    Best Book for a Network Admin Hands Down

    There are a lot of IT guides out there but this is the one I can't do without. Superbly written, thorough and easy to follow. The labs are also invaluable and turn the words into real knowledge. I highly recommend this book for any IT professional's collection.

    Just what I needed

    Not only is this book dead on to pass the exam 'the prep exam on the CD was perfect'. But also, the book is designed to be used as a reference manual when you're on the job and can't remember how to accomplish something. It provides step-by-step instructions on how to configure Active Directory. A great resource to have on hand when you don't feel like hunting around Google for your answers. You can't go wrong when studying from a Sybex prep book and William Panek is to Microsoft what Todd Lammle is to Cisco. Buy this book!
