      Comments about oreilly Mastering Windows Server 2012 R2:

      1) This book is about Windows Server 2012,not Windows Server 2012 R2(because authors used a very early beta release of 2012 year).
      2) There are no new features included in Windows Server 2012 R2,only features included in Windows Server 2012 .
      3) Many errors
      4) Very basic information
      5) Very expensive book
      6) If you read about Windows Server 2012 - this book not for you
      7) If your level is not a novice - this book not for you(In this book you will not find in-depth information on any topic in this book)
      8) In the book IIS 8,PowerShell 3,ADFS 2.1 and etc. -this is correct for Windows Server 2012,not for R2(IIS 8.5,PowerShell 4,ADFS 3)

      I am very upset buying this book. Topic of the book does not meet reality. I do not know why the authors of a book called "mastering". I would call the book "Fundamentals of Windows Server 2012." If you read the Mastering Windows Server 2003, you will be shock-like different depth of the material in these books.

      My rating - 1(price,knowledge,material,newest)
      For novice rating -3
