The Barnes & Noble Review
Maybe you’ve just decided to pursue MCSE certification. Maybe you’re going for MCSA first, then MCSE. Maybe you need to upgrade your current credentials. Now, direct from Microsoft, this set brings together all the study resources you’ll need.

You get the brand-new Second Edition of all four books: for Exam 70-290 (Managing and Maintaining a Windows Server Environment), 70-291 and 70-293 (Network Infrastructure), and 70-294 (Active Directory). What’s new here? Deeper coverage, more case studies, more troubleshooting, plus significant new coverage: Emergency Management Services, DNS, WSUS, Post-Setup Security Updates, traffic monitoring, Network Access Quarantine Control, and much more.

There are more than 1,200 highly customizable CD-based practice questions. And, for those who don’t have easy acess to Windows Server 2003, there’s a 180-day eval version. This package isn’t cheap, but there’s help there, too: 15% discount coupons good toward all four exams. Bill Camarda, from the August 2006 Read Only
