    Does this book cover the changes brought on by the release of Windows Server 2012 R2?

    @Josh – no, we will have an R2 edition of this book coming out in the next few months. We're still working on it. – Kim

    I am currently on the course in college, I hit chapter 3 Advanced DHCP and DNS and the first lesson review answers are not in the answer pages at the end of the chapter. Lesson 1 is actually Lesson 2 answers on page 204 – 205 and lesson 2 and 3 are the same answers, so that means Lesson 1 answers were left out of the book. I'm wondering if I could get a copy of the answers for Lesson 1 so I can review them before taking the exam? The Lesson 1 questions I am referring to are on page 133 of the Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services book.

    Too funny.  I, too, noticed the Chapter 3 lesson reviews and answers.  Very confusing.
