Like Microsoft’s own courses, the boot camp is focused on teaching you the core basics you need to set up and administer Exchange 2010 – it isn’t aimed at some of the more complex scenarios like multi-site DAG failover design, but then again the equivalent Microsoft courses don’t either, and they cost a lot of money to attend. But what this does cover is topics such as:

  • How to build your training lab
  • Setup of Windows and Active Directory
  • Installing Exchange Server 2010
  • Configuring Exchange roles including Mailbox, Client Access and Hub Transport
  • Management of recipients, including Mailboxes, Contacts and Distribution Groups
  • Backup and recovery of Exchange

The topics are split up into four modules, and each module is split up into a number of different videos that are easy to digest – for example the Recipient Management module is split up into 6 videos of around 10 minutes or under.
