5-0 out of 5 stars Well Done Volume
One of the sad aspects of reading these reviews is that the reviewers insist on judging a book on the basis of their own frequently irrelevant and often limited experience in the subject matter rather than assessing the actual qualities of the book as written.
5-0 out of 5 stars A very good choice for learning data mining concepts with minimal resources
The particularity of this book is that it is more accessible to read than most of data mining books, which in general require some maths/statistics/computing background.
2-0 out of 5 stars A poor book, even for beginners in DM
The author is not able to clearly present/describe concepts without using many examples.For many subjects(even simple ones), the book is lacking in clarity and logic, so that it's hard to find out what the author is trying to say.Too many pages are wasted on irrelevant sentences. Don Box books contain difficult logic, but you feel his clarity and preciseness in his writing.George Shepherd books are also enjoyable to read even though the subjects covered are wide and not easy. This book is just the opposite: easy concepts presented with a messy, hard-to-follow style. ... Read more

Always keep this book within arms reach.Not for the inexperienced.If you know Domino Administration and know how to use this book, it can be your bible. Everyone on my team has one on their bookshelf.

1-0 out of 5 stars Needs editing.Rough draft quality.Painfull to read.
This book needs editing.Much more akin to a first rough draft than a finished version ready for print.Painfull to read, it definetely does not live up to the high standards of other O'REILLY books I've read. The book covers a lot of information in a condensed format but unfortunetly has the following shortcomings (listed in order of seriousness):5-0 out of 5 stars The best book i have ever seen

5-0 out of 5 stars Yes, the author reads the reviews.
Yes, the author reads the reviews here. That's me. The error in which a few quotes were replaced with underscores occurred during the publishing process, after I was finished with the book. I didn't know about the errors until I saw the earlier review here. However, there is no way to fix it. If the book is reprinted or a second edition is released, I can fix the errors, but not until then. I wish I could. I apologize to any who were confused by this problem.
3-0 out of 5 stars Editor must have been on vacation!!!
Although I am learning a lot from this book,I am frustrated by the number of typo's.I finally figured out that when you see an underscore,it might really be a single or double quote...
5-0 out of 5 stars Unquestionablythe best book to start with.

5-0 out of 5 stars Grid technology is relevant in the enterprise
The hundreds of grids deployed over the years in research and academic domains provide ample proof of the benfits that may be realized through the use of grid technologies. But these successes are sometimes overshadowed by recent market hype over grid computing that may lead one to question it's maturity, readiness, and applicability to entperirse IT needs. This book clearly illustrates the applicability of grid technology to the commercial world.
5-0 out of 5 stars A guide for riding the cyberenvironment wave
The authors have done an excellent job of describing "The Grid" in terms that specialists and nonspecialists can understand.From the basic rationale to the technology to the various applications, the book gives a clear picture of the current status of the Grid and provides a peek at the opportunities that the era of cyberenvironments will usher in.

4-0 out of 5 stars Grid becoming an established technology also for industry
I have appreciated this book, since in my daily work I often need to give introductory talks on Grid technology for industrial and commercial applications. This book does a good job at introducing the technology and reviewing the present major trends. It covers in particular the recent convergency towards web services and gives some good examples of practical applications of Grid technology in the industrial domain. It will be very imporant to keep the information up to date in a very rapiddly changing environment. For this the companion electronic book on the web is very useful and appropriate. A possible suggestion for a future edition will be to cover more the European experience on Grid technology which in this first book is a bit neglected in favour of a rather comprehensive coverage of the US experience. Understandable looking at the backgroud of the two authors. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Definitive Work on the Subject
I have read this book cover to cover. Think about that. When was the last time you (or anyone you know) read a technical book cover to cover? It is that good. It *does* get a bit deep and theoretical in many places, but it covers the subject matter with more depth and more meaningful examples than any other book I have ever seen. A MUST READ, if you want to design serious object databases!!

4-0 out of 5 stars A very good book on object-oriented modeling
The book is composed of four parts: modeling concepts, analysis/design, implementation and large system issues.5-0 out of 5 stars excellent book for advanced data architects

1-0 out of 5 stars C++ Plus Data Structures, Third Edition
This is the worst textbook I have ever had. I have no idea how anyone could learn to program from this mess. No complete examples, not very coherent chapter lay-out, extremely unclear. The best use of this book is for firewood.

