Format: Paperback
Full of errors, dry, and non-informative. Typical MS. Fancy box, good packaging and marketing, but not much on the inside.
The kit contains references to functions on various property sheets(which is basically how IIS is administered) that simply don't exist. Example: on p.114 it states that, "SSL can be set on the SMTP SITE property sheet when configuring SMPT on IIS". This is not included on that property sheet. How can such a basic error be made by the product's own vendor, who expects to test candidates on THEIR knowledge ?
Some of the practices do not work as shown. Example Chapter 14 using Site Server Express,(which is one of the most useful functions in IIS) The practices will not run as shown.
This is my 6th exam in the MCSE series, and hopefully the last time I use MS press for any kind of education within IT. Every kit within the MSCE series contains errors,typos,page duplication, incomplete guidance, and a superficial approach to instruction. Any approaches to MS press regarding this generates a pre-generated or formulated response.
In short: A poor, shoddy product rushed to the market. Like everything else MS

After a friend had studied this book, he advised me not to buy it, and to try some other. As I had purchased the 5 previous MOC books and passed all the exams, I wanted to see for myself how this book compared. Take my advice now and find some other book to study for the exam. This one is a big let down, confusing and a complete waste of time and money, and that's a fact.

I have read a lot of negatives about these materials, but I can't agree with most of what has been said. (I have read the proxy component but not the IIS part.) This training kit is just that - a training kit. It is not a reference book, nor is it a "...for dummies" book either. I used the proxy server book with no practical experience at all and found that all the answers were right there between the pages, passing the exam no problem. (after many sleepless nights of hard study of course) This book will not make you a proxy expert, there are many holes and it is very dry - making reading tough at times. If all you are looking for is a book to pass the exams, this one will do it. All in all, a cheap alternative to instructor lead courses for those seeking MCSE status.

I found this book extremely ineffective as a study tool for this test. I passed the core MCSE exams by primarily studying the Microsoft text, and using the "4 dummies" books to fill in the minor details. However, I worked through this book page by page doing all of the labs, and found I knew little or nothing about administering IIS 4. This book also strays rather far from the material you can expect to see on the exam. I eventually passed strictly by studying the "dummies guide". You are better off passing on the Microsoft text, and if you want/need, you can put the $ you save toward other prep books on this subject.

It's so badly organized it's sometimes painful to read. The book is rampant with non sequiturs, and when it talks high-end technology it ends up as repetitive nonsense.
I can't compare it to other study guides, but I know I'm not going to be able to carry much from this into the exam. I should have listened to the majority of these reviews. Look elsewhere.

Format: Paperback
By far the worst computer book I have ever read. Pompous. A lot of complicated paragraphs to explain very little about IIS. I have already passed MCSE and the IIS exam, and I know this book would have been of zero value. Don't waste your time or money.

This is one of the driest books I have ever read. The covering of IIS subject material is a real roller coaster ride. One chapter will go into fair detail about a particular aspect of IIS while other chapters barely even cover other key areas of IIS. I can't recommend using this kit alone in preparation for the IIS exam. Definitely purchase OTHER recommended books to supplement your reading. The main reasons to purchasing this kit is that you get a 120 day evaluation copy of NT Server 4.0 along with IIS 4.0, and Proxy Server 2.0. Also, this kit covers two tests (IIS and Proxy) instead of just one. The second reason to buy it is to give you that warm fuzzy feeling that you are reading "Official" Microsoft content. You could download IIS and Proxy from Microsoft but having the CD's handy might save you time and frustration. Summary: If you have the extra cash and don't have the needed software then it is definitely worth purchasing this kit.

I bought this because of the negative reviews for almost all IIS 4 MCSE books. I found this kit lacking in detail, inaccurate on some basics, and not very exciting. I reviewed books not targeted for the MCSE exam and bought "Administering IIS 4 by Mitch Tulloch" Mr. Tulloch teaches IIS 4 in a clear manner and covers most of what I found to be on the exam. I also used "SAMS TYS IIS 4 in 14 days". SAMS is multi-authored and ranges from excellent to fair depending on who wrote the chapter. A good complementary book. IIS is very complex, read the on line Docs for indepth information. They are very good but overwhelming and will consume a SIGNIFICANT amount of paper if you try to print out just the basics.
