I have a 70-410 study guide by Will Panek and it doesn't cover everything I need to know for the exam. Unfortunately, everyone says the Microsoft books don't either! I was looking into CBT Nuggets and TrainSignal aka PluralSight. I'm not sure what to do... time is limited for me and there's so many different things out there.

Another way I found of studying for the exam was to go through the exam objectives in a test environment. www.microsoft.com/.../exam-70-410.aspx, take the first topic Install and configure Servers it has the topics under that and you can attempt them in test lab. I found this way to be helpful when I wrote my exams
The 70-410 books covers enough to pass the exams I think. But I has never been the case with Microsoft exams, that the books will cover everything, because you are challenged that way to investigate topic yourself and bring your own experience with is a pre-req for every exam. When I did the 2003 or 2008 exams I also had to investigate several topics myself and bring my own experience and knowledge into the exams :). A book covers the topics at the a certain level and with extra own research and practice I'm sure you will be able to pass the exams :). The video based training is also a very good preparation, just sit back and watch :). Passing exams is always combination of doing work in a lab and trying things, studying books, research on TechNet or other resources on the web, and optionally video training :). Hope this helpful for you.

Hi Joe, good tips/details/info... have any for the ALM Series? (70-496/497/498?)
Thanks either way.
Please help me to get the Study material for 70-410 Exam.
Thanks in advance.
Sometime in January, the material is going to be updated to reflect the Server 2012 R2 release. For now, I would hold off on purchasing anything until the new material is out.
Go for the books, e-book is easily available.Should you need any training, I can help you find a trainer.
