I found this disappointing. It may meet its intended goal of preparing someone for the Apple Certified Support Professional Exam, but it is just a lightweight and superficial romp at best. I can't imagine anyone walking away from reading this feeling that they have really gained anything useful.

Definitely not worth the money unless your goal is certification and you just want something to prep you for the test.

Have you check out the Server Essentials 2nd edition? It covers all the new Leopard stuff.

From reading the Amazon reviews, I'd guess that book has the same problems I complained about here.

The idea of "work, then get paid" has been deeply ingrained in our culture by employers who want to limit their risk. Well, I like to limit my risks also. I like to get paid before I do work. (Tony Lawrence)
