4-0 out of 5 stars Good first book on the subject of simulating natural phenomena
This is a good introductory textbook for college undergraduate mathematics and computer science students that attempts to combine the theory of computation with some mathematical concepts and in the end, manages to model virtual life. To be specific, the book is built around the five pillars of Computation, Fractals, Chaos, Complex Systems, and Adaptation. There are better books on all of these subjects, but few others do such a good job of tying together key concepts from each discipline into the one theme of this book. However, there is only enough room to outline the included subjects rather than investigate them thoroughly.
5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting Topics
Good book, [X] bucks is a bargain, it's worth twice that easily. 5-0 out of 5 stars Real "How Nature Works". Already is "Legend in the Making."
I recently became interested a lot in Nature. Especially, being someone in the field of Computer Science, the computational aspect. And this book is by far one of my favourite among all the "How Nature Works" kind of books I've read.Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Quantity not Quality
I am a graduate student and I'm using this book for a class.The book is very theoretical with too few examples.At first it seems that the book was written for a novice with very little computer science background since the author has the need to explain the core vocabulary in computer science.That is not the case as the later chapters get into more advanced topics, but lack the proper explanation.The book presents many test patterns but fails to include examples which would guide one in developing a test suites with the presented patterns.Some of the examples that are provided include mistakes which would misguide a novice learner.The reading is frustrating at times due to lack of appropriate explanations.As the subject of this review states, it seems the author wanted to write a really lengthy book not giving enough attention to the quality of the material presented.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have
I have several books on software testing, but none of them provides the comprehensive, in-depth coverage of testing that this book provides.No software developer or test engineer working with OO techniques should be about it!

3-0 out of 5 stars A bit too much of theory..
I bought this book after reading the previous reviews. I am a QA engineer working in OO systems, and I must say that I did not find this book to all that great. It is a good book, but I found it to be a bit theoretical. I would have welcomed more practical tips say on how to do performance testing on multitier systems, how do you adapt these concepts on hybrid systems etc. ... Read more

This all-encompassing TCP/IP text defines completeness with its 1,000-plus pages and hundreds of configuration screens, exercises, charts, tables, and references. Though initially overwhelming, such thoroughness is what's demanded of those who ultimately pass the Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) exam, the bruising test for which Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Routing TCP/IP Volume I Still Awesome and relevant!!!
I recently purchased this book based on the rave reviews even with an updated second edition off the press. I can honestly say that this book is Awesome in detail and explanation and is still extremely relevant to understanding the how too's and processes involved in routing tcp/ip. The most amazing feature about this book is how well explained and the book makes topics that would normally seem dificult or confusing easily understood, in other words grandma could learn how routing tcp/ip works from reading this book!
5-0 out of 5 stars The best way to understand the world of IGPs
If any book was ever considered as the MUST HAVE BIBLE for Interior Routing Protocols - then Jeff Doyle's first effort on IGPs is THE book (how many clich�'s do you want in one sentence)!!The book goes through at a very even pace - dissecting and describing the majority of both open-standard IGPs (OSPF, RIP and a little on ISIS) and Cisco-proprietary IGPs (IGRP and it's beefier brother - EIGRP).The book also includes some invaluable appendixes - including tutorials on working with Binary and hex.

1-0 out of 5 stars Unsynthesizable
This is the WORST VHDL book there is.Don't buy this book if you plan to synthesize your code.The book looks good, but many examples are just plain wrong.This book is flamed in the industry.5-0 out of 5 stars I appreciate Mr. Bhasker's book.
I am a graduate student doing my Major in digital VLSI design. I strongly urge people to read the book written by Mr. Jayaram Bhasker on VHDL.I feel that there are no prerequisites for reading this. The main highlight of the book is the simplicity with whichits written. The author has really taken pains to make students understanddifficult ideas with ease.The other most striking feature are ample signal wave diagrams which YOU DONT FIND IN ANY OTHER BOOKS. My favorite chapter is the tutorial in Chapter2 and the last chapter on STATE MACHINES. 5-0 out of 5 stars Nicely Organized for a "Kick Start Learning."
This book nicely starts with the simple code writing and progresses to more complex topics in VHDL.The good thing is the author explained almost every topic with good clarity and has well connected different topics.I hope the next edition comes with more examples on test bench. A very keen information about the different types of modelling also helps to have a good attacking style for a sound digital designing. I would recommend this book to any beginner and there is no doubt this book is well fragmented with techniques about VHDL coding almost in every page. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Bought this to complete the series...
I don't intend to read this book from front to back (well maybe one day if I get really bored) but I think this book does a very good job explaining the algorithm without getting obsessed with overly formal mathematical games.In my opinion the graphs are the most important part of the series, since these are the algorithms and data structures that usually AREN'T included in a programming language's libraries; STL for example.You will find many of these topics in a mathematics and statistics program (how I first encountered them) so the book does get mathematical, but out of necessity.
3-0 out of 5 stars Best of thebunch
I had to teach this course and must see it is the pick of the books I have seen on this subject though it is far from ideal. Why can't these people use meaningful variable names and comment the code. Is it the authors intent to teach bad programming practice.

