Too bad Exam Ref 70-414 book by Microsoft Press has been again posponed, this time for October 2013. Some time ago it was September, even earlier April, etc. Moreover, say good bye to old-style classic Training Kits from Microsoft Press. Now to learn new skills you can use two types of paper resources: Exam Refs and Training Guide. The difference is, as explained on MS blog: „Exam Refs are designed to give experienced professionals an exam objective-by-exam objective tour of the certification exam.” while „The new Training Guide series is a wonderful orientation to the job role for a less prepared candidate.” Which is good – if you’re more familiar with the subject you can buy a shorter (and cheaper) Exam Ref and do your research with Technet. Which I did for MCSE as Exam Ref is rather a condensed compendium of topic you need to learn to take (and pass) the exam.
