Intro to Exchange Server 2010 - Train Signal - J. Peter Bruzzese

Intro to Exchange Server 2010
Train Signal
J. Peter Bruzzese


This was an amazing little course. Mr. Bruzzese uses a process of scenario based learning. We are given a case study and together look at the requirements and options and then do an installation on configuration of an exchange environment. The course works through the following topics:

Lessons:
Intro to Exchange Server 2010 Course Introduction
The Evolution of Exchange Over 15 Years
Installing Exchange 2010
Exchange Management Tools
Mailbox Overview and Configuration
An Overview and Configuration
An Overview of Server Role
Unified Messaging
Working with Public Folders
High Availability and Database Availability Groups
Transition from Exchange 2003/2007 to 2010

The course packs a lot of material into about 6 hours of instruction. I loved the course as a refresher. The two best lessons were: The Evolution of Exchange Over 15 Years, and Transition from Exchange 2003/2007 to 2010. The evolution one was awesome and the history cover in it was amazing to learn. The greatest strength of the course is the instructor and his passion for the subject; he is also a great communicator which always makes self-paced study better. The only real weakness or omission for the course is that there are no downloads associated with the course. No course outline or instructor notes like almost all the other TrainSignal courses. It would have been nice to have this, especially with some of the links he provides to blogs, and sites to help support your continued training and knowledge in Exchange.  This course is intended as an introduction and it does an amazing job of a quick and easy overview. Looking forward to more courses from TrainSignal and hopefully J. Peter Bruzzese.
