As the title says, this is an excellent book.

There are some things to keep in mind, however:

This book was made specifically for passing the exam, and therefor if you wish to delve into various capabilities of things like the command line in-depth, you'll need further resources. (Especially things like full-on scripting.) If you're jumping into the command line "cold," something like the O'Reilly BASH book would make a good companion.

AppleScript, it should be noted (beyond a half dozen pages in this book), is in another book in this series.

If you wish to become knowledgeable about Mac Servers and you're not seasonably Mac proficient (esp in the 'Apple Way' of doing things...), you'll need this book as the Server book alone will not do. You'll also want the Directory Services book. (Actually, if you start working with DS in any format, you'll want the DS book, Server notwithstanding.)

Again, it's a sweet book and gave me the foundation so I can continue taking my skills to the next level.

Small Nitpicks: Only a few errors, but they will bite you if you don't catch them (Which you will if you try the examples.) If it doesn't look/work right, websearch it, try it both ways, and you'll be good to go.

The top of the page doesn't give you the chapter number (just name), while many pages refer to explanations of various resources in different chapters. As I'm one of those people who "can't let it go," (and look it up immediately) this was irksome.

The nitpicks aren't enough to cut it a full star: 4.5, rounded to 5.

I'm not going to try and convince you that the subject matter is interesting or exciting. It's a technical book for a test. You know it's not going to be thrilling.

But, this book does a great job of teaching the various elements of Snow Lepoard in amazing detail. It gives time estimates for each chapter, it has review questions (and their correct answers), and I found that it prepared me very well for the exam.

You should still definitely have experience with the Snow Lepoard operating system, but this book will teach ANYONE at least half a dozen things that they didn't know before.

The author makes learning this material as easy as possible. It's not a thrill to read, but it gets the job done efficiently.

After reading and highlighting this book, I passed the exam comfortably on my first try.

Mac OS X Support Essentials v10.6 is an extraordinarily well written book. It thoroughly covers the subject matter that it claims to cover. (When you read a book with this title you expect to learn exactly what this book delivers.) The pace is even and the progression is natural. The writing is clear and free of extraneous fluff--very skillfully done. No lame attempts at humor or other failed artifices that distract the reader. There is a lot of material, but the reader never feels like he is being buffeted by a whirlwind of facts and "how to" steps. But the most surprising thing about this book is the very high quality of the editing. I must be mistaken, but having read all 663 pages I can't remember a single typo. No (or extremely few) misspellings or mismatched cases, numbers, etc. Only a few places where there is any repetition, and those places are clearly intentional (for example, repeating a short note that was encountered in a previous chapter when discussing a topic from a different angle). The high quality of all major aspects of this book is rare in the computer industry and very refreshing.

Very dense and sometimes difficult for me to mentally follow along with the concepts being discussed by the writer.

I have 5 Macs of various forms and along with various operating systems. I was looking for a manual that really dove deep into Snow Leopard to help me understand the inter workings of the system. I beleive this manual goes the trick. It's certainly not meant for beginners and is more of a technical manual then a reference book. It fits my needs and I've even ordered the Mountain Lion version as well.

I ordered this book to help me with OSX support issues that I have and could face with my MacBook Pro. I am using Snow Leopard OS as it blends with the software that I use and; I have found it to be stable and fast enough to meet my needs. The book has helped me identify one issue so far but I will look to it in the future if have any problems.

nothing about server v10.6
The purpose of this book is to prepare for the Apple OS X 10.6 certification test. This is a book for serious geeky users. If you are looking for a book telling you how to use your Mac try David Pogue's Missing Manual series or something similar because this is not that book. On the other hand, if you're looking for an in-depth look at the inner workings of the operating system or if you're trying to get a handle on administering Macs this book is quite useful.

I bought it to study for the certification test in place of taking an expensive class. If you diligently study and remember this book cover to cover and know the answers to all the study questions thoroughly you can pretty much take the test successfully. Along the way I learned in a lot more detail than I might have otherwise the ins and outs of how the operating system is structured and how to make it do what you want it to.

If you're using it as a reference rather than a study guide it is a good solid block of knowledge concerning the nitty-gritty administrative stuff. If you're a hard-core user, if you use or administer lots of Macs or a network then this book is worth having around.
