Format: Paperback
This book only contians a very basic overview of the nessisary concepts. If you are only interested in a high level overview then this book is for you. However if you actually need to implement Exchange Server 2010 then you should find a different book.

For instance; This book DOES NOT explain the folowing:

- Explain a migration plan from 2003 or 2007 to 2010. This book glosses over all of the requierments of how to do a migration. This book completely fails in this regaurd.

- How to configure Outlook Web Access (OWA). It skips the whole topic of SSL certificates and the need for them.

- How to configure Outlook Anywhere. This book only makes mention of how you click on the link to enable Outlook Anywhere; it does not tell you how to setup everything so that it will actually work.

- How to setup your server for Database Availability Groups (DAG's). This book skips all of the nessisary steps in configuring your server for two nic's, configuring the heartbeat settings and installing the nessisary cluster resources.

- How to setup multiple Hub Transport or Client Access servers for High Availability. This book only gives lip service to the possibility and does not tell you in any way how to configure multiple servers so that you have a highly available configuration.

Very basic overview of Exchange 2010 and its features. I am really disaapointed,comparing this to the same book for Exchange 2007. The book has alot of copy/paste information from the Exchagne 2007 version. It wont go over level 200 in depth of informaiton. Where is DAG, CAS Array, Shadow redudnacy,ECP details,RBAC ?!

Only on page 12 and already there are inconsistencies/inaccuracies....
The third paragraph says that Enterprise Edition supports 150 databases. The table below it says 50+ databases. TechNet says Enterprise Edition supports 100. So TECHNICALLY the table is right, but you'd look pretty silly if you told a customer that "50+ databases" is the same as "100 databases".
I realize there are tremendous time pressures involved in the book publication, but really - if I have to go to TechNet for accurate information in the end anyway - is the book worth the money?
The information on DAGs is VERY light on design recommendations - how do you configure for site resilience, how do you configure failover preferences, how can you use lagged databases, etc...
And forget it if you want specific information on new options for storage design - JBOD, DAS, etc....
In my opinion, being the first out of the gate with a new book is great...but having an accurate, detailed resource is more useful.

On the positive side, the information about FIM and OCS 2007 R2 is interesting.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very, very disappointed by this book.
The editing was just plain shocking, in several instances it uses the incorrect version of Exchange, eg, Exchange 2007 introduced the Unified Messaging Role and Exchange 2007 has built on that
In the section on securing Exchange with ISA the author uses the wrong product altogether changing Exchange 2010 for SharePoint.
The book is about 500 pages too long as well. Every time a concept is discuses it seems that the authors felt the need to define it EVERY TIME. This lead to me skipping large portions of the book because it had already been discussed in earlier chapters.

I would recommend getting the Pocket Administrators Consultant as that is a significantly better book.

Format: Paperback
I was going to just press the order button on this book, but I went and actually checked out a copy at borders. I thought it was a very broad overview of different topics, and VERY few screenshots. There was also unnecessary information included, like too broad of information. It's like hello, and engineer would be the one reading this book, you don't have to tell us every little thing that most newbies would take as common sense. Perhaps this makes smother reading, but I didnt get the feeling this book was focused enough, and to the point. I made the mistake of buying a ton of Exchange 2007 books before, and EVERY time I need to do something, I search the books and can not find anything on the subject. Perhaps wait until you really have questions, and then check out the books. Perhaps our time would be better spend just looking on the internet at various websites. Perhaps this is a good book if you are brand new to Exchange all together.

This book goes on and on and skips over the relevant information needed to actually implement Exchange 2010. I was extremely disappointed and actually ending up using MS help. This book was a big waste of my time and money.

Format: Paperback
Even if I'm a Linux SE mainly working in the *nix world every now and then I am still exposed to integration problems and anyhow like to follow the Exchange development (I've used to work as a product specialist on the technology) and this is why I've bought this book, the only available so far.

Well as other have noted this is simply a copy and paste from the previous version of the book, even with lot of errors like "...Exchange Server 2007 integrates directly with AD RMS...", hey wait I thought this book was about Exchange 2010 and not 2007, if you check the 2007 edition you'll find the exact same sentence... as I said a big work of copy and paste.

The book is overall well organized and written but in my opinion it lacks the right level of detail to be a must buy in the IT Guy arsenal, the book tries to cover every aspect of Exchange 2010 and maybe this is the main reason cause it lacks so much... all the informations in the book can easily be found on Technet, so if they freely available why bother buying a book? What I would have loved to see in the book are more examples, more screen shots, more details and real world scenarios/problems!

This can be a good book if you're a fresher moving your first steps in the Exchange world but definitely would not recommend it to people who are already familiar with Exchange 2007 or need a deep analysis of possible implementation scenarios.
