Best I`ve seen
As a student, I found this book very helpfull. Although this is a dry subject, this book allows the student to learn with a hands on approach (hence the title). I recommend this to anyone interested in this field.

An excellent introduction and useful reference.
Each chapter covers a new topic while building upon previous material. Lab exercises that really drive home the material are at the end of each chapter. Very hands-on learning. Topics include query, DDS file creation, programming calling, display files, CL programming, basic operation with commands, command prompting, the all important library list, and much more.

After taking a intro AS/400 class with this book I was well on the way to being an advanced user. I even knew more then some longtime operators.

I've seen and bought other AS/400 books, but I still keep coming back to this one, and have never seen a better intro book.

such a painful read
As a student, I find this book to be a complete nightmare. It is poorly organized and structured. The author seems to prefer to write in long paragraphs and carry-on sentences which makes it rather difficult to follow. I may be biased. Let's draw your own conclusion, by comparing this book to any other well-written computer books(any O'Reilly or Wrox book) on the market.
