  • Sybex has been in the certification business for a while and I've always been pleased with their products. They've always been one of the fastest companies to produce content for an exam and they always gave lots of material for anyone eager to learn. This is why I was so happy to receive the MCITP: Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Administrator Certification box from Sybex.

    I was really curious to see if Sybex would follow through on the quality I got accustomed to. Not only did I find some quality books, but I also found tons of material to prep myself for the exams.

    The kit comes in with five books covering the 5 exams to attain the MCITP title:

    MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Active Directory Configuration Study Guide
    MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure Configuration Study Guide
    MCTS: Windows Server 2008 Application Platform Configuration Study Guide
    MCTS: Microsoft Windows Vista Client Configuration Study Guide
    MCITP: Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Administrator Study Guide

    Now, Sybex has always been generous and they follow through with this edition as each book contains a cd-rom with multiple add-ons and tools:

    - A custom test engine
    - Hundreds of sample questions
    - Electronic flash cards for mobile devices (palm, pocket pc's)
    - A copy of the book in pdf which makes it easier to search

    But the real deal in this set are the books themselves. They contain thorough explanations of the new concepts. I found that the theory is impeccable. Although it's not the only way to work with the volumes, I found that these books did a great job at helping me focus on areas where I lacked skills.

    Also, a lot of editors these days spend considerable time building complicated hands-on exercises. Reading a book that strictly focuses on hands-on can be quite boring for an it professional who gets to play with the products in his every day job. This is why I found this certification kit a great tool with a nice balance between theory, self testing and practice.
