The book contains good information, but you have to sift through and AMAZINGLY large amount of cheesy 'Saving The World' rhetoric. Clarke has included this stuff apparently to soften the difficulty of reading technical subject matter, but has mistakenly taken the focus off of the course material by overplaying his 'superhero' theme. The book contains a complete overview of the material included in the course objectives, but there is a frustrating lack of needed, in-depth information. There is not nearly enough information to give a solid understanding of several areas of NetWare 5, most notably Novell SAS/PKI/NICI and ZEN Works. This book can be very useful for those preparing for the NW4 to 5 Update test, if you can ignore the incessant hype, but for a complete understanding of NetWare 5, you will need one or more supplemental books to fill in the unfortunate blanks this one leaves.
Unlike the others, I like the way it was written.. It reads more like a novel than a technical manual...and the technical manuals put me to sleep. :) zzzz Although I could have used a little more of the technical information, it was still a great book!! Thanks Mr. Clark!!!!
I used David Clarke's Intranetware book to help me upgrade my CNE-3 to a CNE-I. There, I didn't mind a few jokes tossed in along with all the boring text. The jokes and puzzles actually helped to keep me awake (and that's literally speaking). Unfortunately, I feel he went waaaaay overboard with this book. I think you could probably cut out about 2/3's of it's original size yet still cover all the same information. I'm sorry to say that, just like another reviewer, I got rather annoyed at all the goofy sayings, ie, 'Are you ready for action? Let's go!' and 'Ready, set, Build!' etc.., that seemed to infect every other page. The other reviewer called it 'marketing hype'.. I saw them more as 'atta boy's'. I felt that I really didn't need to be encouraged THAT much nor THAT constantly. I also found myself feeling very annoyed every time the phrase 'we'll get to that later' appeared. Each chapter starts out with a mention of the major topics of that chapter that the author 'would get to'. As each individual topic in a chapter is talked about, subtopics are mentioned 'which we'll get to later'. It doesn't take an English major to spot an outline, especially if you beat the reader over the head with it in every single chapter. Still, it does have a lot of good information in it. Perhaps someone with higher 'fluff' tolerance would give the book a higher rating. I had a rather low tolerance because I only wanted to use it to pass the test.. which, unfortunately, I haven't been able to do after 2 tries. There's a saying, 'A poor workman blames his tools'; perhaps I'm a poor workman, but for the next try, I'm using a different book.
