“The Only Thing You Need to Know About IT Master is the Art of Learning.” That's the opening of the book written by Tom Barbee. The book was actually written for those who are not familiar with IT Master, a well known system administrator and consultant.
There's no doubt, “The Only Thing You Need to Know About IT Master” by Tom Barbee can provide you with great knowledge about the system administrators. However, this book isn't just for the system administrators. In fact, it is a very good read for anyone who needs to learn about the inner workings of an IT department or a computer network. Barbee lays out a comprehensive set of ideas about how and why systems and networks work. The ideas and concepts he explains are very practical and very easy to understand.
For example, in chapter one, “IT Master 101,” Barbee explains what an IT administrator does. In the same chapter, he provides an example of a typical situation where an administrator might be needed. In the next section, he explains how important it is to keep track of who's doing what, and why it's so important to know who's behind a particular program.
Next, Barbee describes the types of systems that have been in use since the dawn of the computer age. He compares these systems to modern systems in order to explain the similarities and differences between them. Finally, he provides a simple definition of how computer networks work and explains how they connect with all other computers and networks.
In “The Only Thing You Need to Know About IT Master,” Tom Barbee also covers different types of network devices, such as routers, switches, hubs, routing servers, and so on. Each of these devices has its own unique set of characteristics and is often used in combination with other similar devices to create a more robust system. As you may guess, when you're working in an IT department, it can be a challenge to implement all of the new devices and software systems, and even then, managing the hardware and software can be a challenge.
The last chapter of the book is all about how an IT system administrator can keep track of the progress of the project. By keeping track of the status of the project and what's going on, an administrator can evaluate progress and make sure that it's being done correctly. This is why having a good book like this is so important – it's a practical guide for the everyday system administrator, who needs to manage their projects and improve them every day.
Barbee also gives examples of some situations where he hasn't managed an IT project and ended up being a huge mistake. He explains why it's important to get good system administration training and advises readers to be careful of who they hire to be an IT consultant. It is also important to have clear . . . . . . communication and regular face-to-face meetings with your systems administrator.
Even though this book is written by a well-known systems administrator, “The Only Thing You Need to Know About IT Master” is a good introduction to the field of IT management for those who aren't familiar with the inner workings of systems. If you've ever wanted to take a more hands-on role in managing a project, but don't know where to start, it may be the book for you.
One thing I liked about “The Only Thing You Need to Know About IT Master,” other than its usefulness, is that Barbee offers an alternative learning path to get a better understanding of the system that the author used. He recommends that people use eBooks or online resources to learn more about system management, rather than trying to implement the concepts through a system that the author has created.
Although the book covers a lot of information, it's difficult to read it in a short period of time. While it does offer a lot of information, it can also get a bit repetitive, which is understandable because of the many different types of information presented. But I think that the book makes the process of reading it a bit easier, because of the visual elements that come throughout.
Overall, Tom Barbee has created a really good introduction to the world of IT management. It's a quick read that is full of useful information, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to understand how IT works.
