Format: Paperback
There is a lot of good information in this book. It covers everything the SMS administrator is likely to encounter in the planning as well as the day-to-day operation of an SMS installation.
However, I found that comprehending that good information was a bit of a chore. To begin with, I found the typefonts used for the subsection headings were so much alike that it was hard to see the document structure. After that, I found it hard to follow the text because of the author's tendency to use SMS-specific terms before defining them. I found some occasions where the information presented was flat-out wrong. (E.g., page 314, Table 14.2, Maintenance Manager And The Polling Intervals; the intervals given from Very Fast to Slow are clearly reversed.) In parts, the text read as if it had been translated from Japanese to English and was very difficult to follow.
I did learn SMS from this book, but it was a struggle. Admittedly, SMS is a complex product. Instructing a reader in its setup and operation is bound to be equally complex. But it must be possible to define and present SMS and its underlying concepts in an orderly and coherent manner. That is why I buy a book such as this.
I have read a number of books from Sams Publishing, and I have always been impressed by the thoroughness and clarity with which they presented their subject matter. It was a disappointment to find this book falling short of the quality I have come to expect from Sams Publishing.

SMS is powerful, complex and often misunderstood package. It has a multitude of features that require experience or the next best thing: a detailed technical book. This book provides this level of information. Further, the authors are all experienced in the field bringing tips, notes and cautions that help the administrator to avoid the mistakes others have made

The editor of this book could not have possibly played a significant role in getting this book reviewed prior to publication. The editot should have cleaned up the grammar. There were simply too many short thought that could have / should have been grouped together for increased clarity.

There is a serious lack of good books that teach SMS. This book gave me the foundation that I needed to be able to pass the SMS MCP exam. This book can help those who have no prior knowledge of SMS become proficient in it's day to day maintence. A very good starter book
