5-0 out of 5 stars This Book Serves Its Purpose
I am prompted to write this review owing to the number of negative comments I have seen. I personally read the book and I found it very informative and easy to understand. Axapta is a huge application and it is not very easy to understand, just as how math is a huge and deep topic. However, learning math helps if you understand the fundamental topics. If you miss the fundamentals God help you.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great book - get a copy today.
This is an excellent book.It is comprehensive and well written.This book should be read by anyone who is either considering purchasing Dynamics AX or has recently purchased the product.All new users will learn a great deal of information from this book.In fact, all good resellers of Dynamics AX should include a copy of this book at no charge with a sales quote to a potential customer.If I had this book two years ago, I could have saved my company several thousands of dollars in consulting fees alone.This book is an excellent `jump start' to gain overall Axapta knowledge, and is a great value for the money.This book will become a `must read' for all Dynamics AX implementers.

3-0 out of 5 stars Trying hard to cover everything... but....
At first glance the book looks very impressive and promising; however you don't have to read many pages before the cold truth of the authors' dilemma hits you. Covering a product as huge as Axapta in less than 500 pages is impossible, so choosing the right level of detail is vital. The authors chose the same approach as the online documentation shipping with the product. They describe in a clear and easy digestible language the most important forms in great detail. The online documentation has rightfully been accused of not providing procedural information (Step-by-step descriptions of how to accomplish tasks spanning multiple forms) or overview information (How everything ties together). Unfortunately this book does not provide that information either. Since the page count is limited one could have hoped non-trivial information was prioritized. That isn't the case. This book is however more than just a rewrite of the online documentation. It contains many valuable and interesting insights where appropriate. Don't expect this book to give you a lot of new information; but it gives you the opportunity to bring it all to the beach.

4-0 out of 5 stars Well worth to read.
This book is a supplement to two books Domain Driven Design by Eric Evans and Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture by Martin Fowler.
4-0 out of 5 stars an education in TDD and DDD
The title is spot-on. It takes the now well promulgated ideas of Domain Driven Design and Test Driven Development and shows how you might apply these to coding under C# and .NET. Prior to this book, those ideas had seen their biggest explanations probably for C++ and Java. To C# programmers, the book can be very timely.
4-0 out of 5 stars Unifying Tome for Domain Driven Design and Implementation with .NET
I was surprised that this book slipped under my radar for almost 3 months. I've been on the lookout for just such a unifying tome of knowledge that relates patterns and domain-driven design (DDD) to a practical .NET example for quite some while. The book delivers well on its promises, significantly surpassing the only other real competitor, Foundations of Object-Oriented Programming Using .NET 2.0 Patterns. The pros and cons, as I see them, are outlined below:

5-0 out of 5 stars Foremost book in the field
I had the previous version of this book as my text at USC. This version is a huge improvement over the last one. This one covers all the new advances and adds emphasis on the use of coding to communications channels. A complaint I had of the last version was that it under-emphasized coding gains and Eb/N0 vs. BER performance figures. This book has overcome many of those difficulties. It is still a bit ponderous in places but then it is the only book that covers the material in this much detail, truly a Bible of the field. It is a great graduate level text and a must-have book for any comm engineer. Charan Langton complextoreal.com

