      "Getting Started with PowerShell 3.0 Jump Start is a decent multimedia experience overall but I wish it were interactive. I would like it more if it asked you questions throughout to see if you're actually learning the material as it goes on."

      "If you do any kind of repetitive work tasks that you think might be able to be automated, you should definitely read a bit about Powershell and see all that it can do. If you're interested in using it yourself, this tutorial is a great way to get started. I have saved so much time and frustration at work with Powershell."

      "The Powershell Tutorial has potential, however, I would like a more detailed explanation of why I'm doing things. Some of the commands are very powerful and you could mess something up if you're not careful. The tutorial needs to be presented in a more organized way."

      "This seems like a perfect solution to the problem. There are many different pages you can go to off of this one website that could answer so many different questions one might have about powershell. It not only shows you how to set it up but training and resources are available as well. Again this really does seem like the perfect solution."

      "This is a good resource if you already know some programming. I used it mainly as a reference to learn scripts to modify my database and day to day tasks for work. It won't teach you the fundamentals, instead it jumps right into PowerShell. You do need a little bit of background in another language."

      "The book Windows PowerShell in Action is an okay way to begin to learn PowerShell. It has great introductory lessons, however it would be more useful if they had a website to work side by side to learn."

Dr. Weltner does an amazing job of explaining numerous components of PowerShell and if you work through this book you will certainly gain a deeper understanding, I did."
