    CBT nuggets have a free video on SP2, I would just go over the free video and pay attention only to the enchancements that SP2 delivers...
    What next?

    Do you by chance have the link to the free SP2 nugget? I went to the site and I can't find a free video about SP2.

    Thanks

    I got this version. I think the book is great.
    Don't tell co-workers your going for a Cert that they don't have. They may think your trying to take their job.

    This book i would recommend. It has a nice CD with some helpful practice exams and simulations and good content.

    make sure if you are getting books that they are updated with SP2

    I got the Sybex for the 2005; but it's in ebook though. Don't ask me how I got it.

    It's a good book. I used it along with some others and managed to pass. Its coverage of SP2 is really pretty small, mostly on Windows Firewall. Of course, this is totally proportional to the test. I only had 1 SP2 question, and it was on... Windows Firewall. icon_lol.gif

    IMO, In comparison to MS Press, Sybex seems rather general. I have studied a couple of chapters of the Sybex 2005, and picked up the 2005 MS Press book at the bookstore and found that MS Press explain more thoroughly than the Sybex. Perhaps of the style of writng, layout, or the fonts used by MS Press, this book might seem like college text. But as I got used to reading the book, it seems that the writing is straight forward and concrete in the info.
    I would suggest the Sybex book for someone that has worked with XP on a regular basis, whereas the MS Press for someone who is starting out with XP and want to take this test.
    Any other opinions?
