PLAN, INSTALL, CONFIGURE, SECURE, OPTIMIZE AND TROUBLESHOOT! Citrix MetaFrame is the de facto standard for hosting and delivering applications from Windows-based servers. Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server 3.0 is optimized for performance under Windows Server 2003, particularly Terminal Services. This book covers all the topics needed to plan, design, and implement a reliable, scalable server-based computing solution in a Citrix/Windows 2003 environment. Whether you are building thin client environments for disaster recovery purposes or rolling Citrix MetaFrame out as the network model for the day-to-day activities of the company, you will find this book to be a great resource.

Reviews - What do customers think about Deploying Citrix Metaframe Presentation Server 3.0: With Windows Server 2003 Terminal Services?

Mainly fluff here  Mar 14, 2006
I was very disappointed in this book, as there really isn't much detail. The entire book basically walks you through installing MPS and ICA Clients WITH THE DEFAULT SETTINGS!!! In short, it is mainly just screenshot after screenshot of default settings and "Click Next to Continue".

Even the chapter on "Configuring Policies" is mainly just screenshots with some text below each one repeating what is displayed in the screen capture.

Definitely not worth the price; spend your money elsewhere.

Also, one of the 5 star reviews is by ONE OF THE AUTHORS (and I would bet that the other is a friend of one of the authors) therefore that is the reason the the number of stars is as high as it is.
Lots of fluff  Aug 18, 2005
This was not what I expected. So far I have read 400 pages and have not gained very much. There is a lot of procedures on how to install each component. Do we really need screen shots of every license agreement? Lots of filler here... If you're looking for something with technical detail, then look for a different book. Was not worth the money.
Excellent Citrix Metaframe PS 3.0 Deployment book  May 17, 2005
This book provides an excellent source for deploying MFPS 3.0. It covers all the basics required for a successful deployment including: new Win 2003 TS features, scaling, migrations, client devices, client deployment, secured connectivity and secured environments. As a veteran of Citrix since WinFrame, I can honestly say that this book will prove useful for all skill levels.
Content is based on real-world issues  May 4, 2005
As one of the authors I now for a fact that much of this book was taken from first-hand experience with real-world issues resolved in Citrix environments I have worked in. Many factors play a part in designing and deploying a sound MetaFrame infrastructure that has capacity to support all types of end-users. This book covers as much of what you need to know that any single book can.
