    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book
    This book covers all the objectives of SCJP 5.0 and moreover in an excellent manner. What I liked most is that this book makes you well aware of what exactly is in the exam and what is not. For instance, the exam objectives include classes like String, DateFormat, File and so on. These classes contain a lot of methods. This book will tell you which you need to know for the exam. This saves a lot of time and effort. To conclude - don't think just buy it and success will follow!!! I passed my SCJP 5.0 with 93%.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for those with experience
    I used this book to help me pass the exam the first time. The book gives you a lot of helpful tips to write the test. The practice exams are really good. Each topic was covered fairly thoroughly in both tests. The book is definitely worth the money. Even though the book does go over the fundamentals, I don't think the book covers the fundamentals (OO design, Java Basics) well enough for a novice developer.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference material.
    This book was all I referred to to get my certification.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Working on your MCSE? Then get this set of books
    This was my sole study guide for the MCSE Server 2003 based certification path, and I was not disappointed.The format is clear and easy to read.The books do a fantastic job of outlining WHY you are learning something, not just WHAT you need to know to pass the exam.I think this is what sets MS Press books apart from the competition: the book itself is structured to the best LEARNING format, and NOT to just passing the exam.I came away from these books with a much greater appreciation for Microsoft's Server and AD technologies (I come from a Linux background since 1995 and I'm the first to knock MS), and these books will be on your reference shelf for years to come -- or at least until the next version of Server ships.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Well Done.
    I've belonged to the Unix world since 1993, working with low level stuff as kernel, device drivers, virus, assembly, C, etc.. and now I'm trying to learn Windows a bit and have enough conditions to take all tests (290, 291, 293, 294). No problems. This a very good kit about MS Windows 2003, well written,well organized and deserve 5 stars.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good
    I would recommend that anyone buying this looks at the publication date as a lot of errata has been corrected in the most recent editions.Orin Thomas has a very useful forum http://www.certtutor.net/

    5-0 out of 5 stars Classic piece of work kept up to date!
    The book evolved from its first edition and its definitely a mammoth task trying to keep in this edition what is relevant and what isn't but i think the authors did it :)
    5-0 out of 5 stars Very detailed, but well indexed reference
    Everything you wanted to know (and probably didn't care to know) about linux.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding second edition of a computing classic
    This badly needed update to the classic first edition preserves what is best about the old edition, which is the format and attention to detail, and adds the changes that have occurred to the UNIX operating system since the first edition was published back in 1992. Specifically, there are implementation samples for FreeBSD, Linus, and MAC OS X included. This edition is as the first one was, an excellent reference for anyone doing system level programming in C or C++ on the UNIX platform. It is was never intended to teach the reader the fundamentals of the UNIX environment nor to teach C/C++ programming. The author assumes a strongknowledge of both. The book begins much as the first edition did, by explaining the UNIX kernel in generic terms. It then goes on to explain the various implementations of UNIX and their specific differences. You will find chapters three through ten largely unchanged from the first edition, as the basic mechanisms of file I/O, directory structure, interprocess control, and signaling have not evolved since that time. Chapters eleven and twelve are two new added chapters on threads, asthreading has become very important in UNIX system programming. Also, gone is the chapter on interfacing to a postscript printer. It is replaced by a more modern chapter on communicating with a network printer. The HTTP protocol is discussed in this context. The book contains a rich set of examples and downloadable code that is very useful. In addition, the book contains the implementations of two large-scale projects: a database library and communication with a network printer. Each project includes complete code with schematics. This book also contains numerous exercises, and the solutions to some of those exercises are included in the back of the book. Since Amazon, and some reviewers, show the table of contents for the first edition but not the second, I include that here for the purpose of completeness:

    4-0 out of 5 stars Credible, but I'll have to see for myself.
    The Scrum principle is simple. It starts with some common observations: that projects generally succeed when someone sidesteps the formal process and gets the job done anyway, and that big teams spend more time tripping over each other than typing code. Scrum starts with the radical idea of announcing that we're going to do what we were going to anyway, then mixing in big handfuls of eXtreme Programming.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Real agile development
    It's very hard to part with the practices accepted for generations. Many companies talk about a new, better way of a project planning, developments' ehgagement and other agile techniques. When trying to apply these techniques, these companies immediately hit the wall of a management looking for traditional ways they've been using for life and with a success (at least, in their estimate). This book makes a Scrum approach very clear and very compelling. You can read chapters from this book to your manager (by the way, I'm a manager myself) and move him/her, step-by-step, to the better understanding how a new approach works.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Common sense, immediate application.
