4-0 out of 5 stars Good SNMP coverage, but I needed a little more help
Essential SNMP, 2nd Ed (ES2E) fills a gap in being a modern book about an important management protocol.SNMP is used extensively by network management stations (NMS) like Nagios, which is now the subject of two independent books.E2SE does a good job covering SNMP issues important to administrators and NMS users.However, the book's organization and subject matter could be improved in the 3rd edition.
5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST HAVE!!
Are you a system or network administrator who could benefit from using SNMP to manage your equipment, but have little or no experience with SNMP or SNMP applications? If you are, this book is for you. Authors Douglas Mauro and Kevin Schmidt, have written an outstanding 2nd edition of a book that demystifies SNMP and makes it more accessible to a wider range of users.

I found this book to give a fairly good description of CVS.It gives a detailed description of CVS and touches on the various GUI frontends that are available.I am learning to use TortoiseCVS and WinCVS and found this book to nicely complement the material available on the internet.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great start to CVS
I administer our CVS server at work.We use CVS in the traditional way, to manage source code from a group of people working together on multiple projects.Before this book, I didn't have a single reference that explained all the basic functionality of CVS.Now, when someone has a question, I can pass along this book for a quick answer.3-0 out of 5 stars Not Clear on the Merging Branches
For me the quick way to review a CVS book is to read it's sections on merging branches. It was covered in about two pages in this book and wholely inadequate.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Digital Photography Pocket Guide 3rd Edition
Well thought out and very easy to use. The appendix (page 139) is especially helpful for finding the right camera set up under almost every possible conition. From point and shoot to SLR, beginner to advanced there is a lot to be gained from owning this little book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Digitial Photography --Great Little Guide!
This is a great little guide for first time digital camera owners and even some good tips for amateurs.I recently purchased a Nikon Coolpix camera and didn't really know how all the functions worked.I read the first half of the book with my camera by my side and found out my camera does much more that I thought!This guide takes you through all the basic modes and buttons on your camera, then it has a alphabetical reference of functions.Lastly it gives you tips on how to take great pictures.I now own a Nikon D200 and just used the book again.It's small size makes it easy to carry in your camera bag for reference.

4-0 out of 5 stars For beginner
Its a good book but suggered only for beginner photographs which have no interests in professional photography. I don't recommend this book for intermediate or professional photographers. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great reference book
"Programming Excel with VBA & .NET" is certainly a very 'weighty' tome. At around 1100 pages you certainly get a lot of paper for your money!However, do you get value for your money? I have yet to read a book on this topic which is more comprehensive in its coverage in terms of the description of the Object Model and the properties and methods, in many cases complete with useful examples. So in that regard it is an excellent reference. The benefit of the author being part of the Microsoft OLE Automation team when VB was added to Excel is very clear. The book also covers VBA itself in good depth. However, I feel that much of this could have been usefully relegated to a reference Appendix. If you are buying this book to learn VBA as such then there are many other excellent choices. The value in this book is in the application of VBA to Excel. You should not consider this book unless you are already very comfortable with VBA. If you are only just learning VBA but try to go on to read the rest of the book, you might find it hard going.
5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and Authoritative
When you attempt to get into a new area of coding, it is best to have an authoritative reference. Confidence in your source really helps in getting through the inevitable rough spots. "Excel with VBA & .NET" seems to fill the bill. It certainly does not hurt to know that the author was on the Microsoft OLE Automation team when VB was added to Excel.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great bang for your buck with useful, very well explained examples.
This book rocks.I started learning Java about 2 months ago with the Head First Java book, which is AMAZINGLY helpful (even if you know absolutely nothing beforehand).Once I got through that all that I began writing small apps on my own, but found in many cases that the API (Javadoc) was hard to understand because my limited Java knowledge leaves me with no context in many cases.I would think, "ok, it says this class can do this using these methods, and that's what I want, but how exactly do I put this into practice."Java Examples in a Nutshell fills this need perfectly with excellent examples(!), explanations, and clarifications.There's only so much that it can cover, but what it does cover, it covers really well.
5-0 out of 5 stars Summary of Java
Great overall summary of Java with examples.Replaces short surveys, tutorials and cookbooks of Java.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book of examples of specific Java concepts
This book should not be expected to substitute as a tutorial for people looking to learn the Java language. Instead, it is a book full of short programs that each illustrate specific concepts in the Java language. If you are needing a tutorial on the Java language in general, I suggest "Head First Java", which is also published by O'Reilly and Associates. You can either read the appropriate chapters of this book in parallel with that one, or look through this book after you finish the Head First Java book. If you already know Java, keeping an updated edition of this book around as a reference is a great idea.

