The pace was intense but the results were definitely worth the effort. I have been home less than a week and have our new exchange 2007 server up and running both sending and receiving mail.” PS: Michael and Ellina take great care in making sure stay comfortable. Mark Jones CMC Microsystems “Taking Michaels class was a very enjoyable class. I was able to get all my questions answered. I had taken an Intro to Exchange 2010 from Microsoft and I learned a lot more thru Michaels Class than I did in that class. I did the class thru a web link and it was one of the best classes I have taken. I would recommend anyone to take his class, or any of his classes he teaches. I am telling my co-workers to look at the classes he teaches. ” Exchange Server 2010 Eric Sockwell Network Administrator Georgia Department of Transportation “The Microsoft Exchange 2010 SP2 MCITP Real World Boot Camp was great. The information was presented in real world fashion. It focused on best-practice implementation strategies and helpful routine maintenance scenarios. Although it was a lot to take in a short amount of time, the accompanying exercises helped solidify the material presented. Additionally, ample opportunity was afforded for questions and all were answered based on personal expertise of the instructornot looked up in a manual. As far as the venue, its not your typical sit in a classroom and follow along if you can. It is geared more like a working vacation which is an interesting twist.
