MOS Master Certification - ETA of Microsoft press books RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    I have searched but not find Microsoft press books for exams:

    • MOS: Microsoft Office Word 2010 Expert

    • MOS: Microsoft Office Excel 2010 Expert

    • MOS: Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2010

    • MOS: Microsoft Office Outlook 2010 or MOS Microsoft Office Access 2010

    I've found other forums where there are some books, but it seems not helpful.

    As exams are available since more than 1 months, doesn anyone knows how long does it takes usually to have Microsoft press books available?

    Many thanks for your support.

    Regards

  • Hi,

    There is the MOS 2010 Study Guide

    http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780735648753/

    This would cover Outlook and Powerpoint.

    Exam 77-883: Microsoft PowerPoint 2010

    Exam 77-884: Microsoft Outlook 2010

    Expected in August for Expert Exams and Access 2010

    Hope this helps.

  • Thank you Ozzy.

    I had already found those books.

    For the first one, I have read that it seems not strictly related to exam's topic.

    BTW this seems the most accurate guide available at the moment and focused on the exam's topics.

    I'll wait also the microsoft presso books.

    Thanks again

  • Hi,

    No problem, you mention you will wait for the Microsoft Press books.

    I might have misunderstood, but these are the official Microsoft Press Books ,they are now distributed/published by O'Reilly, but still under the Microsoft Press brand.

    Kind Regards,

  • Hi frankyit, I understand your frustration! For the Expert exams, the study guide will not be available until August 2011 (I know!!). Here is what I found for you (not good news, though)..

    Product Details:
    Title: MOS 2010 Study Guide for Microsoft® Word Expert, Excel® Expert, Access®, and SharePoint®</cite> details here
    By: John Pierce, Geoff Evelyn
    Publisher: Microsoft Press
     Formats: Print
    Print:  August 2011 (est.)
    Pages: 550 (est.)
    Print ISBN: 978-0-7356-5788-5
    | ISBN 10: 0-7356-5788-2
    By the way, if you are trying to locate the practice files for the regular MOS Study Guide, which arrived today, the link doesn't work yet. I called oreilly.com and they said maybe tomorrow, which is the retail date (huh?)
