5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Windows 2000 Book Out There
This book is incredible value. It's slightly cheaper than most other W2K books (e.g. Mastering Windows 2000 by Mark Minas), it's BIG (c 1500 pages), and most importantly it's highly informative. The authors explore almost every part of Windows 2000 in great depth (Unlike the Mark Minas effort where I had to plough through half the book to get beyond the basics)...

2.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTE Beginner?
If you are at amazon.co.uk and browsing the net, then this book is not for you. Half of the book deals with teaching such BASIC things. But if u haven't seen a Windows PC before EVER, then go ahead and buy this book.

This book is incredible value. It's slightly cheaper than most other W2K books (e.g. Mastering Windows 2000 by Mark Minas), it's BIG (c 1500 pages), and most importantly it's highly informative. The authors explore almost every part of Windows 2000 in great depth (Unlike the Mark Minas effort where I had to plough through half the book to get beyond the basics).
But the most incredible thing about this book is the enclosed CD. It has Special Edition Using Windows 98 (1000 pages), Special Edition Using Office 2000 (1500 pages) and Special Edition Using Linux (900 pages) in Acrobat PDF format included on it. Not a few sample pages, THE WHOLE BOOKS!!
Your getting 4 for the price of 1!!
A fantastic bargain.
5 Stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A marvellous one-stop resource for Windows 2000 Pro, 30 Oct 2001

This review is from: Special Edition Using Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional (Paperback)
As a long time Windows user, from the 3.1 days of yore, I only recently dipped my toe into the pool of Windows 2000. For years I have been using the "home" versions of Windows, favouring DirectX compatibility over stability, but Windows 2000 came along, so I decided it was time to give reliability a try.
But it is SO different!
If you are used to Windows 95/98se (I don't count Me because it barely made it out the box before XP came along) then there is going to be a lot in 2000 that completely stumps you. With different terminology and more advanced "everything", you won't know where to start poking the proverbial stick at first.
This book helped me immeasurably. I can now fly round Win 2000, like I can 98. For as long as 2000 graces my system, I shall never have this book too far from my desktop's reaching distance.
