Newbie MCSA Questions

Hey all,

I'm thinking about self studying the MCSA: Security, and I was wondering if there is a recommended book list? I have the MCSE set from Microsoft, and I was wondering if anyone had some other recommendations. Also, what's the best source for practice tests that are not considered braindumps or duplicate the actual exam questions?

Thanks,

Will Highsmith

    I think that CBT nuggets and the Microsoft press books along with a lab environment will do you good. As far as the practice tests go, I recommend Transcenders.
    Good luck on your studies :)

    Set up a good lab. I used CBT for the 291. The MS press book for the 291 is good, the 293 book is dry for the first 3 or 4 chapters. I have heard the sybex books are good as well.
    I have used the MS press questions to study and they are challenging.

    Hit up technet and the resources here and you should be good

    There is a site call proprofs, that has some fairly good practice questions.

    Good Luck

    I just checked out that site, the questions for this exam are rubbish.
    Decide what to be and go be it.