5-0 out of 5 stars very useful for both beginners and experts
a very detailed book for getting into Galois field arithmetics, cyclic codes, convolutional codes, ... As a very beginner I had no big problems understanding the content. I am not the type of guy who could understandjust by reading the theory - this book gives a lot of very useful examples,so you could call it fun reading it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent applications-based approach to Error Correction
Lin and Costello produced an excellent text which is targeted towardsengineers as opposed to mathematicians. The mathematics behind errorcorrection can be extremely intensive and, with other texts, I quicklybecome lost in complex proofs. Lin and Costello present error correction inmethod, with plenty of good examples, which those who need to know how toapply it can understand and the gory details of the theory are not asimportant. I used this book as my introduction to error correction and itcontinues to be a great reference book. The only drawback in it is since itwas published in '82, it stops at convolutional coding and does not covertrellis-coded modulation or turbo codes. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth the buy!
I have not found such a comprehensive book for design of six sigma. I started using this book for advanced experimental design and taguchi methods, but ended understanding the complete roadmap for design of six sigma. The systems approach allows an enthusiast reader to start anywhere, without having to spend time refering back to earlier chapters. The relatively newer trends as TRIZ and axiomatic design have also been nicely dealt with.5-0 out of 5 stars A book serves all your needs
This is an outstanding DFSS book for production development. It contains integrated information and some of which you could hardly find anywhere else, thus with one book in hand, you have all the tools to get to your destination. This is also a easy to read book providing the reader with a solid understanding- Concepts are clearly defined, real world examples/ case studies are fully described and the chapters are well organized. It can serve as a textbook for students/beginners and also can serve as a handbook for experienced engineers. 3-0 out of 5 stars Full of information and errors
This is a book with a lot of information. Each chapter can be used as a starting point for a specific six sigma technique. However, this is the worst edited book I have ever read. You can hardly find one page without errors/typos. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book with excellent coverage of multithreaded programming
The best thing about this book, in my opinion, is numerous comparisons that Mr. Hart makes between UNIX and Windows.As a recent Computer Science graduate, all of my system programming experience was in a UNIX environment. (My university used that OS for programming assignment exclusively.)After graduating, however, I found myself in a job that uses Windows.From school, I was familiar with the things I needed to do - parallel programming, sockets, services, but I had no idea how to actually implement such things in Windows.Mr. Hart's direct comparisons to UNIX gave me a frame of reference that made it easier for me to learn the subject matter quicker.
3-0 out of 5 stars Touches on in depth issues of win32 programming
Nice book that touches on in depth issues of win32 programming such as file handling, registry, memory issues, etc.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't design a win32 system model without this book

5-0 out of 5 stars a work still in progress, but quite intriguing
WCF is a very promising new technology being put out by Microsoft. You should take note that it is still actively a work in progress. Made clear both by the text in the book and by postings from other reviewers and the authors. There is indeed a potential drawback, inasmuch as specific coding details may get obsoleted by an eventual stable production release. But before you are tempted to turn away, keep in mind that the very title cover of the book says "Beta Edition". The advantage is an early, informal look at WCF.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good Initial Perspective on WCF
Gives a good MSFT perspective on WCF and the HOWTO get up & running with WCF.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very well written book
This a very well written step by step guide to WCF. Though the book does not reflect the changes in June CTP, it presents the concepts in a nice, easy to understand manner. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Dissappointing. Good subject, poorly covered.
I was very disappointed with this book. It covers a very useful subject, but it is not well written. Almost every section was done better in other books covering the same material. It will be hard to prove how bad this book is, since on the surface everything seems to be there. However, as somebody who have read many books on this subject it was painful to read this one. It is more like a cut and paste job putting together well-known material without any new insights.5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book for Beginner and Experienced Engineers
Well organized book that does not skip on details. It explains in a clear and concise manner transmission line issues such as reflections, the why's and how's of matching impedance, and crosstalk among others.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book !
Great explanations, with good examples.It is a very easy and interesting read, at the same time going into needed detail of high speed digital signalling issues.My course uses Digital Systems Engineering by Dally as text, but I find myself reading this book instead to get a better understanding, as it is clearer and better organized.Coming in really handy for my upcoming exam review! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars A very bad book
This book doesn't cost its money.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book worked for me
I used this book, and one other, to take and pass the Oracle Certified Professional exam (OCP).The other book I used was Oracle Press' PL/SQL Program Units Exam Guide, which focuses just on the second exam.This book covers all of the exams, but the second exam is especially difficult, and a friend recommended that one for that exam specifically.2-0 out of 5 stars Too basic
Good book for a beginner (this is an excellent intro to SQL and PL/SQL), but not enough depth for the exams.It covers all the necessary areas, but barely skims the surface on numerous important topics.I recommend the Sybex book (even though it's a little dry).For each test, I'd start with this book and then move on to another text; that should be all you need to pass the exams.Be sure to PRACTICE; that's by far the most important element of success. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A great starter guide to writing a compiler
I recently used this book to supplement the Dragon book in a Compilers course. I found this book so much easier to read and understand. They do a great job of laying out the basics and introducing you to compiler design.
1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible for Starters
This book was the textbook for an undergraduate course on compilers.Let me make it short:I never read it after reading the first chapter.The authors may be top experts on compilers but they shouldn't be writing books. Another book written in 1982 (compilers, principles, techniques and tools) saved my life for this class.If you are a beginner "do not buy this book".

