Right now im reading from a 2nd edition Microsoft Official Academic Course book called Installing, Configuring, and Administering Microsoft Windows XP Pro. I was wondering are there any other books out there that you would recommend, and that pretty much gets straight to the point?

    I personally read the Sybex edition for this book. I like the Sybex series because they explain things real well, and it's very readable. It is less like a instruction manual, so it does lack on super in depth discussion of every detail but it does cover every subject on the exam.

    For me it was the fact that I could actually sit down and read it, so I found these series valuable. You can pick it up off of amazon for a few bucks.

    I have the Sybex book as well, I also ordered the FastPass.. which some people were talking up as a great review just before the exam. The Microsoft book for the 270 is confusing, IMO.

    This isn't the easiest test, there is a lot to know. Best of luck to you, and have fun with it.

    have the Sybex book as well. have jsut started, revising from it and it is really good, i find that if you use the CD with the book, you get the best out of it

    I passed on the first try with the MSPress book and technotes. There are also some free MCSE-type training vids on
