The goal of this book is not to introduce or thoroughly explain the material covered on the 70-417 exam. Rather, the aim of this book is to provide an in-depth review for those already familiar with the material. It reduces the number of surprise questions that often appear on a Microsoft exam -- questions that can make test takers wonder exactly what exam objectives would have led them to study the material in question.
