Title: Mastering Windows 2000 Server

Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5

I agree with Saleh: this book tries to be everything to all people. Some parts are good, but some huge mistakes (sysdiff doesn't exist anymore in Windows 2000 !!). I can't believe why so many people rate this book with 5 stars. The book is written by four authors and this shows in writing style (inconsistent) and the level of difficulty. Some chapters are aimed at beginners and some at experts. It's not a bad book, but it's not nearly as good as the NT4 edition by Minasi.

Excellent book, worth the price

I had been looking for a C# book which also took care of teaching to exploit all the benefits of the .Net framework. I had stumbled with some books that were too inclined to either the language itself or the .net framework, but this book keeps a good balance between these two topics.
I purchased Professional C# from Wrox, but I saw too many typos in the text and even worse in the code!, so I went ahead and returned it later. I decided to spend some time at the bookstore comparing books and after much deliberation this one won me. I think it was a little bit expensive but it was worth it since it includes clear explanations, visual representation of what the samples do and how they work and best of all, it covers may topics I was interested in like XML, SOAP, Web Services, ASP.NET, etc.
I even liked the two color schema (red and black) in which it is printed.
