1-0 out of 5 stars Non-Working Disk
The disk that came with the book is a data disk only, and does not contain the program that created the data.That is why the data disk is not a workable disk, unless you have The Medical Manager installed on your computer!The book is too geared to be used with the Medical Manager Software Program, and is difficult to read it as a stand alone book.
4-0 out of 5 stars Medical Manager review
I am an instructor for the Medical Manager class and have been for over 5 years.I have used almost every version possible with the Medical Manager.This is a fairly good book for students to learn from.As long as the person reads the instructions and then looks at the exercises, they should have NO problems.However, if the person just looks at the exercise and does not read the material, they may have difficulty.Some of the exercise/pictures are different then the actual reading part but not too many.Overall this book makes it fairly simple to learn this program.

1-0 out of 5 stars not very good
Confusing to follow instructions for data entry.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book
I've gotten about 6 chapters into this book and I love it.I've been developing Java for almost 7 years and am currently teaching myself Agile principles and this book comes as a great help.

3-0 out of 5 stars I wanted to like it!
I'm not a beginning programmer, or even an absolute Java novice, so maybe this book isn't really aimed at me.My biggest gripe is that the code snippets continue on and on making the book very poor for anything other than cover-to-cover reading.

5-0 out of 5 stars fantastic
This book is a fantastic primer to not only the java language, but to agile methods and junit as well.The author does a great job of introducing many concepts in a way that is easy to digest without being slow.However, seasoned java programmers may get frustrated with the early chapters that speak to basic java while introducing the bread and butter of junit. This is only for the first 150 pages or so.The information and lessons on refactoring, best practices, and junit are well worth it though.The best part of the book is the author's style.He does not speak down to the reader with overly high vocabulary, or with an "I am all knowing" attitude, but rather he uses a conversational tone with an emphasis on making the topic clear concise and to the point. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference for System Administrators
Power UNIX and Linux users will want to expand their skills. It's inevitable. Some will get frustrated and drop out and some will work their way through it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great reference, full of examples, for all UNIX/Linux/BSD users
At first glance, this book seems like a typical O'Reilly book: a narrow title, rich in material, and is beneficial to a much wider audience than the title reveals. It covers a wide range of system administration subjects and goes way beyond just the essentials.
5-0 out of 5 stars Want to understand Unix and not just use it? This is the book.
This book is for the reader that wants to move beyond the basic, high level overview Unix book and truly understand the Unix system and why it invokes passion from it's fan base. This book could be used by the beginning user, but the novice or casual reader may find this book overwhelming in the sheer level of information it provides. If you are a system administrator, you will find this book is THE book you refer to the most, to the point you may end up keeping this book close to your Unix system at all times. Don't let the 2002 publication date think the book is out of date. The book covers the information that any system administrator will need, which do not change as frequently as the applications that run over the operating system. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent bible for the bumbling novice
First I need to give a nod to "Gunny", the reviewer who convinced me to purchase this book: Thank you!This is truly the best Illustrator guide available for beginners, who need to find their painful path through the inscrutable thicket of Illustrator, who need to get a graphic project done, quickly.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, As Usual
Visual Quick Start Guides and I were introduced in college. Each one I have used is: supremely instructive, light to nonexistent on self absorbed asides (a blessed relief), and meaty...very meaty. The paper isn't glossy, the images aren't in color, you get no adorable photos of the author with their children frolicking on the sands of Southern California. But you get information about how to use Adobe products (and anything else you want to tackle) so that you, in your miserable Midwestern hovel, far from the smiling shores of the Pacific rim, can accomplish your tasks for your demanding and sniffy clients and get paid, and not go to the poor house! Tres cool, no?
5-0 out of 5 stars Complete Reference
This is a reference book, and a very good one. If you're looking for a tutorial-based book, try the HOT series by Lynda Weinman and quit your griping. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Broad and deep coverage
The two books of this series (Core Reference & Advanced Topics) offer broad and deep coverage of ASP.NET.
4-0 out of 5 stars Written by somebody who knows what he is talking about
Basics of .net framework is presented in aclear and lucid style.This book is a joy to read and .by the way there is not much difference in content wise between applied .Net framework programming and this book. My only worry is the speed at which microsoft is pushing .net versions as if there is no tommorrow! [Subsequently the catch up I have to do on reading all this!]

