Looking forward to another book by Jeffrey!

I was struck by the language analogy that he gave in the introduction. It was then, that I knew, that I would end up buying this book and put an end to this reg. expr. mystery once and for all! O'Reilly has the reputation of publishing very technical, to-the-point books and authors like Jeffrey make it come true. I am really looking forward to another book on some other arcane topic by him

Title: Microsoft Windows XP Registry Guide
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: Jerry Honeycutt, Jerry Honeycutt
Rating: 2/5
Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5

Perhaps I expected too much from this book. I personally skimmed over it before I ordered it from Amazon.com and thought it would fit the bill explaining the registry and how it works.
It did just that but on an advanced level. If you are like me, not advanced in XP or the registry, then you will be disappointed with this book. I did get much out of it but only after researching many topics like: scripts, INF files, and more. It�s unfortunate for me that much of Windows XP Registry Guide will wither in the wind and I will have to purchase a similar book more on my level of expertise.
My review is not to condemn this book but only point out it�s for the more advanced computer addict.
I hope this review will help someone.

My first good review...

This is an excellent book which is well written with lots of good examples and tests. I passed the exam 48/57. Make sure you check the ERRATA for the book and it does help to try some of the practise tests that are out there in market.