4-0 out of 5 stars great for self-learners
For anyone who has suffered through trying to read a beginners book on C only to end up getting lost half way through, you will find this book a huge relief. This book stresses things like how code so from a perspective of communicating logically. And how to comment thoroughly so their is no doubt what the code does. This is not the end all book on C, so you will want to move on to more advanced books on C after this one.

2-0 out of 5 stars File Creation!
This book starts off very strong and the author is very clear and concise. I learned alot... but then something happens... the author decides to wait for covering floats until after he covers File I/O and he rushes through that. I was completely left hanging with not one example of writing data to a file and the author expected me to be able to complete an exercise in which I need to write data to a file. After this...the next chapter back tracks to covering Floats... which should have been covered previously with the other data types.

4-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for beginners, but recommend a second book!
First of all, this book was absolutely wonderful.It did a very good job teaching me how to write C with very little knowledge of the language.However, there were some things that the author did (and skipped over) that are cleared up in "The C Programming Language", by Dennis Ritchie.I would definitely recommend this book to someone who doesn't have very much knowledge of C, because the writing style is clear and easy to follow.The author, for the most part, does a great job of explaining difficult concepts in an easy to understand manner; such as linked lists and trees.Once again, I would recommend another book as a follow up, such as "Expert C Programming". ...

5-0 out of 5 stars COOKING WITH ASP.NET 2.0!!
Are you journeyman programmer who knows the basics of ASP.NET? If you are, then this book is for you! Authors Geoffrey T Leblond and Michael A Kittel, have done an outstanding job of writing a second edition of a book that is a collection of ASP.NET 2.0 recipes that aims to help you quickly and efficiently solve many of the day-to-day problems you face when developing web applications with the .NET platform.
2-0 out of 5 stars ASP.NET 1.1 with a bit of 2.0 patched on
Much of the content was clearly taken from earlier 1.x versions of the book without being re-written to take advantage of 2.0.Yes, the samples may compile and work, but they are often not 2.0 best practices.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easily the best WebLogic book ever
Don't be fooled by the bad reviews here...if you need to learn WebLogic in "21 days" or want a "kick start", then perhaps this book is not for you. But if you are an experienced developer that needs information one notch better than the BEA docs, then this book should be on your bookshelf. Mine stays at work, dog-eared and always ready to explain some detail to help solve a problem. Node Manager? Clustering? Domains configuration? SSL? It's all covered, in depth. Note that this book covers BEA WebLogic Server 8.1, not Portal, Integration, or WorkShop.

3-0 out of 5 stars Unable to find examples source code
I just got this book about 2 weeks ago. I followed the link in the book where it said that I could download the examples code. I found the book, but not the examples code. Without the example code, I can not really follow the book. Can someone send me the link to the examples source code in the book or post the link on this review.

Editorial Review

Everyone loves Google, and it's the first place many people turn to locate information on the Internet. There's a big gap, though, between knowing that you can use Google to get advance information on your blind date and having a handle on the considerable roster of fact-finding tools that the site makes available.

Google entered the world of search engines in 1998. It was a second incarnation of a search engine service known as BackRub. The name Google was a play on the word googol: a one followed by a hundred zeros. From the beginning, Google was different from the other major search engines online, winning converts with its friendly presentation and constantly expanding set of options.

5-0 out of 5 stars Network Security Hacks
The book is very well written in a professional form. I was able tolearn a lot out of it. It should be in every IT security persons library. But it is not a book for beginners. Although all issues are well explained, a certain computer background is needed, and not basic knowledge only. The book is worth its price.
4-0 out of 5 stars A good book for both Linux and Windows
First, I write software professionally. I write software, I am not a Sys Admin (which is hard work I might add; System Administration is for hardcore people.) This book saved me money by giving me answers to problems that would have taken me days to find the answers to by searching the internet.

4-0 out of 5 stars An advanced index to Tiger Unix
This book isn't for the average geek - if you're a geek but not a UNIX geek then don't buy this book.Even if you are a Unix geek the book is of potentially less value than you might expect... so let me adjust your expectations a bit.

Excellent. Very helpful. And even if you are a real geek who prefers to look up the man pages, or consult mailing list archives, you shouldn't dismiss this book too quickly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book ofr those using the SQL Plus command line or GUI tool
Oracle SQL Plus: The Defnitive Guide
4-0 out of 5 stars the glories of the command line
The glories of the command line. SQLPlus [I am not going to write that irritating asterix] is an acknowledgment of the reality that for many large computer programs and operating systems, a command line utility is vital. The book explains this for the specific instance of hooking to Oracle's database. It is meant as a definitive reference. Showing every command, often accompanied by example code.
5-0 out of 5 stars great guide
I have found this book to be a really great guide that is easy to follow.The author provides a gentle, but thorough introduction to topics like creating reports, writing scripts, customization etc.He offers methodologies and alternatives beyond the syntax that you can find in the manual.For example, he presents and evaluates six ways one can achieve some kind of if-then-else flow control in SQL*Plus.

3-0 out of 5 stars Well written, with a few problems
I would have rated this book as great, but:
4-0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to physics in game applications
If you wish to add more realistic environment interaction or object behavior to your games, you will benefit from this book. This book is much better for beginners than more recent books on the subject that maybe talk in more detail about game physics, but do so from the standpoint of some specific physics engine that the author has put together. I have personally lifted several pieces of code from this book, adapted them to Java, and placed them in a multimedia application I have been writing with no trouble. The book goes over the basics of adapting Newtonian physics to games, and then uses these ideas to set up the motion of simple projectiles, cars, hovercraft, and ships. 3D issues are also discussed at length.
3-0 out of 5 stars Poor code examples, unfortunately
If it wasn't for the poor code examples, I would have rated this book four stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very easy to implement SMO from scratch
Having never written C# or C++ or DMO, I was able to quickly read parts of this book and successfully create a C# program using SMO/RMO to create my transactional / merge replication republishing environment. I had little experience using Visual Studio. I've been focused on T-SQL for SQL development for the past 8 years as a development DBA. When I looked for a book to quickly bring me up to speed in SMO/RMO, I chose this book because it is explicit and gives great examples. I look forward to using it for Reporting and Notifications. It makes learning new SQL 2005 skills exciting!

5-0 out of 5 stars A very precise book
This is a very good book.It is quite compact and does not waste time and pages on huge examples that would not make any sense at the end.The only issue, at least for me, is that it includes only the new features of the Sql Server.As a result if you are a beginner with SQL Server you need to buy an introductory book before you read this one.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not what I needed
After reading other reviews, I ordered this book. I've worked with SQL Server since version 4.2 and just wanted a resource for new features. I was very disappointed. I found very little of use.

Editorial Review

The birth of new modules for the Perl scripting language is a regular occurrence, and the publication of an O'Reilly book about one of these modules is a sign of coming of age. Perl's DBI module, which facilitates the database-independent operation of Perl, achieves its rite of passage this month with the arrival of Alligator Descartes and Tim Bunce's excellent Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars pretty good book, but so is the CPAN documentation
This is a (the definitive) book on Perl DBI.I swapped book-for-book with a former co-worker for this.I keep it in the office for the newbies.
4-0 out of 5 stars An alright book for the DBI beginner
The database-oriented view of programming has become increasingly popular, and it is of great importance for all serious programmers to understand how to use their favorite language to manipulate the database systems.With the variety of database systems out there, it can be a real challenge to learn what there is to know.For the Perl programmer, however, there is this book on the matter, and it will probably be all you'll need to get started working with database programming in no time.Other reviewers have stated that this is a regurgitation of the docs.This is partially true.But the docs are very bland, and this book presents the information in a much more informative, and easy to read manner.With it, you can begin programming the DBI within a week (a day if you already know SQL and skip the chapter on the Berkley DB system).Recommended for anyone interested in learning how to use Databases with Perl.If you already know the DBI, the book wont be of much help, maybe as a reference, but I'd only pick it up if you don't know it, or are still inexperienced at it.

