Popularly regarded as the toughest of the MCSE Core Four exams, the Windows NT Server 4 in the Enterprise test (70-68) requires you to integrate knowledge of NT Server with knowledge of NT Workstation, Windows 95, older operating systems, and various back-end transaction software. It's a difficult exam, and this book can help you prepare.
Much of the Enterprise exam focuses on planning and establishing an NT network, and this book follows suit. A third of the material here addresses issues of pre-installation decision making, installation, configuration, and optimization. The protocols--NetBEUI, TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, and AppleTalk--also get lots of attention, and later sections address NT security, RAID, and routing.
Another large portion of this book handles administration. The authors explore rights and policies and then shift to a discussion of increasingly important remote-administration issues. MCSE Training Guide: Windows NT Server 4 Enterprise completely documents Performance Monitor and Network Monitor, which figure prominently on the exam. The book wraps up with troubleshooting on both a macro (how to identify problems) and micro (how to fix specific common Remote Access Server [RAS] problems) level. Each chapter concludes with hands-on exercises and knowledge-testing review questions.
A companion CD-ROM will quiz you on key concepts, keeping score as you go. However, the exam's randomization feature seems weak--it's not unusual to see the same question multiple times in the same exam.
