Basic desktop consultant.....not administrator

As an NT4/2000 admin, this has been all I needed to get myself up to speed with XP. This book focuses on key aspects of day to day XP use and administration--you won't find coverage of hardware requirements and installation procedures, nor will you find exhaustive white papers masquerading as psuedo-documentation. I used to hate MS Press offerings, but the pocket consultant series has allowed me leave the 'bibles' and resource kits at home. I keep the OS and Exhange consultants on my desk and have actually started re-reading some of them for pleaure just to keep from forgetting some of the stuff I don't utilize daily on the job. I've even gotten some of my early adopting power users to buy and use this book.
If you're studying for certs or need in depth info for design research/general reference, buy a bible book, resource kit, or cert guide for the minutia and specific testing guidelines. But buy this book too because it's small and lightweight and is like set of XP Cliff notes.

Excellent Undergraduate-Level Stats/Excel Book

This book makes it easy to learn to use excel for statistical analysis. It covers both concepts and how to. I don't agree with negative reviewers who seem to have piled on regarding minor flaws. The book is good.

Not bad, not the best.

Although I have not yet seen a better walkthrough, they could have added a lot more. Let me make this breif...if you need help with something, don't go out and buy the book because that is pretty much all it will help you with- that one thing. Ask your friend for help, or go to Funcoland.com- they have a good but not thourough walkthrough there.
Hope I could help.

Beyond criticism

I prepared for the exam with only this book and I am sure it is enough. Because today (17.05.2002) I passed "Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 Platform" exam with 79% score. This book contains lots of review questions which same as the real questions. And also a hard moch exam. I think if you pass this mock you can pass the real exam. Many thanks to authors. They deserve this.
