Hughes and Thomas basically accomplish their stated goal "...you will learn basic to complex concepts and rules on the aspects of NetWare 5"(p.xii). As expected from these authors, there's a heavy emphasis on NDS design and implementation. I wanted more comprehensive coverage of Z.E.N., FastTrack web server, and setting up NDPS. This is not an administrator's handbook, nor a test-prep. But if you're a CNA/CNE looking for a reliable, comprehensive overview of NetWare 5, this is it.
The book seems directed at those considering an installation or upgrade. It lacks detailed information on any of the services that come in the box. It is not the detailed CNE's desktop reference that I was looking for. The book give little more information than the online documentation CD from Novell.
Good book but lacks detailed info on Netscape Fast track web server. The converage on NDS is excellent but needed more info on NDPS and Zenworks
