Depending on your current knowledge and experience, you may need resources beyond this book for your MCSE studies. The one resource all MCSE candidates should be aware of is Microsoft’s Training and Certification web page:
We recommend that you refer to this page regularly during your certification progress, because changes may be announced that will affect your exam choices.
A wide variety of MCSE study guides are available from other vendors, chief among them the MOC (Microsoft Official Curriculum) study guides. If you need a book for further study, choose the one that best fits your needs.
Other useful resources, although not specifically for the MCSE curriculum, include the various Resource Kits published by Microsoft. These are available for Windows 2000 Professional and Windows 2000 Server and go into great detail about each product. Each kit includes a CD-ROM with useful utilities, some of which are described in this book.
A number of practice MCSE test programs are available. See Microsoft’s web page, listed earlier, for information about one such program. See this book’s web site (listed in the next section) for links to several third-party test software providers.
