2nd Edition books RRS feed

  • Question

  • I see the 2nd edition books listed on the Preparation materials pages on the MS site, but they don't appear to be available. I don't want to purchase first editions which presumably are not taking R2 into account, do we have a date that the 2nd editions are going to be released?

  • For 70-640, 642 and 643, I don't see any 2nd edition books on the preparation materials page.

    The first edition of the MS press books for the above exams only cover Windows 2008 technologies, NOT R2

    For 70-647, there might be chance that It will cover R2 stuffs in the 2nd edition book, however there is no ETA and not much information on the MS site. 1st edition still covers NON-R2 Windows 2008 stuffs

  • "soon"

    The last word (which was about a month ago) was that updates the books would be out "within a few months".

  • Wow how silly of me, I'm talking about the books pertaining to Server 2008, specifically the exams for the MCITP Enterprise Administrator set of exams.

    Do these books actually cover off R2 or are they all still Server 2008 only?