    This book, coupled with Schwaber and Beedle's other Scrum book, are a complimentary package. This book in particular? Common sense.Immediate application.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Remarkably well written
    This book is remarkably well written.It is wonderfully clear and precise.Topics are introduced in a logical order, with great care taken to build on previous concepts.This is a book that works well for beginners as well as for more experienced users, or as a refresher.There is enough explanation so that someone can grasp a new concept, and yet the explanation is sufficiently concise so that it doesn't slow down someone who already has some Unix/Linux skills and is simply reviewing.The book excels in every respect:chapter organization, sub-topic organization, and clear typographical conventions.But the biggest strength of the book is simply the clarity of the writing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars informative view.
    Very good book for the money. All commands are demistified and defined. Bash and C shells are discussed and demistified. This is a great book for anyone trying to learn LINUX.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good book, It complements nicely DVD course
    It is great book no questions here. I was listening to another reviewer's advice and paired it with "UNIX Essentials and UNIX Core" DVD and this thing works! The book elaborates on many subjects and the DVD gives the whole variety of prospectives on Linux and UNIX. I also liked the clear organization of this book. It takes one glance in the list to figure out what do you need and how to get it. It also helps to see how many things maybe accomplished by variety of ways to avoid mishaps. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good book for Linux kernel basics
    This book presents the kernel basics in a lucid language with the necessary details, that both newbies and experienced kernel programmers can grasp. My favorite section is the one about the new 2.6 scheduler. A chapter on the open source community is also included towards the end.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good help if you try to understand the Linux Kernel
    This book describe how kernel works and how was designed, it do not shows lines of code just shows you the way you have to write code into the kernel, I think is helpful if you try to undertand or write Linux Kernel code.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Well written, but out of date
    This book covers the linux 2.6 kernel, but does not apply to 2.6.15 (current kernel).Data structures for working with files have changed for example.If this book gets updated, it would be quite helpful.Its still a great starting place, but be prepaired to go through include files in the linux kernel source quite a bit.Since Linus lost the change logs for the kernel, its hard to compare notes on older kernels.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good resource that is missing information
    While the content that is coveredin the book is covered in very good detail there are gaps between what is tested on (based on the Measure Up practice tests on the compainion CD) and what is covered in the book. This book does not adequately cover IIS (no mentions of virtual directories for example), does not cover CHAP, MS-CHAP, EAP security. Very important details on how to use Sysprep need to be added (How to add additional drivers to sysprep images, building a single image for use on varied hardware).
    5-0 out of 5 stars In depth and easy to read
    This book is excellent. While I am pretty well versed in XP, this book is filling in the blanks nicely. The accompanying CD has a PDF of the book and some excellent multimedia presentation files on various subjects.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Substance and Fluff
    This book really does cover the most important topics in substantial detail.It's well worth the money in terms of enabling one to prepare for the exam.Just the same, it can put me to sleep like almost no other book - not because the technology is not interesting - but because it reads too much like a technical document with paragraph upon paragraph of hyper-specific, redundant detail such as: review the following questions, if you have difficulty answering them, go back and review this material until you feel comfortable with it, blah blah blah, zzz.This kind of content gets repeated in every section verbatim.Yuck!Just cut out the fat, and we would have at least a good three hundred pages less of fluff.Otherwise, well worth the money. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Accept no substitutes -- THE book to read on file systems
    I decided to read and review three digital forensics books in order to gauge their strengths and weaknesses: "File System Forensic Analysis" (FSFA) by Brian Carrier, "Windows Forensics" (WF) by Chad Steel, and "EnCase Computer Forensics" (ECF) by Steve Bunting and William Wei.All three books contain the word "forensics" in the title, but they are very different.If you want authoritative and deeply technical guidance on understanding file systems, read FSFA.If you want to focus on understanding Windows from an investigator's standpoint, read WA.If you want to know more about EnCase (and are willing to tolerate or ignore information about forensics itself), read ECF.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The best work on the topic
    Carrier's book has prooven invaluable to this digital forensics trainee, and I expect many of the old hands in the field will be keeping it on hand as well.If you're serious about computer forensics, you need a copy.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very deep
    I'm pretty technical, so I enjoyed this book.The author has more on file systems than just about anywhere, and I found it helpful in non security work also just to understand how the different systems work.