1-0 out of 5 stars Course book
Typically most students that take Data Structures are neither lazy nor stupid.This may be considered to be a good book if the person using it already knows the language and has good understanding of the principles used within the book.As a course book for people that are attempting to learn, this book has very little to offer.Sadly, I am in a class that requires this book.Everyone in the class is complaining about this book and even the teacher is having second thoughts about using it again.Probably the main problem is the cryptic code snippets included.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Style
I am surprised to see other reviewers say heinous thing about such a well written book. The book kept me on a course to implementing my codes with the best readable,OOP design methods available. It emphazises encapsulation and polymorphism and taught how well to use them.

3-0 out of 5 stars Ok, but I think I can find better...
For me it was just OK.I'm a long-time developer, but just recently decided to look into web development with CF.I have read many 'For Dummies' books in the past on various subjects and many of them are pretty good, but this one left me with the feeling that whoever was supposed to edit the book was on vacation.There are numerous typos and a few grammatical errors, but really the main problem was the lack of detail.I suppose this is to be expected as I think the main focus here was a quick and dirty introduction to Cold Fusion MX.If you are a raw beginner and have never written any kind of program, not even HTML, I don't think this would help you much.If you are a seasoned programmer, don't bother, just read the documentation that comes with ColdFusion, it's much more in-depth.If you are somewhere in the middle, this might be OK for you, but I think there are better books out there.

3-0 out of 5 stars Why did the author make so many typos in this book?
I've been a ColdFusion programmer for about three to four years now, but if I hadn't read Ben Forta on ColdFusion 4.0, I would have really not understood this book.There were so many typos and incorrect spellings in certain sections of the book that I wondered if the author was testing us.I was really impressed by ASP.NET for Dummies which I highly recommend, but this was a real disappointment.The Flash-CF program interactive you download was very interesting, but considering the download also included only two downloaded tables persons and departments, I wondered why some of the book's code asked for a table called employees.(page 93)Also XAsisTitle (page 83) -- very bad taste, but it's right next to YAxisTitle so I guess we're supposed to figure that out.Also I believe there is no ColdFusion internal function for Sqrt (page 92) so when you poor programmer try to program that -- you get a please define variable Sqrt.Not recommended for the faint of the heart.Ben Forta forever. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Not a best practices book
This is a "for dummies" book masquerading as a best practices book.It is also a "for people who think Vaughn is as funny as he does" book, as well as a "for people who want to know more about ADO classic than they do about ADO.NET, which would be odd considering the title" book and a "for VB programmers who find C# as confusing as Vaughn does" book.5-0 out of 5 stars Vaugn is the Man!
I thought I had already reviewed this book but I guess I didn't.This is a totally killer book from start to finish.There's simply nothing that isn't great about it.It's well written and never gets boring.Vaughn has a total command over what he writes and has an amazing knack for keeping things interesting (which is very important in computer books).His examples are all things you encounter every day.His insights are those of someone's who's dealt with virtually every scenario his readersmay face. And in a nutshell, it's just a totally cool book by a totally cool author.3-0 out of 5 stars Good book, but mis-titled IMO
The authors' expertise in the subject is clear. These guys have been doing this for a long time, and know it inside and out (or at least as well as can be expected at the time of writing). It reads really well, and their added insight is great.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Same as Version 5
I was a little dissapointed with this book, instead of focusing on what is new with MX, the majority of the book is rehashing the older version of the book much of which are no longer relevent in MX. I would have really liked to see more on the new xml functions, use of web services and Java integration. I would suggest instead that you get O'Reillys Programming ColdFusion MX, 2nd Edition by Rob Brook-Bilson when it comes out, it covers the newer topics more in depth and is a better resource later as it is easier to find answers to your questions. If you just want to learn the newer features get Inside Coldfusion MX and for more advanced info get Java for Coldfusion Developers by Eben Hewitt (great book!) and Discovering CFCs: ColdFusion MX Components by Hal Helms.

