Product Author Bios
Arek Dreyer has been an Apple Certified Trainer since 2002. Originally an expert in Sun systems, Arek shifted his professional focus to Mac OS X shortly after it came out. President of Dreyer Network Consultants Inc., Dreyer has been delivering courses and providing training around the world, both in the classroom and at events like Channel Camp and the Macworld Conference and Expo. Dreyer also provides integration and troubleshooting services for his own customers and for Apple. Along with Ben Greisler, he authored Apple Training Series: Mac OS X Server Essentials v10.6.

The only Apple-certified book on OS X Lion Server, this comprehensive reference takes support technicians and ardent Mac users deep inside this server operating system, covering everything from networking technologies to service administration, customizing users and groups, and more. Aligned to the learning objectives of the Apple Certified Technical Coordinator certification exam, the lessons in this self-paced volume serves as a perfect supplement to Apple’s own training class and a first-rate primer for computer support personnel who need to support and maintain OS X Lion Server as part of their jobs. Quizzes summarize and reinforce acquired knowledge.
The Apple Pro Training Series serves as both a self-paced learning tool and the official curriculum for the OS X Lion and OS X Lion Server certification programs.

This review is from: Apple Pro Training Series: OS X Lion Server Essentials: Using and Supporting OS X Lion Server (Paperback)I have a background as an IT and Networking Professional so I largely agree with Scott Rose' assesment of this book. I could see where others, without this background, might struggle a bit. The reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is that it seems the editing of the book is a bit lacking...that it was done in a rush and not with the same careful thought that OSX Support Essentials v. 10.6 by Kevin White was written. All in all, however, not bad.

This review is from: Apple Pro Training Series: OS X Lion Server Essentials: Using and Supporting OS X Lion Server (Kindle Edition)Excellent reference for learning & understanding Lion Server. You can pass Apple's Lion Server Certification Exam by studying this book.
This book is designed in a really great, easy-to-understand methodology that really drills home the lessons into your brain.
Each chapter contains the following:
1. An explanation of everything you need to know on that particular topic -- in a clear, easily understandable manner. It really felt like the author was having a conversation with you, talking in plain English and holding you by the hand throughout the entire process. It was really just excellent. Advanced topics being presented to you in the simplest way possible.
2. A step-by-step walkthrough for you to apply what you've learned on your very own Mac running Lion Server. Just follow along with the steps and you'll get the desired results on your Mac.
3. A Q&A section at the end of each chapter to quiz you on what you've learned.

Severely disappointed thus far,
This review is from: Apple Pro Training Series: OS X Lion Server Essentials: Using and Supporting OS X Lion Server (Paperback)This is the worst tech book I have ever read.
It blindly leads you through with very little explanation. It's like walking through without any kind of structure.
I mean sure if you need it, but I'd avoid if possible..
