NICE


Not only is this book fun to read, but it's very easy and helpful in step by step instructions. Very understandable and has a personality of it's own. Thanx Scott Kelby & crew. I'm using this book a ton! And learning a ton! Now if I could just remember it all... ;-)

Title: Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server Administrator's Pocket Consultant (IT-Administrator's Companion)
Publisher: Microsoft Press

Extremely Valuable


I had a need to quickly resolve a problem with Exchange 2000 Server, having never worked with it before. This book was an excellent resource for that purpose. Not because it gave me the exact answer I needed (which I doubt many books would do) but because it clearly and concisely explained what you can do with Exchange 2000 Server and how to do it. It showed how to do things properly and from that it was fairly easy to deduce what was wrong.
Because the book is well structured (no excess verbage, no "chattiness") it's easy to read, clear and to the point. It gets to the point and stays on target.
All in all an excellent reference you'll use over and over and, I think, an excellent place to start learning Exchange 2000 Server. I find that this book tells what Exchange 2000 Server can do and how to do it. With that knowledge I think you'll be better grounded if and when you go for more in depth understanding of architecture and the like. After this book, if you want more in depth information you can move on to other (bigger) books but I think you'll get the biggest bang for the buck from this one..

Title: Windows NT Shell Scripting

Excellent, superb, concise, indispensable


As an NT Administrator, I cannot say enough good things about this book. I searched long and hard for a definitive command reference of the NT command shell. This book is it. Very well organized. Good for learning, great for reference.
One caveat: In describing the ECHO command, Mr. Hill says, "The ECHO command cannot be used to echo an empty line." He suggests placing an (invisible) TAB character on the line. Apparently he is not aware of the (very old) DOS trick of using 'ECHO.' (no space between ECHO and the period) to force a blank line.
