You should be sufficiently prepared if you work (rather than
just read) through the (BLUE training; NOT the RED exam
cram) Kalani guides and are able to answer the review
questions at the end of each chapter (without peeking).

Some things may look simple on paper but are actually not
that straight forward when you are actually trying to get
them to work. And you always learn better by "doing".

If the review questions are giving you trouble use some of
the reference links at the end of the chapter to do some
more research (many of the links go to the MSDN). Some of
the links may no longer work due to the dynamic nature of
the web - simply use the site's search engine to find the
content by title - or use (Google caches some
page content even if the page no longer exists).

If you have time also do the paper exam at the end. You
shouldn't need to use (and waste you time with) any test

You can find the errata to Kalani's books here:
