1-0 out of 5 stars Not worth a penny
I'm a mechatronics engineer with no formal training in software design. I bought this book to learn the basics of software design for a major project. I regret every penny I spent.
1-0 out of 5 stars Boring and Obvious
This book touches on some nice topics but if fails to state anything more then the obvious for anyone that knows anything about OO and the unified process.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent - if you willing to put in a ton of effort
The "Unified Software Development Process" is still probably the best book yet on software process. Yes, it's difficult to read and it's not an introduction by any means (it reads like a textbook). but, if you're willing to put in the time and effort, what you'll get out of it is i think is worth it. I often had to go over a page many times to understand exactly what they saying, and routinely ended up with a headache. but, I really think it pays off.

2-0 out of 5 stars boring, just read chapter 1 and look for another one.
It takes me 3 years to finish this book, only first chapter is very good;
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on COM!
This is a must have book for anyone doing COM programming.The great Don Box is a brilliant developer and an excellent writer.This book covers all aspects of COM and gives the reader the critical information that is clouded by the Microsoft tools.

4-0 out of 5 stars Is COM really this complicated?
After reading this book, only two possibilities exist.Either Don Box has made COM more difficult than it needs to be, or it really is this difficult.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good for reference, not for studying.
This book covers most of topic you may need. So, you can use it as a reference on ASP3. But it is not for beginner or for studying from a ground. It is quite hard-to-read, not explained in-depth, and it made me quite ???.

5-0 out of 5 stars Need to know ASP?Get this book.
A bit outdated now with .Net, but I still get this ol' book out once in a while.

5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST book for classical ASP
Obsolete??? Hardly.As I write this review, new Web page technologies are being matured: jsp, php, chm (yech).New models are being matured: Servlets, STRUTS, .NET. Classical ASP 3.0 is still quick, fast and necessary for small to medium businesses, even enterprise-level webpages. There's no better book to learn all the standards, applications, basics, and advanced capabilities of ASP than THIS book.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Robin Williams Design Workshop
I learned about this book at a recent seminar. Bought it here through Amazon. Was a little worried when I read the first chapter that it would be over my head because I am a total novice, but I soon found myself engrossed in the book. It really is very helpful and the repeatition of ideas and "rules" helps drive home the important stuff. Well laid out so you can skip the chapters that don't interest you. Although I would consider reading them. I found that certain ideas hit home better in some chapters than others and I think it has helped my overall design ability. Good Book especially for those of us who love how-to books.

3-0 out of 5 stars Robin Williams Design Workshop
This is a great reference for print design but the web site section is almost laughably outdated.Gone are the days of splash entry pages and HTML tables for non-conmplex layouts (now easily rendered by CSS). And who the heck is running 640x480 resolution on a 14 inch monitor these days??

this book is not suit for j2ee beginners, no detail explanation to build basic j2ee idea; but if you have some concepts about web components and ejbs but no sense in real world projects and how to deploy projects into a server, there are a lot of examples in this book, it is a good practice.

4-0 out of 5 stars Getting familiar with the router and its commands.
This e-trainer helped me put alot of the router commands that I had only read about to work. I recommend this e-trainer for those who want to get familiar with navigating in a router and for those who need to get familiar with how the routers interact on a network.1-0 out of 5 stars Stay away!!!!!!
Stay away from this thing! Don't believe the 5 star reviews, they are most likely fake. This product is VERY buggy, lots of problems. Also, it is VERY limited in what you can do, you pretty much have to stick to the few labs, no have no room to "play" and try different configurations without running into trouble or getting errors. Not anywhere worth the $$$ they are asking. Even if it was free,it is a frustrating waste of your valuable time. If you are smart you will not buy this. I would give it 0 stars if I could!

4-0 out of 5 stars A good tool for learning to configure routers
If you don't happen to have access to a Cisco router (who does?) but do have access to a PC, this tool can simulate about 80% of router configuration prompts, and 100% of the ones that Cisco tests on.Router configuration and routing table organization is roughly half of the CCNA exam, so this can help greatly in preparing for thoses parts of the test. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Nielson disappoints again
Admittedly, I've been biased against Nielson's works since the publication of `Designing Web Usability' in 1999; finding his tendency to oversimplify and `deconstruct' rather ineffectual. And as usual, `Homepage Usability' disappoints as an overly sensational and inaccurate evaluation of homepage usability. There are good parts, in particular, the statistics you may want to reference for your own usability initiatives. But the `50 webpages deconstructed' portion is not much more than Nielson spewing hot air. If you learn (or are entertained) best through critique by an impossible standard and ideal, by all means, this book is for you. If you are looking for a USABLE and real life guide to homepage design, look elsewhere.

