4.0 out of 5 stars Book Review July 29, 2011
I have to use this book for my Windows Client/Server 2008 class. All in all it is a very good book. It has a lot of good information that will help you with the exam. The only issue I have is with the study guide software that came with it. The software does not match with the book. When you try to use the software to study for the exam and you get stuck on a question you can click on the hint button that gives you a page number and chapter number to help you find the answer in the book. However, the page and chapter numbers do not match up with the book itself, thus making it hard to find the information. Thank god for the index. I figured what they did was make new changes to the publication and just printed new versions of the book without doing the following update on the study guide software.

3.0 out of 5 stars The book is OK. February 16, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are expecting to learn server administration with this book; you will be disappointed. It does come with a 180 day windows server 2008 32-bit installation cd and a study guide cd.

3.0 out of 5 stars Convenient March 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Using it with the kindle fire is convenient, yet requires more work adjusting the screen to bigger text and moving the screen back and forth to view each line. If you're using the book for class participation, be advised that you may find it difficult to find related text and graphics figures in the kindle fire version. I also notice that the graphics can be a little fuzzy.

I recently used this in a college class and was very easy to comprehend. The exercises were arranged in a step by step process that can be understood and easily followed. If you're going for this particular certification I would get this guide.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was a supplemental book
It was a supplemental book recommended by the instructor for a computer course I was taking at the local community college. I didn't actually use it, but may yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars alot of examples and pictures
It may sound childish, but having the step by step exercise along with the screenshots of what menu or place it is at helps alot. I really was happy with this book. No complaints.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very scattered
It may just be inevitable given the huge amount of individual concepts and details in server administration, but I find this book very hard to learn from. Read more

Great! The book was as I expected. It is brand new and saved me about $20.00 from the college book store price.
