About this Book
Almost everything you need to know about this book and how best to learn from it is in Chapter 1. There are a few things I want to point out before you get started.
First, this book is written for the IT pro that needs to learn about managing Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). To best experience the book, work through the labs at the end of each chapter so you can try the concepts discussed. You should build the lab environment described in Chapter 1 and try these labs out while you are reading the other chapters. In other words, you should be in front of your computer, ready for action.
Second, you should read the book from the beginning to the end. After having gone through the book, you can use it as a reference, flipping to the chapters you need. The first time through, start at the beginning. I wrote the chapters in a logical flow of working with the IIS product, building on each chapter to form a complete picture. Don’t miss these pieces by flipping to the end.
