Product Description

From Amazon

Windows NT Server 4 for Dummies digs through the jargon and reveals how to plan, set up and run a network of Windows computers.

This book begins with a bit of theory, explaining what network topologies and protocols are and how various options compare. From there, Windows NT Server 4 for Dummies goes through the process of selecting and connecting the hardware (network interface cards, hubs and cabling) you need to run a network. After that, it's all about setting up Windows NT internally--configuring users and groups, setting up trusts and managing backups and other security measures.

Author Ed Tittel, who writes a popular series of books that help people prepare for the NT-centric Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) exams, knows his stuff, as do his assistants. In fact, you could do worse than to use Windows NT Server 4 for Dummies as an MCSE study aid. Though it lacks practice questions and other features characteristic of MCSE books, this text covers many of the subjects you need to understand to pass those exams. --David Wall

First of all, do not buy this book if you are expecting to understand how to be a good NT administrator. This book is only good for passing an exam. Don't get me wrong, if you are only buying a book to prepare for an exam, this is an ok purchase. However, if you are wanting to be a good administrator and an MCSE, then you would assume that you don't need a dummies book anyway. This book has a lot of errors which only get worse when coupled with the extremely flawed "flash cards". My advice is to read braindumps as this is all you are paying for. If the content was deeper and the errors less, this would be a good book. I don't dislike the dummies series of books, but if you take one thing away from my post it should be this, always buy one other book as well - if you're buying the dummies. It will help account for the errors and lack of detail you receive when reading dummies.

I thought this was a very well written book covering Windows NT Server 4. It gives a very good coverage of the four critical areas: networking concepts, installation, administration and troubleshooting. This book has been a huge improvement over Ed Tittel's NT Networking for Dummies; which although I still felt was worth reading, it however gave no instructions on actually doing something with NT. This new book does! This book even covers secrets such as: advice on not to mix Microsoft & Novell's networking components (not to be confused with networking clients), working with FAT volumes, VGA mode boot-up (use of /sos), use of the 3 generic installation disks, creating a generic start-up disk and the use of WINNT, WINNT32 with /o and /ox. Strangely, I could not even find these tips in the book Windows NT Server 4.0 Secrets (800 pages).

Good book and great CD! I feel this book gives the reader a basic outline of Server 4.0. Couple the dummy MCSE series with the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer Core Requirements Training Kit and a few months of solid studying and you'll be an MCSE before you know it. So far I've passed Networking Essentials, Server 4.0 and Workstation 4.0 and I've only used the Dummy and Microsoft books. Plus, the Microsoft books come with 120 day evaluation copies of workstation and server 4.0. You can do all the labs and examples right on your home computer. I honestly believe that this is a surefire approach to passing these tests. Good Luck!

I have taken the NT Server 4.0 exam three times. The first two times that I took this exam with Microsoft Litature I was always one question (700 pts) from passing the exam. After reading this book and using the tips and examples really helped me to get over the hump of passing. I scored a 900 after reading this book. He has really good examples and questions in the book, and if you can consistanly pass the test examples on the CD, and in the book provided you will pass one of Microsofts hardest tests. Not to mention I only studied this book for one week before my exam.
