4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book 24 Sep 2004
By Devil
Format:Paperback
This book consists of a selection of adapted chapters published in other, specialised, works. There is a lot of good "newbie" information, but it also delves quite deeply into the important parts of WinXP Pro, such as security, networking and the registry. As a confirmed and experienced W2k user, I'm a relative newcomer to XP and I was pleased to be able to home into where the two OSs differed and how to gain the best advantage, particularly in the various ways that the registry could be backed up and restored in the event of a problem. I'd recommend this book to anyone, from a beginner to an IT expert, who is encountering XP Pro for the first time. However, I bet that old-time users can also learn a lot from it. Excellent value for money (and it doesn't come with a CD-ROM whose only use is as a coaster!).

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing! 7 Dec 2003
By "johnw3is" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Sybex books still leave much to be desired and Windows XP Processonal Complete also falls into that category. It isn't worth even the sale price of $13.99!
I wanted to learn how to delete some programs from the start menu. The programs I was looking for were not in the start menu and there is no reference to be found in the Sybex as to what to do. A free daily "Kim Komando Tip of the Day" had the simple answer -- go to "Run", type in msconfig and go to the appropriate tab and uncheck the programs you don't want to have start up. After reading this tip, I then researched the Sybex book and there is no reference in its over 1046 pages about "msconfig"! There are other things that I have attempted to research and they are not be be found in this Sybex book.
I recommend that you spend a few more dollars and buy other an Sybex books.

5.0 out of 5 stars I CALL IT THE SYBEX CLASSICAL 6 Dec 2002
By reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Like all other 'Complete' series from Sybex, this "Windows XP Professional Complete" offers an excellent combination of low price and full coverage. It is comprehensive too. There is no topic that I saw in the more popular (text) brands that I did not find in this one. And know what? It is much more simplified here!
This book is the Sybex classical. It is truly complete. My only wish is that Sybex should start attaching e-books to all her series: in the form of CD-ROMs; even if it means increasing the price a bit. Compared to its 1000-plus pages, this book is not heavy. But the extra flexibility a CD-ROM adds will gladden the souls of most mobile users.
