OS X Server 5.0 Essentials – Apple Pro Training Series: Using and Supporting OS X Server on El Capitan Review

About the book :

The authors have serious technical writing skills. I’ve been inspired by such talented,  experimented and professional people. 

Intended Audience : technical coordinators, entry level system administrators, students (anyone who already have a little knowledge of macOS and want to go further.)

I feel supported by Apple. The book is very well organised. Written in 2016. It is about an application from a very used operating system by Apple Inc. This is an IT manual. It is about being knowledgeable about an Apple product. It is a scientific and highly technical subject. It explains how OS X Server works. It is well-written. It’s easy to read. It is exactly 722 pages long. The authors make a complex subject easy to read and practice. It’s a colourful book (with highlights and screenshots). Thats good to my eyes and efficient because as the idiom say « A picture is worth a thousand words ».This book is very well organised. All the exercises are planned to be done in a safe environment (test server).

If you want to know more on a subject there is a lot of links to the Apple official support website (often it can be a pdf file with beautiful pictures).

I would like to thank all the people who have worked at Peachpit Press for making this book possible. Thanks for sharing with us !

I have published my review on Amazon, GoodRead and in my personal Blog.

My personal opinion : 

I think of the reward before reading a book. After reading a book, i have a feeling of mastery. It’s good because it expand my knowledge. I feel supported. I’m passionate about Apple products. I highly recommend this book! This book will improve your mind and maybe, your life. This book is full of solutions you might encounter in your work life. It will complete and improve your skills. I see this book as an opportunity to grow (if you grow, you’re customers will grow too; it’s a win-win situation) and master the subject at hand. After you learn something, you can teach others people. So, I think you can evolve professionally with this book.

Why buy this book : 

See it as an accelerator for your career.

How to choose : 

You have the power to buy at Amazon in kindle or paperback format. If it an ebook : it’s cheaper because no need to pay and wait for the delivery ; and more useful because it can be open in a tab on your computer. To me, I prefer the Kindle Cloud Reader to practice while I am reading.
