this book is very informative and drawn out. it has walk through tutorials and nice pictures. i get more help out of tech Net postings than this book.
answers are posted on the net.
I bought mine for 180.00 at my local community college for my CO235 - Advanced LAN for Windows Server class, and feel ripped off because of the software you need costs 58.00Usd for a grade and the book separately cost 100.00-120.00Usd. I have not found an international book yet.
software is good for 1 yr
