Title: MCAD/MCSD Self-Paced Training Kit: Developing Windows-Based Applications with Microsoft Visual Basic.NET and Microsoft Visual C#.NET, Second Edition
Publisher: Microsoft Press

Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5
Passed (70-306), but not because of this book....


This book did not contain nearly enough information to pass the exam, nor do I think it should. If you want to pass the exam, DEVELOP APPLICATIONS, and practice! To pass the exam you will need to be comfortable with all the topics covered in this book and expand your knowledge in each area using MSDN. The only real way to get a good grasp on the topics covered in this book is to use VB.NET and do a lot of coding.

Nothing wrong with the content, but you will need much more to pass the exam. Code, code, code.....

Good Luck!

Excellent coverage of Servlet programming


Jason Hunter has an excellent writing style that really helped me understand what servlets are and how they work. The information is presented in a way that I can work with for developing solutions quickly. I especially like the say Jason Hunter de-mystifies this particular Web technology. Great job! Hope to see another way on EJB or XML soon!!