This is really a super compiler text. It is also one of the most recent compiler books you can buy.

This book does not cover design of the interface well at all.5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Practicle tips
This book was the best out of several others that I have read realted to usability engineering or UCD. It had several practical examples and stories attached to each topic. Its excellent for starter as well as proffesionals who are working at companies and have to justify several things. Several formates for reports and other resources are available for conducting a good Users and Task Analysis. More so its really easy and interesting to read with all the stories and the diagrams.

5-0 out of 5 stars Read it before you need it.
If there is one strong message in this book, it is: Go talk to the people who will use your product. It's an important message. Software designers and writers spend too much time with each other developing clever tricks, while the poor user, often left to self-train with a poorly written manual, gives up in frustration. The authors follow their own advice--in addition to telling you how to conduct a site visit to the end users, there are clear instructions (based on experience) on planning a visit, structuring questions, how to make the site visit useful for both the analyzers and the users, and figuring out what the user said and what it means about the product.There are reminders about release forms and examples of the forms themselves.Case studies help make the points clear and undestandable. A thoroughly readable book in clear and simple language that can be started anywhere for quick help, or read cover to cover for a complete course. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A bit dated in a few spots, but quite good.
This is Martin Fowler's first book, published in 1997. The book is divided into two large sections.
5-0 out of 5 stars The only "practical" book on deciding which design to use
What I am nearly always missing when reading about design (esp. when sifting through design case studies) is the path that lead to a design. The weighing of arguments that made the author/designer choose the solution at hand. The context and the "drivers". Fowler is the only one achieving this: offering different solutions and discussing their advantages and disadvanteges. Yes he dives deep and goes into abstract concepts, but sometimes solutions only differ from an abstract viewpoint. You need quite some understanding of design principles, to (i) understand the book and (ii) be a good designer.
5-0 out of 5 stars Truly Unique, Extremely Valuable Entry
Kind of funny, reading the reviews here makes it clear that this book is something of a sleeper, it has not gotten the exposure that a lot of the other pillars of the pattern community have. I think the reason is that people may glance at it and think that it is too domain-specific. In fact, this book does a lot of great things, it is a meditation on some crucial OO modeling issues.

1-0 out of 5 stars A very poor book on EA
About 4 pages of this book concern Zachman.The rest of the book largely avoids any enterprise architecture topic.
1-0 out of 5 stars The title is misleading. The book is NOT a practical guide to Enterprise Architecture
The title 'A Practical Guide to Enterprise Architecture' led me to expect a book that dealt with the processes, challenges and techniques for creating an ENTERPRISE architecture. It does not. The book is about various technology frameworks. The Contents lists Systems Architectures, Solution Architectures and Service Oriented Architectures but not Enterprise Architecture. Enterprise Architecture is skimmed over in the Preface. The book barely touches on Zachman and Spewak and Hill. It ignores FEAF, TEAF, TOGAF, PERA, C4ISR, the Clinger-Cohen Act and other ENTERPRISE stuff completely. Enough said. Whatever this book is, is it is NOT a practical guide to ENTERPRISE Architecture. The book may be of use to technical architects designing solution-frameworks to support an Enterprise Architecture.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Enterprise Architecture Book
I picked up this book today to get a some input on a pending Enterprise Architecture effort I am pursuing for a large organization.This book blows me away with a straight forward evaluation of a number of enterprise architecture approaches.It gives examples of methods to sell enterprise architectures to customer organizations.One of the greatest difficulties in enterprise architecture is communicating its value to lay people.This book does a great job of spelling things out in simple English.I am an experienced Enterprise Architect.I have been in the field for about 5 years.This book is practical and provides a number of excellent ideas for people in the trenches trying to solve true enterprise problems that span process, data, information, technology, applications/systems, and information assurance architectures.This book is a must have for practicing Enterprise Architects.This is a practical guide and not a pseudo-intellectual academic treatise. This gets 5 stars from me. Bravo! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Recipe for Programming
This book opened my eyes.I'd finished a Ph.D. in computer science, and had a decent exposure to quite a few programming languages and paradigms, before coming across this book.I was surprised to start working through this introductory book, and find myself learning new things!The book transformed my approach to programming.
5-0 out of 5 stars Everyone should learn to design programs
As a programming do-it-yourselfer I've had many conflicting responses to this text -- it's didactic style, its attention to detail, its sometimes patronizing tone, its rigor and broad scope and at the same time its immersion in minutia and quiddities I have never encountered in 'computer books' I had ever perused. Perhaps it's my liberal arts background, or love 'em/hate 'em sensitivity to all those broad stiff-spined textbooks I had carried in back-packs since childhood, combined with a disdain for the authoritative stilted style these educators exude -- despite their patent love of their subject. I felt at once both patronized and condescended to.5-0 out of 5 stars The joy of learn programming
Great book! I liked the way the author approaches how to begin designing programs. I am half-way through the book and I am finding it very entertaining. Yeap! I recommend this book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Isidori's Magnum Opus
This is simply the best book written on nonlinear control theory.The contents form the basis for feedback linearization techniques, nonlinear observers, sliding mode control, understanding relative degree, nonminimum phase systems, exact linearization, and a host of other topics.A careful reading of this book will provide vast rewards.A fantastic book. ...

