I think the documentation that comes with WSAD is very good, I learned WSAD and passed the certification exam with this. How does the book compare to this, does it merely re-state what is in the help files or does it have new information not to be found there?
Thanks,
Jehan

In an ideal world, every book would simply re-state what is in the documentation, because the documentation would contain everything you need to know.
This isn't an ideal world.
The book does indeed contain things that were not in the documentation. However, now that the book is published, you may rest assured that the documentation team is pouring through it, plagiarizing with abandon, then editing so it doesn't LOOK like plagiarism. Therefore, at some point in the future, the documentation may approach the quality of the book...
This opinion is brought to you with tongue placed carefully in cheek. (I'm sure the documentation authors are behaving properly.)
