The book is poorly written and at 1600 pages half can be omitted as fluff. The section on automated installs is long winded and ends up leaving the reader looking for answers. In addition the book includes it entire contents on CD, which is becoming increasing more common. However in this case ALL printing abilities have been omitted leaving you with a useless tool. This tool is used by many as a study guide and having the ability to print small sections to study and take notes is a must.

Lacking Info for big HDD's ....the book is great for sitting down in your easy chair and reading. But very disappointing in the Storage Area section...the author is behind the times because he mentions nothing about larger HDD's and all the details necessary to get them to work.....Basically, he could have mentioned that you format 2000 megs on a FAT partition and 4000 Megs on an NTFS partition, then after you get NT running, you can use the Disk Administrator to get the rest of whatever's left in your HDD. However, there was very good info on Classless and Classful IP addressing. If you have time to read, then this book is for you. Makes a good reference book, too. His 7th Edition has just come out. It has about 200 more pages than the 6th ed, but I wonder if info on big HDD's was added? Mr. Minasi writes well, and adds enjoyable bits of humor in his books.

This is the best general purpose NT book that I've read--and I've read a lot of them. It does an excellent job of explaining all aspects of NT (installation, domain management, WINS, DNS, IIS4, DHCP, profiles, etc.) It also explains TCP/IP very well. In addition to giving 'cookbook' solutions, Minasi also explains what is going on so you can think through a problem on your own. For example, he give a very lucid explanation of how brower lists are created and refreshed. He also provides instructions for a host of tasks commonly faced by a sysadmin--e.g. I needed to move DHCP services from one machine to another without loosing leases, Minasi's solution worked great! This book has saved me an enormous amount of time and frustration.

Excellent coverage of all things relevant to NT4. All aspects of the system are covered completely. This book will be your best friend in your NT4 job.
