Very much an entry level course, but covers a lot of material. Bought as a refresher to my official syllabus course, this would have been a better purchase than the course.

For someone who is wanting to learn the ins and outs of Microsoft's powerful new scripting language, I bought this book to help me understand the basics. The book is written well and is easy to understand however it may not be what you are after.

Most people when they want to use a scripting language do not care how they can make it generate random numbers or perform various levels of arithmetic. Instead they want to utilise the language to perform a specific task - in my case MS Exchange 2010 mailbox and Active Directory management. This is great, but this book (nor any other book) will be able to help you with this. You're best saving money and time and simply searching for the command you need to perform.

I am not saying this book is useless, far from it - it's an essential tool if you are wanting to actually learn how to use the scripting toolbox provided by Microsoft - however if you're just wanting to export a list of users from a security group then just search for that and save yourself the hassle.

Sadly it doesn't go into much detail about how powershell should be structured. I assume it thinks you already know powershell already. Not for a beginner at all. It's also very short, which leads me to believe it only covers what's new. Also nothing at all about Azure, so anything related to Office 365 is not in this book.

Very Good Book 27 Jan. 2014
By John Zielke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a very good book, it starts you out by showing your the basics of the language and then slowly takes you into the deeper sections of windows (AD, registry, etc)

I have found this book very helpful but I do have a complaint. The author shows you the commands that work with Windows 8 and Server 2012 now what if you are using Windows 7 some of these commands will not work and it does not tell you that it will only work in Windows 8 / Server 2012, if they would at least have a arrow... only works with Windows 7 I would really appreciate that.

I have learned a lot from this book and am sure I will purchase other books in his collection in the future, but if you are about to purchase this book to learn Power Shell 3.0 I would suggest you have Windows 8 and or Server 2012 handy.

Excellent PowerShell Resource 17 July 2013
By Brian Wilhite - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Ed Wilson is the Microsoft Scripting Guy and in his latest installment, as of this review, he shares his PowerShell knowledge with those eager to learn PowerShell. Whether you are just starting out or an experienced "PowerSheller", you shouldn't pass this book up. The flow of the book is great for the beginner and familiar to the expert, he does a great job covering the basics through advanced topics. I recommend this book to all Windows Administrators as a PowerShell learning tool.

Useful even for advanced beginners 22 Jan. 2014
By BostonSunSA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've been using powershell for a little while, by looking at a powershell cookbook, my colleagues' scripts, and googling a lot. In fact, I've used a fair number of this author's scripts from his Hey Scripting Guy! blog. I've been able to do most of what I want to, but it's been very much trial and error. I was worried that this book might be too easy for me, but it's actually already been highly useful for putting everything I've been doing into context. I haven't even finished Chapter 1 and already feel like I understand much more than I did before starting to read this.

Go Scripting Guy!
