth. You will need other resources to pass the exam. Some of the topics it emphasizes, such as group policy, are not likely to appear in the exam.
