A very comprehensive guide to the curriculum for the 70-315 exam. It provides plenty of raw information, worked examples, and hands-on exercises. The material is of a higher quality than most exam preparation books, and the number of typos and outright errors is small. Don’t expect an introduction to ASP.NET, though, or a particularly good way of learning it from scratch. Even though it’s billed as a “training guide,” it asssumes a certain amount of knowledge of the product. It also illustrates some exam points with techniques that no-one in their right mind would use in real life. This is not a guide to ASP.NET “best practice.” It’s designed to get you through the exam, and it does that very well.
