Official Microsoft training kits are the best. They explain things simply and they are pretty much detailed.

HASH(0x9a32df90) out of 5 stars MCITP training kit Nov. 6 2008
By Larry Ng - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Put this 3000-page training kit together with Stanek's 1500-page Windows Server 2008 Inside Out book and you have everything you need for the exams. One-stop shopping at its best. Stanek's book has the authoritative details, the nitty gritty, the tips and real world advice. This training kit puts you on the training path to Exams 70-640, 70-642, 70-643, and 70-647, maps out the objectives and gives you practice and review. Whenever I had a question or wanted more information one or the other came to the rescue. My only question is how come this kit is $229 for 3000 pages while a book like Inside Out is only $59 for 1500 pages. Surely Microsoft should bundle a print copy of Windows Server 2008 Inside Out at NO EXTRA COST with this expensive training kit to give a complete offering. Other than that, I think this is a good buy.

HASH(0x9a40e3b4) out of 5 stars Good product May 10 2010
By Harper Family - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been studying for the MCITP Enterprise Admin. I have been in the IT field for a long time and have read dozens of books. These books are good for passing the exams. They aren't anywhere near as detailed as the Unleashed books from Sams Publishing (the Orange books that go into MASSIVE detail), but they are to the point to pass the exam. You won't learn how Windows Server 2008 actually works under the hood, but you will learn what you need to pass the exams. If that is your goal, this is a good series to get. It's also a great product to start your training of Server 2008. Don't let it be the last books you buy because you won't know everything you need to know to do the job. The picture in the listing isn't quite right. The product matches the description, not the picture. 70-646 is NOT included, 70-643 IS included so don't be thrown off by this as I was after I ordered it and already had the 70-646 book. The Amazon price is incredible and you won't find it better anywhere else - trust me, I've looked. So, if you are planning on getting this, stop your search here and just buy it from Amazon. This set also includes 4 x 15% off vouchers for the exams. That brings the exam prices down to $106.25 each from $125.00. That will save you $75.00 so really it's even cheaper than the price listed! Happy reading!

HASH(0x9a40e1bc) out of 5 stars 70-643 Gotcha Nov. 19 2010
By Nick Debarmore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I just took the 70-643 test and be warned. The new test has many questions pertaining to Sharepoint Foundation 2010 and the integration with office webapps and outlook. None of that is covered in this book. I also used the examcram book to review before the test and it wasn't covered in there either.

HASH(0x9a40e7bc) out of 5 stars Passed my exams Aug. 24 2009
By L. Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This self-paced kit isn't something you can sit down and read for long periods as it's not friendly or easy reading. With this and a few other books I did pass my MCITP exams so I am thankful.

HASH(0x9a40e828) out of 5 stars More images, please July 12 2010
By adkisojk - Published on Amazon.com

I've only read the first two books so far.

I'm a visual learner. Microsoft seems to be going the way of requiring more be done at a command prompt vs. with a GUI. While this is a good thing for automation purposes, it's going back to the days where people have to memorize commands. While this, in itself, is not a reflection on the authors of the books, I would appreciate more screen-shots and more conceptual drawings to drive-home the teachings.

The good: It's a great value. I could have spent more money on other books and practice exams that wouldn't have provided as much value. Plus, there's a coupon inside giving you 15% off of all the exams (worth ~$60)!

Make sure you look-up the Microsoft KB article listing all the errors in the books before reading them! There are several.
