On the bright side, the book is very well written (American English) and organized with only a hand full of misspelling errors. The text is easy to follow most of the times, is full of real life examples, case studies and questions. The book does much more than just prepare you fully for the exam. It gives useful advice on daily problems. Its preliminary assessment test is a standard procedure for all Sybex books, to guide the reader to the chapters covering the knowledge he is missing.
On the dark side, the schedule development techniques and the performance reporting tools paragraphs are rather complicated and difficult to understand. Moreover, the book is heavily text based with very few diagrams and graphs.
All in all, the book provides you with all you need to pass the exams. In addition, it can be used as a reference resource throughout your professional career.
