MCSE Training Kit - Upgrading to Microsoft Windows 2000

This seriously techno book is aimed at experienced Windows NT system administrators who are upgrading a Windows NT 4.0 network to Windows 2000 and/or those wishing to attain Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer status with Windows 2000.

It is not appropriate for those who are installing Windows 2000 for the first time or have little or no experience with Windows NT. Prerequisites for reading the book include experience in administering a Windows NT network, thorough knowledge of TCP/IP and DHCP, and experience managing user accounts in Windows NT.

The book is organised like a text book with chapters split into smaller individual lessons with a review at the end. Objectives are clearly explained at the beginning of each lesson and an approximate learning time is given.

The book provides an outline of the Windows 2000 platform, a complete network installation and upgrade guide, a guide to configuring DNS Services, implementing and administering Active Directory Services (a new Windows 2000 feature), managing desktop environments, managing software, managing file resources, configuring remote access, supporting DHCP and WINS, managing disks, disaster protection and using remote installation services. A CD-ROM containing the entire book and supplementary materials is included. If you have the appropriate skills and are embarking on a Windows 2000 network upgrade, you will find what you need here with a little effort. Perhaps they could have made the book a little more interesting to work with, given the dry subject matter, but then again - how much fun can configuring DHCP be?

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
