5-0 out of 5 stars Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) Review Manual
This review manual reiterates the valuable information/education from the nurse educator program.I believe by utilizing the testing blueprint format (found in this manual), nurse educators can be successful in becoming certified.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best for experienced nurse educators or educator tracked MSNs
Although I agree with another reviewers comments regarding the practice tests (both chapter and comprehensive), I already assumed this would be the case as most texts have inadequate test banks (evidence-based, not just my opinion). Nevertheless, you would expect better from some of the nation's best nurse educators.

Overall, the text presented everything I needed to focus on for CNE prep. I took and passed the exam last Friday and there were only two questions which used material not covered in the review guide. If I had not been in an MSN educator track, I probably would have felt more confident reading Billings and Halstead, Bastable, and Oermann and Gaberson - but I teach for a living! Who has that kind of time? So, I would recommend this book for educators who are short on time, but know their way around a classroom, in general.

In fact, I'm buying two more copies and donating them to my program to help others pass the CNE.

5-0 out of 5 stars Preparing for the CNE exam
This book does cover all aspects of preparation for the CNE exam. It is also helpful to nursing instructors everywhere. I enjoy the short chapters and the easy to read format.

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed with practice questions
I am happy to say I passed the CNE exam, but I felt less confident about taking the exam after I completed the Comprehensive Practice Questions.The questions included two on Berwick and change.I was surprised that out of 55 questions 2 would be based on Berwick.Overall I found many of the questions to be knowledge based, such as what is the third step in Roger's five steps in the process of diffusion of innovation.This made me worry that I did not know enough specific facts from the writings of specific authors.Both the unit practice test questions and the comprehensive questions included concepts that I was unable to locate in the text of the book.In the comprehensive practice, I found some rationale for answers to be confusing.I suspected there was an error in the question/answer/rationale.One of the reasons I bought the book was for the practice questions. Now that the test is behind me, I believe that many of the practice questions provide an inaccurate view of the actual exam.

If you do not like material presented in an outline/bullet fashion, you may not like the text of the book. I know I wish the text included more examples and not simply bullet points. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars it should get a negative rating
This is the worst networking book I have ever read. There is nothingworthwhile in the book. In fact the authors best advice is to go and takethe Novell certified courses. If I had the time to do that I wouldn't havebought the book!

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of time and money
I'm amazed at the glowing reviews I've read on this page. This book was a complete waste of my time. It offers no test preparation whatsoever, so prospective CNEs should shop elsewhere. The first 8 chapters of the bookare space-wasting drivel that have nothing to do with learning this OS orpreparing for these tests. The chapters that claim to cover specific testsinstead seem to cover the more obscure facets of NetWare.I have passed 4of the 6 tests needed to become a CNE and I have done so without anyassistance from this book. I suggest people read the CNE Study Guide forNetWare 5 by David James Clarke which is admittedly very corny and readslike an advertisement for Novell at times but is still packed with way moreusable information than this book has. This book was a big disappointment.

5-0 out of 5 stars Now this is why I review books.
The only thing in computer that remains constant is the fact that nothing remains constant. Novell's latest NetWare 5 is the perfect example. The changes for this operating system show how everyone is getting smarter andpassing the certification exams get harder. Where do you turn forhelp?

John Paul Mueller has put together a book that is called All-In-Oneand the name says it all. This book covers the Netware 5 CNA and CNEobjectives with clarity, detail and subject knowledge like no other book onthe market today.

In over 850 pages you'll also get information onNetware 3 and Netware 4 test objectives. Mueller makes easy work of passingand you'll find more information packed into the pages, giving one of themost complete editions going today.

Included is a cd-rom with studyquestions and fun test that I really enjoyed. Also there is "jeopardy"style game without Alex, this makes the learning process easier and morebooks should be using this method of training. For those needing to passand those interested in the subject this is your book.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for novices like me!
I picked this book up as a complete novice.All I knew was that the technicians in my deparatment were earning a lot more money than me and I wanted to get in on it.I had tried another book, but it was way too complex, so I picked up this book thinking it would be more of the same. Was I ever surprised.This one explains networking in terms that theaverage person can underderstand.

