4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive but has MSFT "blinders" 8 Jan 2012
By DCW - Published on Amazon.com
These books are well written and comprehensive. Most of the explanations are clear, reasonably concise, and fairly complete, and the books teach a great deal by prose, example, and practice. They are, by far, the best resources I have used yet.

But they still suffer from what I call "Microsoft blindness", the ingrained assumption that the reader (a) has worked extensively in the Microsoft space and (b) has never worked anywhere else. There's a Microsoft Mindset that the writers assume the readers have, and if you happen to be experienced in non-Microsoft technologies, it's almost like reading in a foreign language. If you speak the language well but not fluently, you can translate it, but you struggle to "think" in Microsoft -- or, at least, I do, having long non-Microsoft experience before entering the Microsoft world.

These books could be improved substantially if the writers kept in mind that some readers come from other environments, even if they just did it in sidebars with a signpost here and there, for the things that are quite reasonably obvious to Microsoft devotees that aren't obvious at all to those coming from the outside. One example of many is ongoing references to the .Net development framework. If you haven't developed code for Windows, which is quite possible for an incoming system administrator, many of the .Net references will make little sense, while to a .Net developer they are obvious and intrinsic to the environment.

Microsoft has simultaneously gotten better about playing well with other technologies while making their own more and more comprehensive. Their authors and editors should keep that in mind for future editions.
2.0 out of 5 stars Preps for half the material. 30 July 2013
By Tharien - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
These books are touted as comprehensive training kits to achieve certification, however; the material in the books only contain about 60% of what is actually needed.

I would not recommend these books to anyone serious about passing the examines. These should be considered reference and not prep.

I would have dropped it to one star as it's so misleading, but there are some valuable bits of info here.
4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Info 2 July 2012
By ricano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read a few pages of all the books from this set. I've found the information very useful. The exercises at the end of each section help to reinforce the learning of the concepts covered throughout the chapters. Even if the step by steps directions do not always give the expected results, but as a network administrator or future network adminstrator you should be comfortable to figure out the problems and make educated guess as how to accomplish certain tasks based on the understanding of the concepts behind "click here and click there". Overall it is a good set of books to learn windows server 2008 r2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Material, "A Must Have" 20 Mar 2012
By TOW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent set for the seasoned AD / MS Guru wanting to further their knowledge with the next big OS for Microsoft. The details of the lessons show you precise locations of where to get all of the resources you will need to complete each training exercise. My recommendation to anyone who looks to expand their knowledge with an MCITP certification.
