Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

With its concise explanations, accurate procedures, and excellent index, Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Administrator's Pocket Consultant reminds you how to perform common and moderately obscure Windows NT tasks. It won't teach you how to administer Windows NT if you're starting from zero, but it's superior in its ability to refresh a knowledgeable technician's memory. If you know what you need to find--for example, the command for converting a FAT (file allocation table) volume to NTFS (NT file system)--you'll be able to locate it quickly in this book.

This pocket guide is the next best thing to having memorized every procedural detail of users, security, file systems, and networking. It makes an excellent review guide for the Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 exam (70-067). In fact, it's better than many books designed specifically for that purpose.

Microsoft Press put some thought into the physical design of this book and the others in its series. It's compact and has plastic-coated covers, but the binding won't lie flat--you'll have to use weights or clips to keep it open to a particular page while you use both hands on the keyboard. --David Wall

I have been in this business since there was a business to be in and I have YET to see a technical reference that cuts to the point as quickly as this one.
Want to set up DNS? Never done it? You can now! And in less than 20 minutes with no specific DNS knowledge!
Any aspect of administring NT servers can be performed in 30 minutes or less!
Control security, Build a better workstation with docked and undocked profiles (THAT REALLY WORK!) and much much more!

Format: Paperback
This is a great book with all the essential information for day-to-day NT administration. Its compact size and its cover are simply fantastic. As a result of this book, I am picking up other "Administrator's Pocket Consultant" books for SQL7 and Exchange 5.5 . Does anyone know when the IIS4 Administrator's Pocket Consultant is coming out ..if ever?

Format: Paperback
I read the wonderful reviews this book got and ran to the store to buy it. I run a small school district network and had several real world issue's I was looking for resolution to before purchasing it . . . this book did not help with one.
This might be an OK book to learn the basics (thus the 2 stars), but it has no troubleshooting tips or advanced network issues that gave me any real world help.
Several hours, 3 NT4 books and 2 cell phone calls from my wife asking where I was later, I left with the Windows NT4 Administrators Survival Guide.
These other reviews must have been written by the authors relatives!

Format: Paperback
Contains nothing but useful information, yet covers everything. If you have at least some previous knowledge and understanding of NT 4.0 this book is an excellent resource. It deals with topics from drive array configuration and TCP/IP considerations to Managing Users and Groups. Everything is laid out and explained in a concise, to the point, easy to read format. Read it cover to cover for an overview/review of NT 4.0 or keep it with you as a reference tool.

A valuable reference for experienced NT administrators. Sure, you've done a certain task before but it was a year ago- and you just need a tap in the right direction. The size is great, keep a copy in the server room. The index is thorough and the chapters logically organized. A great addition to your toolbox.

Format: Paperback
While it may not actually fit in your pocket, what this book does very well in put information in bite-size chunks. It is short and too the point, instead of the usual 20 pages of fluff that one has to read through to find the info they need. This is book is a definite must.

Format: Paperback
I was looking for NT book that wasn't a huger paperweight. Other NT books on my desk are over 1,000 pages and mostly junk stuff I don't care about. I took a chance on this book and to my surprise its great! The author's knowleges of NT is great. I've been admining for 3 years and I learned a great deal just by browsing. The book is small enough to carry wherever I go and the pages are thick and rugged to last. I recommend this to every NT admin looking for a consise guide. Its accurate too!