This is also the only book that talksto the CNA as well as the CNE.I have no desired to become a CNE rightnow, but I feel this book will be equally helpful if I decide to become aCNE later.

The first part of the book was the most helpful when I gotstarted because it provided useful tips on where to get funding and how tobuild a case for certification with my company.I also found the bookhelpful after I got my certification because it helped me figure out whatto do next.

The hand's on tutorials were the most useful part of thestudy section of the book for me.Once I got finished with the hands ontutorials, all I needed was a little practice to pass the exam (somethingthe author suggests that you do).The questions were helpful, but didn'treally reflect what Novell asked me on the test.I felt they helped meprepare for the exam, but I would have preferred questions that looked likethe questions on the exam.The games are fun, but not very useful.Thesections on what to do for further study were very good, but didn't go farenough.I got lost a few times.Hopefully the author will make thissection longer the next time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful!
I don't like exam guides that pretend to give you all of the answers because they normally give me a false feeling of security that always disappoints on test day.I found this book didn't give me that false senseof security.Instead, it provided me with exercises that helped meactually learn the material that I needed to know in order to pass theexam.The result?Not only did I pass the exam with flying colors, but Ifeel that I really know the material now.That's what really counts.

Thehighlight of the book for me was the hands-on exercises.I showed them toa friend who said they were similar to those provided in the course.So, Ifigure that I saved a lot by buying this book.

The questions and fun testwere very helpful as well.However, as the author pointed out, theyweren't the same questions that I received during the test.All that theywere designed to do is help me think through the kinds of questions that Imight see on the exam.

The puzzles and games were a bit weak, but fun.Idon't feel I learned everything that I could have from them if the authorhad made them a little more focussed.Still, I learned something from themand in a different way from other parts of the book.

I also learned quitea bit from the first part of the book.For example, I used the informationto get a raise out of my boss after I completed my CNE.The raise alonewas worth the purchase price of the book.

John was also very helpful whenI contacted him via email.He has a great deal more knowledge than appearsin the book.The only dissappointment with author support was his Website, which is a joke right now.Still you can't judge the book by theauthor's Web site, which is why I gave this book five stars. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Networking Technologies exam made easy!
Most of the computer books I have reviewed are in 4 categories, PCs, CompTIA certifications, Microsoft Certification or Cisco Routers. This is the first Novell book I have reviewed and I think Novell NetworkingTechnologies has never been covered better.

Passing any exam is adifficult task, so when you have an opportunity to get some help, and thisbook will be a major help, you need to take it. The authors cover the examobjective is detail and the information is first rate.

The 500 plus pagebook covers networks. Media, hardware, standards, models, protocols, OSImodel, protocol suites and network management. There is a practice test atthe end of each chapter and appendicles that cover a variety of topicsyou'll need to know about.

