Great reference! Apr 14, 2008
I am an experienced SMS Administrator. While I have attended multiple training courses and read other books, this one is a very detailed and complete. I would recommend this to any SMS Administrator.
Excellent book Jun 27, 2007
As a new SMS Administrator I had lots of questions about the processes of SMS, even after taking both MS classes. This book covered all my questions and all the software delivery process flows along with excellent help with troubleshooting failures. This is my new SMS bible and is my constant companion.
A must have! Mar 17, 2007
Like all technical manuals, this author goes through the steps on how to do this or that. As you read on however you will notice a difference that only years of experience will bring to a subject. There are many helpful notes covering useful information. Don't stop reading after you figured out how to accomplish a task, the next page could save you a good deal of time.
Great Dec 21, 2006
Another great addition to the recently published books and guides available for the SMS 2003 admin. I especially appreciated the care taken in explaining the importance of planning for and implementing an adequate infrastructure.
