10 minutes into this book and there are so many errors.
H. Gale
That might be overcome, but the key to doing the exercises is data set out in tables, and the Kindle doesn't keep ANY table formatting.
Richard Brennan
Again a new user might not have been able to continue at this point leading to frustration.

Format: Paperback
I was very excited when this book first came out because it appeared to contain step by step instructions to create compelling business solutions using SharePoint. When I began to build out the solutions I was struck by how poorly the book was edited. Many of the steps in buildout would use completely different syntax several times in the steps to represent the same word that needed to be entered to create columns or write rules. Other examples of rule writing were completely invalid and would not work. I am a SharePoint certified professional and still had to wrack my brain to try to figure out how to make certain suggestions work. Whoever edited this book definitely did not try to follow the instructions step by step and must have had no experience using SharePoint. These technology books are quite expensive and it is absurd that the publisher let it go to market in such poor condition. If you are a novice to SharePoint, purchase another book or wait for Microsoft Press to realize this slopiness and release a new version!

Format: Paperback
It's one thing to be able to build a Hello World application using a new technology. It's another thing entirely to take the next step and build something that is actually useful. That's the jump that Microsoft SharePoint 2010: Creating and Implementing Real-World Projects makes. The authors, Jennifer Mason, Christian Buckley, Brian T. Jackett, and Wes Preston take ten different business scenarios, explain the business requirements, discuss the different architectural options (along with why they chose a particular path), and then proceed to build the solution in a step-by-step fashion. The book isn't perfect, but I think it has some significant value for SharePoint developers.

Contents:
Introduction; Building a Project Management Solution; Building a Training Registration Management System; Building a Basic FAQ Solution; Building a Learning Center; Building a Help Desk Solution; Building a Remote Teams Activity Site; Building a Team Blog Platform; Building an RFP Response Solution; Building a Contact Management Solution; Building a Resource Scheduling Solution; Resources; About the Authors; Index

SharePoint is flexible in that you can accomplish a task or build a solution in multiple ways. That's also a problem because you could easily build yourself into a corner without understanding how you got there. Having a real-world solution architecture analyzed by experts is extremely valuable, and you can apply those concepts in many other areas. I also appreciate how the analysis of the business requirements takes place, as it gives you a feel for how SharePoint can be applied to your own organizational needs. The actual solution they build is almost secondary to the value I get from those first two points.

I am a sucker for practical technology books especially about Microsoft SharePoint so Microsoft SharePoint 2010: Creating and Implementing Real World Projects hits my sweet spot with its well paced projects that take readers through all the stages to create and implement a SharePoint project using out of the box features. It puts me in my mind of the excellent SharePoint 2010 for Project Management book by Dux Raymond Sy.

The projects based approach to this book is a real selling point especially since you don't even need to be a fully trained SharePoint developer/administrator in order to follow them and the create the projects. The book's projects run the gamut from a project management solution, a basic FAQ solution, to a resource scheduling solution. Project complexity grows as the book progresses but each project sticks to the format of Identifying the Business Problems; Gathering Information; Designing the Solution; Building the Solution; and Managing the Solution.

In fact, I could see arming a technical user who may not necessarily be a SharePoint developer or administrator with this book and have them work through and implement the projects themselves. The projects also take the various SharePoint versions available including SharePoint Online (part of the new Office 365) into account which is a nice touch.

Another selling point is the attention that the authors pay to the planning stages in each of the book's projects. I've often said that SharePoint isn't it's the implementation that makes it bad and the planning section of each of the book is in itself a great tutorial in SharePoint Project planning best practices.

Format: Paperback
waste of money and time - missing information/steps, lack of clarity, no error checking. Some of the information appears to be correct in theory but does not actually work properly in SharePoint due to the way SP handles certain things, such as lookup columns.

Bad book! No Cookie!

Get something else.

Spent more time reviewing errors, correcting them and making sense out of it more than what I was able to follow through instructions. Should have come in workbook format so you can have room to scribble notes all over...very poor editing adds frustration.
