Yes. Check the SCEA books link . The book has the most 10 horseshoes rating.

One more interesting thing about this book is it was published in year 2000. and after all the newest technologies and trends, no further editions are published. Because this book really covers what is it all about building integrated applications.

We had a copy of this book in our company library before. I had a "really" hard time understanding the concepts. (The last time I tried was a couple of years ago)

I never got past chapter 1, if I recall correctly.

To be honest, I don't really think this is a MUST have book for the exam.
