Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
For many thousands of Microsoft network professionals, MCSA Exam #70-218 is pivotal. Passing it earns you core credit towards Microsoft’s MCSA certification for Windows 2000, and elective credit towards your MCSE at the same time.

It’s important -- but so is conserving your precious time. That’s why you should check out MCSA Exam #70-218 In Depth. Long-time systems analyst and Microsoft networking trainer Conan Kezema has captured what you need to know in less than 400 highly readable pages.

Kezema starts with a high-level review of both key goals of network administration: ensuring availability of network resources, such as files, folders, email, and printers; and securing the network so those resources are only available to those with appropriate permissions. He then outlines the tasks Microsoft says you’ll need to perform in order to accomplish that -- creating accounts, managing servers and resources, troubleshooting, and working with Active Directory.

Next, you’ll drill down into each of these areas. Kezema walks you through planning your Windows 2000 installation and assessing your hardware and software requirements upfront; installing and configuring hardware; and managing Windows 2000 patches and security updates. He reviews each fundamental task associated with administering Active Directory objects, group types, permissions, and replication.

Using handy charts and tables, Kezema shows how to manage Group Policies, thereby controlling everything from user desktop settings to software deployments. Then, it’s on to delivering “traditional” network file services -- with a focus on properly combining NTFS and shared file permissions, so you don’t drive yourself nuts, or drive your users to physical violence.

There’s a full chapter on IIS 5.0: installing it, configuring it, securing it, and using it to provide Web and FTP services. Kezema then moves on to your network infrastructure, from TCP/IP basics through troubleshooting Windows 2000 name resolution problems. Don’t remember what superscopes are, or how to create them? Not sure how to configure Dynamic DNS updates? You’ll find the answers here.

Speaking of troubleshooting, Kezema covers a wide range of Windows 2000 Server health and performance issues, as well as Windows 2000 startup options, the Recovery Console, and backup/restore. The book wraps up with concise discussions of remote access, VPNs, NAT, Internet Connection Sharing, and Terminal Services.

The accompanying CD-ROM contains MeasureUp software with 150 super-realistic sample questions. MeasureUp is a Microsoft Certified Practice Test Provider, so they have unique insight into the Microsoft certification exam. In fact, they’re one of only two exam simulation providers recommended on Microsoft’s own MCSA Exam 70-218 Web page.

MeasureUp’s software lets you practice in “Study Mode” (work at your own pace, see the right answers immediately) or Certification Mode (in which you take a timed test that’s hard to tell from the real thing, drawing on all the exam question formats you’re likely to encounter on the real exam). There’s even a Custom Mode, which lets you test yourself on the topics you’re most worried about. Bill Camarda
