949 pages 1st edition (January 15, 2000)
Although it's a bulky and comprehensive tome--weighing in at just under a thousand pages--this is not a book for the beginning Microsoft Windows 2000 student--like other books in the Exam Notes series, the MCSE Accelerated Windows 2000 Exam Notes is intended for the working professional who has a working knowledge of Windows 2000, and needs an overview of what's likely to come up on the exam. If you're that kind of person, this book does a very admirable job--condensing an entirely new OS down into discrete, easily read segments. And, for 20 bucks, there's scarcely a better value out there. But, if you're getting the bulk of your Windows 2000 expertise from book learning, be wary of this one.
