Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Are you a WinXP power user? Do you administer Windows computers? Just want to run Windows more productively and securely? You need Mark Minasi’s Mastering Windows XP Professional, Third Edition. Minasi tells you the real deal: how things really work (or don’t). He’s taught serious Windows topics to thousands of pros worldwide; so many folks crowded into his recent PC tuning webcast, he crashed Yahoo’s servers.

His XP Pro book covers everything the others don’t, from secure telecommuting to connecting with Server 2003 domains to the Registry. It also covers everything the others do cover -- only better. (Digital media. Internet Explorer. Troubleshooting.) This edition’s multiple improvements include an entire new chapter on security with SP2, and another on wireless networking -- both part of a whole new section on home/small office networking. Bill Camarda

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2003 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks for Dummies, Second Edition.