1-0 out of 5 stars I read the book on less then 2 hours
Last year I bought Macromedia Coldfusion 5 appliction Development for Ben Forta. I did like the book and I learned a lot from it. So with my order of Coldfusion MX software, I decided to order Coldfsuion MX Application Develpment for Ben Forta. I start reading and soon I am in the end of the book do you know why? because it is almust same as the first one. Even same example.There is chapters where is same on both edition word by word. Yes, there is few things new on coldfuion MX but not worth it. 5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!
Ben does it again!I was very pleased with the book.The coverage of CFMX's advanced features was excellent!The book is designed to allow you to skip around, not requiring you to read it cover to cover.Read more

From the moment I opened this factual, precise and yet self- explanatory work of intellect, my answers to problems in the world of information technology were all fulfilled. Surely, the world of technology changes at the speed of light and so does the world of business. The author has fully incorporated this approach in creating a holistic work which embodies the concepts of the Internet and the World Wide Web (yes, they are in fact completely different), tying into the literature screen shots and sequential series which polish the seasoned user of Microsoft Access and I suppose, enlighten the skills of the novice.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Fails to explain the GAP between Biz Objectives & Outcomes
Software requirements begin with business objectives, definition, requirements, and expectations. Business community always looks at the bigger picture, on the other hand, systems or business analyst merely focus on specific information, result is the actual requirements get lost between the translations and the software projects fail or are delayed and exceed their budget. This book eloquently spells out six skills crucial for defining comprehensive software requirements, like analyzing the problem, understanding user needs, defining the system, managing scope, refining system definition and system validation. If you have difficulties in defining and maintaining the system requirements, this book could significantly improve the focus. However, this book fails to explain the gap between business objectives and outcome. However, linking this book to preliminary step of software development would overcome initial snag, ensuring the system design and implementation likely to be successful. By Vivek Dixit, Stanford.edu

5-0 out of 5 stars Anyone involved with developing software - read this book
I have survived many approaches to "capturing" a system design over the last 22 years. This book, however, lays out a tactical plan that can be used to flush out design issues up front, where the seeds of larger design problems start. 5-0 out of 5 stars A must for anyone in software development
This is the most inspiring book I have read for years! I recommend it to *anyone* involved in software development or even those who are about to make an investment in software for own use. Stakeholders at all levels, even the guardians of the company's money bag, the users, developers, project managers etc. should all read - and then practice what the authors preach. This comprehensive book should make it easy to adopt the suggested processes. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Enough Of What It Is Supposed To Be
Less than half of this book really deals with what the title suggests.Chapters 6, 7, and 8 are the only things of value to someone already familiar with the UML.The previous chapters try to give the database designer an overview of using UML for all project aspects; however, this is done much more cleanly in other books like UML Distilled or Visual Modeling With Rational Rose 20XX and UML.5-0 out of 5 stars Great understanding for all facets of DB Design
Despite the previous reviews of this book I decided to read it and am glad that I did.The authors took me through a thorough yet easily understood path of both UML and database design.Not being an expert in UML, but having a background as a data analyst, I found the book useful to understand UML as it pertained to how I would use it.The callouts for database designers were very helpful and by following a consistent real-world example, I was able to understand how I would design my databases using the UML.I now understand that I don't have to know or even use the entire language to succeed, but only the parts that are relevant at the time I am designing and now I can be on the same page as my development team too.

5-0 out of 5 stars I really liked it!
I wanted a book that would show how to start using UML for data modeling.This did. I too liked the DB Designer sidebars and the detailed case study.I thought the case study "story" sections were a nice change of pace from most software books' straight technical style. (And I've see such stories happen on the job too often.) This book worked for me. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Deals with Weblogic 7.0
This book is certainly good. Very detailed. And it is cool.
5-0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed
If you are new to WebLogic and/or are somewhat mystified by J2EE buy this book. It's a great resource and it is totally worth the money. It helps you get up and running quickly without getting too bogged down in all the BEA documentation. I found the overview of the J2EE technologies very enriching and the demonstration of WebLogic's value proposition and capabilities easy to digest. It also has some very helpful and practical suggestions for working out some thorny issues with WebLogic server such as class loaders, deployment etc. I'm constantly referring to it. The author has really done his homework and has done a valuable service to the WebLogic developer community by writing this book. When I had a question regarding some portions of the text I emailed the author and he responded within hours! He not only helped answer my question but also pointed me in the right direction where I could do additional research. It's nice to see someone stand by their work like that.

