Best Book & Study material for exam????
kovo Member Posts: 122
I have the Sybex text book and use this site as study material for this exam. Just wondering which book is favoured as the best source of study for this exam? I dont like the MS books they have too much fluff compared to the Sybex books. I use the sybex cd with heaps of practice Qs and nuggets to watch. Has anyone had success with this exam with the Sybex study material?
I've heard Syngress books are really good, although I've never read one myself
My personal favourites are CBT Nuggets and MSPress but a practice lab I believe is the best way to study for these exams unless you have hands on experience at work.
I give the Syngress 70-291 book 1.5 out of 10 stars. I give the MS Press 70-291 book 1.4 stars and the EC2 70-291 book 1.0 stars. I will say that the Syngress is the best of the three, but that ain't saying much. I have all three books, and i have been going back and forth between them - not the best way to study.
There is a lot to know for the 70-291 exam. I feel like am about 1/3 ready for the exam and i have been at study for 4 weeks. I will let everyone know how i do.
P.S if you want to make some money, write a GOOD study book for 70-291
I'm going to supplement with the MS Press book to fill in the blanks and and online cram guide I found. My employer also has tons of CBT's which I don't really like, but I will most likely use the self assesments to gauge my knowledge.
