I wanted a book on sybase replication server and bought this book since this was the only one available.
If you are studying at MIT or Princeton, and have an IQ of over 200, you may enjoy this book as it tries to explain a lot of things in the most concise and abstract way possible (without a sense of ordering and without too many useful diagrams). Since I am not that smart, I regret buying this book.
It is better to read the Sybase supplied manuals. And if possible, you may attend their course which is also good.

I bought this "primer" book because I thought it can help me to understand the Sybase Replication Server better. But this book is difficult to read and understand. You can learn much more from the Sybase manuals that come with the Replication Server. Sadly, this is the only Sybase Replication Server book which is available commercially. But it will get you no where. Save your money.

This book I read while I was in the States, the concept of the book is to try and give you an understanding of Replication in the terms of how Sybase would see it. This is the core area the book fails miserabally. Far from it, the book merely reaches it's intended goals. If you wish to learn Sybase Replication you are "better off" going on the professional course.

The level of detail is wrong from start to finish. It's too detailed to give you a good introduction to replication architecture. It's too general to be useful for hands-on work. There's a market out there for a real replication primer; too bad this isn't it.

Excellent, detailed, but what about an update for RS 12.0? 5 Jun 2000
By Philip C. Adams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you are looking for a detailed, comprehensive book on rep srvr, are in the middle of implementing a complex rep environment, or don't have time to take the classes, this book is an EXCELLENT resource. Mr. Clifford's target audience is those already reasonably versed in Rep (I am a former Sybase Prof. Services consultant & Sybase Education instructor). Sybase's manuals are generalized to some degree whereas Mr. Clifford's book provides the level of detail necessary to understand this complex topic without being excessively verbose. The writing style is clear and to the point. Keep in mind that this was written in 1995 and ASE and RS have changed since then. What are the chances for a 2nd edition for RS 12.0?

A reasonably good book but is not a primer 1 Nov 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I got this book before I attended the Sybase Replication Server course and I found it hard to understand the concepts and explanations in the book. I re-read this book after I have attended the Sybase course and found that it is easier to understand. It's a good book to have if you are still using Replication Server 11.0. Things are slightly different in versions 11.5 and above. If you want another book to suppliment the Sybase manuals, this is a reasonably good book (not that you have many choices).
