Sebastopol, CA—"SharePoint 2010 has entered the rapid-adoption phase," says Office SharePoint Server MVP Dan Holme (@danholme), coauthor of MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-667): Configuring Microsoft® SharePoint® 2010 (Microsoft Press, $69.99 USD). "More than ever, IT professionals must ensure that their architecture and configuration are sound and will scale with the needs of the enterprise. There's not just one 'silver bullet' or best practice for configuring SharePoint, so you must know about the way it works so that you can align the technology with the needs of your organization, and build a SharePoint service that works for you."

Holme continues, "The challenge was immense—to not only communicate technical information, but also to tell a story—to take the reader on a journey from A to Z so that the product is not only explained, it is understood in a way that is informed by and supports real-world implementations. I thoroughly enjoyed taking on that challenge, and with my coauthor, Alastair Matthews, I think we succeeded in authoring a book that is both a training kit and a reference, that readers will keep nearby, and use often."

This 2-in-1 kit includes the official Microsoft study guide, plus practice tests on CD to help you assess your skills. It comes packed with the tools and features exam candidates want most—including in-depth, self-paced training based on final exam content; rigorous, objective-by-objective review; exam tips from expert, exam-certified authors; and customizable testing options. It also provides real-world scenarios, case study examples, and troubleshooting labs for the skills and expertise you can use on the job.

You get detailed explanations for right and wrong answers—including pointers back to the book for further study. You also get an exam discount voucher—making this kit an exceptional value and a great career investment.
