I teach the MS TCP/IP certification course at an AATP, and we use this text for our course material. Therefore, I've been through it a number of times and know it pretty well. What I will say is that it is pretty good, but not great. I'll agree with most of the posted reviews in that there are definitely some errors (the diagram in Routing that shows dynamically acquired routes is wrong, and the DHCP Relay Agent diagram is also incorrect, for example) and there is material that isn't on the exam. And I also agree that monitoring and optimization is barely covered. However, the book is strong on presenting a solid foundation for someone new to the protocols, which is who I think the intended audience is. I feel that the multimedia presentations, which everyone else seems to trash, do a really good job of graphically showing how the protocols really work. True, chapters one and two aren't covered on the exam, but the material in them is good to know. I think the chapters on addressing, subnetting, and DHCP are standouts. What I'd like to see is a revised edition that makes the book more geared toward an Internet/intranet perspective. Seems like most of the questions in my classes are coming from that point of view. What I'm really not sure of, however, is how good the book really is without the help of an instructor or someone that knows this stuff. Maybe I'll just have to write my own text. :-) A final thought is that I rate it below MS's NT Server self-study guides, and far above the IIS material (even the latest 4.0 book isn't very good).

As an instructor and self-study enthusiast, I must congratulate the authors and editors on this fine piece of work. The accompanying two CDs are valuable additions to the book, being a 120-day evaluation version of NT 4.0 Server, and several first class multimedia presentations. The wealth of exercises and questions populating the book ensure in-depth review and understanding of the topics covered. I would like to add a few comments about accuracy. On page 65, the network numbers are incorrect and should read "Networks 1 and 3 represent two routed networks; Network 2 represents the WAN connection between two routers". On page 78, the IP address of computer "E" is incorrect. It should be 109.128.11.11 and as it stands, will not be able to communicate on the LAN. If the authors are interested, I could contact them directly with the rest of the typographical errors I have found in this otherwise highly recommendable work.

Many technical and editorial errors make this a confusing text. Microsoft only acknowledges one correction in their online updates at their corporate web site. Unless you are already familiar with TCP/IP, you will be confused by the inaccuracies in this book. The answers to the review questions throughout the book are not explained, often leaving you wondering why you get a different answer from the one listed. Sections on DNS are incomplete and do not cover all topics that were on my MCSE exam. If you use this book, you will need additional material to understand subnetting clearly. Subnetting is covered by 20% of the questions on the exam so you can't rely on this book to give you what you need to pass the exam. The strengths of this book include a thorough explanation of WINS and using TCP/IP printing functions with NT server. Other than that, this book is overpriced as official study material to pass an exam.

I'm using this book now to study for my fourth MCSE exam, and find it very poor compared with other books. Here's why. 1. Many editorial mistakes make it hard to rely on. 2. The CD-ROM Multimedia materials do not illustrate the most important concepts, such as subnet masks. Instead, they illustrate fairl;y clear ideas. 3. The descriptions of subnet masks and addressing are far less clear than in other books. Examples are abitrary and not explained. The practices do not focus clearly on the themes of the chapter (try comparing the actual summaries with the actual exercises and you will see what I mean). 4. Answers to exercises are not explained in any detail. For this reason, I found the Microsoft Press material far less useful that materials such as Exam/Cram, on-line articles, and the comments of netizens. I cannot recommend this for anyone serious about self-study.

While any manual, or instruction on a protocol can't begin to compare to Space Mountain, this book does compare with Sominex. I attempted to study from this tome, and never was able to sit and read an entire chapter without dozing off.
I found it to be incomplete, inaccurate, complex, and completely useless. The "Microsoft" solution is to memorize a bunch of graphs and tables, not to actually LEARN what is going on behind the scenes. For example, it is very easy to calculate a custom subnet mask, this ignores the process and tells you to memorize a chart. When you test, you can't use a crib-note. If you forget the numbers, you are lost.
You might pass the test with this book, but you certainly won't know what to do in the real world.
Save your money...look for a different title.