The included cd-rom is a great addition to thebook, with tutorials, quiz software, and practice CNE exams and so muchmore. If you're serious about becoming a CNE, than do yourself a favor andget a copy of this book. Remember the first step is always the hardest.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK for general reference, not adequate for CNE test
I bought this book in preparation for the CNE test, and found that it was not as useful as I had hoped.My main criticism of the book was the totally inadequate index.When studying for the CNE, one wants to be ableto reference specific items such as acronyms quickly, and this is almostimpossible with the index provided.The book claims to be geared towardstudying for the CNE test, but many concepts covered in great detail in thebook are not covered by the test.As a backup reference, the book isadequate, but not as a stand alone guide, in my humble opinion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best buy!!!
This is the best exam preparation book I had ever came across. I wouldadvice those preparing for CNE exams to have it and you will definitelyhave no problem passing. Good Luck !!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Somewhat useful but incomplete
I purchased this book for self study in preparation for the Novell exam for Networking Technologies (050-147).Although advertised as a "complete" guide to passing the exam, I found that it lacked some information and was confusing about other information.Even though most of the information needed was in the book, it was arranged in a different way than Novell presents it in their official courses. The editing was the worst feature of this book.With better editing, it probably would have been a very adequate book.However, much of the content appeared to have been a free form discourse, often changing subjects or concepts in the same paragraph.As with many other books, there were actual factual errors, but none that would cause irreparable harm. The book also gives too much information in some places.For example, it goes into detail about the makup of the frame types for different protocols.This information may be interesting but is not needed for the Novell exam. Novell's CNE Study Guide for Core Technologies written by David Clark is a much better reference for preparing for the exam.In addition, it also covers material for the Service and Support exam. On the plus side, the tables listing specific points about concepts were helpful.I ended up using this book as a backup reference to clarify some concepts and add to information from other sources.However, I don't consider this book a stand alone source for exam preparation. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent book for those in a hurry!
You really need this book on your shelf.This book is packed with really useful information in an easy to read format.I found that the book's organization makes that information easy to find.The authors don't spend a lot of time telling you things that are nice to know, but don't fix problems.They tell you what types of problems you'll see, solutions to fix them, and how to avoid the problem in the future.This has been one of the better administrative tool purchases I've made.

5-0 out of 5 stars An outstanding performance and tuning reference!
When I first started working with Windows 2000, I found Microsoft'sdocumentation difficult to use, problem specific, and hard to understand. This book helped me get to the root of the performance problems with myserver in a reasonably short time.I found all of the information providedby the authors was right on the mark and that unlike other books I've read,this one didn't assume I was some type of networking guru.This book isgreat because it covers both older and state-of-the-art network technology. I was really happy to find detailed information on fiber optics and SANs. I suppose that if you're already a networking guru that some of thisinformation might fall into the common sense category, but for the me thebook is indispensible.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for Power Users & Everyone Else
The old saying "a chain is only as strong as its weakest link" isespecially true of servers. If you've got bottlenecks, you're not gettingthe performance you should. Whether you're working with LANs, WANs or theInternet, you'll find lots of solid advice in this excellent book. If youwant to improve the performance of a Windows 2000 system (and whodoesn't?), this is the book for you. You'll learn to monitor, diagnose,manage, tweak, optimize, fine-tune and, in general, make the most ofWindows 2000. These authors know what they're talking about! I had thepleasure of co-authoring a book last year with John Paul Mueller and I cantell you first hand how hard he works to research and write accurate,understandable books.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good basic reference tool
This is a good basic performance management reference tool.The emphasisis on providing info on basic performance monitoring techniques - should beuseful!

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible
Looking at the table of contents, I thought this book would teach me how to interpret the counters in PerfMon to find a trouble spot.After reading 120 pages of this book I realized it had nothing to do with what Iexpected.The authors are masters of the obvious, and any networkadministrator with a bit of experience and common sense could have writtenthis book.I have read many books by MSPress in the past and have foundthat for the most part are well written, I was sorely disappointed withthis one.If you are a beginning network administrator and need to learnwhere bottlenecks occur, this book may be for you.For those of you whoare more advanced, be warned. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed with this Title
As with every other IT professional I know, I have difficulty finding the time to read every technical book that I would like, and have a fast growing backlog of material to read. Because of this, I expect the material I read to be succinct and on topic. I had a need to obtain my CNE credential due to its relevance to my present job assignment, and since this is Novell's official study guide, I opted to use this book for study... Needless to say, I was disappointed.

While providing bare minimal coverage of each certification objective, I found that the book could probably be reduced by 1/2 and be just as effective. Scattered throughout the book are brainteasers that have absolutely no relevance to the study material. Additionally there is a long dissertation on the author's fictitious organization ACME and its business practices that I doubt anyone who has purchased this book has even thought of reading. Finally each chapter has lead-in and summary paragraphs with commentary that made me feel embarrassed for the author.

