Lectori salutem,

I'm planning on taking the Exam "70-668: PRO: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Administrator" in the near future and was wondering what study material to use. What books do you recommend to study from?

Thank you in advance

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Practising exam papers will not be enough to prepare for 70 - 668 or 667.

You need to do a lot of practice and need real life experience of SharePoint administration.

You can go through this study guide,

SharePoint 2010 70-668 Study Guide

or Microsoft's training course,

Collection 10174B: Configuring and Administering Microsoft® SharePoint® 2010

If you still looking for a book,

Professional SharePoint 2010 Administration

I am a developer and planning for it too, but I am about to buy a good server and then practice on it for months before trying 668.

  • Thanks for your reply Muhammad. Do you know if the book "Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Administration: Real World Skills for MCITP Certification and Beyond" by James Pyles is any good? – TempaC Apr 10 '13 at 8:48

    Nope I didn't read this book yet, but it looks promising for SharePoint administrators who have good experience and would like to extend there knowledge (Its a personal opinion). – Muhammad Raja Apr 10 '13 at 9:21
