My only complaint is the lack of pictures. While it kept the cost of production down, it does seem to be a feature you would want to have.

I agree with other reviewers that several chapters were not up to the standards of the rest of the book. The material is covered but not quite as good as most of the book - obviously done by different authors that the editor failed to make consistent. Also the test questions on the CD were not as tough as what I found on the actual test. Luckily, after conquering this book I signed up for the MeasureUp web site pretest questions. The combination worked very well for me; proof being I passed.
Despite these criticisms I highly recommend this book to get the bulk of knowledge you need. Once you've conquered its material then use something like MeasureUp to fine-tune what you need to know. Overall, I was very pleased. As a point of reference, I'm a moderately experienced programmer, having worked with a number of languages over the years but am not strong on VB.
A couple chapters seem to be clunky and thrown together. These chapters point to the accompanying CD for source code examples instead of listing them in the book like all other chapters. These same chapters seem not to offer much in the way of hands on exercises. Unfortunately these seem to be the more difficult topics. Fortunately these are only a couple out of over 20 chapters.
If you work with VB.NET, then this book might be all you need to pass the 70-306.
If you do not have much hand on experience with VB.NET you will find that you need to supplement your studying.
If you just want to learn VB.NET then this is not the book for you.

For baseball fans, especially Yankee fans which I am not, this is a must-read. Rarely do I laugh out loud when I'm reading, but Sparky made me chuckle throughout the entire read.
I'm waiting for Sparky's second fiction to come out.
