 Remember  This book's organization doesn't match the organization of the objective list for the good reason that the objective list's organization is (in my humble opinion) a confusing mess. I've rearranged the flow of subjects for easier learning. For example, what do you do when you set up a new PC? You typically choose a file system, install the operating system, install the networking software, and get all your hardware working. Later, you set up users and groups, define access permissions, set up user profiles, and the like. Typically, the last things you do are to optimize the performance of your system and troubleshoot anything that isn't working. That's the organization of this book.
Warning The formal list is subject to change at any time, so you may want to see whether Microsoft has added or removed topics by checking the Web site. However, don't take the list of objectives as gospel. Some exam questions don't relate to the stated objectives, and, conversely, any given exam may not cover every stated objective. If I spend some time on a subject that doesn't explicitly appear in the objective list at the start of the chapter, you can assume that I saw one or more exam questions covering that subject!
