This book’s primary goal is to help you prepare to take and pass Microsoft’s exam number
70-290, Managing and Maintaining a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Environment. Our secondary
purpose in writing this book is to provide exam candidates with knowledge and
skills that go beyond the minimum requirements for passing the exam, and help to prepare
them to work in the real world of Microsoft computer networking.
What is Exam 70-290?
Exam 70-290 is one of the two core requirements for the Microsoft Certified Systems
Administrator (MCSA) and one of the four core requirements for the Microsoft Certified
Systems Engineer (MCSE) certifications. Microsoft’s stated target audience consists of IT
professionals with at least six months of work experience on a medium or large company
network.This means a multi-site network with at least three domain controllers, running
typical network services such as file and print services, database, firewall services, proxy services,
remote access services and Internet connectivity.
However, not everyone who takes Exam 70-290 will have this ideal background. Many
people will take this exam after classroom instruction or self-study as an entry into the networking
field. Many of those who do have job experience in IT will not have had the
opportunity to work with all of the technologies covered by the exam. In this book, our goal
is to provide background information that will help you to understand the concepts and procedures
described even if you don’t have the requisite experience, while keeping our focus
on the exam objectives.
