Accomplishes Its Goal

Let me first say I have given this book a 5 star review because, in spite of its slightly detractive reception, it does what its meant to do and that is prepare you for the 3 exams that lead to an MCPD Web Developer designation. If you are buying this book to prepare for, and pass, the MCPD exams (3) for web development, then you will not be let down. I have just completed the first of the three exams and passed with no problems at all. How it helped me as a new developer: Being a relatively new developer (2 years), I found the 70-536 book to be a great resource as I stumbled through my first .NET applications. When faced with challenges before I had read the book I would google around for answers not knowing what exactly I was looking for. After I had read through the entire book just once my searching was significantly shortened as I would recall reading about x or y in the book and would pull up the ebook and browse my way to the topic I needed. I could then use the code samples as a 'framework' for how to structure my code to accomplish what I wanted. How I used this material to pass the first exam: I read the book once and then began taking the practice exams until I was consistently scoring 80 - 90%. At that point, make note of which questions you're still getting wrong and review that section in the book or print out just the answers to those questions and study them. Then, go back and take the practice tests and see how your score improves. Summary: If you're not an expert in .NET development already, you stand to learn plenty from this book set. You also have all the material you need to take and pass the exams so long as you study hard and take the practice tests. The book does have its faults. Typos and such. But, the books are designed to prepare you to pass the exams, not make your spell checker happy. Besides, I felt a little proud on more than one occasion when I looked at something that was incorrect in a code segment and knew immediately that it was wrong (and how to correct it). When you make those sort of observations, you're making progress. Anyway, aside from the above mentioned draw back, the material is pretty solid and gets the job done. The typos and such certainly do not take away from the books ability to deliver. You'll see other reviewers who've left poor ratings say the same. I highly recommend this set for anyone looking to progress in their career, take and pass the exams addressed by this set, and learn more about the .NET Framework along the way. There are other materials available out there if you prefer it. Just look for study materials for the individual exams, not the full MCPD collection. Regardless of how you proceed, good luck.

A very good colection towards certification

I purchased this book for Microsoft certification guidance. (As there aren't many good books in portuguese). I'd rate it 4 starts, because it's a really good book. They usually start with easy³ stuff, as adding forms and stuff like that. But they go deeper as you read the book. I do recommend it.

All you need to pass the MCPD Web Developer

I am an experienced developer, and used this set to pass the MCPD Web. It should be all anyone really needs. Everyone is different, by my recommendation is to use the books only for reference. Take the tests on the disk. Then for the questions you get wrong or find yourself guessing - look up the topic. Study for your weaknesses, otherwise anyone with experience working with this stuff is going to be rehashing everything they already know. I read people complain about how the books don't cover everything, and am at a loss to know what they could be talking about. If you know everything contained in the books or even possess about 85% of that knowledge, then there really is no way you can fail the tests.

Recommended for Anyone trying to become a "Better" programmer

Hey, you may not be going to go take the tests, but at the least find some time (if you can) and read these books. I am currently trying to find time to get through these books. While I know a fairly good amount of concepts, I want to be polished and complete to make my job much easier and increase my free time at home because of that. That leads to why you would want to read these books. These books explain things in a very straight forward manor. They at least in my opinion, side-step any jibberish and tell you the basic "why" for a lot of things. I feel that the author did a pretty decent job covering the subject in each book. Also, if you notice that most programming books typically use a smaller font, or just so much information or so much bold or what not, that your mind is just trying to process the formatting of one page. What I like about this book is Space. There is larger text and space. Makes you really focus in and read carefully page by page. Anyway, definitely decent books in my opinion here.

Great books for step by step learning.

I found these books very helpful. Most of the topics are very well explained and are related to the exam.
