    Best material is very subjective. I would say whatever you used and liked for the other exams should suffice. I like the MS Press books myself, combined with CBT Nuggets.


    You should also be familiar with the skills being tested:

    As far as how many questions, I don't know and I wouldn't worry about it. I don't think MS calls them SIMS, but you will probably have one or more Hot Area or Drag and Drop questions.
    All things are possible, only believe.

    What is the ISBN for the MS Press Book or any number/description for ordering?

    Just a word of advice. I have heard from several coworkers that the MSPRESS book for 70-293 is very terrible and they all recommended Syngress. I took their advice and bought the Syngress book which was only around $8 from their website. The Syngress book was well written and helped me prepare for the 70-293 exam pretty well. I then used my coworkers MSPRESS book and read the chapters on Clustering and Certificates which were sub par compared to the chapters that were in the Syngress book.

    I used the MS Press book for this exam and I thought it was very poorly written. The first 3 chapters were almost exclusively covering stuff that anyone taking this exam should already know.

    I read the Sybex book as well, which was a little better, but still not great. I just read some of the reviews on Amazon for the MS Press book and most of the bad ones are right on with how I felt about the book. I would recommend getting some Transcender practice exams to go with whatever book you choose.

    At any rate ... good luck!