3-0 out of 5 stars Jakob Nielsen is a huge dork!
I was forced to use this book for college in a "Website Admin" class.I think the first 53 pages make a good reference for web design but the rest of it is all about how fortune 500 companies have bad websites.Yahoo, Amazon, eBay, etc... come on now, these companies ARE the internet and this guy is "deconstructing" them and critisizing what they do wrong.Anyway, design is completely relative so use this as a guide only.By the way... pages 54 through 320 can be removed as far as i'm concerned.
4-0 out of 5 stars detailed critiques of major websites
This book excels in giving detailed critiques of the home pages of 50 prominent websites. These include Microsoft, Barnes and Noble, Amazon, General Electric and Boeing. The websites span the gamut from appealing to a mass audience, like Amazon and MTV, to more specialised corporate sites like GE.

5-0 out of 5 stars I am so happy to have found this book and DVD lesson
I have needed InDesign Training for a very long time.It is the only program the agency I work for is allowed to use, but I live in the middle of nowhere and have been unable to attend classes.This book and 2 hour DVD lesson totally has gotten me up to speed on making page layouts.I only wish I had bought it from Amazon instead of Barnes and Noble, I would have saved $15.At any rate, get this book.The best thing about it is that the author uses PRACTICAL examples for doing things.Most computer books expect you to know things already.Well, I didn't know squat.Now I do.The author runs you through simple examples, getting more and more complex with functions, until you have it down.I love that!I loved this book so much I ordered his Photoshop book too since I need to learn that program.So, if you bought InDesign CS2 and need help from the get go, GET THIS BOOK FIRST!

5-0 out of 5 stars If it wasn't for Deke....
I would never have tackled InDesign CS2 without this book. Deke lays it out, so to speak, in every way. Do-along lessons, The DVD and the large pictures showing you what it should look like create a visual safety net. You almost can't go wrong. The book lessons are so clear and Deke takes you through every way to do a thing in each lesson. If you're a keyboard freak there are keyboard shortcuts galore, include Deke Keys which you can install with the lessons. I am more of a mouse person and Deke makes sure to outline all the ways you can use the mouse to access pallets and work with graphics and text. Deke is enthusiastic about the software but brutally honest about it's few shortcomings. Best of all, he takes you through the trickiest parts of the learning process and manages to be funny all the while. I always love Deke's lesson plans. Instead of using a stuffy business format for the sample documents he presents you with projects like Little Pupper Friend's Cookie Recipe or Professor Shembops 1970's pop music quiz. It all feels less intimidating. Another good thing is the way Deke explains things for those of us who have been using PageMaker or QuarkXPress. Adobe InDesign CS2 One on One is a wonderful way to learn. The book is great for design people who are not particularly "techie". Still, InDesign CS2 is not for sissies.I know this sounds nutty, but I feel like Deke is right here with me every step of the way.

3-0 out of 5 stars Enough with the shortcuts already
I bought this book because of the extensive amount of instructional video that accompanies the written text. It was something I was looking for in an instructional book - and I didn't find another book with 2+ hours of video. However, after only completing four of the chapters I cannot help but be bothered by the fact that the author has an awful habit of telling you ever possible shortcut configuration for every function. He spends an inordinate amount of time explaining all the shortcut possibilities which is very distracting when you are trying to follow along with an exercise. It's great to know all these handy shortcuts, but if you are just starting to learn InDesign (and I'm guessing here) you initially just want the basics. This approach really slows down the process. Unfortunately, these "shortcut digressions" seem to continue throughout the book. The video content (and the book content) probably could have been reduced by about 30-40% if he didn't labor about every possible shortcut every other sentence. In all fairness the book does contain a lot of content, but I am kinda disappointed by the video. They could have made this potentially excellent book truly excellent if they made an appendix of all these shortcuts rather than cram every option into every exercise. Very distracting. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for beginning C# / .NET windows programming
Mr Petzold covers a lot of ground here. The most fun thing is that you can use the very same concepts in VB.NET or J# with no loss in the material. Sometimes I found the book a little bit long winded in its explanations, but in the end you always know that Petzold will deliver. The book seems oriented toward beginners, but experts can benefit too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent coverage of GDI+
If you have a pretty good knowledge of C# and are interested in GDI+, this book is a must-read. I bought it 4 years ago but didn't read it because Java was so hot at the time. Moving from Java to C# is a breeze with the help of this book and the free Visual Studio Express Edition. Microsoft has done an amazing job of improving the Dot Net framework and the C# language.

