Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Good Book to read


I read previous books of Davis Chappell and I enjoyed reading this book. This book is an easy read for a developer, yet it explains in clear terms what is .NET. The sidebars and analysis is helpful. I would have liked a little bit more technical treatment of the subject, just like he did with the "Understanding ActiveX and OLE" book.

Best technical resource


According to the three CISSPs I've asked, this book is the key to the kingdom. Written for technical folks by technical folks, it clearly describes the 10 domains. I made this book the center of my study platform.
If you are a sociology major, try another title.

A decent beginner's book


The author has posted errata, and there are only like 5 things, only 1 of which is an actual error. And that error doesn't even cause a "parse" error, just something you have to look hard to find. I gave this book to some of our junior level admins to get them up to speed on our development environment and they flew right through it and know a lot more than they did when they started. the author says over and over where to get help if there is a problem with installation, and how to determine where your errors are if something in your script is not working. but to say this is a bad or confusing book just makes no sense. I'm an IT manager and this book does a very good job of pulling from the three books to give you just what you need to get started. you're not supposed to get this book if you've been using these things for any great amount of time -- it's a beginner's book, it says that, and it is that. and it is a good one!
