Good Exchange 2013 books

Hi folks,

Looks like it took ages for good Exchange 2013 books to be published after release of this product. There are still no good books for 70-341 and 70-342 exams.

However, in October 2013 MS press has published 2 books in Exchange 2013 Inside Out series. One is written by Tony Redmond and another one by Paul Robichaux.

I have finished first book and highly recommend it, though it misses a subject of DAG autoreseeding feature which can be read in Technet. However, Tony quite clearly explains all the nuts and bolts of a new Mailbox server role with some good practical examples and PowerShell scripts.

Currently I'm in the 2nd chapter of Paul's book that covers new CAS role along with transport and UM. It is also quite a good reading, though I miss Tony's style and tons of script examples there. But it's still a good reading.

These are Amazon links where you can order these books (it's not advertisement, just a friendly advise)