5-0 out of 5 stars Funtastic book, 1200 golden pages .
The last reviewers described all, so I decided not going too deep in my review. At this time I didnt had finished this one yet but for what I already saw its a classic C# for sure. The book price is also very good and if you are thinking in getting knowledge of C# on Windows you will not get this book content in other book so easy, this one you must have in your shelf. Very good book from the Master Petzold. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential Reading for Real Time C++ Programmers
If you use C++ in real time environments, you need this book.Real time programmers need to understand "what is going on under the covers."This is really the only book I've found that explains it in depth.
5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars not enough...
I have thought that I had enough knowledge of C++, but after reading this book, I know I was wrong. Detailed discussion of constructor, data member, virtual table, multiple inheritance etc, there are a lot of mysterious details in C++ covered in this book. Yet this book is only 280 pages, which means there are very few redundant words seen in a lot of other tech books.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great for any serious C++ user
If you have been using C++ for a while now, and you REALLY want to know what is going on under the hood, read this book - and gain and again until you have memorized it.As a software architect, I use this book almost on a daily basis - most of the time to prove my case and to show what is really going on behind my design decisions.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Survey of RFID; present and future issues.
This is a compilation of papers from numerous organisations with diverse opinions on how this technology will develop.RFID presents opportunities for great improvement in business efficiencies for corporations and better service for customers and consumers.The flip side is that RFID has the potential to negatively impact individual privacy more than most technologies.
4-0 out of 5 stars speculative deployments
The chapters are written by different authors, concerning various aspects about RFID. The topics give an idea of the scope of RFID deployment. None of the chapters would be considered technical. You are not required to be an electrical engineer to follow any chapter.
3-0 out of 5 stars Fast track RFID project helper
For those who want faster diving in RFID technology I would recommend to take a look at DataBrokers TagTracker. Their new version works with LF and HF transponders and uses Hibernate to store scanned data in a database. It comes with PIRF-Lite (Java written API) which allows the user to make new transponder layouts and interact with the RFID reader differently than it is shown in TagTracker. TagTracker itself is enough to collect RFID data from different locations (RFID readers) and store it in a common database. Like a data pump. All you need is to create your own interface to query the database using your preferred languages/tools , etc. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Aging but excellent book
This book on Python is very complete and at the time it was published was better than any other book on Python.It is still an excellent book and has more information than any other Python book on the market.I have used the book as my major reference work for several years.For non-GUI programming you will find most of your questions answered in this book.The general tips on structure and theory of programming are particularly useful for people who do not have a formal education and degree in computer science.
2-0 out of 5 stars Better name it The Python Bible
Bibles, in the profane sense of the word, are huge books filled with clutter and not meaningful structure, which attempt to cover way more than they should. This is a clear example. It might be worth a quick look to a particular chapter, just to get a quick grasp of a particular area like XML, pygame, tkinter, etc. But definitely, this is not the book a beginner should use to learn the language, because as many said before, it seems to be a blind translation from their also crippled Java book. This reader, who cherished their C/C++ book couldn't be more dissappointed.

1-0 out of 5 stars Wretched
The text and examples in this book are too bogged-down in Visual Studio-isms for it to be a good introductory programming text, but the material is also too basic for experienced programmers.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great coursebook, but heavy for the beginner
Like a few others said, this book is very verbose at 1500 pages, but it's overkill for most people.I like it because it's got lots of coverage on many areas, but the examples are too big and too many and take from showing the meaty theory around each chapters objectives.I still give it 4 stars because others who have looked it over told me it's not too bad

1-0 out of 5 stars A huge over written mass of book
I've been reading technical books for 25 years and this book was recommended to me by someone else - what a let down. First, way too verbose on every subject. I have never seen a book with so much miscellaneous and distracting stuff crammed into one page. The book is 1500 pages of which half don't need to be there. This might work in a class room, but a huge mistake for individual learning. They call there code samples live code, but I call it filling the pages. It's better to explain concepts with simple examples first, then build on them, and this book fails miserably. Many times, only a 2-3 paragraphs explains something, then it goes on for 10 pages dissecting samples. Then briefly concludes before whisking to the next long sample. It's quite the jumble. Also, open any page in this book and you will see 20 bold highlighting of keywords that is very distracting. Also, the pages are thin and have a glare that I find annoying.

