Are you Kidding Me? 29 mars 2014
Par Howard P. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
First of all, don't buy this book...It's a joke-although I'm not laughing.

How this got to print is inexcusable -- I'm only on page 26 and have ZERO confidence in this book.

Look at the "unconfirmed" errata found at this link (from page xvi in the book) http://aka.ms/ER70-487/errata

I've been programming many years with a few Microsoft's certs under my belt so I know the drill:

- read Study Guides, Exam Crams, Google...
- use Practice Test
- code examples, i.e, Lab Work etc...

Right out of the gate, on page 6 & 7 are two pages of code comprising unit test for "which is better" DataReader" or "DataAdapter"?

No problem, let me just download the code for this book and run the examples...But alas, there aint no stink'n code.

The author goes on to point out, on page 8, that the data reader takes 2 ms to run vs 3 ms for the data adapter...

Well, I tell ya, I'm shocked....DUDE, WHO CARES? What about Developing Azure and Web Services?

Then there is an important paragraph, with a highlighted gray background..."IMPORTANT...MAKE SURE YOU CLOSE EVERY CONNECTION YOU OPEN"....DUDE, this is programming 101...and what does this have to do with Objective 1.1 Choose Data Access Technologies?

BTW, where's the database for this example?

On page 14, were given detailed instructions on building an EF Model using the Entity Data Wizard...I'm mean complete with screen shots and step-by-step instructions...i.e, First right-click on YOUR Project in Solution Explorer....

BTW, where's the database for this example? What version of Visual Studio do we need?

Finally on page 18, is the completed Entity Model as well as MORE code and the author writes: "Quickly test this to investigate everything you created...Are you kidding me...Test this? The author is sure to point out "it now takes 4ms to run this code."

WOW...I guess I finally hit the wall on page 26 where there is another one of those "highlighted gray boxes"...where the author provides insights into "chatty" vs "chunky"...

"Assume it takes 100 ms per MB of data. In just transfer times alone, that puts you at 2.5 seconds vs 1 second transferring data...."

What? Where is this coming from? Was this "insight" pulled from another book and slapped onto page 26?

On page 27 the author talks about the ObjectContext option "UseConsistentNullReferenceBehavior" and again there more code and the author states: "...take a look at a test to see what happens."

yea, but where's the database, where's the download code, what testing framework are you using, what development environment, how will this help me with the exam....

I guess you get the picture.

Shame on Microsoft and O'Reilly Media for publishing this book and shame on me for buying it after reading the reviews.

Speaking of reviews, one 5 star reviewer wrote: " I have not taken the exam yet but fee confident that I can pass using this book."

C'mon man...is the author a friend of yours or do you work for MS or O'Reilly?

Missing and/or wrong answers to the questions and poorly edited prose 28 mars 2014
Par Osu buckeye 31 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Like one of the other reviewers here I was extremely unimpressed with this book. I passed the 70-480 & 70-486 on the first try using the same official MS exam ref books. The other two books were extremely well written, this one... not so much. I actually stopped using the practice questions because I found so many where the answer was just plain wrong or was missing entirely from the answer section. There are multiple misspellings and punctuation issues but I haven't even gotten to the worse part. This book is at least 150 pages too long! The author put so much "extra" garbage filler in between the few good tidbits that it made reading it frustrating. The other two books had none of these issues and I highly recommend them for preparing for their respective exams. Pass on this book, you'll thank me later.

Wait for an Update 28 mars 2014
Par Developer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
As mentioned by another user, "Glaring omissions from the start". I am only on page 31 and have found several instances of mistakes, poorly written prose, or just flat-out confusing tangents (e.g. referring to a topic from an earlier paragraph with the word "this". This what?).

At this point I will trudge through it as I have already highlighted some topics and can't return it. But as of page 31, terrible...

Plus, where is the TestDB spoken about on page 14? The book says "... build a simple model against the TestDB created in the beginning of Chapter 1...". Has anyone found the reference to this? I can't find any mention of a schema or url to download the TestDB.

FAIL 27 juin 2014
Par Simon Le Serve - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book was published without any revision or proof-reading.
Sentence structure throughout is terrible, and the book reads like a series of random, fragmented, statements.

