On to the ranting.
I took the 70-516 exam today and did not pass. I received a 640 and of course needed a 700. I was not a slouch in preparing for this exam. I have four years of programming experience on the job. I read through this study guide, twice. I did the suggested practices and took the practice exams in study mode from the accompanying CD. I read the MSDN articles suggested by the learning plans after taking the practice tests. I even signed up for a month of pluralsight.net and watched every training video they had on the Entity Framework, OData, Linq Quering etc...
When I went in to take the exam I felt confident that I knew the material and would pass with now problems [ I did on my previous two exams 70-513 and 70-516 using the same techniques ]. But while taking the exam I was completely blindsided by many of the questions. In particular what the questions covered and how much detail they went into.
There is no coverage in the book or the practice tests for case studies or testlets. It does not focus on the areas needed to pass the exam and gives only a very basic overview of the topics that could be on the exam.
So in conclusion. Since this book is a training kit for a particular exam I would expect after reading it and utilizing the resources suggested by the book to be able to pass the exam as long as I did my part. I did my part, the book did not. If you buy this book make sure it is not your only resource for studying. Make sure you know each objective completely and thoroughly. A passing knowledge of a subject will not get you through the exam and neither will this book.
I can't go into any great detail due to Microsoft's non-disclosure agreement, but I will say that there are questions on the exam that require intimate knowledge of particular classes that are not referenced at all in this book. As others have noted, topics that are covered are not covered in enough detail, but there are also topics not covered that should be.
In the end, I managed to pass with a score of 94%. This was achieved by purchasing, in addition to this book, Julia Lerman's "Programming Entity Framework" (for the necessary detail on EF) and relying heavily MSDN articles for other topics.
And if you want to get more confortable with LINQ to XML and LINQ in general I would go for
Pro LINQ: Language Integrated Query in C# 2010
Overall, if you are preparing for the exam I would say that this training kit is worth reading and working through and it's definitely superior to the other books in the series on the Web or Windows development exams.
