    ISA Server

    Zubair Alexander's book is very competitively priced! It seems to have most of the practical information needed for implementing ISA, it is NOT MCP study material! I have a few criticisms, hence the 3 stars. All the information is there, but it seems to be repeated, which is a little off putting. The content jumps about a bit, rather than a logical flow. The examples of how to do things lack the fine details that are required to confidently configure ISA. It assumes you will install ISA Enterprise Edition, when, I suggest, most people who are reading a book like this will be installing ISA Standard. The two versions MMC views are not identical ¿ this is a pain! I am also surprised that the book didn¿t mention add-on product such as Anti Virus scanners! Moans aside, the book should enable you to get ISA up and running. You would also want a deeper reference book, to gain a reasonable understanding of all the security issues, Spam and Content Filtering etc. Andrew Williams
