The book has several information, several errors too. The errors can be corrected by going to the Microsoft web site (press). The book skims through several topics required for the exam. But, the exam focuses on in-depth information. You will find questions in the exam that is not directly provided in this book. For example, the attribute [ClassInterface(ClassInterfaceType.None)] used for specifying how the .Net class should be exposed to COM objects is not mentioned anywhere in the book, but it was asked in the exam. There are several other such examples. Also, there are several notes in the book that says that it is important for the exam. But, the exam does not cover those topics at all. In another one of the review for this book, someone had mentioned about buying Transcender. You can buy Transcender if you want to learn about the topics. But, as far as the exam goes, you may find a question or two that is anywhere similar to those in the Practice exams. For each of the topics, you need to use MSDN web site for in-depth information. And you need to cram the properties and methods. For instance, there is a question about which property to use to check whether a method is accessible to a derived class when using reflection. The correct answer is IsFamily. But, there is no way you can remember this without cramming. It is virtually impossible for every developer to have experience in every topic covered in this book. By the way, I passed this exam after two months of rigorous study.

About me: 15 years in the IT industry. 12 of those in Microsoft technology. Master's degree in Computer Science.

The majority of reviews of this book are quite right in that it is a good preparation guide, but the plethora of errors can cause some confusion. Microsoft has posted the corrections for the book, but the best way to overcome the errors is to go through the practice tests and look up questions you feel you are right about. Additional reading is a must and missed questions are the best prompt to guide you to additional resources.

While definitely a thick book, the content is extremely detailed. Though keep in mind that there are many ways to reach any given end or effect - the various authors programming / example styles expose the reader to a few ways to expressing the same result, which is quite beneficial.

In terms of organization, this book is very good, especially considering that multiple authors were involved. The only chapter that merits additional scrutiny is the security chapter, which helps throughout the book, as security considerations are sprinkled throughout.

In summary, with a moderate amount of experience with .NET (2.0+), this book is an excellent primer for the test and provides the requisite understanding of the framework to prepare one for the exam. The only caveat I found was that for people with .NET 3.0 or 3.5+ experience, some of the methods may be a slight bit different due to minor changes between 2.0 and 3.5.

I took the exam today....and....passed. Phew! This is one VERY tough exam to study for. I spent about 200 hours preparing for this exam. The exam is very broad and very deep. I bought this book and used the Transcender.

The book was poorly edited and had mistakes that which stated certain "facts" that turned out to be outright wrong. The book itself barely gets you going for the material you'll need to know. I admit that the 302 test questions were helpful, though. When you start taking some of those sample tests, you'll realize how quickly the book material was lacking. The Transcender really helped cover a lot of other ground that this book didn't. Oddly enough, the test still pulled some punches on material that was covered in neither, unless you plan to go very deep on every topic which is next to impossible.

This book might be the only reasonable paper resource out there, especially with the test questions, so just be forewarned....be careful...and you'll have to study deeper than you might expect in various areas.

The pluses:
- It covers the items in the exam and gets you basically familiar with them.
- It has the practice tests CD which is very helpful.

The minuses:
- It doesn't cover the items in the exam enough to pass the exam.
- It has many errors.
- It is poorly written so that you don't always understand fully what can or can't be done with the item you are studying.
- Most of the time you will need to look at MSDN or the Framework help to get the full concept of the item you are studying.
- Some of the lesson test questions are out of order so you get asked about something that isn't covered until the next chapter or lesson.

Overall:
I'm glad I got it. It is going to help me get through the exam, but it could be a much better product if more care had been taken in its production.

This books structure makes it very easy to get a chapter a night done and prepare you for the exam. The labs are good and the accompanying DVD contains both practice exams and a trial version of Visual Studio 2005, so you have everything you need in one book.

This exam is only half of an MCTS qualification, so you'll need either the Web Development or Windows Development to go with it if you want an actual qualification.

I only had issue with one or two of the answers given to questions, but I found it quite encouraging that I was able to think 'hey, that's not the best way to achieve that'.