    5-0 out of 5 stars good for beginners
    It is a very good guide book for beginners really. I knew maybe just a little about Mac. But definitely not enough to help me go though a smooth work process. This book teaches me shortcuts and the necessary surviving skills I needed. I would recommend to other people.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Tutorial
    Having switched from a PC a year ago and having suffered through 12 months with no manual, it is a relief to have it. It is written in plain English, very basic intro to Tiger OS X and should absolutely have been provided to customers free with the computer. Apple is too cute in assuming everyone, of course, is intuitive about "getting" its system. If you've spent much time in PC land it is a huge transition. This book is great because it assumes no knowledge and provides basic definitions. I also bought another "Missing Manual" for iPhoto and that was helpful, as well.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best Window programming books
    This book is one of the best because it forms a foundation for everything that comes after. If you want to understand Windows, you have to have it. It doesn't cover advanced topics, but in order to understand advanced Windows programming, you need to understand everything in this book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Superb instructional book for my needs
    I bought this book for two reasons (a) I needed an overview of IP and (b) I wanted to examine different pattern analysis algorithms with a practical twist.On both counts, as an non-IP researcher, I was very satisfied.The book is very well laid out, so well in fact that it would put to shame many of its rivals.It served my needs.I can't comment on whether it will meet the needs of a broader community.I would certainly recommend it based on my experience.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Practical and Useful
    This book educates the reader in image processing and MATLAB.While I am experienced in both, I found the book to be an extrememly useful reference book for projects involving image compression and image representation.The book offered practical descriptions and useful code for computing the fast wavelet transform.It was especially useful in describing how the edges should treated.This is a big issue that other textbooks gloss over.I had never seen it described in a textbook, and it was described so well.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The best of its kind.
    If you want to get up to speed on Matlab and plan to use it for image processing, this book is a must.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for Exchange 2003
    I like this book because it is easy to read and it is clear. Of course, you will enjoy better this book with prior exchange experience or training.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Are You Ready for .NET 3.0 Yet?
    Just as I was beginning to get a bit of a handle on .NET Version 2.0, along comes .NET 3.0 as part of the new Windows Vista operating system. To be sure, you can run it on XP with SP2 installed after you have installed .NET Framework 3.0. The book presumes that you have experience with .NET 2.0 and with C#. If you do not, the author recommends you read some of his earlier books.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The long awaited Programming Windows, 6th Edition!
    This book is the destined to be not only a classic but also the standard for WPF development.It's look and feel is reminiscent of his previous classic: Programming Windows.So much so, in fact, that you could call this his long awaited 6th edition.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Definitive WPF Book
    I have had this book for about 2 weeks now, as Amazon delivered it to me early before the official release.I am a tech book junkie.I buy a lot of tech books.This is the best programming text I have purchased in the last couple of years.Petzold does a great job explaining WPF from both a nuts & bolts prespective and a big picture perspective.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not for the newbie!
    Definitely not for the newbie.This is for the seasoned access programmers.I you are new to programming (at least in access) and are looking for a book on how to program with access, this is not for you.This is a great book for those seasoned programmers who are looking to make their applications better.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Solid, useful book for development of Access Applications.
    Easy to read first few chapters with basic design info, remainder of the book focuses on complete applications that can serve as a template/best practice for almost any other MS Access application.
    5-0 out of 5 stars I've learned much in the first 3 chapters
    As a self-taught Access developer for the past eight years, I have an extensive library of books dealing with beginneing to advanced areas of Access. I bought this book to add to my library, figuring it to be another reference item. However, in a casual browsing of the content, I discovered this book has much more to offer. I was pleasantly surprised to see information on levels of magnitude for linked tables, never having known that the number of sub folders for linked tables can affect the speed of reading from them.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Deke - PhotoShop - McClelland
    I am sure there are other books that might be easier to follow and that might offer more than this one for learning all of what PhotoShop has to offer, but I just have not found them yet. Light to read with easy step by step instructions for the beginner as well as the accomplished image processor.
    5-0 out of 5 stars One-on-One -- it's not just another Photoshop book
    Deke McClelland knows his subject very well and presents it in a clear and orderly way so new learning rests on a solid foundation. The format works: read the lesson, watch the DVD-ROM video lesson, do the exercises, take the quiz at the end of the chapter. Each lesson is designed to be understandable by those without much Photoshop experience and still include a few techniques that even experienced users probably don't know. And he does it all with good humor. Work files and video lessons are all included on the DVD-ROM in the book, which is bound so it lies open and flat on the desk without any hassle.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The perfect jumpstart for Photoshop newbies
    This was the jumpstart I needed to learning photoshop.This is not so much a tutorial as it is a get-up and start-using photoshop one-on-one session, exactly as the title suggests.So instead of learning the interface in text-book procedural fashion, it's kind of like apprenticing for the author Deke (who also wrote the photoshop bible book).BTW, the author is notably an Master at photoshop, as is apparent when he tells you "nobody uses this command, you can do that function with this new command here".There's a lot to be distracted in photoshop, hundreds and hundreds of different functions, and it turns out that many of these functions are obsolete and only left-in to satisfy old users, so having Deke point these things out is fantastic.Eg, unsharpen mask, obsolete.smart sharpen, da-shizzle.

