Microsoft Windows XP Inside Out - Deluxe Edition (second edition)
Ed Bott
0735620431
October 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Ed Bott and Carl Siechert have combined their considerable talents for producing user-level documentation in creating Microsoft Windows XP Inside Out. One of the most carefully researched books on Windows XP to date, this large volume has all the information and procedures most everyday users of the operating system will want. With its nicely formatted how-to instructions, detailed documentation of command-line commands, intelligent explanatory text, and broad scope, this book makes a great reference for a family or business that uses Windows XP extensively. Even the illustrations are more helpful than usual, largely because the publisher has gone to the trouble of annotating many of them with pointers and labels.

Bott and Siechert deal with the most controversial features of Windows XP, notably product activation, in a...

Microsoft Outlook 2000 for Windows for Dummies
Bill Dyszel
0764504711
May 1999
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
The latest release of Microsoft Outlook 2000, Microsoft's tool for managing time, tasks, contacts, and resources at a personal level, runs more smoothly and has more features than any of its predecessors. Microsoft Outlook 2000 for Dummies shows you--without wasting time--how to use this powerful program.

Author Bill Dyszell dedicates much of this book to electronic mail. Though readers get a thorough overview of how to configure Outlook to retrieve e-mail from a mail server on the Internet, the author (perhaps unfairly) assumes that users on a local area network (LAN) have access to an organizational guru to configure their mail for them. Once you get connected, you can count on this book to explain how to filter, sort, store, track, and otherwise use Outlook to get the most out of e-mail. You'll also find explanations...

Book Review
By volume, topics covered, and the authority of the authors, nothing documents Redmond's new operating system quite like Microsoft Windows 2000 Resource Kit.

The kit consists of seven books and a well-organized CD-ROM. Each of the books contains comprehensive information about the respective area that it covers, be it TCP/IP or distributed systems. The kit not only includes essential information but also contains detail and background information for its many subjects in great depth. For example, the book that covers Internet Information Server includes instructions on developing client/server and multitier applications. The Windows 2000 TCP/IP Core Networking Guide also has an outstanding introduction to the core tenets of TCP/IP.

Systems administration manuals have come a long way in terms of usability and...

Hardcover
·
 
Book Review
Mark Minasi is an excellent technical writer and a veteran of many high-quality projects. Mastering Windows 2000 Server, albeit based on a late beta version of its subject (release candidate 2), is the newest in his string of triumphs. With remarkable detail and with something approaching comprehensiveness, Minasi documents Windows 2000 Server capabilities with an eye toward the goals of real-world network administrators and the problems they're likely to encounter.

His style is fun in that it communicates procedures without descending into "choose this, click that" tedium, instead using narrative prose with illustrations to combine practical material with enough background information to promote truer understanding. Occasional tables and bulleted lists, ready for marking, hold commands, options, and other reference...

September 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
One of the best Windows 2000 references yet published, Microsoft Windows 2000 Administrator's Pocket Consultant is a professional-level how-to guide for all versions of Windows 2000. Designed with the mobile expert in mind, the cover of the book has a tough, plastic-coated surface (like that of a playing card) and rounded corners (though it won't quite lie flat without weights). Its contents are similarly hard-boiled. Concepts are explained in expertly written and carefully organized prose, while succinct procedures tell you how to meet requirements and numerous tables list options and their effects. There aren't many screen shots, but that's okay because this is a reference for people who don't need them.

Coverage is wide-ranging and includes everything a power user or system administrator would want to know about the...

Windows XP for Dummies, Second Edition

Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Windows XP for Dummies does a good job in its role as the flagship of the Dummies line, providing Windows novices with a guided introduction to Microsoft's latest and most feature-rich operating system for everyday computer users. Its treatment of computer, Windows, and Internet fundamentals is among the best on the market, and author Andy Rathbone has an appealing way of writing that's simultaneously fun and detail-rich. If you're a Windows novice--meaning you don't know how to undelete a file that's been sent to the Recycle Bin, or what a Web browser is, or what it means to "cut and paste" text--you will get a lot out of Rathbone's work.

Some aspects of this book could be better, such as the part of the networking chapter that calls for an Ethernet hub without noting that a switch, though possibly more expensive, would...

Book Review
You may not be a dummy, but that doesn't mean you were born knowing how to use spreadsheets. Excel 2000 for Windows for Dummies will bring you up to speed on Microsoft's premillennial package, even if you've never used anything like it before.

A great reference for the beginner and the pressed-for-time, this book is organized as a series of chapters that build from the basics of pointing and clicking and figuring out the different parts of the spreadsheet to more advanced topics like Web-based data entry and macros. Visual learners will find much to love as well--there are screen shots galore and plenty of icons to point you to the most salient items quickly.

Written in characteristic Dummies-style--laid-back and humorous--the text is as nonthreatening as can be; even the most diehard computer-phobes will find...

Book Description
How This Book Came to Life align="left">In the late summer of 2003, although in the sands of time it seems a lifetime away on another planet in a parallel universe, the warmth of the late afternoon sun was beaming down on Bill and me, while we sat in the gardens of a hotel near the campus of the Microsoft UK headquarters. We'd just given a number of successful presentations at a VBUG developer's conference, and we were both "high" on the post-conference euphoria. One of the sessions I had presented was on Reporting Services for Yukon--that's SQL Server 2005, but at that stage it was still in alpha builds. The Reporting Services session had been well received, and, as always when Reporting Services is first shown to developers, there was a noisy and palpable interest from the developer community, so many...