Please Mr. Clarke, leave the commentary, brainteasers and other non-essentials out of your study guides. I appreciate you trying to make these topics interesting, but I feel there are better ways.

4-0 out of 5 stars eDirectory section is the hardest
Novell continues to update and expand its network management software, and this book reflects the latest 2004-5 version, Netware 6. It is aimed primarily at those sysadmins who, for professional reasons, need to obtain a Novell certification. This being Version 6, you can see in the bulk of the book that Novell has built out a tremendous amount of material.

Clarke divides the book into several parts. The first describes an installation and maintenance of Version 6, assuming that you have no earlier versions installed. Another part of his book covers what he terms more advanced management issues. One of these being the migration from Versions 4 or 5. A practical consideration in the marketplace. So the exam requires this knowledge.

But perhaps the most interesting and difficult section is that on eDirectory design and implementation. It talks about the layout of an entire network, and how to distribute resources in it, in a robust fashion. As well as guarding against attacks. You may find this section to have far more subjective issues than the earlier sections. Yet, arguably, this is where you can develop the most expert knowledge and increase your value. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Clinical Teaching Strategies in Nursing
Clinical Teaching Strategies in Nursing by Kathleen B. Gaberson and Marilyn H. Oermann
This book was developed to examine concepts of clinical teaching but is helpful for teaching in general. The first three chapters are about a philosophy and outcomes of clinical teaching and preparing for clinical learning activities. The next three chapters are about models and processes of clinical teaching and the ethical and legal issues in clinical teaching. The last nine chapters are about teaching strategies including learning assignments, self-directed learning activities, learning laboratories, simulations, games, case method, case study, grand rounds, conferences, discussions, written assignments, use of preceptors, and clinical teaching in diverse settings. Discussions of multimedia, computer-assisted instruction, critical thinking, journals, concept maps, portfolios, contracts, global and population based settings. The authors believe that there are essential and enriched curricula. This is a scholarly and practical book that is well written and well organized. Chapters have section headings, tables, bulleted content, summaries, and list of references. My students have indicated that this book was especially helpful to them. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The book that opened Certification to the masses
I read this book three years ago and found it enjoyable (he does have a weird sense of humor)and it prepaired me to take 5 Novell exams without attending one class.I cheated and got the course material for 4.1Admin....Today I just finished my recert for NetWare 5 for CNE and CNAand used his newer books for Admin and Advanced Admin.

This book that Iread 3 years ago has led me to all my other certifications and a to greatcareer.I just wish he'd write a book to deal with the CCIE Labexam....

2-0 out of 5 stars So annoying I took it back and got a refund.
I found the "humor" in this book so annoying that in the end I took the book back to the store I bought it from, got a refund, and ordered a Sybex title from Amazon instead. Also considering that most people who buy this title probably do so to study for their CNE, it might be an idea to organize it by exam subject matter rather than just jumble it all together.

2-0 out of 5 stars A confusing maze with far too much irrelevant chatter
While this book contains most of the information one needs it's hard to get through the confusing maze of silly stories and irrelevant chatter to find what you are looking for.as a double MCNE with a teaching background, I have managed to get some 20 people through their CNE training using this book, not because it's the best or even good, but because up until recently there was no alternative. I am desperately looking to replace it as a reference text.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too much filler. Inadequate content.
The book contains far too much filler.Much of the humor is juvenile at best.Worse, the book fails to cover in sufficient depth information necessary to pass some of the CNE tests.As one of the most expensive books of its kind, I would expect better from Novell Press.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great book if all you want is bizarre humor
Too much cute humor. The book could have been half as thick if the poor attempts at humor were edited out. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars I'm so frustrated from this book!
I'm ready to pull my hair out!This book probably has most of the info you'll need, but, as other reviewers have commented, it is buried under a load of garbage.Worse than that, when the author does try to provideinformation directly, he is often unclear and repetitive.His organizationof the subtopics is poor, too. Unfortunately, there are very few thirdparty study guides out there for NetWare 5. Books like this can actuallymake you learn to not like NetWare itself.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good... Cut some fluff and receive 5 stars
For those who have read "Novell's CNA Study Guide for NetWare 5", you will be familiar with David Clarke's style.All the necessary material is covered, but extra fluff is inevitable.As with the CNA book,the author uses a fantacy corporation named ACME to illustate his points. The company is made up of heros from earth's past (King Aurther, AbrahamLincoln, etc...) that are the key players for each division/department. Using an example for illustrative purposes makes since, but I think Mr.Clarke goes too far.My advice to Mr. Clarke is keep writing good studyguides, but trim out some of the non-sence.

