    PowerShell

    Has anyone got any good recommendations for books or any other resources so that I can stop limping through PowerShell and get a bit more fluent with it?

    Cheers!

    I could do with the same. I've been chopping up scripts from the web to get a few small jobs done.

    Same here, you can see how much a tool PowerShell can be, from scripting tasks in MDT, Active Directory, Exchange etc.

    I have been meaning to look into this for some time [complete PowerShell novice here] but I never got around to it.

    A quick Google throws up this site:

    Link 1: PowerShell Tutorial for Beginners - Introduction | PowerShell Pro!

    Links at the site:

    PowerShell Tutorials
    PowerShell Console
    PowerShell Cmdlet
    PowerShell Aliases
    PowerShell Parameters, Objects, and Formatting
    PowerShell Providers
    PowerShell Scripting
    Variables, Arrays, and Hash Tables
    Conditional Logic
    Conditional Logic Using Loops
    PowerShell Functions and Filters - The basics
    PowerShell Scripting with WMI (Properties)
    PowerShell Scripting with WMI Part 2 (Methods)
    PowerShell Scripting with WMI Part 3 (Reports)
    Managing Active Directory with Windows PowerShell

    The first of these:

    Link 2: PowerShell Tutorial - Windows PowerShell Console | PowerShell Pro!

    Is called: PowerShell Tutorial 1: Configuring the PowerShell Console [Looks like it might be a good place to start?]

    HTH.

    Thanks @DaveP I've had a look at that site before... I think maybe I'm a bit odd and in the minority but I do like to learn from a book!

    Don Jones' and Lee Holmes' PowerShell books are all really good. I'll post some more links when I get home, but in the interim you may find the following thread useful.

    www.edugeek.net/forums/links/88992-nine-powershell-ebooks-all-completely-free.html

    To start with I would get the PowerShell Cookbook, 3rd Edition and Learn Windows PowerShell 3 in a Month of Lunches, Second Edition and watch the video below.