    We had to buy this book as part of our undergraduate Computer Engineering curriculum at The University of Akron.The book is very well written; I taught myself a lot by studying it.
    3-0 out of 5 stars Try reading 3 pages without falling asleep
    While "Operating Systems" is not exactly the sexiest subject in Computer Science, it ought to be possible to make it interesting, for example by taking a historical or problem solving approach.
    4-0 out of 5 stars its a text book

    The book is well edited and has obviously evloved since its first edition to meet the needs of its readers, based on their feedback.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the best reference for programmers new to Perl
    I am not new to programming, but was new to Perl when I took a job that required a ton of pattern matching based scripting. I immediately convinced my boss to buy a bunch of Perl books, including this one. Usually, I am the type to use Google more than any book when learning a new language, but this book has been indispensible. I go to it first anytime I want to know how to do something in Perl, and 9 times out of 10 it is the only resource I need. I agree with other reviewers that this is not the book for beginning programmers, but I could have saved my boss a lot of money had I just had her buy me this one. It's all I've needed. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A really Solid Quality Book
    This book and its companion "T-SQL Programming" are two great books, they are not for beginners and in some part requires a full immersion, they are not an easy reading... but at the end you you will have a really deep understanding of the topics they covers. I've found really useful to read it two times, the second one I've noticed that a lot of sentences takes a new light after you've a whole overview of all the topics. A definitively must have. Both !

    5-0 out of 5 stars If you are only going to buy one SQL Server book...
    There are occassions when I like to believe that I can write really smart SQL queries. Then I see the stuff that Itzik Ben-Gan and Steve Kass (the Tecknial Rewiwer of this book) come up with, and I crawl back under my rock.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Learn to speak T-SQL from a master
    More so than any other language I can think of SQL is so approachable because it is so logical.Most people can grasp the basics within hours if not minutes.Unfortunately this approachability is often confused with simplicity.Learning SQL may be easy but becoming proficient takes time and guidance.Inside Microsoft SQL Server 2005: TSQL Querying, part 1 of the 2 part series (Inside Microsoft SQL Server 2005: TSQL Programming) is so much more than examples of what to do and what not to do.Itzik Ben-Gan takes you behind the editor and inside the engine to teach you the how's and why's.I recently had the good fortune to attend a course given by Itzik Ben-Gan who is a passionate instructor and a recognized expert.Whether it is listening to him speak, reading his articles in SQL Server magazine or reading this fantastic book there is no one more capable to help you hone your SQL skills. ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not adequate for the Access certification test.
    This book appears to be fine for a general review of the Access topics, but is lacking in detail for the test. I found that the book alone would have been totally inadequate for the certification test. The MeasureUp online training had value, but it too was limited. Access 2003 has a sorting and grouping icon, yet what I found was that I needed to use Access 2000 procedures for this and other MeasureUp tasks, without the newer icons. The MeasureUp study guide was well-presented, yet I faced a culture shock on test day. The questions were formatted differently, the questions significantly different than the way MeasureUp presented them. MeasureUp wrote their questions in a clearer manner than the test, but the problem is that I needed to see the questions as they would be on the test. The text is essentially a step-by-step book, not of test-taking value. I will keep it as a reference, which was not my reason for purchasing it. The MeasureUp training was great, but not related to the actual test.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A useful guide
    This is very much a study guide and is not really aimed at the inexperienced user.It presumes a lot of knowledge and focuses on preparation of the exam elements only.If you need in depth knowledge then there are better books (QUE, other Microsoft products).As a refresher for the exams I have found it to be excellent.It can highlight the areas needing more study and its exercises get your mindset into the MOS exam process.I would recommend it as part of your arsenal in preparing for the MOS exams.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Start for Beginners!
    Simple, straight forward, easy to understand and follow. The practice exercises are really helping you to master the skills of office. Better reading this book with a computer which has Office2003 on it, so that you can try it yourself once you learn something new. ... Read more