The book is riddled with:
- mistakes
- extremely verbose nonsense unrelated to the material
- first person pronoun usage (from the perspective of any one of the three separate authors)
- grammatically flawed language
- a constant stream of indeterminate prepositions and indexicals
- more text about the author's feelings and emotions than the target material
- ill-formatted code samples
- and plain bad advice

The fact that this book was published at all, is criminal.

If you expect this book to help you pass certification ... then god help you, because you will need ten times more effort than ought to be required.

The following image is a page with some revision markings: axiommanifold.com/media/images/487-Amazon-Review/bad-487-eg-1.jpg
To point out one thing: the LINQ-to-XML sections opens with three paragraphs repeating the same point over and over. Note the first (two) sentence/s of the second paragraph:

"There's one point that can't be emphasized enough. The more you know about the technology, the more likely you are to be able to rule out incorrect answers."

It is this kind of language treatment that renders this book a complete scandal. Look at some of the other self-explanatory revision markings.

Another example: axiommanifold.com/media/images/487-Amazon-Review/bad-487-eg-2.jpg
Note the ill-formatted XML verging on the illegible! Poor formatting like this is rife throughout the book.

The authors may have strived to convey valuable information, so the book was potentially a valuable contribution. But the author's laziness or the publisher's stupidity has resulted in complete failure.

Microsoft should have been bigger than this, to allow something potentially worthy, to pass into existence without revision and allow this rubbish to reach the market.
Microsoft's failure to remove this book from availability is also criminal.

... I don't like this book

Could be much better 11 février 2014
Par L. KENG - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
First of all, I am only a bit more than half way through the book. There are quite a few mistakes in this book. Some answers are clearly incorrect or missing. For example, p. 248 and 282 (Objective 3.6), there are three questions but only two answers are given. I want to give it more stars but this kind of errors are found through out. The book feels like it was re-arrange last minute and did not get reviewed properly.

While some of the authors' thoughts are good, I find most of them to be too general and does not help in the exam or in practice. In addition, many important topics are simply skimmed over, such as in the WCF chapter. Many of the bindings options were not clearly explained.

While I am learning something from this book, and I understand compiling a book for exam 70-487 is a difficult task, it simply falls short of my expectation. I have seen better exam prep from Microsoft (I have read a dozen of them). If the second half of the book somehow changes my mind, I will update this review.

[Updated on 3/27/2014]

I took my exam and passed it. It wasn't easy but I made it, so I want to give this book some credits and update my review, now that I have read it cover to cover twice. I am bumping it up from 2 to 3 stars, and here is why.

First of all, I am quite familiar with MS data access technologies and WCF from using them at work for years. Exam (70-487) truly covers an insane range of topics that can only be sufficiently covered by a book of at least 900-1100 pages. While this book has only some 420 pages and is not expensive (I paid $26 for it), I would rather pay more for a more well-written book. I am sure the authors are restricted by page numbers but many paragraphs could have been more succinct. There are many wasted space and general comments that don't aid in the exam, although I find the 2 or 3 review questions at the end of each objective very helpful.

I read this book cover to cover twice, viewed online videos (Microsoft virtual academy), read some web references, and watched a few PluralSight training videos. I also had a lot of hands-on practice on my PC (coding in VS2013 express) and playing around in Azure. While this is the only 70-487 book, one has to be extremely proficient with the topics in order to pass it by reading this book alone. To make matter worse, Azure is ever evolving, so much that this book, Microsoft web site, or the exam itself can't even keep up. We are already on VS2013 and Entity Framework is on version 6.1 today... An exam question was still using ObjectContext as opposed to the new DbContext.

Overall, I would give the book a 3.5-3.6, knowing how difficult it is to cover exam 70-487. I like the Web API and deployment coverage. Admittedly, WCF deserve its own book (I have other WCF books). I have passed two MCSD certifications in the last 15 years (each requiring 4 exams) but I have to say 70-487 is one of the toughest ones (right up there with the old Windows Architecture I & II many years ago, but with even more evolving topics to cover).