On the whole the book is verygood and I recommend it.You may end up doing more reading than you hadplanned, but you will learn the material.If you are preparing for CNEexams, experience definitely helps.Do the labs and practice exams.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent tool, a great place to start for CNE hopefuls.
Certification is not easy.I have been using David James Clarke's CNE Study Guide since v3.12. I still use it for reference.This guide is ga great tool, it is well organized, and the puzzles, jokes and quotes helpkeep your mind moving. (Lets face it, alot of the information you have tomemorize is not interesting.)It is presented in the English we use on adaily basis, not in technobabble that you have to decode while you read. With the flood of computer books, none is perfect, but this one is the mostcomplete I've seen.Start with this, but don't expect any single book tomake you a CNE or MCSE, it takes more than reading.

There is no singlesource of all information.A great deal is opinion and experience.If youcan't learn from a book with this much information, you might want tore-examine your study habits.The problem might not be the book.

Thanksto Mr. Clarke for his help in my success...

1-0 out of 5 stars A book for those NOT wanting to become a CNA
I must say that this is easily one of the worst books I have ever read.It contains jokes, a very stupid story about setting up a Novell Network to save the world, and miles of other garbage that you must shovel out of the way in order to find any facts.The sample test at the end was not onlypoorly made and unrepresentative of Novell's test, but it also containsmany errors, giving you incorrect answers to some questions.Please, takemy advice and buy another CNA preparation book.

1-0 out of 5 stars 1 star too many
The nicest thing I can say about this book is that it contains a copy of an NSC Pro CD (and even that is 12 months out of date) however as a study guide it is next to useless. God knows why the author feels that someone wanting to gain a technical accreditation has the time or inclination towade through all of the puerile filler this book contains. It addsabsolutely nothing save to provide a distraction from the content that isthe real reason anyone would want to make the purchase. Most of theinformation is there, but it is like looking for a diamond needle in anodourous haystack, it's too hard to find and you give up looking.

Saveyourself time and frustration and work from the "Exam Cram"series instead, which fly in the face of Clarke convention and actuallyprovide concise, accurate, useful technical information.

To add insultto injury the much ballyhood "Clarke Tests" are a poor exampreparation, using convoluted and at times irrelevant questions in a clumsyformat. If you are after real exam preparation, check out "ExamEssentials" (certify.com)which are infinitely more representative ofthe real thing.

3-0 out of 5 stars Uneven
I used this book and the full CNE Study Guide as my primary sources to study for these two CNE exams. I found the Network Technologies section to be very good. It contained everything I needed to know, and a very few things I didn't, to pass the test comfortably. Unfortunately I cannot say the same for the Service and Support section. It covered all the topics, but in nowhere near enough detail. I passed that test, but only barely, and I believe I passed it based more on luck and personal experience than based on the material in this book. You can rely on this book for the Net Tech test, provided you memorize all the information which is very densely packed, but for the S&S test you will be much better off getting additional material.

5-0 out of 5 stars As good as the other books in the series
I used this book once again for the Service and Support test passed reading only this book.This series is designed to be like a review but it does a good job of giving you enough to pass the tests on their own.It does the job of the main study guide from the same author but without all of the bull that he puts into the other book.I actully passed this test and Zenworks the same day and I am now a CNE. I know it is hard to believe me with this claim but it is true. Thank you Mr. Clarke IV, you did a good job with this series.

