What are some good books for this cert?

    My personal recommendations are Sybex for easy introduction and Ms Press for an indepth guide. Hope this helps.

    I got this book http://www.microsoft.com/MSPress/books/7870.asp It's a great book but it's too long. It is cool because it comes with a trial version of XP pro and 425 practice questions plus a 15% off exam voucher and the book in pdf with two other ebooks. I picked it up at Barnes and Noble for a little over 30USD. I thinking of getting the exam cram book for the 70-270 because I don't have the time to read all this crap. My CCNA books weren't even this long. But if your new to Windows it should be a great book.

    I'm using the Sybex book for this exam and I would say it covers a lot of fluff that you wouldn't need on the exam, but also that I think it covers almost everything that can be mentioned on the exam except for the SP2 stuff. And from what I have heard from others the SP2 questions are real easy and basic.

    All in all, I don't think that any single book can prepare you for everything an exam has to offer.
