Hi THERE,

I would like to study for this exam and I was wondering which book to read and study from. Is there any Sybex or microsoft book I can get to buy.

I want to become a virtualization expert in Microsoft only. I am not looking at any other technology right now.

Many thanks,

Neither Sybex nor Microsoft press have a study guide for this exam.  There is classroom training, and the book apparently used either for that training or as a companion for that training is "Understanding Microsoft Virtualization Solutions", which is available as a free ebook from microsoft here:

There are no books published for this exam at this time, you would have to go thriugh the "Skills Tested" section for the exam on the MS learning site to see what you would need to study.

I would not do this exam I anyway, if I were you I would look at doing the MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7 track which is 2 exams.

Exam 70-680 & Exam 70-685

There is no specific desktop virtualisation cert from microsof afaikt, only MCTS exams on Hyper-V but even that is geared toward server virtualisation not desktop.

Why do you want to go that route? it is not very sought after by employers at the moment either.
