I am researching to see what material is available for the
70-300, 305, 306, 310 and 229 exams.

I have read recommendations regarding the Mike G. books,
so they are at the top of the list. I also found this at Amazon:

Reviews are mixed, there are two used/new copies selling
real cheap (which makes me wonder) so I would like to
ask these two ngs for any feedback on this book.

Any recommendations on other books are, of course,
welcomed :-)

Another question that comes up is that I know that MS
Press is selling a bunble of books that cover these exams,
plus those for the C# track. The usual price for the bundle
is around $129. Also, MS Press has specific full volumes
(self paced training kits they call them) for each specific
exam (sold separately). Is there any advantage in purchasing
the bundle of books and also buying the individual volumes?
I would imagine that they might compliment each other, but
I am not certain.

For example:

This is a full volume... for exams 305/315. Notice that going
a little down the page there is a "Better Together" section and
the other product IS the kit bundle that I mentioned earlier.

Thanks all!
