3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Material But Typos and Errors Become Frustrating, 13. Mai 2000
The content seems pretty decent in this book. However, the number of test questions and answers that are incorrect, whether typographically or factually, is alarming (e.g., Pg.92, q.3 is typed wrong and then the explanation is wrong too). Also, the descriptions of SQL security(pg.108) tells of a distinction between Mixed and Integrated Security and then doesn't tell you which mode is being described. User connections on pg.110 incorrectly calculates 85 user connections when the data leading up to this states 50 + 20 + 25 = total connections. A technical book needs to be precise and editted stringently. These ambiguities leave doubts in the minds of prospective test takers. Its bad enough that the MCSE exams try to trip you up with wording without the preparation guides further complicating the situation. The fact that this is the only full-fledged study guide I've seen on SMS 2.0 makes it difficult to dissuade people from buying this book. However, I wish the producers of these books would spend the extra time and resources to ensure that the product is more bulletproof. I don't mind a misplaced comma or an "or" where an "of" belongs, but when key facts and test answers are incorrect, it leaves the reader wary of the whole process. I'll get off my soapbox now.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting and Page-Turning, 20. April 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: JAILBIRD (Taschenbuch)
I enjoyed this book almost as much as "Mother Night" but I am reserving 5 star ratings for the best of Vonnegut. This book made many realistic allusions to events like the Cuyahoga Massacre and the Boston Clock Company that forced me to cite a historical source in order to determine whether the event had really happened. In many cases the events described were based on real occurences. Also the subplots of President Nixon's White House and other real-world scenarios make this book quite different than many of the Vonnegut novels I've read. As a Vonnegut enthusiast or a first timer, "Jailbird" is a must read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Best Book of the 4 Vonneguts I've Read, 26. Februar 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: MOTHER NIGHT (Taschenbuch)
I really enjoyed the matter-of-fact manner in which this story was written. The main character has an uncanny ability to recount events without passing judgment on their morality. I liken the narrator of this book to a third party candidate for political office. There's no partisanship or extreme thinking but rather the ability to see both sides of an issue with equal clarity . I enjoyed this book a bit more than "Jailbird," "Slaughterhouse Five," and "Cat's Cradle." The action was easy to follow and comprehend. You won't be disappointed.
