Title: 70-271 Study guides and SP2
Post by: RD28327 on July 19, 2005, 02:39:08 AM
Am looking for study guides for the 70-271 exam. Seems like most of the study guides I've seen at the bookstores (70-270, 70-271, etc.) were published before SP2 came out. How much of the 70-270, 70-271 and even 70-272 exam questions specifically cover SP2? I just don't want to buy any outdated study guides.

Did use ExamCram2 and even the ExamCram2 Practice questions for when I took Network+ (exam N10-002). Even Network+ for Dummies was a big help! Any ideas on the best study books for the 70-271 exam? I would like to start at a basic level, build up my knowledge from there, and of course, pass the exam!

I used the books you mention and the following to pass 70-271 in May:

'Microsoft Windows XP Inside Out Deluxe', Second Edition. ISBN 0735620431

'Microsoft Windows XP Professional Administrator's Pocket Consultant', Second Edition. ISBN 0735621403


The Inside Out book expains things very well - the price is more than the standard edition, but worth it


Both cover SP2.

I used the Exam Cram books for the MCDST.  I thought they were fine for study.  I took it just recently after SP2 had been out a few months.  It shouldn't affect your exam.
