70-647 Books

Just wondering what books/resources people have used for the 647 exam. Currently looking at this one Amazon.com: MCITP Guide to Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Enterprise Administration (Exam # 70-647) (Mcts) (9781423902393): Darril Gibson: Books

As I've liked Darril Gibson's books that I've used in the past. Anyone here used this book? Thoughts, opinions?

    I am using the MS Press Training Kit R2, as well as the links on this site. The TK seems very comprehensive. I have also used the product for about 2 years now. I plan on taking the test in the first week of December or so.
    MCSE Cloud Platform and Infrastructure, MCSA Windows Server 2012, MCSA SQL Server 2012/2014, MCSA Windows 10, MCITP Server Admin, Security+, Virtualization with Windows Server Hyper-V and System Center Specialist

    I used it and found it to be pretty good. It's not updated for the R2 content though.
    I found the MS Press Training kit to be most helpful. You should especially study the case scenarios as those type of questions comprise a large portion of the exam. Also be sure to study extra technology areas such as SCCM and SCVMM and forefront.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    Thanks for the info. I was wondering about that since it doesn't say that it includes R2 topics, but assumed that since it lists 2010 as the date it was published that it would. I guess I'll just go with the MS Press, I was going to use it along with this one anyway, but perhaps I'll just skip the Darril Gibson book.
