    I wasted a lot of time with ISA Server using the intrinsic help, and another ISA title. Neither of those resources answered questions I had, resolved issues that came up, or could adequately serve as a spot reference. This title does.The authors of this book have obviously spent a great deal of time with the product, and they pass the information on to you. Extras throughout the pages alert you to undocumented features and issues, security repercussions, and situation workarounds that would be very time consuming to have discovered on your own. The book is presented in such a way that it is useful no matter what stage you are in, initial installation, configuration or support. Thus far, every support and configuration question that I have had regarding ISA has been answered clearly and efficiently by this title.The book also comes with a CD-ROM which has the book in electronic form, which is great for quick reference, but has a horrible search feature. Other than that, I really wish that I had picked this title up at the start of my ISA project - it would have saved countless hours of work and frustration.

    What can I say. This book rocks. I was totally new to ISA. But not new to the Microsoft world. (I have MCSE). But where so many books fall over, is that they give you so much junk info when all you need is the facts. This book got straight to the point. I flick over the pages. Then the next day I went in and installed. I had my server running with exchange, intranet, and internet by the end of the day. I could spend another 2 days reading and be ready to sit my MCSE exam. This is the best tech book I have ever read in my life. well done --Hawk EYE--

    This book is hands-down superior to the Simmons book (I have both). Chapter 1 alone has more technical details and depth than the entire Simmons book.If you're trying to decide which one to buy, GET THIS ONE !

    Fair Book at time usedSome Useful in ClassroomNeeds updating even before ISA updatesWould not re-purchase

    It is really a very nice book. It answers many of your configuration questions in easy explained manner. it is a must for people who want to implement many configurations using ISA server.Always have a look at [...]

    I installed ISA on a Windows 2000 network in two days using this book and the Simmons MCSE as my primary references. I preferred this book to the Simmons MCSE book because it is was more readsble. (Simmons has a second ISA book that has received great Amazon reviews, and I am a big fan of many of his books.)The book is printed on better than average paper, and 909 pages result in a volume that is thinner than the 655 pages in the Simmons MCSE book. The installable CD has the full text in several different formats including a fully searchable HTML format. The CD also includes a nice set of audio tutorials and access to a web site for further assistance.I was forced to fall back on my Microsoft IP networking library to review of some basic IP networking concepts. One certainly wants to frequently use the [router print] command from the command prompt to check routing tables on any host or serer when trouble shooting the installation, and neither the Simmons of Shinder books covered basic IP routing in any detail. The Shinder book said right out that a companion IP networking book would be usefulA big hint. After you install ISA perfectly including the trivial setup of clients as SecureNAT clients (more complex client types readily available), you can't initially get anything through ISA, not even a simple web browser request to the Internet. Go to Chapter 8 and set up rules to allow Internet access. (Simmons covers this more concisely and perhaps better on page 127.)This book is actually by two Shinders, Dr. Thomas Shinder and Debra Littlejohn Shinder, Toms' wife. When a real MD turns to software consulting as his full-time career you can be sure he really loves the stuff. The style of the book shows this. It is nicely written. The Shinders are authors of several other Windows 2000 books.

    Been waiting for a long time for this one, but it turns out to be worth it. I really liked the background and design info in the first chapters, and how the book takes you all the way from basic security concepts to very specific scenarios on configuring and administering ISA.Just about everything is covered, and what's really neat is that things are explained so a beginner can understand, but you've also got all these advanced configuration tips and tons of stuff that you definitely won't find in the Help files. You can tell these guys are writing from hands on experience and it shows!I know it's not meant to be a study guide, but I found a lot of answers to my questions here while I was studying for the ISA test. The only complaint I've got was the long waiting period for the book to be published. I wish they wouldn't put a date it's supposed to be available and then not ever update that.I also found out about from the book where Tom Shinder gives all sorts of support for ISA questions and that's a great resource.

    I purchased this book because we required ISA Server setup in our organization. Our previous firewall was Checkpoint, but management wanted a new MS solution.Virtually everything I needed to know was within this text. The documentation provided with the product was difficult to understand, but the book explained not only the theory, but the differences between how ISA Server is supposed to work, and how it works in practice. That is precisely the information I required.The information is accurate and clearly explained. I am not sure what another reviewer meant by problems with quality of information. He said the book did not explain how to publish an ICMP server. The book clearly explains Server Publishing only works for the UDP and TCP protocols.This is a most excellent book and I highly recommend to ISA Server Admins and others needing to implement ISA Server.
