    Is it only book available for exam 70-485? This book is focused on Windows 8, but since Decemeber 2013 exam 70-485 is focused on Windows 8.1. So neraly half of the book is useless.

    Yes, this is the only Exam Ref on 70-485 right now. We have a free ebook that is newer – Programming Windows Store Apps with HTML, CSS and JavaScript that might help you. It's from April 2014. You can find it here:
