NEW MCSE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL
This issue of W2Knews contains:
As you know, the NewsFlash is the short update in between full issues
of NTools E-News. Next weekend you will get a Full Issue. This is our
MCSE Christmas special and we have a great offer for you: Get your
MCSE Complete now, and get a copy of NT Performance Booster AutoPilot
FOR FREE! (For NT Server that is a $295 value)
Earlier this year, thousands of you responded to the MCSE Web Survey.
Some astounding numbers came out, and the most impressive result was
this: A whopping 44% of you indicated that you would purchase a full
MCSE Computer Based Training kit if it would only cost $150. Then
another 43% said 'Maybe". Only 9% said no. An absolutely ENORMOUS 76%
of you is planning to become an MCSE! In fact, we have gotten the
first people that bought the MCSE Complete come back to us with their
full MCSE Certification in less than 6 months, see the success story
And now we have a brand new version 1.1b out, completely updated with
many extras. For existing MCSE customers, your update V1.1b CD has
been sent (finally) by Macmillan Publishing directly to you by snail
mail and should arrive before Christmas. If you want to know where your
copy is, email [email protected] At the end of this message are all the
specs of the new version. I've got a copy in my hands and it looks good.
In our earlier surveys this year you indicated the reasons you wanted
to become an MCSE:
* Get promoted and make more money
* Get industry recognition
* Get to really understand NT
Sunbelt is happy to support you in that goal and get it in your reach.
And for 1998 Christmas we have created a really cool bundle: MCSE +
AutoPilot. Just $150 is an unheard of value breakthrough, normally
similar full MCSE training materials (All Core Exams plus 2 Electives
and 3000 exam prep questions) are over $1,000. But you can order your
own kit _right now_ in our Online Shop. This really is EVERYTHING
you need to become an MCSE fast. Check out the specs at:
(OK, you can get MCSE complete with a discount at other online shops
like Amazon or Booklink, but nobody else but Sunbelt can throw in a free
$295 NT Booster tool like this Christmas Special!)
This is the time to whip out that credit card and order youself a
Christmas present via the web. Perhaps it's the first time you order
via the internet. No worries, it is a secure connection, we use the
same company Microsoft uses for their online sales and we have an
_unconditional_ 30-day money back quarantee. Crediting your Card is no
more than two mouse clicks for us.
Personally I have not seen such a good buy in YEARS. To make sure you
get your copy fast we sell single copies via the Sunbelt Online Shop.
We have outsourced the shipping to a very large outfit that can handle
thousands of items per day, and they get your order electronically via
the on-line shop. This Christmas bundle is an exceptional value for you
NT System Administrators.
Sunbelt is in the business of selling software with an average order
size of many thousands of dollars. A $149.99 dollar item is not something
that is going to make us rich, but we _do_ want you to benefit from
this great opportunity, seen the enormous interest you have in becoming
an MCSE. See it as a service we are providing you, and a benefit of
being subscribed to NTools E-News?
We sell ONLY ONE per person via the on-line shop. You want to be fast and
make sure you get your copy before Christmas is actually here. This
offer is valid for Domestic US only. If you live outside of the US, we
have a deal with Macmillan publishing: Find a local bookstore that
sells the MCSE Complete, buy your copy and then send an email to
[email protected]elt-software.com with the name of your bookseller, the
date you purchased & the amount, and you get your free AutoPilot from
Sunbelt. Macmillan checks it up with the bookstore afterward.
Once again, get your new copy before Christmas. Here is all the info
and the Online Shop: http://www.sunbelt-software.com/mcsecomp.htm
For the AutoPilot Specs: http://www.sunbelt-software.com/autoplt.htm
You get the FREE AutoPilot download URL via the email confirmation the
Online Shop sends you immediately after your purchase with a credit card
(AMEX, Visa, Master).
PRODUCT SPECS MCSE COMPLETE V1.1 REVISION B
Product Update CD-ROM 10/98
This product has been updated as follows with a replacement CD-ROM
This CD-ROM supercedes all earlier versions of MCSE Complete. From
now on, you should use this CD-ROM instead of the disc which shipped
with the product. All product updates, including patches downloaded
from our web site (http://www.mcp.com) have been incorporated into
this build. Disc space used by downloads has been reclaimed.
Two additional course modules have been added to MCSE Complete:
Implementing and Supporting Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5 provides
preparation for exam 70-081. Since course 07076 (Implementing and
Supporting Microsoft Exchange Server 5) is still valid, this new
course is added automatically if you previously selected 07076
(Exchange Server 5) as an elective.
070-64 Installing and Supporting Windows 95 replaces course 07063
(Installing and Supporting Windows 95) which has been retired. Both
courses are available to customers whose CD-ROM offered the original
Updated Electronic Reference Guides:
Figures and tables are now inline with the text. You no longer have
to click on a hyperlink to view a graphic or a table. This change
has been applied to all online reference guides, except 07063 (Windows
95) and 07076 (Exchange Server 5).
It is now easier to change background watermarks and font sizes using
the options menu.
TestPrep is now Top Score! Top Score is the new name for New Riders'
test simulation software. The TestPrep Navigator is now called Top
Score Navigator. All online files and applications have been updated
to reflect this change.
Extensively Updated Question Datasets. Question databases have been
expanded and revised to improve quality and scope of material covered.
This is an ongoing process, so be sure to check our web site
(http://www.mcp.com) for updates.
And to show you that this CAN BE DONE, here is a complete email we
recently received from one very happy camper:
