    Without doubt the best book I ve purchased on Active Directory The explanations are very clear and transparent, with plenty of diagrams and relevant screen shots If you re in any doubt just visit the authors web site, the content headings alone are enough to wet the appetite, and I wasn t disappointed when I started reading If I wrote a book, this is the type of book I would aspire to produce This text has the benefit of experience and is up to date.

  4. Gavin U Gavin U says:

    This book is really well written and well structured It is very similar to the MS Press Active Directory book however far superior It could do with a fresh update, but I guess that will happen with 2008 Excellent level of detail for almost everything I ve needed.

  5. Paul Cryer Paul Cryer says:

    I purchased this book off the ratings on here and a look at the authors website I have to say the book is very well written, technical terms are explained, the structure is good and the book flows very well I purchased this due to my job taking me into a deeper AD line of work and I certainly haven t regretted it It is also the sole book I read to pass the Microsoft Active Directory MCSE exam Hopefully they ll be a Windows 2008 update coming and a hardback version would be nice as well Highly recommended.

  6. Mr. O. Odewale Mr. O. Odewale says:

    I know AD consultants that don t know half the stuff that s in this book.This book goes into the innards of AD There are popular authors out there however this book tops them.If you want to know AD very, very well read this book.It s a strange thing to say, I m quite happy that not many people know about this book.

  7. Francois Ouellette Francois Ouellette says:

  8. Gary Gray Gary Gray says:

    I have been involved with Active directory since it appeared in Server 2000 I have taught classes on AD, built large infrastructures, and have immersed myself with the technology In my opinion this is one of the absolute best foundational books out there still after nearly 12 years since its release AD hasn t changed much, at its core components, since this book has come out Yes, there have been a lot of improvements but if you are looking to get a solid understanding of how AD works, you can t go wrong here I wish I had bought it when it came out I still refer to it.

    I placed an order for this book after reading a sample section over internet The picture and description of the book did not have any whereat site about volumes 1 and 2 for this book Hence I placed the order and got a book Vol 1 of 2 having chapters 1 to 6 only This is a total misguiding o the purchaser Now either I have to buy the Vol.2 for chapter 7 to 11 or return this Volu.1 back to the seller which I got yesterday.Sridharan

    I concur with the other reviews that I have read in that this is the best book on Windows 2000 that I have read and one of the best computer books I have ever read.The most unique quality is the excellent explanation of how to use scripting to maximize your results and minimize your effort This book is especially well suited to the enterprise audience that has to deploy many servers 100 and not just 1 10 If you have even a small bit of programming experience you will really appreciate the in depth explanations of Windows 2000 under the covers.

    Had looked for two months for a book for my staff to learn how to administer AD objects This book covered both the history, fundamentals and how to without digging to the level that they do not have any experience with.Would highly recommend to anyone that is starting out their AD experience by only administering objects.

  12. Danny Castillo Danny Castillo says:

    Another of my top rated and loved AD books.Just get it if you re serious about Active Directory

    It s a big book and it will take time to read, understand and apply it in my work environment I am only using the book to gain knowledge for my work and if the chance came to pursue something in this area, then it will be an added bonus.