5-0 out of 5 stars Rare Good Programming Book
This is one of the rare books, one of the few that I would actually recommend to anyone that is moving into C++ or needs a refresher on the ideas and methods behind programming in C++.You just can't go wrong buying this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Teaching C++ using a strategy that works
The title of the book is an apt description of the approach taken by Eckel as he steps through the basic features of C++ and object-oriented programming. Rather than show how programs are written in C++, he presents the sequence of ideas that led to the structures and some of the ways they are implemented. This approach is very similar to the one I adopted after my first few years of teaching C++.
5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough and complete
This is the best C++ book that I own. There are some concepts in C++ I never fully understood until I read this book. The author covers important details regarding the compiler. He also uses an effective technique to decribe complex C++ concepts by solving a problem in both C and C++. Understanding C++ at this level will help readers troubleshoot/understand their problems more effectively. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An outstanding, uniquely useful book
Because web sites are made with computers, somehow it seems that the vast majority of authors of "how to make a web site" books focus almost entirely on the technical aspects, as somehow devoid of relation to the practical art of making sites that work.
5-0 out of 5 stars Web Design guide
Robin Williams does an excellent job of providing clear suggestions, good rationales, and lots of examples to make her point.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worn this one out
Several years ago I met with the main designer at company that created the web pages for several pharmaceutical distributors in Canada. At the time, I was well versed in creating web pages using several of the professional programs including Dreamweaver, as well as writing code. The designer, however,said that they did all of their designing in Photoshop and then used a slicing technique in ImageReady before editing the site in Dreamweaver.I hate to admit it, but I had never heard of creating web pages that way, so I went home and began looking through all of my web designing books to see if I could find a description of the technique.Yes, I found it in this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great intro to Java
It helps to have a little programming experience under your belt.That having been said, this book provides a comprehensive, and readable introduction to Java.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very nice
I just wanted to increase the rating of the book from the 3.5 stars it has.I disagree with the majority of complaints people had earlier on.This book is very good, and very friendly.It is broken into days, and each new day is a new section which builds upon previous days while improving upon the information you need to know.It repeats some information as you progress thru the 21 sections, but in a clever way.It may be a bit hard for a novice programmer, but programming is not an easy task to begin with.For someone coming from a background in C/C++ or .NET, you can probably get thru half of the book in a week.Overall, this book is very well designed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Start
This is a great book for anyone looking to start Java.

3-0 out of 5 stars Beauty over accessibility
I was hoping this book would be the perfect solution for a class I teach that includes basic Web design and HTML authoring skills, and some of the information hits the mark perfectly. One thing emphasized in my class, however, is accessible design for people with disabilities, and this book does not address that issue at all, except for color blindness. Many of the tips and techniques, particularly about the use of frames and design tables, are out of date in terms of accessible design. Many of the ideas, if implemented poorly (which would tend to be the case by novices), would render beautiful but inaccessible (to people with disabilities) web sites. In the book's favor, it does cover cascading style sheets (CSS) for visual layout, but the importance of using that technique for accessible design is not mentioned. That said, this is a beautiful book with many "before and after" makeovers of how simple changes, such as font size and alignment, can increase appeal and usability.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for High School Teachers
This book is EXCELLENT as a source for explaining concepts.There are LOTS of tutorial books for teaching HTML and specific software programs to generate the code, but THEY don't guarantee because a website 'works' logistically on a server, it WORKS for the intended audience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Step-by-Step Web Design Book
If you are looking for a book to tell you all you need to know about HTML, don't look here.But if you have a basic knowledge of the web (well, maybe even if you don't) and just want an excellent book to teach you the fundamentals of web design, this is the perfect choice.I've been searching for months to find a book that could walk me through designing my own family website and this has been exactly what I was looking for. And truly, the book does take you through things step by step.Visually pleasing, full of examples and useful information, this book is beside my computer almost daily.Even after completing it, there are plenty of things to refer back to, including a great chapter on advanced tips and tricks that I used today when I wanted to force a link in my site to open in a new browser window. I have never felt the need to review a book before, but I'm so pleased with this purchase that I just had to make an exception. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good introduction to operating systems
If you are a fan of the other Deitel books, you will probably like this one as well.I used this book in an undergraduate operating systems course and found it to be very useful.I later used the "dinosaurs" book (Silberschatz et al.) in a graduate course and was quite disappointed by the lack of detail.
3-0 out of 5 stars Good intention != good implementation!
As many other reviewers have mentioned, this book has good content and very well written. However, the plethora of ancilliary information and cliche side-notes, mini-case-studies make what could've been a bar-non primer into a dreadful book. Even though I particularly think that OS is one of the bastions of computer science and thus I think it's a very interesting field, the authors totally missed their target audience insofar as design and layout is concerned! Additionally, this book is peculiar in that it tries to teach some OS examples using (of all possible languages) Java! What gives? Even my teacher (who usually defends this book) was upset about that one. And little by little the author manage to get a book you liked at the beginning of the semester into this horrendous text you don't even want to glance into. I gave three stars, because I do think that the content in the first five six chapters is really well explained and supported...overall...buy it if you must!

3-0 out of 5 stars Well written, but overstuffed with unnecessary material
There are some good things to say about this book.It's written in clear, plain language, with helpful illustrations and code examples.Key terms are highlighted and defined concisely.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book for CCNP, with a few errors
Once again, Sybex has come through with a great resource for CCNP studies.I have trained hundreds of students in pursuit of their CCNP certification with this book.
3-0 out of 5 stars adequate as a review resource
Having all four CCNP topics in one book seems like a good idea.It only works as a review resource though.If you don't already know the material this is not the book for you.It doesn't go into enough detail on enough topics to cover everything that you need to know for the exams.It is a good resource to review before you take the exam. ...
