The complement!


A formidable literature. It is the ideal complement to the book Applied Cryptography. In the personal thing, the chapter three consider it excellent, it is direct without a lot of hesitation, and it is essential to understand the reality that surrounds us. The chapters six seven the description of Bruce Schneier shares it in almost its entirety. The chapters ten, twelve, fourteen and fifteen particularly enable me to understand concepts that technically is difficult to explain with humanistic character; I mention this for the technical formation that I acquired in my country. In summary a very good book and the perfect complement for any technical book in applied cryptography.

Excellent resource for essential PC knowledge.


Thanks Ron, your book gave me quick answers and insight into what to expect on the A+ exams. Along with one other resource manual and a practice test off the Internet, I crammed for a mere 3 weeks and am now A+ certified. Thanks again.

Marine Proof!!


When I was told I would have to revamp our Company's Web page I was completely illiterate when it came to HTML. With this book as my ONLY reference I was able to create a great looking and functional web page complete with image maps, mouse-overs, frames, and tables. I also gained a basic understanding of animation and simple java-script. I would definitely recomend this book to anyone interested in getting started in HTML.

Superb Explanations on Key Technologies


This book will work for even a novice, who knows nothing of scripting. That is perhaps why the book is so thick, as it is chalk full of valuable explanations. I find the material and organization to be very excellent. For the more advanced users, those with perhaps UNIX scripting, perl, development, etc. background, they can quickly skim through introductory material and get on to the more advanced topics, such as ADSI and WMI.

This book has real world practical and immediately useful material for WSH, ADSI, and WMI. The WSH does have a lot of coverage on the Internet and published books, but for trickier technologies like WMI and ADSI, I find this book's well written explanations and overall coverage most invaluable. I liked for instance that in Active Directory coverage using ADSI, there was intuitive coverage of scripting the various providers (LDAP, GC, WinNT) and coverage of using ADO to get at Active Directory info. through either LDAP or SQL queries.

Generally speaking, there are some areas of Windows where certain functionality and features are not accessible through the command-line or GUI, one can get at it through scripting with material presented in this book. There are other areas, where it can be tedious to do certain tasks through the GUI on several desktops, such as printer setup, inventory of hardware in a company, or account maintenence; I was able to automate these chores through choice tidbits found in the book.

Overall, I find this book imensely useful, especially for administrative chores. And for novices wanting to get into scripting, this is indeed THE book.
