PartNo. X10-35339
Sub Part No. X10-23991


As I stated in an earlier review Zacker writes in a very accessible and easy-to-read manner. His prose is excellent and the way he presents his material makes it easier to learn and apply. As such this was one of two books I used to prepare for and write the Microsoft exam 70-290. The other book I used was from Dan Holme and Orin Thomas. Both books had advantages and disadvantages.


First, Zacker's book is much more compact, and gives you the quick and dirty. He hits the topics hard and fast. If you need to work through the material in the least amount of time, this is the book for you. Holme's and Thomas's book goes into much greater depth and specific exam preparation.

Zacker presents his material in a clear and methodical manner. His writing style is fluid and easily accessible. He has a knack for presenting complicated material in a way that helps clear it up quickly.
