Title: MCSA/MCSE Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-299): Implementing and Administering Security in a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Network (Pro-Certification)

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Excellent preparation for the 299 exam

This book covers the topics examined by the 70-299 test with enough detail that if you have a moderate amount of experience with Windows Server 2003 you will pass the exam. I would recommend that you use VirtualPC to simulate this stuff in your own lab if it isn't feasible to do so on your production network (setting the company DC to Secure Server Only IPSec can be a bad idea without having workstations properly configured). The practice questions, both in the book and on the accompanying CD-ROM are good preparation. Coming into this exam I already had passed the Windows 2000 version. I recommend that you buy the book and do the exercises. Also, get your core exams out of the way (networking, AD, Server) as you'll need some of this knowledge as well.

CCSP SELF-STUDY: Cisco Secure PIX Firewall Advanced

I grabbed the book as I got in to a project where I needed to configure Failover PIX system. Given no prior experience with PIX, this book was very handy. However, I still had to consult Cisco website for useful and up-to-date information for PPTP, MPPE, etc.

Excellent Resource for Flash Developers!!

Having dabbled with Flash since version 4, it's only of late that I've decided to make a real go of it.
Having not really made a great deal of progress with Actionscripting, I decided this 'From the Source' book might be worth a look.
What a great buy. I've found the examples easy to follow and have started to really get to grips with Actionscript through this book. The way the examples work is that you begin with a Fla that has no coding added, then you go through it adding the code.
This works particularly well, as it saves you time messing around creating graphic symbols/movieclips and lets you get down to some serious coding.
I honestly do rate this book above any other Actionscripting books. I also think it would be a useful read for somebody making the transition from Flash 5 to MX.
Top quality!