Thank You


5-0 out of 5 stars good study notes - covers exam material
I'm not sure what the problem was with "A reader from San Antonio, Tx". I found this book to be a great help to both the network & the support exams. You *must* remember that it's designed to augment full course material (novell white book or the Novell Study Set - ISBN: 076454554X i think) - it is NOT for study on its own.

It fulfills this role well. I've used other Clarke notes before (CNA) and I intend to buy more ... pity there isn't a MCNE set.

2-0 out of 5 stars basic
This book doesn't even come close to what you need to know for the service and support exam. The net tech section is about half and half.Do not rely on this book to pass the S&S exam. Get some good Old, (yes dated, the exam questions are) Novell books on the subject you will be much better off. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for those looking to Update
I used this book for the NetWare 4.x to NetWare 5 Update test. I found it very helpfull for that purpose. I was already proficient in previous versions of NetWare so I can't comment on it from the "newbie" perspective. For those looking to update, this book with a package from SelfTest Software will make a good combo.

4-0 out of 5 stars Well-written and easy to understand
This book is a great explanation of Netware. It's the best of the printed materials I've seen on the topic (Novell's own study kit book is horrible by comparison). I just passed the CNA exam, and felt well-prepared, though I agree with other reviewers that you should always use more than one study aid. The one weakness of this book is that the questions at the end of the chapters are not much like the actual test, though in all fairness, it would be impossible to simulate the test in a written format. I also used Self Test Software's exam simulation, which was awesome--just like the real thing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Never use just 1 source
Although I believe Sybex sells good quality books, I would like to issue a little word of advice.Never use just one source when going for a certification.For my CCNA certification I used both the CCNA Sybex book, and I was in the Cisco Networking Academy, for My Novell CNA certification, I used CBT and the Sybex book.No matter if a book is a 5 star book or not, your more likely to learn something if you read it twice from differant sources and cover everything.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a Study Guild
I must agree with the other reviewers. I have used other Sybex book and found them very helpful. This one however.......

If you have ALOT of experincewith 4.11 and/or can set up a 5.0 network in your home, thisMIGHT help. If not, it can cause you to fail the exam.

The book can leaveyou feeling overconfident, like me. I read the chapters, did the studyreview (both in the book and online) and did great with them. Today I tookthe test and FAILED! The book dose not prep you for the type of questionsNovell asks nor the style of Novell testing - that freaked me out more thenanything (it is not like Microsoft) and may have helped in my poorperformance.

The book is a good overview of Netware 5.0, put that is allit is

3-0 out of 5 stars Good overview, but lacks specifics
This book hits the highlights and general topics, but needs more details, especially for a test study guide!More screen shots would be very helpful. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Written for a 9 year-old!
The amount of fluff in this book is rather annoying.(ZEN, InfoBahn, NW5 rules the world, etc. etc. etc.)Clarke, just write about the technical aspects of the NOS and skip the childish attempts to entertain the reader.The people reading this book are already CNE's wanting to update their cert to 5.x...they don't want, nor need your poor attempts at entertainment.Had the fluff been omitted from this book, it would be a nice little 300-350 page study guide (and had a few items not been overlooked).As it is, you find yourself skimming or skipping pages due to the annoying attempts at cuteness, and possibly missing an important detail in the process.Do yourself a favor and either buy another book or purchase CNEQUIZR...you'll learn more from that practice exam than you will from this book....

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK
This is by far THE WORST TECHNICAL BOOK I HAVE EVER READ.The reader isinsulted and treated as a child in some fictional playground where you areexpected to save the world with NW5 - along with the help of Einstein, DaVinci, and King Arthur.The religious zeal with which the author spellsout his vision for the planet is disturbing.Bluuuurgh!

