Not the best...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Windows Server 2008 For Dummies (Paperback)
I bought this book in preparation for trying to set up a server for a small company. I vaguely remembered the "for dummies" series being approachable so that was what I bought.
The book is packed with jargon, admittedly it explains what it means, but that doesn't really help you understand what it actually does on a practical level! The book contains the really easy stuff like, "When you install make sure you have your windows server 2008 DVD at hand.." but neglects to mention the mind boggling multitude of versions of windows server, if there is a 32 bit version, or even what a CAL is! The index is similarly rather limited.
Perhaps this book might come in useful when the system is up and running, but then it will be no easy job cutting through all the jargon to figure out what its actually trying to tell me! So I'm on the look out for another book on this matter!
