Sybex Books

By Chouf ·
Just passed my 70-210, I'm on my way to 70-215 (W2K Server) and I'm looking to buy an MCSE pack that would contain all the books I need to get my MCSE.
I already have the TroyTech Study Guide and the Microsoft Press W2K Server. I got some goodcomments from colleagues about the Sybex book and I was wondering what you think about those ones. Are they good ? Is it relevant to buy a whole pack ? ... any other useful advice in fact !

I have got some Sybex books on other topics, which I have found very useful. I got a set of MCSE books, to cover exams 70-210/215/216/217 from New Riders. They are not bad, but I got them for $10 as an introductory offer, so that made it even better.
From my previous experiences of Sbex books, I would suggest that they would be very good.

Trusted publishing line

by generalist In reply to Sybex Books

Sybex is one of the publishing lines I tend to look for when searching for technical material. They appear to produce high quality material on a consistent basis for a reasonable price. I've used them for several years now.

Of course, you do have to tailor what you know with what you need to know. A good book for a beginner or intermediate level person would be trivial and boring to an expert who is looking for a quick or exhaustive reference.

Gotta Love Sybex

by Catadmin In reply to Sybex Books

Sybex is great, especially for the beginner. I have found both the text and the CD (with the book and quiz/test questions) beyond compare when studying for my certs. I would advise setting up a couple of computers at home and going through their exercises. Of course, the CD also has the exercises on them for people who don't have a copy of the W2k Server Eval copy. A copy of W2k Server Eval is easily found, though, by buying Microsoft's big blue 70-218, Managing a 2000 Network. Just make sure the CD is still in the back before you buy it.
