The authors of this book have obviously spent a great deal of time with the product, and they pass the information on to you. Extras throughout the pages alert you to undocumented features and issues, security repercussions, and situation workarounds that would be very time consuming to have discovered on your own. The book is presented in such a way that it is useful no matter what stage you are in, initial installation, configuration or support. Thus far, every support and configuration question that I have had regarding ISA has been answered clearly and efficiently by this title.
The book also comes with a CD-ROM which has the book in electronic form, which is great for quick reference, but has a horrible search feature. Other than that, I really wish that I had picked this title up at the start of my ISA project - it would have saved countless hours of work and frustration.
If you're trying to decide which one to buy, GET THIS ONE !
Just about everything is covered, and what's really neat is that things are explained so a beginner can understand, but you've also got all these advanced configuration tips and tons of stuff that you definitely won't find in the Help files. You can tell these guys are writing from hands on experience and it shows!
I know it's not meant to be a study guide, but I found a lot of answers to my questions here while I was studying for the ISA test. The only complaint I've got was the long waiting period for the book to be published. I wish they wouldn't put a date it's supposed to be available and then not ever update that.
I also found out about isaserver.org from the book where Tom Shinder gives all sorts of support for ISA questions and that's a great resource.
The book is printed on better than average paper, and 909 pages result in a volume that is thinner than the 655 pages in the Simmons MCSE book. The installable CD has the full text in several different formats including a fully searchable HTML format. The CD also includes a nice set of audio tutorials and access to a web site for further assistance.
I was forced to fall back on my Microsoft IP networking library to review of some basic IP networking concepts. One certainly wants to frequently use the [router print] command from the command prompt to check routing tables on any host or serer when trouble shooting the installation, and neither the Simmons of Shinder books covered basic IP routing in any detail. The Shinder book said right out that a companion IP networking book would be useful
A big hint. After you install ISA perfectly including the trivial setup of clients as SecureNAT clients (more complex client types readily available), you can't initially get anything through ISA, not even a simple web browser request to the Internet. Go to Chapter 8 and set up rules to allow Internet access. (Simmons covers this more concisely and perhaps better on page 127.)
This book is actually by two Shinders, Dr. Thomas Shinder and Debra Littlejohn Shinder, Toms' wife. When a real MD turns to software consulting as his full-time career you can be sure he really loves the stuff. The style of the book shows this. It is nicely written. The Shinders are authors of several other Windows 2000 books.
Another thing quite helpful in the book was the coverage of server publishing, especially FTP server publishing. I had no idea how tricky that could be!
If you are fighting with ISA Server like I have been, then you will like this book a lot. Its saved me a lot of hours of frustration.