There arenumerous and glaring inacuracies - NW5 is described as "the idealplatform to surf the web".Entire paragraphs are frequently repeated. There is no cohesion to this book and it appears to be a hash together ofother books.Double Bluuurgh!

The presentation of the technical conceptsare not clear, and it is hard to know when to believe the author as thereis constant pressure to "get on board" with Netware."Ifyou build it - they will come"."Start your engines..." "Vroooooom".TRIPLE BLUUUURGH!

This book is a disgustinginsult to Novell Press.Davis James Clarke IV, this is a poor excuse for abook and you have a nerve calling yourself an author.I FART IN YOURGENERAL DIRECTION.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money
This is the worst certification book I have ever read. The author is totally out of touch with his audience. It is written like a beginners book, yet it is supposed to help prepare current CNEs to upgrade to NetWare5. There is nothing positive about this book. Printing it was a disgracefulwaste of trees.

1-0 out of 5 stars Review:Clarke's CNE Update to NW5
Do you remember Johnny Cash's song about a "Boy Named Sue"? That's the best I can say about the #1 bestselling author of NetWare studyguides.If you can put up with the unacceptable number of typos in theinformation sections, the incorrect entry data for the exercises, if youcan spend the time it takes to try all combinations of correct variables,read the help files to do the exercises correctly, then by the end of thisbook, through the mud, the blood, the guts, the beer, you might be a strongenough CNE to pass the test. The exercises on DNS configuration and TheNetscape FastTrack Server are especially lacking in providing the correctentry information.It appears as though no proof reading was done at all,the author's attention was definitely somewhere other than on what he wascomposing.Or an editor chopped it out of something else with no regard tocontinuity.Completing this book has helped me to understand how Novell'sbusiness has declined.This is my first book by Clarke, and the firstNovell Press.There are a lot of other authors and publishers out there totry before I give these two another try.

1-0 out of 5 stars Shame Shame Shame
This book is so full of fluff, it is almost useless. Any existing CNE wanting to upgrade theircertification to NW 5 would do well to stay away from this. The data is presented in such a way as to make it difficult toglean what is important and what is not. A waste of money for the seriouscertification-hound. Shame on Novell for even letting this slop out thedoor. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars This book is too padded with usless quotes!
This book has way too many analogies and usless quotes.Lack of screen shots and step by step instructions. This book could have been half it's size without it's long drawn out analogies!I would recommend buying"USING NetWare 3.12" by Que.A much better book, to the pointand has step by step instructions!

3-0 out of 5 stars More of a CNA guide than CNE guide.
This is an excellent guide to Novell basics and to the material covered on the CNA exam, but after that, it is of dubious value. It covers some of the material on the Advanced Admin and Install exams, but there is precious little on the others. (Actually, I believe this one is only supposed to cover five of the seven exams; the other two are in Mr. Clarke's "Core Technologies" exam.)

The writing style goes from concise to ludicrous; the author goes a little too far in trying to make the material fun. I prefer a little less fun when I'm learning; maybe that's just me!Anyway, if you weed through a lot of the superfluous attempts at humor (and crossword puzzles, believe it or not), there is some good material here.

The CDs aren't bad; I like the fact that some of the questions were fill-in-the-blank, just as some of the CNA/CNE exam questions are.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good book
This book is comprehensive and has quality information.However, I felt that the author stretched the analogies way too far, the tests were not comprehensive or useful (a CROSSWORD PUZZLE? sheesh), and the testing software turned out to be useless after two or three times - the software tests do not change: the same questions come up over and over, and with three or four tries all (few) questions are memorized.Check out the New Rider's Publishing books on getting your CNE before getting one of these - the tests are better, and no miserable analogies.