Editorial Review

VHDL may sound like a new Internet language, but it really stands for VHSIC (Very High Speed Integrated Circuit) Hardware Definition Language. VHDL borrows ideas from software engineering (architectural, behavior, and formal models, as well as modular design) and is used to design today's custom integrated circuits, from cell phones to microwave ovens and even CPUs. Peter Ashenden's Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Book for Behavioral VHDL, Not for Synthesis
This book goes into great detail on variable typing, subtyping, and all aspects of behavioral modeling.It's extremely detailed and thourough.If you just want to learn the intricacies of VHDL and only expect to write test benches and behavioral models, this is definitely the book for you.If you're looking for a practical book that will help you to write synthesizable code, look somewhere else.The book does have a 17-page appendix on synthesis, but that's pretty much it.All the "case studies" are behavioral, even the RTL models.

4-0 out of 5 stars About as good as it will get it appears...
VHDL is used for a wide variety of things - almost none of them what VHDL was every really meant for.This makes finding a useful text a reference a significant chore.Ashenden sometimes seems to move at a snail's pace - the text is written more as a tutorial than a reference.In some ways this is good, really the syntax of VHDL and the constructs are quite simple.His repeated examples make it clear there really isn't much magic going on.Personally I wish the book was more directed at synthesis - because that's what I use it for - but this text is more directed at the language.So some supplementing of the text will be necessary.
4-0 out of 5 stars The migration path for programmers
Too many VHDL books dilute their point by trying to double as logic design texts. The problem is that VHDL is a complex (or "rich") language, and needs an intense focus of its own. This book does the best job I've seen.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars An excellent text book, well written and informative
This was the text for an OS course that I took for my Masters.We had to implement 11 significant OS features for Minix (e.g. floppy disk cache, VGA driver, interprocess communication server,...) -- bugs were unacceptable (i.e. fail), as OSs must work.This class was 4 times more work that an other class I took for my Masters but I learned so much.I was already a very experienced Unix programmer when I took this, so I found it facinating to finally see what was under the hood (Minix/Unix is surprisingly small an compact -- very elegant).Tanenbaum is a real authority on the subject of operating systems and has a very engaging style.Probably the best computer science text book that I have read (I read this cover to cover, not just scanning but really reading).There is room for improvement though: the format could benefit from being updated, I had to use a lot of high-lighter.Clearer separation and indexing of key theories and sections would help.The OS basics are still relevant today (and could perhaps benefit from some expansion/clarification). I believe Tanenbaum has brought out new books since that go into some more contemporary / more advance areas.

2-0 out of 5 stars Overrated
The authors of this text assume too much. This pretty much sums up the entirety of the work, which is too technical to make a good introductory text and too simple to make a good advanced discussion of operating systems.5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book and Source Code Complete Introduction to OS
This is another of Tannenbaums great books. It is delightful to read his books. It deepens your understanding and gives you a feeling of happiness at the same time.Read more
