    Long but efective.

    Like always Microsoft Press' books are long, that's nothing new. They do cover a lot of material that is not the test, and they do forget some points. Anyway, the book was not bad, it got me to pass the test. You do need the evaluation copy of the Windows 2000 server in order to follow up with the exercises, but you can do what I did. I went with my book to one of the local Microsoft offices and explained my case, and they kindly gave me an evaluation copy. I do recommend PRACTICE, you do need the experience to pass the test. There is no way that you can do it exclusively by studying one book. Microsoft has made the tests really hard, so you do have to study and practice in order to pass. GOOD LUCK!!!

    Excellent for test prep and real world.

    If you are well-experienced with personal computers and have at least a reasonable networking experience, you can probably handle the material presented here. This book is aimed at the person who is working on Microsoft certification. As such it does the best job of any tools currently available in preparing you for the 70-215 (Server) test. To take full advantage of the material and exercises, you will need two computers capable of running Win2k advanced server. They will need to be connected by hub or switch. Don't be fooled by the title. Even if you are not interested in certification, this is still a good book of the network administrator. Topics that I felt were well covered are user profiles, unatteded installations, and group policies. Topics that could have used more treatment included shared/NTFS permissions and remote administration. Perhaps these topics are covered more in other books in the series. As do other books in the series, this one has an outline of the tested material and pointers to where the material can be found. These books are much like the Microsoft Official Curriculum with the addition of an index. This index was a little lean, I felt. The book in general was quite clean and almost error-free; including the hands-on exercises which were very helpful. This alone would make the book outstanding in view of the bulk of the books in this genre being full of errors.