5-0 out of 5 stars I felt like sitting next to the author while he was teaching
They called me a book worm. I love books since I was a child. I always learned from my books, learned how to behave,and all the qualities of an examplary human being. Till now when I have reached final year of my graduation in computer engineering I have kept my books since I was 10. And when I went through CNE STUDY GUIDE, I admit that I've never read any book like that before. Infact I have never been tought that way before. I felt like the author is siting in my room, right next to me, and teaching me. The proof of my words are that I passed 2 tests 1. Netware Administration (CNA) 2. Netware Installation amd configuration Workshop only by studying this book and I am confidant that I can pass the third test (advanced administration) without taking expensive preparatory classes. This book saved alot of my money, almost 550$ till now. For me this book will remain immortal throughout my life. Truly a great book. Javaid Ahmed Soomro ... Read more

NetWare and IntranetWare are powerful network operatingsystems representing vast universes of information for interestedminds to absorb. Novell's CNE Study Guide: IntranetWare/NetWare4.11 carefully and thoroughly presents almost every aspect ofthese two systems. If you can't find it here, it's the kind of thingthat was meant to be learned by experience.

Plunging right into thetheory of network operating systems and the fundamentals ofadministration, Clarke details the workings of Novell DirectoryServices (NDS) by explaining its design and implementation. Inexplaining its implementation, the author walks through an excellentscenario, detailing the mechanics of getting clients, servers,printers, and applications ready for NDS. He also goes into depth ontraining.

The author explains how to install IntranetWare, payingspecial attention to migrating from NetWare. He also coversIntranetWare administration, security, optimization, and printing andscatters practice questions throughout the book. In addition, thosestudying for the exam will love the appendix, which correlates examelements to specific passages in the book.

Before you buy thisbook, consider Novell's CNE Study Set: IntranetWare/NetWare4.11, a box set that includes this book, Novell's CNE Study Guide forCore Technologies, and a two-user version of NetWare 4.11 fora lower price than it would cost to buy the components separately. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars The Worst Technical Manual I Have Seen To Date
Just finished a LAN Class, where I had to buy books on NT, Cisco, MS-DOS and Novell. Got through all the other books with no problem. Then my instructor saved the best (worst) for last. I get nauseated trying to learn anything from the text in this book. I can stand to read about two pages in a row at any given time and then I have to close it and take a break. Today is my last day of class and I haven't finished this book yet and don't believe I will. The only good thing about it is that it is very thick and dense and will make a nice backstop when I go to the pistol range and shoot it full of holes.

2-0 out of 5 stars Save trees and readers, please.
All knowledge this book offers is well hidden behind all those jokes and "zen" things. It's a good book for people who want to train how to distinguish between useful and useless information.

Very lowinformation/page ratio.

1-0 out of 5 stars So full of fluff, it takes work to wade through it!
Like many other reviewers here, I found all the irrelevant junk Mr Clarke filled his pages with to be distracting and irritating. The only reason I bought it was that I picked it up... at a discount book store. I still think I wasted my money. And I should have known better because his CNAStudy Guide is just as bad.

The cover says it comes with THE Clarke Test(emphasis mine) and the text in the book describes the full version. Butthe software you get is actually nothing more than a demo. You have to readthe fine print hidden around the edge of the CD to know this beforepurchasing.

I think this book is a waste of time and a rip-off. I woulddemand my money back from Mr. Clarke himself if I thought I could get it.Whatever you do, never buy any books by this man.

1-0 out of 5 stars Never have so many trees died for so little reason
I owe Mr Clarke a debt of gratitude.It is thanks to his writing style that I am an MCSE and not a CNA or CNE.The book is thick, which isappropriate--anyone who could get through this thing must needs be prettythick himself.The jokes and cartoons are annoying without being in theleast bit diverting.NetWare itself is hardly the most exciting OS on themarket, but this is ridiculous!Don't waste your money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great book if you know how to use it!
Mr. Clarke definitely knows his stuff when it comes to intranetware, but the book is about 600 pages of fluff.If you are looking to study the key points, use appendix B.It summarizes all the key points to the NovellCourse Objectives and tells you what pages within the book to read.Istrictly read these pages and bypassed all the 'fluff'.Using this methodyou should have no problem knocking out one exam a week. ...
