Doesn't Microsoft publish a companion book for their certification?

I don't think the book is out in the market yet. The release date is Apr 2013.
I have the exam scheduled in Mar2013.

Hey Chetan - thanks for sharing this link - it looks like a good certification exam for javascript and html5.

The books is not out there yet - usually (depending on the vendor) prometric or even pearson vue always gives an option to postpone an exam at no cost (should not fall within 24 hours before the exam). So you have that option in case you're not in a rush.

I can postpone but that's something I would want to keep as the last option.
There are lots of books on HTML5/CSS3 but I couldn't find any reliable reviews for any of them.
I have some material(online links) but I am not sure of how much they will help me for the exam.
And I need a hard copy book because I am not a big fan of online studying ( hurts my eyes! )

Thanks!

I have collected all my notes and study materials that I used to pass the Microsoft 70-480 exam into a concise book that will help anyone pass the exam. You can find it on Amazon by searching for the ISBN number: B00CTG7FJM. Or via this link: http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-70-480-Quick-Study-ebook/dp/B00CTG7FJM
