I have a book which covers most of the course material for the 70-176 exam.  After going through the sections of the exam that are covered by the book  in comparison to those required for the exam, I noticed that there are two components that are not in the book.  The two components are:

Install and configure Microsoft Visual Basic for Desktop Applications (This comes under Establishing the Development Environment)

And

Deploy Application Updates for Desktop Applications (This comes under Maintaining and Supporting an Application)

I cannot find any materials for these two components of the exam.  Can anybody help me out?

Thanks.

I don't remember having any questions related to the installation of VB. Regarding the deployment, questions are mostly arround the Binary compatibility of components.

Would you consider 70-100 to be easier than 176 and 175?  I just came from examcram.com and they rate 70-100 as easier than the other two.  I know it is much longer (3 hours) but that doesn't necessarily mean its harder.

70-100 is a lot different. It is not much difficult but you need to think the Microsoft way. You read case studies for about 20 minutes and then you answer 3 or 4 questions. I didn't like this exam. If you can afford the Transcender test exam for this one, go for it. This is the best preparation you can have.