4-0 out of 5 stars still a valuable reference for multiple databases
This book has been a valuable reference of mine for several years for web database programming projects. I bought the book soon after it was released and continue to use it - sometimes on a daily basis depending upon the project I am currently developing. I realized from the beginning that much of the material in this book came from the online documentation and have still found the book to be useful enough to stay on my A-list of reference materials. Applications like CGIScripter need to utilize up to half a dozen different databases so I have found the reference section on each database be the section I often turn to first. I have not found this info available anywhere in the online documentation. When you program and debug on multiple computers with multiple windows open simultaneously, having a reference book is often more manageable than opening another window on the computer. And for those times when I am struggling with an especially troublesome programming issue, I have found it very helpful to sit in my easy chair with a reference book like the Perl DBI book in order to research the problem. The only reason I am not giving the book 5 stars is that it hasn't been updated in a few years so it doesn't include info on some of the new DBI supported databases like SQLite. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent ASP reference book
This is an excellent companion book to 'Professional Active Server Pages'. Like most O'Reilly Nutshell texts, this book is designed more as a reference aid, rather than a learning text. If you buy both the Professional ASP tome, and this reference guide, you've bought everything you need for ASP.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!
As a student in college, I want to learn some advanced web programming language. I found this book is very helpful for beginner. I also get a discount from couponsky.com when buying this book. This book is not only useful for beginner's studying, you also can take it as reference after you finish the studying. I recommend this book to the beginners in ASP.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good reference and code samples, but...
Somewhat in a rush and while trying to learn ASP I purchased this book.I thought it was aweful and it collected dust for nearly 6 months while I searched elsehwere to boot myself up on ASP.However, now that I'm fairly proficient at ASP, this book has been helpful as a reference.No so much for the actual reference value but becasue the sample code helps put things in perspective. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Are you a beginner to intermediate system administrator? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Jonathan Hassell, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that shows you how Windows Server 2003 and its follow-up release, R2, works and the different ways to administer machines running that operating system.
4-0 out of 5 stars Not for Beginners
I have given this book a 4 star rating as a geek friend who helped me set up my business server read it and said it was pretty good. I am an experienced applications programmer with substantial knowledge of networks and the practicalities of server services. I incorrectly thought this book would almost be like a step-by-step for setting up your own server. The description is correct, each chapter does explain in brief detail what that feature is and then goes into detail of how to set it up. HOWEVER at no point does it explain why you would need the feature or what the acronyms used mean or what is achieved after you add that feature. Personally if you already know about servers, understand the terminology and acronyms and have set up many servers before then my geek friend advises this is a great book. If you are a geek but know little about server terminology and are looking for a step by step book on how to set up a server starting with Server 2003 forget it. If you are not a geek you will be unable to read this book at all, it lost me after only a few paragraphs on every chapter. I gave this book away to my friend.

5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely Clear, Concise, Yet Comprehensive
The new 2nd edition of this book has been completely updated for Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 and release R2, and information on administration using command-line utilities has been added to each chapter.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference
I always like O'Reilly books and are usually what I purchase. The "In A Nutshell" may be misleading to some. Just think of it as "C++ A Language & Library Reference." If you are a beginner looking for a how to, this isn't the one for you. "Thinking in C++" by Bruce Eckel (great book), or "Practical C++ Programming" would be the one a beginner would want. However, when you are ready to explore the inter-details about what C++ classes provides, this would be a good one to add toyour collection. The first half describes C++ in general, while the last half details the language reference. I like how the reference is structured, grouped by the easy to find header declaration at the bottom of the page. Quickly finding what you need is a great feature here. You can only do so much "std::cout << "hi" << std::endl; without a reference and this one covers the missing details. Not for beginners, but an excellent reference.