5-0 out of 5 stars FINALLY a book geared at the experienced developer...
If you need to do more than just write sample code for tutorials, then this is the book for you. It provides valuable coverage of the ASP.NET landscape. I learned things about web services I never knew I could do with .NET.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ultimate ESB book
Frankly, I feel that some reviewers misunderstand the purpose of this book. In my opinion, for a SOA focussed professional who needs to know the role of SOA, this book is a gem! Any of us who have had the challenge of explaining messaging technology should be grateful about reading this book.
2-0 out of 5 stars All sales, no sizzle
I was hoping that this book would go through the history of technology leading up to the ESB, discuss how the ESB solves the problems presented by previous solutions and talk about some best practices for building ESBs.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book.
This book is the definitive guide on ESB - excellent coverage on fundamentals, patterns and implementation models. I had read quite a few books around SOA and Web Services, some good, others not so good... but this book really stands out stressing the importance of ESB. The concepts were covered in sufficient details for any aspiring SOA developer. It all gives you a very good idea what you would need to consider when deciding to implement a real-world SOA solution in your organization.

5-0 out of 5 stars Give you clear look of little giant
This book gives you the bird-eye view of the world's renowned photo management software, it has some useful information for amateur photographer who is intended to use iPhoto software, written in plain english. It is little interesting that one-thirds of the entire book contents are cover how to choose the right digital camera and how to take a good shot, of course, you don't have to worry since its another two-thirds of pages are fulled about some kind of "soft" thing, which is about acquire, manage, tag, retouch and share or archive your pictures.

5-0 out of 5 stars JAVA is truly agile, thanks to Anil Hemrajani!
I just read this book, Agile Java Development with Spring, Hibernate and Eclipse, and I find it the best Java book ever written on earth...Never have I read anything as clear and industry-driven as your book..Thanks for the clear explanation!!

3-0 out of 5 stars A great book, too bad you need to read it twice.
I've read a lot of books, of which many are conceptual, academic or technical or just hands-on cookbooks. The problem with "Agile Java Development with..." is that it fits none of the above categories. It feels like an attempt to a hands-on experience kind of book (there's a lot of "Let's get to the action!" phrases and then fails to deliver and just discusses another subject), but Raj delivers mostly academic unstructured comments on every aspect of the subject matter. Don't get me wrong, the book has all the information you need to get started and learn tons more from references Raj gives you, but the problem is: there's no structure to his story telling. For example, In every chapter when he's discussing a subject, he tends to reference/compare to other subjects that haven't been covered yet; he even adds a "(as covered in Chapter X)". Seriously, you actually have to have read the book in order to understand many of the comparisons and references he makes.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good "Agile Java" command line to GUI tutorial using the Spring/Hibernate/Eclipse
Having spent most of my last couple of years using Eclipse based GUI to build Java web apps, I don't have much exposure to doing it at the command line.Mainly I have never used Ant because the GUI tools shelter me from it nicely.But this book did a very good job of starting at the command line and then eventually moving to using Eclipse.It covered a great deal of ground but well enough to whet your appetite to look further into a wide variety of technologies surrounding "Agile Java .." development.

4-0 out of 5 stars Dont go for 3rd edition even though it is a great text book!!!!!!!
The Fourth edition is being scheduled to be released in next month(sep 2006/oct 2006). So my advice is to wait for that textbook of new edition which costs $79.95 in the amazon itself

2-0 out of 5 stars Perfectly confusing!
Too much information presented in a complicated format. It has it all but not a book to learn from. I don't recomend this to those who really want to understand the computer architecture and be able to design and calculate. Very difficult to understand and make sense of problems.

