Paul A. Mancuso (SME, MCT, MCITPro, MCSE NT 4.0, 2000, 2003:Security and Messaging, CCSI, CCNP, CCNA, CCDA, MCNE, CNI, CTT+) has been consulting in the network services area for more than 18 years and training on high-technology products and services for more than 16 years. Paul has picked up the leading certifications in every field he consults and provides training for. These include MCITPro, MCSE:Security for Windows Server 2003, MCSE in Windows 2000 and Windows NT 4.0, CISSP, CCNP, CCNA, CCDA, and
MCNE, among others. In addition to these certifications qualifying his consulting, Paul has picked up many of the prestigious instructor certifications, starting with Novell CNI, Cisco CCSI, Microsoft MCT, and Lotus Notes original CLI; he also has earned the industry’s recognized instructional certification, CTT+ from CompTIA. Paul earned a bachelor of science degree from Ohio State University in zoology and premed. He decided late in his studies to turn his attention toward business services, finance, marketing, and computers. His studies in these areas
introduced him to the early beginnings of local area networks (LANs), which later spearheaded a revolution in business processes. This early introduction into LANs motivated him to begin his career in network integration after he graduated from Ohio State; it has been his passion ever since. With a recent focus on creating content for training, Paul (along with Chris
McCain) authored the award-winning NITTCI practice exams for Microsoft, Cisco, and CompTIA’s Security+ and Network+. In addition, Paul has coauthored courseware for Microsoft Windows MCSE courses, courseware, and practice exams for Microsoft Windows Vista, as well as courseware and practice exams for Cisco CCNA for NITTCI. In addition to this book, Paul recently authored MCITP 70-622 Exam Cram: Supporting and Troubleshooting Applications on a Windows Vista Client for Enterprise Support Technicians (ISBN-13: 9780789737199) for Que Publishing, and MCITP Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-237): Designing Messaging Solutions with Exchange Server 2007 (ISBN-13: 9780735624092) and MCITP Self-Paced
Training Kit (Exam 70-647): Windows Server 2008 Enterprise Administration (ISBN-13: 9780735625099), which are both due to publish in summer 2008 with Microsoft Press.
Using his consulting experience and his past and continued present experience as a learner, Paul has come to understand the complexities involved in training technology that is rapidly evolving every day. His enthusiasm for networking can be found in every work he authors and every lecture he gives.
