    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Excel development book to date
    The depth of Excel development knowledge of the authors can be readily seen a few pages into the Introduction.If you have been frequent visitors to Excel/VBA programming newsgroups like myself, you will notice immediately that all three authors are well-recognized experts in this domain, and have answered countless tricky questions on the topic of Excel/VBA.In my opinion, the particularly valuable chapters include:

    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 Fast and painless way to learn Design Patterns
    This is the first book of the Head First series that I've read, and I have to say that I love it! I think their teaching approach is very very efficient. Each concept is presented to you in many different ways and at the end your brain finds its way to metabolize it. Sometimes it's a picture that catch your attention, sometimes it's just a joke but at the end the concept sticks in your head and is gonna be there forever (at least I hope so :-))) ). Moreover this book is so easy to read. I recommend it to anybody that wants to learn Design Patterns (in Java) in a painless and fast way.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A fun way to learn Patterns
    Patterns are boring. This book makes them fun. How they did it, I'll never know.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Number one!!!
    So far i bought about 30 computer books from amazon. This is the BEST!!!!!! First book that explains something real good but doesn't assume that you (the reader) actualy understood it so they re-explain it and attack the problem from a deferent point of view. I bought steven mezger's design patterns with c# book and read it cover to cover. It doesn't even come close to this piece of art although this is wrriten for java programers. I read "decorator" pattern in mezger's book more than 5 times and didn't actualy understand it. First time i read it in this book and i feel like a design patterns master! I'm thinking a lot about their teaching style. Its briliant!If you realy want to understand design patterns even if you are a c# or c++ programmer, By this book!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Key book on enterprise patterns
    Even if you find enterprise stuff immensely dull, dealing with databases and web pages is a pretty common task, most of the action in software development revolves around it, and who wants to be completely ignorant of the the alphabet soup of various technologies the IT blogs, books and websites are floating in?
    5-0 out of 5 stars A must-read for tech leads and architects
    Martin Fowler is making a name for himself as a luminary in the area of Software Development. He writes very practical books that have a wonderful blend of theory (e.g. design patterns, UML, refactoring etc.) with experience as you can tell he has applied many if not all of these patterns in real-life projects. This book is an exposition into architectural building blocks that will help every architect and tech lead / senior developer build code that is more extensible and easily maintained (among other things). I found the chapters on O/R structural and behavioral patterns particularly enlightening. By reading this book your "toolbox" of solutions rapidly expands and you get to focus more on the business problem at hand rather than infrastructural "plumbing" things (e.g. how do I build my objects when my data is in a relational table). Very highly recommended - and definitely one of the top 5 software books I have *EVER* had the pleasure to read.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Patterns for Business Applications
    I loved this book!It was exactly what I was looking for when I went searching for patterns that would help with a new business application.It provides alternative solutions to the typical implementation problems associated with business systems, both from a design standpoint and from the perspective of the implementation.The alternatives are compared and weighed in light of the execution environment and cost of implementation, with a comparison of advantages and disadvantages, along with Martin's recommendations.I had the feeling that the comparisons and recommendations were made not based purely upon a theoretical optimum, but also based upon practical and real-world experience with these patterns. ...

    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.

    3-0 out of 5 stars An OK Java Book -- Not as Good as Their Other Books
    This book follows the Deitels' standard format and content used in the other two of their books I've read ("C++ How to Program (4th Edition)," and "C How to Program (Fourth Edition)").As before, the teaching method, programming style, most of the examples used, and most of the problems presented are largely the same but have been rewritten to a Java perspective.If you've read and liked any of the Deitels' other books, this book will be fine for you and you'll know pretty much what to expect from it.
    1-0 out of 5 stars I hate this book
    I am a programming newb with a geek streak a lifetime wide. I took a Java class this summer hoping to begin groking the one final frontier of computing that has always eluded me. We used this as the text. As somebody who teaches postsecondary courses in an entirely separate field, I feel this book is not a good first choice for an instructor in comp sci, especially for courses for nonmajors or beginners. The prose is exceedingly dry and longwinded *without real purpose*, and tests even my attention span... which is ordinarily sufficient for a continuous performance of the Ring Cycle. What really hacked me off is the way that the book handles terminology and syntax-- from the very beginning, the code examples often use parallel terms within the code in a way that makes it utterly unclear to the newbie whether they're staring down the barrel of a method name, a parameter/argument, what-have-you, which makes it very difficult to trace the logic of the code and get a good handle on the syntax. I have had far better luck grasping the concepts of Java and programming generally with Beginning Java for Dummies, believe it or not. I am a mature and educated adult actually INTERESTED in this topic and this book was absolutely dreadful to me-- instructors, please do not think you're going to choose this text for the present generation of undergrads and have it be anything but an utter waste of a hundred bucks for them.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone
    While I found this book informative and detailed, I think that may be the main problem with it.It is written in a confused manner that gives the reader too much information on each page.I was constantly feeling bombarded.The information is presented in several different ways on each page and it can get disorienting while reading.That said, the book is very thorough and well researched.I am not sure that it is anywhere worth the price, however.For a third of the money you might consider Java: A Beginner's Guide by Schildt, or one of the O'Reilly books. ...

