The end of every chapter reads like a product catalogue for EMC products, including buzzwords.
It seems like some guy at EMC walked into their data center and said, "Hey, Pete, you know all about this SAN stuff. Write a book about it and don't forget to promote our products."
I don't recommend it, unless, like me, you were assigned this book for a SAN class. If that's the case, hope your instructor is good at instructing and doesn't expect the book to tell you how everything you just read goes together. Because the book is terrible at that.
Disclaimer: this book was for a course designed for a full college semester that was for some reason condensed into 8 weeks. The material does not have nearly enough time to be absorbed and comprehended properly in that time. Perhaps over a regular 16 week semester, this book would provide more usefulness.
I purchased this book in order to understand SAN and NAS storage. The first three chapters were mostly a review of what I already knew about storage devices and RAID. The book became more interesting upon transitioning to the components that made up a modern storage array. Soon I found myself reading topologies and mechanisms involved in Fibre Channel, FCoE, iSCSI, NFS and CIFS storage.
Surprisingly, I wanted to read the book a second ... and also a third time. Then it occurred to me that maybe I ought to take the EMC Storage Associate certification exam. Why not? I was seeing storage management in totally new ways by now.
I took and passed the exam two days ago. This book covered everything within the exam -- just as I had read elsewhere.
The Second Edition is a big improvement over the first. The first edition wasted a lot of ink on topics that, while interesting, are largely irrelevant (like calculating IOps by hand using disk speed and seek time). It seemed a lot more convernced with the mechanics of storage than the applicability, and as such, bogged down pretty badly in some places.
This version remedies most of those complaints. It spends a lot of time on current technologies -- like cloud, flash, and others - that the first version did not.
My intent on purchasing this book was to write the ISM exam. I was able to successfully do so.

Going to use this before taking my EMC exam but can also use this as a good starting pointy to just learn about storage.
Some more exercises and real world scenarios would be useful and maybe access or more than just the one practice exam.
Lots of indepth information which helped me pass the e10-001 exam.
