5-0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the Exchange section alone
I picked this up after noticing it in a book shop (sorry Amazon!).I'm an Exchange administrator and this book gave me some great scripting tips for managing and monitoring my environment.I haven't gone much beyond that since, to my regret, but the concept of packaging scripts was news to me, and I would love to find the time to try out some of the other more elaborate techniques in there.But of course, I am an Exchange Administrator ;-)

5-0 out of 5 stars As good as they say
This is an excellent follow on book to "Microsoft Windows 2000 Scripting Guide," ISBN: 0735618674, which was my previous bible. I had long ago advanced past much of what is written in that excellent foundation book for VBScript, and this advanced volume really fills in the gaps. After purchasing numerous VB and VBA references that are nothing more than syntax libraries, I feel I finally have the big picture on the capabilities of this technology with this book. It is all clear.
5-0 out of 5 stars Delivers what it promises
It never ceases to amaze me how many scripting books, including this one, start off telling you that you should already have intermediate to advanced scripting skills before you read, yet spend an initial chapter explaining what an array or an object is.It leaves me feeling that their definition of what "advanced" is will differ greatly from mine.I am also always a little dismayed when throughout, a book plugs a costly script development studio and spends time pointing out why your chosen script editor isn't good enough for your projects.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice introduction, a little code heavy
This is a nice introduction, reasonably well written, introduction to using Windows automation through VBScript. About a third of the book acts as an introduction to the basics of VBScript for use in this context. He covers basics like variables, conditionals, functions, error handling, and more. The other two thirds of the book covers a variety of topics like shell extensions, ASP, XML, active directory and more. This is up-to-date stuff.
5-0 out of 5 stars Not to basic for this administrator
Was Joseph DeMarco (previous review) reading the same book? The book has several chapters on AD scripting, and they showed me how to create users, delete them, create OUs, and more. The book has THIRTEEN chapters on learning VBScript, which I didn't know and now I finally do. They're clearly written and they're not super-deep, so I got through them quickly. If you're a professional developer, this book isn't for you. If you're a systems administrator, I can't see how this book wouldn't be helpful.1-0 out of 5 stars Too Basic for System Administrators
I bought this book based on other customers' reviews. The book talks very generally about scripting for Active Directory. The book contains the word "VBScript", as well as "Managing Windows". However, it covers very little about the in's & out's of what it possible. The sections on ADSI are watered down and virtually useless. The script examples are simple, and aren't thorough at all. I found more information on Microsoft's web site. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very useful VBScript reference
This is not intended for beginners in scripting or VBScript in particular. But for anyone with even moderate programming or scripting, this may be all you'll need to become familiar with VBScript.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good Reference Book
This is not the book to learn the basics of VBScript, but it's exactly what I needed; a good reference book. I got tired of trying to find syntax of commands and functions online. Now I have it at my fingertips.

5-0 out of 5 stars NUTSHELL
I don't have this book, I've never read it.But the negative reviews for it are out of line.People have reviewed it claiming it isn't for the beginner or for learning VB Script.NO KIDDING!!It is called NUTSHELL for a reason.It is a reference book, NOT a learning book.Don't give bad reviews for a book because you were too stupid to realize you bought the wrong book.That's just as bad as buying a Java book and complaining that it doesn't have any Javascipt examples in it. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars 2nd Edition is outstanding as a tutorial and as a reference
I owned the first edition of this book, and although somewhat confusing, I was able to learn VBScript from it with some time and patience. Thus, I just expected the second edition to be an update of the first. I was very pleasantly surprised to see that the second edition had been greatly improved. There are clearer and more frequent examples, the text is an easier read, and there are frequent and illuminating illustrations.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good book for starters
I bought this book, as I wanted to write some simple VBScripts to help automating some laborious manual process for my job. This book is so easy to browse through and as I already have some knowledge of VB Programming and so I can easily browse through the chapters. Even for a beginner this is a good book to start with. I could start writing the scripts I wanted for my job and I like this book so far.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book, be sure to buy the 2nd Edition
This is an outstanding book.At first I was confused by some of the older reviews, until I realized that Amazon is still selling the old 1st edition, and many folks are buying that one instead of the newer, much better Second Edition.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poorly, Poorly Written
This book was a complete disaster in comparison to other books I've used from Thomsons Course Technology.The examples are extremely thin and you will have to use the internet as a resource because much of the tags and code the book leaves out and you have to fend for yourself.I had to buy this book for a class I am taking.Most of it is totally outdated and I can'tbelieve my school is still using it for the Internet Programming class.What a waste of my money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good educational book for learners
Very good educational book for learners. My only complain it does not include sample code CD-ROM; it would most likely catch all the mispelling. But for teaching material its an excellent book to have.

