PREFACE:

Preface

This book is designed primarily to support computing professionals preparing for the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and/or MCSE plus Internet core exams. This book prepares a candidate for Exam 70-098, Implementing and Supporting Microsoft Windows 98.

This book will also benefit any computing professional who manages Windows-based computing environments, particularly in the enterprise. It is designed to be both a training guide and reference resource.

Who This Book Is For

This book is designed to provide concise and comprehensive information for computer professionals who manage computers running under the Microsoft Windows 98 operating system. Readers of this book should have a working knowledge of a Microsoft Windows operating system, such as Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT 4.0. This book will give the reader the knowledge needed to pass the Windows 98 exam requirements of the MCSE program.

What You'll Need

Through the use of numerous illustrations and an interactive CD-ROM-based training supplement, we have endeavored to make this book as self-contained as possible. Nevertheless, we acknowledge that there is no substitute for hands-on experience. To practice the concepts explained in this book, you will need at least an Intel 486/33 computer with 16 Mbytes of RAM (32 Mbytes recommended), 450 Mbytes of free hard disk space, a network adapter card, a mouse (or other pointing device), a VGA monitor, a CD-ROM drive, and a printer. Optional equipment includes a modem or ISDN adapter, a 1.44 Mbyte 3.5-inch floppy diskette drive, and a tape drive. Software requirements include Microsoft Windows98.

How this Book Is Organized

This book is divided into multiple chapters, each corresponding to a basic exam objective. These include such issues as planning, installation and configuration, resource management, monitoring and optimization, and troubleshooting. Each chapter is further divided into subsections that correspond to specific MCSE exam contents, and is concluded with a list of related study questions. Some additional non-MCSE specific material is also provided to enhance readers' knowledge in certain areas.

Conventions Used in this Book

This book uses different features to help highlight key information.

Chapter Syllabus

The primary focus of this series is to address those topics that are to be tested in each exam. Therefore, each chapter opens with a syllabus that lists the topics to be covered. Each topic directly corresponds to the Level 1 headings in the chapter. So if there are six Level 1 headings in a chapter, there will be six topics listed under the Chapter Syllabus. If a syllabus topic and Level 1 heading are MCSE-specific, they will be accompanied by an MCSE icon. However, there may be instances when the topics are not exam-specific. In these cases, the chapter syllabus highlights and corresponding Level 1 headings appear without the MCSE icon.

Icons

Icons represent called-out material that is of significance and that you should be alerted to.

Chapter Review Questions

Each chapter ends with a series of review questions. These questions are a combination of multiple choice and true/false, designed to simulate a part of an actual exam and to reinforce what you have just learned. The amount of questions will vary depending on the length subject matter of the individual chapter

All of these questions are taken directly from the material covered in the chapter, and the author's answers can be found in the Appendix.

Although this book covers all of the material required by the MCSE exam, the author has reordered some material in order to make it as clear and concise as possible. While it is impossible to avoid some repetition in topics, the author has done his best to present previously described topics in new ways. While this repetition might elicit of feeling of deja vu at times, it is useful in ensuring that important concepts will be remembered.

About the CD-ROM/Web Site

This book is accompanied by a CD-ROM that contains valuable self-paced training material, courtesy of SmartForce. Please follow the installation instructions on the CD-ROM. This book is also accompanied by a Companion Web site on which readers can find additional exam preparation aids and updates to the enclosed material. It is located at ....