3-0 out of 5 stars good content - badly written
The content of the book is obviously interesting for people starting a help desk or any IT service department. I would just like to stress that it is badly written. Typical I-don't-have-much-to-say-but-I-will-say-it-in-200-pages syndrom. Example? p36 "Problem can be discovered either before or after they occur" Waow, that's information! p35 "Problem identification is simply the processes, methods, and tools used by the service center to indentify a problem". Hey M Walker, never learnt one should not use a word in its own definition?5-0 out of 5 stars Complete Guide to Service Center Processes
This is a great book for anyone involved in help desk or service center activities.I recommend this book for all IT professionals involved with production systems or anyone interested in IT methodology.This book gives the reader an appreciation for the documented processes and documentation that must be in place for a successful help desk venture.5-0 out of 5 stars Unique book that fills a gap in service delivery literature
This book does, indeed, represent the first of its kind to extend problem management from a help desk function to an enterprise-wide process.Moreover, it contains some of the best practices and processes I have ever seen in print.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Jump Start your SOA development with Ora BPEL
I wish this book was release a few months before as it would have saved me a lot of time and effort, with its real life examples for BPEL process implementations its a great book to have for anyone who is a new or regular user of OraBPEL.
5-0 out of 5 stars Useful Addition to developers bookshelf
This book, a collection of real world BPEL patterns is a must for any budding or experienced BPEL developer.My company are a software development company specialising in SOA solutions.We have deployed a number for successful SOA projects with BPEL, running on the Oracle BPEL engine, being the cornerstone technology on these projects. This book, along with associated tutorials, has been a key factor in achieving this success - giving us a headstart for some of the key patterns you will need in any BPEL project.It has saved us many days in our R&D lab by pointing us to the code we require for standard tasks required in our BPEL process - these patterns are an excellent addition to any BPEL teams developer standards and guidelines. The book is intuitive to follow, leading the developer you through cases with workable examples that you can build and deploy in your own environment.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very useful for the Architects who are architecting SOA solution using Oracle BPEL Process Manager
Many of our clients are migrating from traditional Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) to the standard based SOA. This book has ten real-world case studies, which helped me to architect the solutions. Sometimes I use this book as best practices of Oracle BPEL-PM .

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!
This is the excellent book for everyone who wants to study statistics using SPSS software. Easy to read, very friendly, lots of examples and explanations. Wonderful sense of humor (can you believe it in a book on statistics?). I recommend it to everyone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Valuable resource
I teach Research Methods at a Canadian university and this book is an incredibly valuable resource. Some books are just about statistics theory, others are just how-to guides. This book does both and connects the theory with SPSS. It has lots of hands-on examples that you can work through with the CD-ROM. I have found it to be extremely useful as a reference, for learning new techniques, and for figuring out how to teach students a particular statistical concept or application with SPSS. I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to professors, graduate students, or anyone else planning on using SPSS.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simple overview of stats and how to use the software
SPSS is a popular software package used by graduate students in the social sciences, since it's a user-friendly software unlike some of the more complicated packages like SAS or Minitab that require programming language and a very sound understanding of statistics before you use them. Read more

Took the Base SAS Certification exam 2 weeks back and got through it successfully. Regarding test preparation me and my friend went through the concepts of this book once and revised the book 3 times. We spent 2 weeks for reading and one week for revising.
3-0 out of 5 stars Happy with the book but not the CD-ROM
I have recently purchased this book and still reading it. My only disappointment is the CD-ROM, I didn't know we need to have the SAS software in order to use the CD-ROM. So I can only read the book but can't use the CD-ROM.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book for SAS Certification
This book is best for clearing the Base SAS Certification exam, as it covers all the syllabus for the exam. Every thing that comes in the Exam is covered by this book. The best part is that it improves your concept of PDV(Program Data Vector)i.e. it tells you how SAS processes the programs in the back end. This is the best book for beginners and I recomend that they should start with this book only.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book--Ideal for self-study
I highly recommend this book if you are interested in learning about computer science. The book is organized around the idea of building a computer from the fundamental logic gates up--starting with the hardware (combinational logic gates, arithmetic logic units, sequential logic gates, the CPU and memory) and then through the software hierarchy (starting with the machine language, and working up through the assembler, a virtual machine, a compiler for a high-level language, and an operating system). As a "by-product," one learns, by very relevant examples, many fundamental concepts of computer science.
4-0 out of 5 stars spans hardware and software
As computers have gotten more powerful, the field of computer science has split into two. One deals with hardware design, the other with software. The problem is that a student can effectively major mostly in one of these fields, without enough of an appreciation of its counterpart.

