    Hi Noel,

    just builds on A+ skills, real world scenarios that we get faced with.. repairs, its a good little reference book i think, reinforces stuff youve learnt on A+ and more.

    Three copies of my book landed in London last week courtesy of Phoenix's missus. My understanding is that CF is or soon will be holding a contest. Top three winners get one of my books.

    BTW, if you have my book and you like my book...please...write a nice review on Amazon!

    Thanks. :biggrin

    Sorry...I can't help with Amazon discounts. If Sybex approaches me to write a Street Smarts book for XP or Vista, I'd be glad to do it. I *was* working on a Linux book but the deal fell through. Turns out it was a blessing in disguise because I've picked up on another choice project. I'll tell you more about it when I'm in it a little more. :wink:

    Yeah, neither Sybex nor Amazon gives us control over the prices that are charged for our books.

    noelg, one of the admins over at TU purchased 3 or 4 of them, can't remember the amount. For his new staff that he hired at his place of employment. Said he was really happy with the book for a training guide. Since i know how serious Jim takes his job, this said alot. He is the not the type of person to say something good about a product just because a friend wrote it.

    I have the book too and am I'm press with it. It is one of those books that stays on my desk and not in the book case. Goos luck with your studies.

    But only the truth now people. We wouldn't want Trip to get too big a head now as he wouldn't fit through the door to the mods bar out back. Speaking of which....it's your shout.:D