4-0 out of 5 stars Thorough book, tough questions
This book is excellent - I've never seen another computer science book of its type or quality.It is essentially a hardware book for non-EE types; however, the authors literally leave no stone unturned (in chapter 5, for example, they state, "we have only included examples of memory designs that have found their way into commercial implementations").If a computer has ever, in the history of computing, used a particular design approach, that approach is detailed and compared carefully against all other existing approaches.When I first saw the size of the book, I was amazed that anybody could fill so much text with any information (useful or not) - after reading the first few chapters, I was amazed that they could fit so much information into such a relatively small space!

5-0 out of 5 stars A "Must-Have" For Every Modeling Job
Silverston's books (volume 1 and volume 2) are a "must-have" for any data modeler at the onset of a new project. The books are nicely organized by subject-area (for example, "People and Organizations" or "Human Resources" or "Health Care") and the table-of-contents and indicies are rich and very helpful. You can use these books as your main reference books for every question, meeting, inquiry regarding your modeling work (ex: "why did you model currency in this way?" Or "How do you model vendor and client relationships?".
5-0 out of 5 stars The Resource Book is just that
We ordered this book because we are about to begin designing a new information system for our company.Silverston's book addresses many of the issues we found ourselves wrestling with (in designing the CRM portion of the system for instance), and it presents options with the pros and cons of each.

2-0 out of 5 stars Two surprises I didn't like
The text of this book was generally good - although it seemed padded out with a massive listing of model metadata.The book comes with a CD.The first surprise was, the CD does not include the Data Definition Language (DDL) for its sample models... there's an extra cost for that.My question to the publisher would be, what good is the CD you provide for free?

Editorial Review

PHP and MySQL go hand in hand; the former has been carefully adapted, through the efforts of the open-source community, to the latter. For situations that require dynamic content but don't merit the complexity and development time of Java or .NET enterprise applications, the PHP language and the MySQL database server fit the bill perfectly. That's the point Hugh Williams and David Lane make in Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly poor index
I'm new to PHP and MySQL, but a programmer for over 3 decades. I'm customizing some PHP code, using code examples for ideas. When I (a) see something I want to understand better or (b) want to find the PHP analog for basic functions, I naturally turn to the index to try to find the information I need. However, I found the index very disappointing because of what it doesn't have. For example, simple and basic keywords are not in the index: "comment", "logical operator", "and", "or", etc. I'm going to have order a different book as a PHP reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best starting point to php and mysql
I bought this book with the hope I could learn just enought to get me started with web application development. I only hadlittle programming experience at that time, I I didn't even have any experience with databases. Well. This book was the perfect introduction to web applications. From security to authentication, from php basics to multi-table join sql queries, this book got me into this world, and I appreciate it so much because I am working now in web development, thanks to what I learned from here.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction Book & Reference
This book is an excellent introduction to PHP, MySQL, and the interaction of the two. It has a few chapters introducing PHP, then a few introducing MySQL, and then walks through the steps necessaryto build a functioning dynamic website. They also include an elaborate and detailed case study of a Winestore application the author's developed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best choice for advanced data modeling.
If you will got this book, you will got perfect template model.

