This book is a decent introduction to Exchange 2010, but it isn't even close to being sufficient material in preparing for the Exchange certification exams. There might not be a book large enough to fill that role. Microsoft Technet library plus msexchange dot org, together, are a better resource if you are preparing for the exams. The practice test on the disc is ridiculously easy. Don't think that you're ready for the real test even if you ace this practice test.
This book did a much better job of covering the material than the MS press book did. I found the MS book disjointed and less cogent structured. You are better off with this book and keeping the MS book as a reference. If your goal is to get certified get this book first.
The authors did an excellent job in creating a book that serves as both a Exchange Resource I'll keep on my shelf for years to come, and also as a study resource for several exam. The exercises in the book cover lots of applicable real world examples and go into the right amount of detail for an IT Professional.When studying for an exam I have always hated having to copy pages from the end of each chapter to get a full bank of study questions, putting them all on CD made taking practice tests that much easier. I felt like more questions would be useful, but having passed the exam on my first try after using the resources provided I can't complain.The first thing I did when I got this book was to see if it covered several recent issues we've worked though that were not easy to find answers to online. To my delight, they were all well covered in this book.That 5th star is a thank you for including a digital copy with the book.
This is a great book about Exchange 2010 and certification exam. Actually I prefer Sybex books rather than Training Kit. I think reading enjoyable. Some exercices are not complete, missing names of server, but the author published a revision of exercices in his website, I recommend that readers get download of this new exercices.
This book goes in dept into the functionality of Exchange Server 2010. Even without having knowledge this book explains you the basics and how administering is being done with this new version.I can highly recommend this book.Bought it via my kindle and it is very handy to have it digital.
As an administrator with roots in older versions of Exchange, I found this book to be very helpful in navigating the changes in Exchange 2010. I found the installation section of the book to be thorough, especially in regard to the prerequsites and the server roles. The configuration sections are detailed. The AntiSPAM section is detailed and helpful and the backup section is well explained. I found the security and compliance section especially useful. In all, this book whould be useful to anyone looking for study and daily administration reference and I plan to keep in handy on my bookshelf.
This was a great help in learning to setup Exchange 2010 for first couple of times. The pre-reqs were never mentioned when I first attempted to install it so had to go back to the server cds over and over again to make sure i had all the extra roles loaded before exchange could even be installed. Which the book has all that information in it. I've worked with 2003 and 2007 and the changes shown and described in the book have helped make it easier troubleshooting and designing the installs. The exercises are a little dry and simplified but then again it makes sure you get it right.
This book is the worst txt book I have ever purchased.The labs are all jacked up, even after getting a revised, "corrected" labs print out they still are all jacked. If your a student and have no choice but to purchase this book I am sorry for what your going to go through. If your and instructor looking for a txt book for your class , do your students and yourself a favor and don't choose this one.The only good thing about this book was it was available on Kindle so it was cheap.
