Even if you've gained a good deal of hands-on experience, you should still study if you expect to pass the Windows NT Server in the Enterprise exam (70-068). You may want a review guide like Exam Cram: NT Server 4 in the Enterprise
to back up and solidify the knowledge. This book, like its popular series mates, provides an efficient way to review the facts and concepts you'll need to understand to pass this exam.
The authors begin their review with some fundamental concepts such as domains and the relationships among them, trusts, users, groups, and permissions. They then proceed to cover redundant array of independent disks (RAID) fault tolerance and directory replication.
Naturally, networking gets most of the review time. Exam Cram: NT Server 4 in the Enterprise pays attention to standard Windows NT local area network (LAN) protocols, plus dialup networking and the behavior of Windows NT on a heterogeneous network. Practice quizzes (with answers and explanations) conclude each chapter, and two practice tests (also with keys) appear at the back of the book.
There's no substantial difference in the content of the Adaptive Testing Edition of this guide and the contents of the older, nonadaptive edition. The adaptive test has fewer, more carefully targeted questions and different rules regarding time and the review of questions, but its technical content is the same as that of the standard test. --David Wall