1-0 out of 5 stars Does not rate a STAR
Very bad examples in this book. Spelling errors, coding errors, you will need to buy other books to figure out what she is trying to teach. She should have read her book before printing it. This book should never have been printed in the first place. Not a good book at all. She provided only part of codes and you have to figure it out yourself. Why do we need her botch attempt at being an author or teacher. SAVE YOUR MONEY on this one. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Could be better
The reference material seems accurate but I have found more detail in the free help file that comes with VBS 5.6.Return values and types and the actual values of the builtin constants, which I didn't find in the book.
4-0 out of 5 stars A very handy little book
It you want to learn VBScript go elsewhere. However, if you just want a quick reference that you can take anywhere this is the only book for you. It is remarkably concise and very well written. Its perfect for the VBScritp programmer that needs a little help from time to time looking up a hard to remember command and its syntax.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for non VB programmers.
I like the O'Reilly pocket reference series. They don't take up a lot of desk real estate, and you can generally find what you need to know in a hurry. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Still using this book in 2003!
This is the best VBScript book and I've never felt the need to get another one.It's accessible to a novice (which I was when I first bought it) but has enough depth and richness of information to still be used as a reference guide now that I have over 5 years of experience.I can look up all the functions in it quickly (easy to forget syntax when you're programming in VBScript and client-side JavaScript at the same time), since I've marked the pages with post-it tabs, and it's well organized so that I can find things quickly even if I haven't marked them.Sure,it doesn't describe some of the newer language features that came out after it was published, but still it will work 95% of the time.I notice the same author worked on the O'Reilly VBScript in a Nutshell book, so I might check that out, but generally I don't like the Nutshell books as much because they don't have code samples.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great bridge to VBScript for ASP
I had been developing strictly with perl for Unix, when I needed to dosome work on an NT platform I ordered this book. I used it coupled withO'Reilly's ASP in a nutshell and finished the job quickly. It is a greatreference for migrating from other scripting languages.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great for "intermediates"
This book is NOT for complete novices like me!Terms like "OCX", "32-bit", and "server-side includes" are used but not explained at all.With some help from other books, someof the material made sense.That said, there is a lot of good content inthis book.I'd recommend a more introductory book (is there one?) for truerookies. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A diamond in the Rough
There just are not that many really good VBScript books out there. And there are even fewer well written VBScript books that target power users, system admins and advanced readers. Well, this book is one of them. It provides a quick review of VBScript (for those that need a primer or a quick overview) and then procedes to demonstrate how to use VBScript to tackle several different projects. This approach provides a great balance between theory and practical hands-on application. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars great for the beginner
I reallly enjoyed this book. It was a great reference for a beginner such as myself.It was easy to read and very easy to understand. I definitely recommend this book to anybody wanting to learn how to script.I would have it given it five stars but there were a few spelling and graphical errors in it. Other than that, a great book for beginners.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Must Have!
This book is an absolute must for the beginning VBScript programmer.Not only does Ford provide step-by-step direction to scripting, gradually ramping the complexity of the exercises, but he leaves the reader with WORKING scripts in the form of games with foundational concepts applicable to real-world scripting development.4-0 out of 5 stars Not Bad
This book was a very easy read.I am a complete beginner when it comes to WSH and VBScripting.I found this book to be a great primer.The only questions the book left me with were the actual syntax of methods, properties, and built in functions.These are important areas, but I feel the book left me with a good overall understanding of the 2 topics.I am not sure I could write my own worth while script yet, but I could definitely read and understand a script already created.Only took 2 days of reading to complete this book and my interest was kept the whole time. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Helen fails to REFRESH an old topic
This book does not serve its purpose as a definitive reference.I was able to read it cover to cover in an hour or so while sitting in an airport and found nothing remarkable - the striking part is that the book dismissesobjects, methods and properties which the author does not understand orhave experience with.REFRESH, for example (which is treated dismissivelyin the book) must be used in order to refresh a changed collection in amulti-user environment or update a collection in a rapidly changingsingle-user environment, or the field that you expected to be gone willstill appear; or the table that you just built using DAO won't be in thecollection.1-0 out of 5 stars It is a little late for a book on DAO, is it not?
We are certainly at a point where Microsoft would prefer for people to believe the DAO is in fact DOA (dead on arrival). While it is naive to believe every marketing nugget that comes out of Microsoft, a referencebook on DAO at this point seems a little late, doesn't it? Sort of like ifO'Reilly put out an OS/2 reference book tomorrow.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book was definitely worth purchasing
This book was very good for both beginners andintermediates.I had already been doing some html coding so the book started a little slowly - the chapters in the beginning dealing with the WWW and HTML were very basic.With chapter three the authors went into a brief description of differences between VBScript and Visual Basic.After that they launched into the meat of VBScript.They did a fine job of walking the reader through each step.Each section of each chapter had review questions with the correct answers available at the back of the book.Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Complete wate of money and TIME
I too found the book lacking in its explanations. In most cases it failed to breakdown the scripts adequately. It also failed to provide comprehensive examples. 5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book
This book is for beginners.It is very well written and keeps your attention.I recommend it as a first book. For the guy that only gave it 1 star, who in their right mind would think they can pick up a 350 page book on vbscripts and think that they will be able to administer their network?That aside, i suggest everyone that is interested buy it. It's probably the only updated book on vbscripts that you will find and well worth the 25 or so bucks.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well, I liked it...
This is a good book. There are not many books in print that focus on VBScript and most of them seem to me to be written for hard core programmers. Learn VBScript in a Weekend goes a long way to filling the void of 'unwritten entry-level books' on VBScript.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not the worst, not the best.
A general overview of VBScript.Definately not the best book.If you are used to books like Professional Active Server Pages (Wrox) or JavaScript for the World Wide Web (Peachpit Press), you will be sorely disappointed by this book.One good thing about it is that it gives review questions at the end of every chapter, which I liked, but as far as information goes, it is not the best. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book- allows users to get quick grasp on VBScript
This book was great-- from the very beginning you are writing scripts and learning by example. Everything is very conversational and easy to understand, but without falling into the trap of seeming condescending to advanced users.5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book with a great Web site
This book is perfect for learning the easiest scripting language around and the wonderful companion Web site will keep you going long after you've finished reading.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too many errors in sample codes...
Visual Quickstart Guides are generally comprehensive and easy on the eyes. However, I found too many errors in the sample codes of Thurrott's book to warrant anything above 2 stars!! Thank my lucky stars(!) that I am familiarwith VB5 and VBA to correct most of the code "on the spot" whiletrying out the samples. All in all, this could have been a good book, butfrom all the frustrations in correcting the errors, I suggest that no onebuys this book until the author uses a spell checker and/or at least goesthrough the book a second time to debug his own sample codes. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars VBScript well EXPLAINED!
With all the other reviews I was apprehensive in buying the book. I bought the book anyway, just like any other computer programming references you would get ideas and techniques here that other books do not offer. A definite must have if you want to improve your skill in SCRIPTING!

