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
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.

This book doesn't even come close to covering the information on the exam. I relied on information from my instructor, class notes and Transcender exams to pass.Published on November 27, 2000 by Carlyle Smith
I'm not under 13, I just wanted a quick way to gripe at you people. First of all, the IIS exam is in no way, shape, or form one of the hardest MCSE exams. Read morePublished on September 1, 2000

You can't get much worst than this. Very brief explainations on how stuff works and what it is. Mentions topics that it takes for granted that you already know about IIS4.0. Read morePublished on September 6, 1999