5-0 out of 5 stars Is it worth buying a book for only one chapter?
Yes, it is. Because the other chapters have all sorts of useful content as well. This book covers Manufacturing, Telecommunications, Health Care, Insurance, Financial Services, Professional Services, Travel, and e-Commerce. Most companies, even if they aren't in those sectors, use the services of companies that are (or may do a little bit of them - offer insurance on their products, for example), and if you need to include these areas in your model, in more detail than was covered in volume 1 (the core Universal Data Model book), then this is the place to start. If you are in one of these areas, then the specific chapter has a lot of useful stuff (I have worked in Travel, Telecommunications and Professional Services), but it is well worth checking out the other models for ideas that can be re-used in your area.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Time Saver!
The industry models defined in volume 2 have greatly accelerated our data warehouse/mart projects. We have used many of the pre-defined industry models for both internal and external projects. Again, a great time saver allowing us to "jump-start" our data projects. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The First VSTS Book You Should Read
This book is a terrific high to mid level introduction to Visual Studio Team System, Microsoft Solutions Framework, and the overall philosophies and strategies behind Microsoft's ambitious undertaking. It provides terrific VSTS coverage, but it's also one the best overviews of modern software development approaches available today.
5-0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended
Gives a nice peek into the "why" as opposed to the "how". I have read all the VSTS books that are out there right now and I appriciated this one very much. It was an easy read, but very informative.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wealth of theory and practices
This book provides wealth of theory and practices for software development. It throughly explained the ideas behind Visual Studio Team Studio, just like the author said, it's not a how-to book, but will let you know why VSTS provides those functionalities, and what benefit would you get if you follow the practices.

5-0 out of 5 stars Code without tests is legacy code.
This book is basically a comprehensive overview of how to get your legacy code into a proper test harness by breaking dependencies (given various limitations of legacy systems).I can't think of any better way to frighten your colleagues into beginning TDD than reading this book.Plain and simple...are you writing code without tests (i.e. are you writing legacy code)?If you've ever worked or expect to work with legacy systems (which should be a majority of us)...then you need this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars In a class by itself
I've never read a technical book quite like this one. The author has distilled several years worth of experience into one highly cohesive and detailed book. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Ian Sommerville's Software Engineering
A great introductory book on software engineering. It gives you a holistic view of software engineering, but lacks in details. It won't teach you how to draw ER diagrams but it will tell you what they are.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good introduction and explanation of software engineering
Overview of Software Engineering, with a brief explanation of software process and project management. It mainly covers the design issue and introduces the method of handling critical system.

1-0 out of 5 stars Rather Cursory
Sommerville undoubtedly owns great knowledge over the topic. Unfortunately he has difficulties to write monolithicly. Most of the time he is beating around the bush. The examples he uses to explain the different topics are rather unusual and do not help to better understand what the techniques are all about.

4-0 out of 5 stars Is a good book
Is a nice book, it hasn't got many advanced stuff like backups or problems solutions but is a good book for people just become a middle or new postgresql user.

5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive coverage
This is the only PostgreSQL book that I know of that covers writing functions and triggers in PL/pgSQL with any level of detail.There is also a very detailed section on performace monitoring and tuning.Overall, the best book you can get on PostgreSQL administration.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for beginners
This is a great way to get started with postgreSQL or for learning databases in general.Each sentence actually makes sense and doesn't require referencing other texts like so many other technical books.The book is very thorough so don't let the size intimidate you.I would recommend this book to anyone interested in starting their own database project. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Closing the communication gap...
Facilitating communication among businesspeople and software developers in the preparation of acceptance tests is the mail goal of Fit, which also helps automate those tests. A tabular representation of tests provides the common language whose clarity and precision are key to improving communication between technical and non-technical people. As Dave Thomas says, Fit helps closing the "gap between the software that [is] written and the software the user [wants]".
4-0 out of 5 stars Good, not exactly great.
The first 175 pages of the book seem devoted to convincing management that the tool is worth using. The next 75 or so pages give details on writing tests. There are about 45 pages of the programmer's perspective. The rest of the book mainly deals with extending the system in ways that most people won't bother with. Finally there is a very brief word on non-Java tests that simply says to refer to the web sites.
3-0 out of 5 stars Better structured than the online docu
The book describes in detail how to use Fitnesse for the combination of requirements management and automated testing. Though this is interesting, the book does not offer more information than the online docu to fitnesse (though certainly in a better structured way, as the structure of the online docu is a nightmare).
