This was just what I needed to learn OS/400 - I am a call center duty manager for iSeries and trying to learn the operating system is rather difficult without expensive classes. This book has nice illustrations that go with the labs, of which there are many.
All I needed was basic access to an iSeries to do some of the labs.
The book is a bit dated though
