    Not good enough

    This book like many of sybex's other first edition books is full of errors. It does not cover all the required material and gives a 10,000 foot veiw of the material it does cover.

    I used Sybex books to achieve my NT 4.0 MCSE. They were wonderful. So, naturally, I decided to go with them again to start studying for W2K certification. For me it was a mistake. As you read through this big thick book, it overviews the subject then referrs you to the enclosed CD rom on how to actually work with the topic being covered. I got the book so I could read what to do and use it as a reference as I work with W2K (what I did with NT 4.0 Sybex books last go-around). My previous Sybex books had CD's but they were an 'extra' -- not 'the' information. When I buy a book, I am buying it to get information from the book, not from a CD. There are training CD's made for MSCE study -- and I buy those too. If that is what I wanted, I wouldn't have bought a book!
