Reference Manuals / books

By sgtk74b ·
I am in charge of creating a technology library for my unit before we get stationed overseas. I have a budget of over 2000 dollars to ensure we have all the books / manuals / study guides to help us do our job better. We will be working with Windows 2000 computers, operating a 2000 server and using Cisco routers. I was told I could purchase certification books as well as any other book either to improve knowledge or help better ourselves while overseas. I am looking for suggestions on which books you believe would be a good buy and help us gain knowledge and get certified when we return from Iraq.

I have a decent knowledge base but my 5 soldiers are beginners who have limited knowledge of troubleshooting / networking.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

O'Reilly Publishing

by TheChas In reply to Reference Manuals / books

In the years I have been working with PCs, I have usually found the best information in books published by O'Reilly Publishing.

Pick up all the appropriate "In a Nutshell" series books.
Look through them, and add from there.

Resource close to home

I agree with Mr. Harag about O'Reilly Publishing, but would also like to point out a book and CD list right here on Tech Republic offering a wide variety of titles that should help you build a sutable library for all levels of expertise.

Good Luck and come home safe
