"Dynamics AX: A Guide to Microsoft Axapta"

Recently I reviewed the book: "Dynamics AX: A Guide to Microsoft Axapta". To start off this book it well writen, and well put together. It has screen shots, and good easy to understand intructions. You can tell the Authors have a lot of experince, and can carry themselves well in the writen word.

Now with that said, this book is great for someone new to AX. If you have at least 3-6 months of experince, you will not get that much out of this book. It does give high (very) overviews of different modules, which are great, espcially if you have never used those modules. Let me also say the claim of this book seems to be for beginners, as it's listed as so on the back of the book. All in all, the overall book for me get's 7 out of 10. This is based on my two number ranking system, one for newbie's (8 out of 10) and one for experinced AX pro's (6 out of 10).

The reason why it ranks slow low for the pro's is because it's not worth the $60.00 for the given content, it is however for a newbie, and I would recommend anyone new to AX get the book.

I like the book and believe that it is an excellent introduction and primer for the newly acquainted and a good refresher for those that are already familiar with AX. Also, if you are like most people, you are chartered with being the SME (subject matter expert) in one aspect of AX (finance, inventory, production, development, ...) and still learning other aspects - this book is great for them to cross-train into the unfamiliar areas.

I agree with your logic. The fact still remains, that for a Pro the content is not worth the cost of $60.00.

If it was priced like half that, maybe, but $60.00 is to much for someone with experince, who knows how to use AX.

I believe to you messed where I said, I would Recommend this to any newbie... and that's were I stand on the review.

It's a well thought out book, and well put together. It's for newbie's and it says so right on the back of the book.
