this book will get the job done - if you know how to read it
Nowhere in this book does it claim to be a study guide for the Integrating NetWare and NT exam, however I'm sure many people will buy this book for just that purpose (myself included). The best book to study for the Integrating NT exam of course is to read the white book, however if you cannot get your hands on one, you do not have many choices. Pretty much the only viable alternative you have at that point is this book and the Sybex book - which is very outdated but still covers NT itself very well, which is essential for the exam and for getting the most out of this book. If you are going to use the Sybex book together with this book to prepare for the Integrating NT exam, make sure to take all of the other Novell tests that you need first, in order to get as good of a feel as possible for what Novell tests for on their exams. Then read the Sybex book (read everything about NT in there, and skip the chapters on integrating it with IntraNetware), followed by this book. In this book you can safely skip the first three chapters. Chapter 3, the one on NT networking, is the one where the authors do their worst Microsoft bashing, and as another reviewer here said, that chapter is practically unreadable. However, do make sure to read Chapter 5, in which the Novell Client is discussed, Chapter 6, in which synchronizing the directories is discribed, Chapter 7, which discusses NDS for NT, and Chapter 10, in which ZEN Works is discussed, very carefully. As you read those chapters, make yourself a list of EVERY last NLM, exe, command, vxd, etc. that you come across, along with a note of what that file or utility does and where it fits in. Also write down every procedure, where they are done, how you get to them, and what they do, and then memorize them. I have to emphasize that you do this for EVERY utility, file and procedure, no matter how obscure and insignificant they may seem from the text. If you do that, then IMO you will have a very good chance of passing the test with confidence.

Just Throw your money away, Don't buy this book !!!
After reading a negative review on this book I still purchased it. If you are buying it to pass the CNE elective exam it is a complete waste of time and money. Only about 20% of the content relates to stuff that will be on the test. Sorry to bash Novell which I have alwayse been impressed with; but this time they really let me down. Head to... and pleanty of suggestinos for studying for this test.

It is alright
I used this book in studying for the Integration Netware and NT test and it did the job for me. I covers most of the stuff for the test and is very helpful with using the NDS for NT product. Seeing how Novell has the last NT 4 exam is quite ironic but this book is very good for helping you pass and in real life situations.
