Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Just passed the exam with the help of this book!

I am suprised at some of the comments on this site about how the questions are formatted and presented because I JUST took the exam and the format was exactly the same.
This is a full-figure book, meaning it gives you all the info needed to fully understand the objectives of the test, even if you are new to them. The bullet items at the back of the chapter pinpointed the important items from the chapter for me and then the questions really drove those concepts home.
I did not really like how the questions were necessarily presented in the book OR the test, but I just found out that they both present the questions in the same way, which better prepared me for this monster test.

nice cover

LDAP and LDAP implementation explained in plain English. A big book with as much information as you could possibly need. It makes a handy reference guide or can be read from start-to-finish. It won't make you an LDAP guru overnight, but maybe in a couple of days.

Must have!

As always, this is an excellent reference book. However, I must say that I was VERY disappointed in the removal of the common controls and ole chapters found in the previous edition! I had hoped very much to see updated chapters on common controls and ole.

A fantastic intellectual voyage

Simon Singh has once again amazed me with his ability to cover complex subjects, in relative detail, while maintaining the readers interest. Few writers are ever able to do this - and Singh does it beautifully. After all, who could possibly have imagined a "Math Book" that was so interesting that liberal arts majors would devour it?
For those of us wondering how to protect our privacy, it's a fascinating primer on the battles of the mind that have delivered modern cryptography.
For the rest of us who are merely curious about the ability to cover up secrets, and the ability to uncover them, it's an intriguing story that captivates the imagination.
Bravo Simon. For Pete's sake, don't stop now!
