Title: MCDST Exams (Exams 70-271 and 70-272)
Publisher: Charles River Media
Authors: Timothy L. Warner
Rating: 2/5
Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5
Sample Questions too confusing

The Book is not bad, in general. The sample questions are very confusing because the author says the the correct answer for a given question is "A". Then right under that, when he explains why "A" is the correct answer he contadicts himself explaining that "C" is the right answer. I don't know... maybe is not the author's fault, maybe the editor was playing solitaire while correcting the book. Bottom line is, if your NEW to certification, this book is going to bring you problems, confusing you a lot.

Title: The Pragmatic Programmer: From Journeyman to Master
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional
Authors: Andrew Hunt, David Thomas
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A classic!

I want to give a resounding thank you and "thumbs up" to Andrew Hunt and David Thomas. The Pragmatic Programmer is absolutely great. What a terrific find! I cannot recommend this book highly enough!
I was required to read this for a graduate school course, and quite honestly I was a little skeptical about reading a book written by programmers. I am not a programmer, but must communicate with "them" in building systems. I will use this book as reference constantly, and have already recommended it to others.
This book cuts through all the language barriers that non-programmers and programmers have and presents information in a very readable format.
I appreciate the witty humor combined with straightforward explanations.
Bravo and thank you!

Title: Windows NT Shell Scripting
Publisher: Pearson Education
Authors: Timothy Hill
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
It's the place to look to first...

This book is excelent. I will not go into details about the material covered as that has been already done. I will, however, comment on Hills' writing style. He is very to the point. There is little or no fluff or filler. The reader will not put the book down feeling as though somthing was missed. I appreciate the fact that the material was covered in depth in approximately 300 pages (300 small pages). Some authors would have turned a book on this subject into "The Complete Guide to NT Scripting Mastered and Unleashed. 1004 pages." I'm glad that was not the case.....Need a book on scripting? Get this book!

Would be great if it had examples

I would have loved this book, except there are no exercises, and the standard Sam's "BUG BUSTERS" are missing as well.
