Absolutely Excellent!!!

I love this book. It is filled with lots of great tips and information. Every other page I find I'm saying to myself, "This is such a great book." I have been reading many technical books and I have no patience for books with inaccurate information that all read alike; this book stands well above the rest due to accurate and well-written content.

The PERFECT book for MS Win 2K Pro Test (070-210)

I have been thinking all day about how I can adequately praise this book and still keep my review believable. The book is amazing... Well, the best way that I could put it is that I have spent hundreds of dollars on technical books in the last couple of years (about Win NT, TCP/IP, Cisco, etc.) and this book is easily in the top 5, maybe top 2.Okay, why is it so great? Most books about Windows NT and 2000 are aimed at the person who has never used the software before and spend 3/4 of the pages describing mundane things like how to add programs to the start menu, how to set up printers, etc. - the stuff you can easily figure out on your own. Then there are the high level books that talk about the strategy of setting up your multi-domain network or rolling out Active Directory across your global corporation. It is usually YEARS after a product ships before books come out that just deal with the nuts and bolts of the operating system for the IT Professional who already understands the GUI - how to REALLY troubleshoot problems, what warts there are in the OS, etc. It has only been during the past year that decent books have started coming out about Windows NT Server 4.This book has all of that info and more. For example: It has a list (in Chapter 27) of all of the common Blue Screen of Death error messages and likely sources of these problems. How cool is that? That section alone is worth the price of the book.If you are sick of books that you have skip the first 10 chapters or that don't really tell you how to actually configure things, get this book. Not coincidentally, you should also get this book if you are preparing for the MS Win 2K Pro test (070-210). You can skip the expensive (boring) training that you would pay hundreds of dollars for and just read the book.BTW I did pass the test (I got 840) and the only real studying I did was reading this book - although I have been using Win 2K Pro since it came out. That reminds me of something else: If you do buy the book, study chapters 23-25 about Automated Installation well. The test I took had almost 10 questions (out of 50) on this subject alone.Hope this helps...

Clean, Concise, easy to read and packed with good informatio

Having read the authors other book on Windows 2000 Active Directory, I immediately bought this tome. The author has a pleasant, easy to understand style of writing that is a welcome surprise - versus the standard dry recital of facts.Written in late 99' the book is based on the RC versions. Sections include; Security, GUI interface changes, Networking, Registry, Utilities, Scripting, Users and groups, Disaster recovery, Performance monitoring, group policies, silent scripted installations, automated OS installations, and how to properly craft a Windows 2000 deployment project.In addition to covering the 2000 professional product, the author points out what additional features and functionality occur on the client in a Windows 2000 active directory environment.It is a clear, well written overview of the entire Windows 2000 Professional client. It is the best such book I have read to date...
