HASH(0x9e80f0a8) out of 5 stars Ok, but could be better Feb. 20 2010

Verified Purchase
I'm glad that I made the purchase of this little ebook, but the fact is most of the contents can be found on the web or in other books. For example Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Administration with Windows PowerShell (Wrox Programmer to Programmer) is far more comprehensive. Howerver I wanted a quick start guide that I could place on my Kindel and this achived the purpose, though as another reviewer noted 30 pages is quite small for $7. It's virtually a 4 part blog post.

But it comes down to this: Did I learn $7.00 worth of information from it? In my opinion I did.

Now I would like to see a similar book for PowerShell and SharePoint. I do a lot of administration tasks on my company's WSS site via PowerShell (querying data from SQL Server and placing it in lists to use a Chart Part to draw graphs, etc). I think I might learn some new tips from a little book like this.

HASH(0x9f10e338) out of 5 stars Fairly small May 28 2009

Fairly small at 30 pages for seven bucks. Will at least get you started. I wish I had put this money toward a more comprehensive book. Also, where's the "downloadable Zip archive"?.
