Low Tech Tool Helps Master High Tech Tests
SEBASTOPOL, CA--The MCSE Network Essentials Exam requires
even the most experienced administrator to bone up on hard-to-remember
facts that you might normally just look up when you needed them: things
like distance limitations or number of repeaters for different kinds of cable,
or which IRQs are available for use with your NIC, or the advantages and
disadvantages of a particular network topology or cabling standard.
Sometimes, an old fashioned memorization aid is just what you need,
even when what you're studying is technology for the 21st Century.
O'Reilly's newest release,
280 flashcards covering everything you'll need to memorize for the exam.
Networking Essentials Flashcards includes three types of cards:
- Definition cards give the characteristics of a particular networking
technology, or individual facts you need to memorize.
- Compare and Contrast cards test your ability to distinguish between
two related technologies.
- Advantages and Disadvantages cards help you to remember the key
facts that you'll need to answer many of the difficult situational questions
on the MCSE exams.
But if you need to ease into the idea of a non-digital study tool, digital
samples of these invaluable Flashcards are available on the O'Reilly
web site at:
Use of the Networking Essentials Flashcards is an essential test-taking
strategy. These flashcards are based on Moncur's book MCSE: The Core
Exams in a Nutshell. They are a convenient study tool to complement a
test-preparation guide (such as
MCSE: Core Exams in a
Nutshell), and fit in
a back pocket for bus-ride or lunch-hour study sessions.
