5.0 out of 5 stars Well written and thorough 30 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am most of the way through this book and can say it is a well written, easy to read book. There could be more "real life examples" but in general all aspects of SCCM 2012 administration are thoroughly covered in this excellent companion/introduction text book.
I work in a sccm 2012 environment and have been able to use this text as a guide on improving my skillset.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 28 Sep 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I needed a book to learn SCCM 2012 from and this has nothing but some hazy advice I really feel it was a waste of time and money - seems to be produced in a hurry just for being the first