4-0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I was looking for!
I wanted a good primer and reference guide to VBScript - this book was both.There are a few typos here and there, but I think it's a great book and have gotten a lot of use out of it.This was the second book I havebought from the "Unleashed" series and I just bought a third!

1-0 out of 5 stars Find a different VBScript Book!
This book has so many errors and inaccurate statements that it would definitely place a newcomer to VBScript (which it was obviously written for and by) on the WRONG track.I purchased this book as an aide to preparefor a class I was teaching, and I wasted my money.Do not buy this book! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars DON'T BUY THIS BOOK, IT IS A WASTE OF MONEY!
This book is not worth buying or reading for free. I doesn't have complete VBscript content (such as the replace function for strings), and what it does have is very difficult to read and understand.It doesn't do a goodjob of providing syntax, and that is what we need to quickly look up theusage of a command we alreadymay be aware of.I wish I could return thebook, and get my money back.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not good for a pure beginner
This book does a decent job of describing stuff. On the other hand, this book does not really describe (in detail) the hands on experience you need and does not bode well with real world programming practices.

5-0 out of 5 stars VBScript in 21 Days: A Killer!
"Teach Yourself VBScript in 21 Days" is a killer book.I have never programmed with server-side scripting or client-side scripting of any nature.I had taken VB 4 the previous semester at a local community college. I read this book for an educational institution as core and I never came to class, but I STILL learned VBS just by reading and examples!I highly recommend this book for introductory VB classes as well.Not appropraite for intermediate and advanced VB curricula. In fact, even hating the C interface, this book gave me enough scripting confidence to learn JavaScript and even attempt to taken server-side Perl!Currently I am working on full-blown Java applets, JavaBeans and ActiveX with VB...All this while absolutely HATING C programming. Timothy Koets is also currently my VB 5 professor; this booked prompted my undertaking of the class.I encourage other Scripting Professors and other institutions of higher learning to imlement this book in their curricula. A definite 10 from an experienced HTML programmer! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars 80% fluff for Visual C++ programmers
Book deals with one single ActiveX control, with no UI, and a simplisticpurpose.Yet the author spends 80% of the book explaining the *businesslogic* (not the ActiveX-specific issues) of this silly example. (and thecode listings of every iteration)Good beginning, good chapter on VBX toOCX (if you need that), but overall dissapointing.Hardly"inside-out" coverage to a proficient VC++ developer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Complete reference for in-process ActiveX controls w/ MFC
If you are looking to develop in-process ActiveX controls, this book will make a very good reference.Although the examples could be more mainstream, the technology detailed makes it a read worth your while. After all, it is as close to the source as you can get & you get thiswithout worrying about marshalling, local or remote.The focus is on freemarshaling, a.k.a. non-existant, as it should be.

3-0 out of 5 stars Actually, it's two and half
the stars are given to the style that explains things from the ground. However, it's out of date somehow for COM programming using MFC. I'd like to recommend Beginning MFC COM. (4 stars, unless you have a goodunderstanding on COM, otherwise, go to Inside COM =>Essential COMfirst). ... Read more
