Why would you read a CCNA book for a MS test? Does Cisco talk about how to

use win2k srvr for RRAS, DNS, DHCP, WINS, hmmm, it doesn't. A CCNA book is

probably only going to explain the subnetting.

For 216, read the book, and do what you think is necessary, if you

understand what's going on, then it really is a piece of cake. You will

probably need to find some material on

www.microsoft.com/technet to gain a

better understanding of how to calculate subnets. The MSPress book is not

good at that.

i honestly dont see what the big deal is about 216.

it's not near as bad as people make out...

read a ccna book then sit down and go thru 216 and it is really easy (sort

of)
