5.0 out of 5 stars Great book packed with details
Before buying, I read the other reviews. The main comment seemed to be "boring, too many details." Well if you're like me and love to know how things really work, this is the book to have. For the first time I have documentation on a number of registry flags and tricks to make my computer perform better. Plus the real reason I bought the book (the CD) is...

2.0 out of 5 stars This book in one word- GARBAGE!
This book was a total waste of money. I wanted a book that would cover lots of information, but this is certainly an overkill. What else can you expect from Microsoft. However, a good point about the book is that it is a TRUE REFFERENCE book. There is an extensive index. However, for the average windows 95 user, who knows 95 well, this book goes to in depth. It is...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book packed with details, 18 Jun 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Microsoft® Windows NT® Workstation 4.0 Resource Kit (Microsoft Professional Editions) (Paperback)
Before buying, I read the other reviews. The main comment seemed to be "boring, too many details." Well if you're like me and love to know how things really work, this is the book to have. For the first time I have documentation on a number of registry flags and tricks to make my computer perform better. Plus the real reason I bought the book (the CD) is packed with utilities like the C2 security configurator and Microsoft Plus. Definetely a must have if you want to get the most out of NT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for MCSE Training, 6 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Microsoft® Windows NT® Workstation 4.0 Resource Kit (Microsoft Professional Editions) (Paperback)
Although this book dosen't read like a novel, it's still a good book to look up specific facts quickly! It's laid out very nicely in bite size chunks so your not overwhelmed with too much information, just the informatiion you're looking for! I find it a great addition for the NT Workstation Core exams. It's also extremely thorough! This book IS NT Workstation!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good choice for people with need for in-depth knoweledge.., 11 Jan 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Microsoft® Windows NT® Workstation 4.0 Resource Kit (Microsoft Professional Editions) (Paperback)
Well, I saw the other reviews and I was utterly disappointed. This book is SUPPOSED to be technical (it is a PROFESSIONAL edition, one that SHOULD have System Administrators and people who know some stuff in mind). It covers an awful lot of ground with lots of details. The coverage of key topics is exemplary. Any question one might have on WindowsNT will surely be answered in this book (it is not supposed to be a text-book to start reading from page 1 like a fairy-tale; it is a REFERENCE book, one you look-up when you need to). Congrats on the autors!

However, a good point about the book is that it is a TRUE REFFERENCE book. There is an extensive index. However, for the average windows 95 user, who knows 95 well, this book goes to in depth. It is written for the network admin in mind. Reading is very dry. I was only looking for moderate depth coverage of topics. This book sucks.

1.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete, obsolete and overpriced. Get supplement 3., 25 May 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Microsoft® Windows NT® Workstation 4.0 Resource Kit (Microsoft Professional Editions) (Paperback)
The most annoying thing about this title is its references to titles in the NT Server resource kit that are not included. The title has not been updated since the original printing several years ago and the CD utilities are mostly of little use or are full of bugs that are fixed on the supplement disks at more cost. Some of the software bugs are fixed by updates that should be available on the Microsoft web site but could not be downloaded because of errors in the web site links.

4.0 out of 5 stars Concise, factual. Necessary reference., 12 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Microsoft® Windows NT® Workstation 4.0 Resource Kit (Microsoft Professional Editions) (Paperback)
This is not an entertaining book... It's not supposed to be. What it is, is a factual reference on one subject. I found it to be interesting even though it didn't answer all my questions. But then what single book does?

1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of money, 25 Jun 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Microsoft® Windows NT® Workstation 4.0 Resource Kit (Microsoft Professional Editions) (Paperback)
Another insult from Microsloth's Evil Empire! Barely worth the money, badly written and sloppy. I assume, Microsloth is expecting everybody who finds an error to pay for an update of the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not fun, but essential for the NT worksation exam., 14 Sep 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Microsoft® Windows NT® Workstation 4.0 Resource Kit (Microsoft Professional Editions) (Paperback)
The text is dry and technical. Anything in the book is fair game on an MCP exam and therefor makes it a must have for those trying to pass the exam.
