Welcome to the 70-642 Exam Cram! Whether this book is your first or your
15th Exam Cram series book, you'll find information here that will help ensure
your success as you pursue knowledge, experience, and certification. This book
aims to help you get ready to take and pass the Microsoft certification exam "TS:
Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure, Configuring" (Exam 70-642).
After you pass this exam, you will earn the Microsoft Certified Technology
Specialist: Windows Server 2008 Applications certification.
This introduction explains Microsoft's certification programs in general and
talks about how the Exam Cram series can help you prepare for Microsoft's latest
certification exams. Chapters 1 through 9 are designed to remind you of every-
thing you'll need to know to pass the 70-642 certification exam. The two sam-
ple tests at the end of the book should give you a reasonably accurate assessment of
your knowledge and, yes, we've provided the answers and their explanations for
these sample tests. Read the book, understand the material, and you'll stand a
very good chance of passing the real test.
Exam Cram books help you understand and appreciate the subjects and materials
you need to know to pass Microsoft certification exams. Exam Cram books are
aimed strictly at test preparation and review. They do not teach you everything
you need to know about a subject. Instead, the author streamlines and highlights
the pertinent information by presenting and dissecting the questions and problems
he's discovered that you're likely to encounter on a Microsoft test.
Nevertheless, to completely prepare yourself for any Microsoft test, we recommend
that you begin by taking the Self-Assessment that is included in this book,
immediately following this introduction. The self-assessment tool helps you
evaluate your knowledge base against the requirements for becoming a
Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) and will be the first step in
earning more advanced certifications, including Microsoft's IT Professional and
Professional Developer (MCITP and MCPD) and Architect (MCA).
Based on what you learn from the self-assessment, you might decide to begin
your studies with classroom training or some background reading. On the other
hand, you might decide to pick up and read one of the many study guides available
from Microsoft or third-party vendors. We also recommend that you supplement
your study program with visits to to receive additional
practice questions, get advice, and track the Windows certification programs.

This book also offers you an added bonus of access to Exam Cram practice tests
online. This software simulates the Microsoft testing environment with similar
types of questions to those you're likely to see on the actual Microsoft exam. We
also strongly recommend that you install, configure, and play around with the
Microsoft Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 operating systems.
Nothing beats hands-on experience and familiarity when it comes to under-
standing the questions you're likely to encounter on a certification test. Book
learning is essential, but without a doubt, hands-on experience is the best
teacher of all!

The Microsoft Certification Program
Microsoft currently offers multiple certification titles, each of which boasts its
own special abbreviation. (As a certification candidate and computer professional,
you need to have a high tolerance for acronyms.)
The certification for end users is
    . Microsoft Office Specialists: For professionals recognized for
      demonstrating advanced skills with Microsoft desktop software
      (including Microsoft Office).

The older certifications associated with the Windows Server 2003 operating
system and related network infrastructure are
    . Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP): For professionals who have
      the skills to successfully implement Microsoft products (such as
      Windows XP or Windows Server 2003) or technology as part of a busi-
      ness solution in an organization.
    . Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technician (MCDST): For
      professionals who have the technical and customer service skills to trou-
      bleshoot hardware and software operation issues in Microsoft Windows
    . Microsoft Certified Systems Administrators (MCSAs): For profes-
      sionals who administer network and systems environments based on the
      Microsoft Windows operating systems. Specializations include MCSA:

related server products are
  . Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS): For professionals who

     technologies. The MCTS is a replacement for the MCP program.
  . Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP): For professionals who

     identified as top industry experts in IT architecture and who use multiple
     technologies to solve business problems and provide business metrics and
     measurements. Candidates for the MCA program are required to present

     the certification.
