I purchased this book to prepare for the 70-542 exam. The book is very well written and its just hard to believe that so many concepts were covered in just 300 odd pages. Please note that this book is for developers and not for administrators. The book covers development concepts for search, BDC, infopath forms services, excel services, policies, records center and more.
I absolutely loved the way Patrick had a flow of thoughts going on in the book. It made absolute sense. Also, The chapter on BDC is probably the most comprehensive BDC coverage I have seen till date at one place. If you dont know anything about BDC and read this chapter, thats all you would need to know.
I just loved it.

There's a good bit of information out there about SharePoint search. Patrick & Lars did a fantastic job pulling all this together in this book. You see the OOTB config options, a solid discussion on the other search options with the MSFT Search Server editions. I really like the API stuff though... working with the full text and keyword searches in the API as well as a detailed discussion on the Query and QueryEx Web services. The section on customizing the OOTB search result response is also very helpful.

First of all, I am the real deal and a true SharePoint administrator and developer. Yes, I do both and to me that's just a given because SharePoint is web development, but with a different approach and focus. I won't get into all that but I will say that when MOSS2007 was released back in January 2007 there was absolutely nothing in the form of documentation from Microsoft much less any written material that could offer some insight as to what could be done and how to apply it. This was the first book along with Ted Pattison's WSS3.0 book that I purchased back then and they were both invaluable and instrumental to my success as a SharePoint developer. To this day I see this book as one of the best out there and an excellent book to start off with in getting familiar with WSS 3.0 and the office integration. This book is for, as you want to call it, both the administrator and the developer. It's well written and provides a wealth of useable, applicable, and valuable real world scenarios and solutions. Don't know the best way to create a page layout? Get this book! What else can I say?

This book has been a gold mine. It does have the administrative foundation but where it really shines is in opening up the hood and explaining how the engine works at a fairly low level. Without the chapter on protocol handers and filters, we never would have been able to develop a custom ifilter for our customers. We are digging into the Query API now and shows promise in solving a user complaint on how people search should be sorted alphabetically.

The listed code snippets have been helpful and they are sprinkled liberally throughout the text. This leads me to a major disappointment, the The URL mentioned in the book for downloading the complete code samples and small utilities used in the book now points to a Microsoft training site and the only mention of the code samples is in the marketing blurb right above "Buy this book now for $49.99!". Hitting the search engines gives nothing either. TechNet and MSDN have pages that reference the same classes but no code samples. Specifically, there is a screenshot on page 427 of a demo app for trying out SQL queries against the index and displays the results. The chapter mentions that the demo is part of the sample package and implies that it is available online. Where though? I've yet to find it.

I'd love to give this book a 5 star rating, but without the code samples, 4 is all I can give it.

This book covers the MS Search platform (not FAST) for enterprise search. It covers both MOSS and Search Server 2008 concepts.

It covers basic configuration, architecture, and coding approaches - so it's useful for both IT and Developers wanting to get the most value out of by far the best Enterprise Search platform on the market. Why is enterprise search so different? Well, search in the enterprise is NOT just a bunch of web pages - it's content stored in documents, spreadsheets, powerpoints, PDF files, file shares, Lotus Notes, etc.

The author presents a pretty good sampling of how-to material (it would be difficult to get full coverage of MOSS without a multi-volume issue) but falls a bit short of what I might expect from an "Inside..." title. I would have liked to see more detail on some of the deeper architectural workings of MOSS. The author no doubt knows product extension with .NET well and provides an abundance of attention - especially to search customization development. To the author and publishers' credit, the book is targetted to a developer audience. All in all a solid effort.

The SharePoint 2007 search engine includes quite a lot of new features and customization options.

This is the only book I have seen that covers all aspects of the SharePoint 2007 search engine. The book is an ideal reference for anybody that want to learn about how use, customize and administrate the search engine.

The book includes also more complex topics such as using facetted search and the search API.
