The book is labelled as a study guide for the 70-640 exam and as such you do learn things. Is it enough to pass the exam, this book is labelled to prepare you for? The short answer is no. I read the book five times and studied all the excersices four times through, achieving 92% on both their "final" exams. The pass mark for the Microsoft exam is about 70%. I did not pass, and to add injury to insult, there were terms and concepts, which were directly related to Active Directory, on the exam that the book had not even touched on.
If you are looking for a guide to help you USE Active Directory in the workplace and have no intention of aiming for the exam, then it may just do. Either way I recommend that you buy the official Microsoft Press book on Active Directory exam 70-640.
Good luck with your studies in general.