    I had a degree in Computer Science from a respectable university when I read the book. Still, I learned from the book so much that I realized I barely scratched the surface of OO design before reading it.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to OOAD
    This book is a great introduction to OOAD, agile development, Patterns and UML. It goes from the basic concepts to real world applications. It is has lots of content though but it is worth reading it from beginning to end.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Balanced Real-World Advice For Best Practices Software Development
    I read the first edition of this book years ago when I was making the transition to objects.It was about the tenth book on the subject that I had read, but it was the first one that consistently anticipated the questions that came up when I was actually trying to build something using UML, long after the hype and "objects will save us" party atmosphere had died down.Craig Larman has carefully remembered, or has taught this enough to have been reminded of, the kinds of questions software practitioners actually encounter on the way to building systems using UML.This 3rd edition is twice as big as the first, and it is twice as good only because it is twice as much of Larman's excellent teaching.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Could be 10 pages long
    It does get the point of scrum across.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Lightweight process, built-in feedback
    People aren't very good at seeing into the future. If we do foresee what is going to happen, we often get the "when" of it wrong. And even if we get the what and the when right, we rarely predict the "what else" - all those unpredictable events that inevitably upset any plan. So why are so many software methodologies built so solidly around precise, complex, long-term plans? The only reason such methodologies appear to work at all is that everyone, their fondest proponents included, spend a lot of time running around behind the scenes, bolstering them each time the predictably unpredictable kicks another prop out from under.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A practical book on the scrum process

    5-0 out of 5 stars An approach to this software classic
    "Design Patterns" (GoF = Gang of Four) is a signicant and, in many ways, a difficult work for the modern reader (me) to digest.The material in this book is highly self-referential: to understand a particular design pattern, it is important to be familiar withmany similar, if not all, design patterns.

    5-0 out of 5 stars More than just a great read
    In my mind this book is defintely the most definitive guide to dimensional modeling.Although there are some chapters (the last two that deals with process and other issues, the biggest part of the book is solely about dimensional modeling. Yes the first chapter deals with what it is (in general), why we would like to use dimensional modeling and some myths and caveats.However, from chapter 2 through 12, the book is hand-on.

    This book does contain some good information.The problem, however, is that it is not easy to read or follow.This book contains too many non useful graphics and not enough detailed examples.In other words it's real pretty.At the end of each chapter there are Case Studies for the students.In many cases the book did not give enough information on how to complete them properly.I often found myself searching the internet to find answers.This book might be good for someone that has worked as an IT professional.As a new comer, however, I wouldn't recommend it.I'm going to search for a better book.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great delivery response time.
    The item was shipped promptly and arrived in great condition.Thanks so much for the timely shipping, as the text was used for spring semester at school.

