  • Any word on the Exchange 2013 exam prep books?

  • For me, it depends on how much depth of content there is in the titles.  Your competitor is the TechNet library and Development Team Blogs.  If the title could achieve depth, say, more organized and beyond what is spelled out in the above two sources, you would have a winner.

    The two recent Hyper-V mini titles (networking and storage) were disappointing.  Great selection of chapter topics!  However, each chapter was much too short -- 4 or 5 pages in most cases, with few if any illustrations.  Something akin to the outdated Microsoft Private Key Security (PKI) book or the old Terminal Services book are examples of titles having considerable technical depth.

  • @Mike F - well said. We just read this out loud in our team meeting. So helpful.

  • And I suppose my comment was scrolled off the screen so you guys wouldn't have to look at it?  New professionals NEED the exam prep books in order to advance in our careers.  Please provide some information on their progress!

  • Great to see! For me, as the author, I'm really glad to finally be able to hold the products of months and months of hard work in my hands.
