Inside Active Directory: A System Administrator's Guide begins with an overview and covers Active Directory's core features before moving on to document more advanced, specialized skills. This book provides a solid understanding of Active Directory fundamentals, demonstrating how it is used to store and access data, and how it uses industry standards, such as LDAP and other directory protocols.
