4.0 out of 5 stars Good Solid Material, Sept. 29 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is another excellent resource that will help provide a foundation for learning the material to pass the exam but Office 365 is an ever moving target so be prepared for things changing regularly. As a reference for PowerShell commands used this is also excellent. Recommended as a companion resource to the 70-346 exam reference written by the same author.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Resource When Paired with Other Materials, Aug. 13 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's a pretty good book but don't rely solely on this for study materials. This is an excellent reference for the exam, I passed today, and points out a bunch of stuff you'll want to know if you're prepping for the exam. This is a complementary resource when used with MVA, cbt videos, and anything else you can get your hands on to study with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Foundation for Custom Builds, March 7 2014
It looks great out-of-the-box and lives up to the quality you'd expect from a case like this. Well constructed, all metal, with rubber gaskets internally for cable management. Three large 120mm fans are included with mounts for four more, or a cpu cooler and two fans. All around excellent quality, loads of space, and looks good to boot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Learning Reference, Dec 21 2011
This is an excellent resource for exam prep (what I used it for) or for general use in day-to-day support of Microsoft's System Center Configuration Manager 2007. The info is excellent with lots of detail and a tonne of images. The only downside that I could "see" was the size of the images. They were a touch too small and even with my specs on I had a difficult time reading the details. Otherwise, I can highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fact Filled, Action Packed History, Nov. 4 2010
Over-flowing with historical facts that will raise an eyebrow at the number of now famous people involved with the events surrounding the taking of Quebec, and New France, from the French. Dan Snow is an excellent story teller making the historical events extremely interesting. Once I got started with this book I had a hard time putting it down.

4.0 out of 5 stars Filled with Solid Information, June 6 2009
This book was a useful training tool in my preparation for the 70-649 exam. The technical level is above what is required to pass the exam however and I found some of the detail somewhat overwhelming. There was an excess of some of the inner workings that I don't think was necessary. The screen captures were just that slight bit too small for tired eyes. I recommend this book paired with a good virtual lab setup for success on the exam.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Content from Ear to Ear, June 6 2009
Season six is as good as the rest. Filled with hilarity and hijinks from the whole Simpson family and the rest of the Springfield gang. The only downside is the plastic head box. Skip it and get the normal box.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite Good, Jan. 3 2006
This review is from: Daniel Powter (Audio CD)
It's easy to listen to. Daniel has a good voice and the music he's singing suits him. The reference to a "young Elton John" works. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this disc and I think you will too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely Laid Out and Easy to Use. Useful Maps, Sept. 27 2004
It's light and compact and has some useful maps. We used the hotel suggestions but in most cases the ratings were off, if it says 3 stars assume 1.5-2 stars. Take ear plugs. Almost all of the hotels were in noisy areas. Many of the suggested eating places were also off the mark. Extensive menus would be met with three or four options available. The guides to sights and towns to visit were very good. We used the walking tours and maps to navigate through the country quite comfortably. Assume you'll be ripped off by every taxi driver and you'll be ok. It's still very inexpensive to travel in Tunisia. And this book is very handy to have along for the ride.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Background Info/Poorly Arranged, Sept. 27 2004
This review is from: Paris (Hardcover)
It's a hefty book and you don't want that when you're walking around Paris for a few days or longer. This book has a lot of excellent photos, some pretty good maps, and lots of excellent background info. That being said it's not really got any "flow" to how to find info in it. It was difficult to go back to find the next item on the list if you were following one of the walking tours and in some cases important things to see either weren't listed on the maps or were hard to find. I would say buy this to read on the plane on your way over then leave it in the hotel room and opt for something better organized and lighter.
