I borrowed this book from another MCSD that had already passed the this exam. I passed the book on to another person who passed the exam and is now an MCSD. I am basically saying that if you are serious about the exam, you will need to use this book, even if you use the Transender cds. "Its like that, and thats the way it is" -Run DMC.

I actually wanted to rate this a 4.5/5 stars, but a 4 seems too low.
I took the desktop exam (70-176) a few weeks before this and then for this exam I studied with only this and the transcenders. It doesn't mention a couple of areas specifically mentioned on the Microsoft site that you'll need (such as listview/treeview), so you may want to look elsewhere for those. Also my exam had a couple of questions on RDO that this book didn't cover (I guessed them right I think!).
Overall though this is an effective way to pass the exam in a fairly short amount of study time. Ideally a person would use the transcender practice questions to supplement this book.
Taken together with the examcram desktop this and that make for a close to perfect fit for the MS VB exams; ie, if you study for both at the same time and take them both within the same couple of days since each book complements the other on certain areas that are on the other one's exam you'll do great.
The quiz at the end of the book is worth the cost of the book itself - about 8-10 questions on my exam were a close (if not exact) match to the ones on the book's exam. The chapters are well laid out and each one has review questions to reinforce the material. Keep in mind, however, that this book is not for beginners - you should either have some experience and/or it should should be used as a supplement to other study material. I supplemented with the Transcender exam, and it also provided about 8-10 questions which nearly matched those on my exam. Study hard - it isn't an easy exam, but this book will be a big help!
I wasn't as impressed with this book as the 70-176 Exam Cram, but it still helped. It covered every catagory and laid out the foundation of study very well for the exam. The book's questions and sample exam weren't as tough and devious as the 70-176 Exam Cram's were, but the actual MS Exam was actually much easier with hardly any tricky questions. I scored a 914 on the 70-175 exam and an 814 with the 70-176 exam.
Overall the book was very good, not excellent. The book is a must have if you are taking the exam, but you also need other materials. I suggest at least Trancender exams.
I recently passed the 70-176 exam partly due to this book. I worked through the book and tested myself with every question, then worked on weak areas using other resources. It definitely helped but another resource is a good idea. I used MSDN and Hawhee's 70-175/170-176 book also.
Most reviewers agree that Thomas and Fox have produced a terrific book for this exam. It covers the daunting breadth of the exam material in a manner that is perfectly suited for review and pre-exam cramming.
Alone, this book will get you through the exam IF you are an experienced VB 6 developer AND you have worked a fair amount in distributed applications. If you are primarily a desktop developer, are experienced only in VB 5, or are newly attempting to master distributed applications development for this exam, you will likely need additional resources. It is true that if you memorize this book, you will probably pass the exam, but that expectation is unrealistic if much of the material is new to you.
My suggestion for exam candidates who are not already immersed in VB distributed development is that you first read one of the "big" exam books, to gain more comfort and understanding of the unfamiliar technologies, then use this Exam Cram to solidify the concepts and fill in the gaps. You may need to focus on component technology, COM and DCOM, in greater depth than is provided in this or most other exam study books. For that, both "Programming Components with Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0", by Eddon & Eddon (Microsoft Press), and "VB COM", by Lewis (Wrox), are ideal and very readable.
Since nearly every paragraph of this highly condensed book could be material for an exam question, it is unlikely that you will see more than a fraction of it on the exam. But "the exam" implies that there is a single exam, which is not the case. You will sit down to a randomly selected version of the exam, with its own selection of covered material. If you stumble into an adaptive version of the test, then its initial questions may determine your fate.
WEAKNESSES: A small number of technical errors or ambiguities may require you to find clarification elsewhere. They are usually easy to spot. In general, this book has relatively few errors for the genre. The chapter on application design could use more depth. Treatment of MTS will probably get you through related exam questions, but is inadequate for useful MTS development. ADO coverage is adequate for the exam only if you are already familiar with the technology. Each chapter could use a few more sample questions, though the few that are provided accurately reflect the nature of questions on the real exam.
STRENGTHS: For a book of this size, this is a nearly perfect review summary. Its tear-out "Cram Sheet" is well focused and a useful review in the hour prior to taking the exam. Chapter questions employ a simple layout technique that dramatically enhances the effectiveness of the questions. By framing each question within a thin box, the reader is able to easily cover the answer before reading the question. This sounds silly, but without the frame, your eye will see the answer while attempting to locate the end of the question. (Bravo to Coriolis for this! In books with the answers at the back of the book, the correct answers are usually boldfaced, so you see the answers for the next question while reading the explanation of the prior question.)
CONCLUSION: An excellent choice for a "small" book. Consider reading a "big" book first, and possibly following up with in-depth material on DCOM.
