Absolute excellent book

I stayed up all last night reading Chris' new book. As with his previous books, this is easy to read and I enjoyed every single page. I will be keeping it by my side for quite some time as I delve more into WinForms programming. Thanks Chris for your excellent insights and once again, a fabulous book.

Passed my exam, but not with this book alone.

I passed my 70-270 exam today with a score of 907. The exam was difficult and brutal. Yet, I'm confident anyone can pass the exam if they study the right material intensely. Is the Exam Cram book the right material? All I can say for this book is that it's a good place to start. It will give you a good overview of the topics you need to master, but don't expect to pass using only this book! You'll need to dig much deeper and supplement your studying with other books, online references, and "Help and Support" library that comes with XP. While generally well written, the book falls short in some areas like networks. I suggest also buying Exam Cram Network+ as well as books on Server 2003. These will help give you the big domain picture that you really won't get with just the 70-270 book alone. When you start dreaming about Group Policy then you know you're close to being readying for the exam. As for the CD that comes with this book, my advice is to rip it out and throw it away. It's simply an advertisement for a practice test service and not a very good one at that.

If you communicate through visualization, this book is essential. Well-written, beautifully designed, lavishly illustrated, copiously exampled -- it's all here. I've been developing visual communications for nearly 25 years, and this book caused me to completely rethink how I do it.
