Right on the money for the A+ Exams

This book was the only one I used to prepare for the A+ exams, which I passed without problems. The book is well-organized and to the point and gave me just the topics I needed and just enough information on each for the tests. The icons focused my last minute studies and the cheat sheet was really helpful. I recommend this book to anyone preparing to take the A+ exams, experienced or not.

A MUST-HAVE for people learning .NET Technology

I needed to learn the .NET architecture and programming languages. I wanted to learn about the .NET architecture before learning the languages, so I read this book first. As the title in my review states, this is a MUST HAVE book for people learning .NET.
This book explains how the .NET architecture works in a simple to understand manner. An added feature of this book is the "extra asides" in each chapter discussing topics that are important to IT professionals, such as "Java Bytecode versus MSIL", "Why Enterprise Servers are not .NET", and "Making .NET Cross-platform". This is the kind of information an IT professional needs when one is trying to sell a .NET solution to an IT manager or executive whose only exposure to technology is what s/he saw on "Tech TV". It is also the kind of information that assists the IT professional who works on other platforms/languages (mainly Java programmers) with understanding .NET in relation to what one does.
Also, I believe that if a programmer/software engineer new to .NET understands the architecture, then the programmer/software engineer will have an easier time with learning and using the .NET languages (Well, I find that to be true in my case). This book will give the new .NET developer or engineer a good foundation to allow one to make informed decisions when designing a .NET application.
As an IT professional and adjunct university professor, I would highly recommend this book to IT professionals learning .NET, and I would highly recommend this book as a textbook to be used in a school teaching .NET in their curriculum.