3-0 out of 5 stars Some interesting parts, but mostly a collection of 'tricks'.
This book covers many facets of the task of creating testbenches.However, it doesn't seem to follow a very well thought out plan, and there are holes in the coverage.
4-0 out of 5 stars Perhaps he should say this is how to make a standard cell
In hardware development groups, the author points out that by 2000, from 60-80% of effort was in verification. But texts on VHDL rarely emphasise this. Instead, far more time is devoted to design. The creative focus is on the latter. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than any other book, or any phone support from Microsoft
I have used this comprehensive users guide as my support for any and all issues regarding development of the sharepoint site.Online blogs didn't help.Microsoft phone support didn't help.This book helps.It has a description of every aspect of the sharepoint system and is just unbelievably helpful.This book has already paid for itself in terms of time and money saved.GREAT! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of Garbage
Understand firstly that this book is old.Wait, one more time, OLD.The amusing thing is one of the authors still tries to shine light on this trash and use it to try and sell security work for the joke of a practice he runs.Give me a b-a-reak.Fed up with with trash like this on a market.If you're dumb enough to buy this book becuz the nuklehead convinced you it was cutting edge - then back slowly away from the book, run it through a shredder and then stick in your cats litter box.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good only if you're a newbie
This book is good ONLY if you're a newbie. If you're in the field, save you're money and buy something with some teeth to it.Such as, Hacking Exposed.The title itself is very misleading.There is no Pen testing.Unless you get all the tools they talk about and launch an attack.The authors are also a little biased on their choices of tools.I can think of better tools to use, in some situation, then what they suggest.All-in-all, it's just an OK book, if you're new...really new.

4-0 out of 5 stars Review from a first-year computer science perspective
Most of the reviewers for this text so far seem to be more experienced programmers or computer scientists. So I am writing this review to give a different perspective.
2-0 out of 5 stars Eh
This book takes an interesting topic like functional programming and makes it hideously boring.In retrospect, I wish I'd bought Hudak's book instead.I read a review claiming that Mr. Thompson's book was better for newcomers to Haskell than Mr. Hudak's.I don't know where this idea came from; I later borrowed Hudak's "Haskell School of Expression" and found it to be more informative and faster-paced than this book.I give it two stars only because it is useful as a reference.If you're looking to learn Haskell and do cool things with it, get School of Expression instead.

2-0 out of 5 stars disappointing potpourri of foodle-shnoodle
Perhaps I should forgive Thompson his tender age for the grievous philosophic error he commits as soon as he puts pen to paper, to wit, neither is functional programming new nor is Haskell its foremost exemplar. (Curiously, one Dr. Haskell was my orthodontist when I was a little boy, which rang a soft little bell deep in my cerebrum.) As far as functional programming is concerned, LISP is the way, the truth, and the light. Haskell may do more by way of notational "syntactic sugar" than LISP--with certainty, it can be hard to express yourself graphically when limited to concretely mathematically grounded notations [LISP = L(ots) of I(ncredibly) S(tupid) P(arentheses)]. Notwithstanding, I contend that the more difficult exercises that Thompson introduces--putatively as a vehicle for showcasing the brilliance of Haskell--point in quite the opposite direction. For LISP allows, nay encourages, parallel top-down/bottom-up development whereby you carefully extend the language to create, shall we say, a meta-4GL atop which to code your application, whereas Haskell will have none of this: it is a run-of-the-mill 3GL with some concepts and quirks that may be unfamiliar to the less sophisticated programmer, nor less, nor more. Nay, nay, I speedily toss Haskell into the basket that houses nearly every new language that comes down the pike: a few new tidbits perhaps; a more tersely expressed concept perchance; but nothing new to the sophisticate whose grasp of computer language (not to mention compuer languageS) extends beyond the ALGOL family (and, by extension, its somewhat more capable analogues, e.g., C, Java) and the handier "scripting" languages (e.g., Python, Ruby, Perl) that attempt to marry some OO concepts into what is ultimately a procedural substrate. Kids, first learn what a computer system is; learn assembly language on six or seven processors and how it relates to their bus architecture, I/O interface (e.g., whether DMA or "programmed" [a la the R6502: an admittedly poor term]) and microinstruction decoding; study LISP, APL, FORTRAN 66, SNOBOL, and other vehicles that enable you to explore the range of man's machinewise thinking beyond simple-minded von Neumann and MIX models that calculate the contents of address 1 based upon the contents of address 2; THEN, and only then, read and comment upon a Haskell text. ...
