A Really Really Good Book

This was by far one of the funnest exam preparation books I have ever read. I used it for the 70-652 cert along with the Hyper-V Insiders Guide and passed. The book is concise, (fun) and for the first time that I can recall actually prepared me for the test. The kit calls for 2 x64 computers w/4GB of RAM but I was able to use one with 8GB and an Intel Duo Core 3.00GHZ without a problem. For the most part... What I liked the most about this particular book is that each chapter built upon the previous chapter - yes you can say that that's standard with 90+% tech to learn books, but this one does it better IMO. Not only does it prep (you) for the test but I was able to put most of what I learned to use in my job. I will be using this book to further prep for the 70-403 exam - which means I will go over a few of the scenarios again and again... Had an instructor (CCNA) who used to say; "time versus material equals knowledge." At the time I thought he was being smug (and he very well may have been!)however he was right... Here's a gee whiz link for 70-403-->[...] <br /> <br />As much as I hate to say this (type), this has become my newest bathroom book!!! Many thanks to the authors!!!!! <br /> <br />

I passed both tests using this book

The team of Danielle and Nelson Ruest have written another fine book. Not only does it cover the material for the Microsoft 70-652 Windows Server Virtualization, Configuring exam (why didn't MS title this exam `Hyper-V', which is what it is all about???), but it also covers the material you need to take and pass the related Microsoft 70-403 System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM)exam as well. I used the book to help me learn the material, and passed both of the tests without a hitch. You will absolutely need to set yourself up a Hyper-V lab environment and then add SCVMM to it, as this material is too complex to actually master without much practice and experimentation. You should know that Hyper-V requires that you have a server with one or more 64 bit processors with both hardware virtualization and DEP support (be careful here, since not all 64 bit chips support hardware virtualization) and at least 8 gb of RAM to perform adequately, which is a bit more than many people have in their home lab. This is money well spent however, as all of the Microsoft server products going forward seem to require 64 bit processor support. The book is of moderate length (at least as 'geek' books go these days), and is highly readable. It even covers new features that came out with Windows Server 2008 R2, which means that it will be up-to-date for quite some time. It covers the theory, architecture and 'click, click, finish' material you need learn to use these products successfully in the real world. I found the case study style exercises in each chapter to be of particular merit. My hat is off to the author team for writing yet another wonderful book.

Great value -- Hyper-V, VMM, and R2 coverage

Just wanted to let readers know this Training Kit covers not only the 70-652 exam on Windows Server Virtualization (including practice tests), but also includes prep material for exam 70-403 on System Center Virtual Machine Manager, plus Hyper-V R2 content. Nelson and Danielle did an amazing job in making this book an exceptionally good value!