    1-0 out of 5 stars I have not received the product yet
    I think the process is too slow.I have not received the product since I paid it a month ago.Since there's some statement says it would take 6 weeks, I will wait until that day. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Big Thick Book With Little Content: Beware!
    I have more than 15 years of project management experience. I've read this and quite a few other PMP books from cover to cover. Most of the reviews on this page sound like a propaganda to me. This book gives you the impression that it's a big book and must be covering lots of material. But this, in my opinion, is not true. It's big due to the large font and because most of the space on each page is empty.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book to study for the PMP!
    I used this book along with two others. I took the exam before purchasing this book, and I did not pass, but after using this book, I passed with flying colors. The author organizes the material clearly and explains things very well. I wish I had purchased this book the first time!
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Book and clear
    The book is very clear and helps the end user understand all the terms.The online tutorial is good too. However it needed more "situational" examples. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best book on programming ever!
    I am a successful self taught programmer. I have learned C/C++, Java, Perl, and now Ruby all from books and reading other people's code. I have to say this is the best book on programming for a particular language that I have ever read. And I have read quite a few.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for learning
    For learning Ruby, this is a great book.It'll help you learn the basics (although a little coding will help you more than reading will), and then, it'll introduce you to some of the more advanced topics.A great introduction.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must For Ruby and Rails Developers
    This book is a must for both Ruby and Ruby on Rails developers. It is extremely well written and contains much more than a normal programming book. Most importantly it assumes that you're above average intellegence and doesn't pull punches when it comes to complex ideas.

    4-0 out of 5 stars For making managers remember what really matters
    This book is full of information of things that current managers have forgotten. Every new project is wanted done with less money, less time and with higher quality than old projects, putting a lot of pressure to the project team. Managers do things that they believe is good for the project but actually damages the project (and the company) at long term. I have seen many co-workers leave my company for issues like the ones described in this book. Managers and company owners: Please read it!!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars A solid look at the role of people in a company
    This book takes a look at the role people, specifically creative people, play in a company.It offers various insights into management, the environment, and team "building".The second edition also adds a final section with eight new chapters with later insights.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Peopleware + Software = Qualityware
    First of all let me thank people responsible for making this book.

    A truly wonderful book. What else can I say?
    3-0 out of 5 stars Great intro to programming --

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great book to learn MS Project 2003 AND scheduling techniques
    I purchased this book as part of the "Microsoft Office Project 2003 Orange Belt Self Study Package" from IIL (Institute for International Learning). For those who understand the basic concepts of project management, the book is extremely educational as it will teach you the basics of MS Project, as well as various project scheduling techniques that you may not have been aware of.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Reveals Many MSP Issues-but Not for Beginners
    This book will not teach you how to perform 'work planning' (or scheduling) and it will not teach you the basics of how to use MS Project.I have at least 5 thick books that do that, and I consider most of them useless.I have been managing IT projects since the 1980s, and have used MS Project (MSP) since the early 1990s. I have spent many late hours struggling with its confusing and misleading and Poorly documented) functions that do not always do what you expect (or the help/manual says)it will do.I particulary dislike it's seemingly random choice to recalc a critical path, and changes dates and durations based only on resources.In June, my team (an experienced set of IT project managers)took advanced MS Project training from the "International Institute for Learning". All 15 people who attended the training said it was the best MS project training they had ever had!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Solid book
    I bought this book off to help me with scheduling.I found it to be both comprehensive and fun; Using examples at the end of each chapter to reinforce the learning.I tend to refer back to it whenever I'm planning a new project.This book was well worth my time and energy. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A managerial overview of agile methodologies
    A complete overview of the most important agile methodologies available. The authors have done a great job gathering, analyzing and summarizing the most important facts concerning XP, Scrum, Evo and UP. You will be told about pros and cons, success factors, risks to consider and implementation flavors (common customized implementation practices). Just don't get confused about the purpose of the book, because you won't be able to implement the methodologies just by reading it. You'll be into a better position to take a more informed decision about the methodology that best fits your development team. For the implementation process you'll surely need extra references focused on each specific methology.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great summary of agile methods.
    The first portion of the book provides a good and relatively specific overview of the rationale behind agile methods, as compared to waterfall.Great material if you need to write a proposal to move to an agile method.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview to the topic
    I found this to be an excellent review to the topic of agile development.It methodically covers Scrum, XP, UP and Evo, and unlike other computer books, provides detailed references and a bibliography, so you can see how the author got to his conclusions. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A NATIVE WINDOWS C GUIDING ANGEL

    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.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great foundation book
    This is a very good book to build your win32 foundation with. But it is rather outdate if you want to make use of the latest windows os and with vista coming out, a new edition needs to be published. ... Read more
