Must Have Book for New Admins

I have been reading a book the past couple of days called The Practice of System and Network Administration by Thomas A. Limoncelli, Christina J. Hogan and Strata R. Chalup that I really want to recommend to any new system or network administrator. I have really felt like I am all alone out there a lot over the past year and a half that I have been a new admin, and I wish I had this book a year ago. It looks to be a top level, yet very practical step-by-step guide on how to get your IT Department (no matter how big or small) into to shape. It also focuses on those areas which are important no matter what your industry. I really can’t recommend this book highly enough. I got it for the move I am planning, but I already see that it will help in many other areas as well.

  1. We were lucky to have been taught my excellent mentors. We tried to put that knowledge into the book so that others could benefit. I’m happy that you find the book useful.

    Good luck with the move!