3-0 out of 5 stars Print version of online documentation
If you prefer print version of the online documentation here it is. Unfortunately, not much content in addition to that online component. Provides a solid introduction to weblogic and j2ee, although does not go into depth in any particular topic. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Basic Sourcesafe
Whipple and Roche goe beyond the very limited Microsoft documentation. He actually explains real world applications and how SourceSafe works and doesn't work in a variety of situations. This is the manual that SourceSafe should have had. The addition of screenshots to give you a clear picture about what he is discussing is helpful. Why didn't MS do that? Because that would be user friendly. Don't get me wrong I love most of the stuff MS puts out, it's their documentation that stinks. Thank goodness for authors like Roche that put it in the proper perspective. If you are working with SourceSafe you will want this book. It may not give the tips that "Real World Software Configuration Management" does, but it has most of what you will need to administrate SourceSafe. I did expect a bit more for the price, but then books are just overpriced.

1-0 out of 5 stars Totally disappointing!!!!!
This book looks more like the online help. I am totally disappointed with this book. Unfourtunately I cannot return it because I got the ebook. I should have heeded to one of the reviews on this site about this book and not bought it. The MSDN resources give you a better understanding of how to use sourcesafe more effectively in a complex environment. This book lacks information on complex topics like sharing, branching, pinning and how to effectively use them. If you are looking for a printed version of the online help organised and worded bit differently then this book is for you, otherwise please stay away!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Severly lacking
Not worth the price tag. It does a fair job of listing the dialog boxes and explaining them, but so does the help. It also lists the command line switches, but again, so does the help. The so-called "Advanced Features" alluded to in the synopsis is 23 pages label "Beyond the basics" - the help has essentially the same material. One star is generous. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great help
I first bought Creating a Web Page in Dreamweaver 8. It sucked, bad. Probably the worst book I ever bouhght. Then, I found this book, really made a lot of sense. Great for beginners, and it is real in depth as well. I would recomend it, and might even buy a second copy for myself.
2-0 out of 5 stars Nice Pics .... but that's about it.
This book is severely lacking.The book uses a lot of pictures and poor descriptions in an attempt to teach you how to use dreamweaver functions.The result is that you get an idea of how to do certain functions but never get the feeling of how to effectively put them together.The book is in limbo between catering to beginners and being a mere reference book for someone trying to remember 'how to create an input form'.Had this book provided a simple web project that the readers could complete while teaching us the program; then everyone (readers and author) might have been able to stay on the 'same page'.

5-0 out of 5 stars Really Helpful!
This book was really helpful in helping me make make my website. Each page has great detail, and very simple to understand and follow. I definitely reccomend this book for all Dreamweaver users and whoever wants to create a website. Loved it! thanx ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Data Mining Text
This book covers data mining at a serious level, including essential material on testing and a broad array of techniques.It is written for practitioners and provides clear explanation of included topics.Easily one of the best 5 books on data mining currently available.
4-0 out of 5 stars A good book to practice
I have bought this book as course book to learn some particular aspects of data mining.
5-0 out of 5 stars A nice complement to the other data mining bible
Witten's book, combined with the accompanying open source package, Weka, provides a great overview of data mining principles and practice from a machine learning perspective. One could hardly do better than to own this book and "The Elements of Statistical Learning; Data Mining, Inference, and Prediction" by Hastie, Tibshirani, and Friedman which covers complimentary material from the statistician's perspective. Witten does an amazing job of providing a comprehensive overview of the field while still providing some depth re. the algorithms; after reading the book I didn't feel like I'd read yet another large volume of empty claims about the power of information technology to make me rich and famous. In fact, with the book by my side, in a relatively short time I was able to use Weka to pry some useful information from one of my medical imaging data sets (maybe even enough to serve as preliminary data for a grant application). It seems to me that with an understanding of the material in this book and the one by Hastie et. al. one could embark on serious data mining projects. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Poorly Organized, Examples Don't Work
I rarely criticize a text book, but for this one I must make an exception. My biggest complaint is that the examples are full of errors and the procedures are incomplete - leaving out critical steps to make the procedures work. For someone trying to learn Websphere from scratch, this poses an insurmountable obstacle to learning this topic. This indicates to me a rush job putting this book to press and failure to proofread the textbook and failure to test the examples.3-0 out of 5 stars Not enough detail
This book is good at covering a wide range of details, but I wouldn't recommend it for an in-depth knowledge of Websphere, especially if you're a developer.

1-0 out of 5 stars Little bit of everything
I had a very frustrating experience with this book. All I wanted to do was to try install a simple web application with a welcome page and a servlet just to get a feel. But i could not do it easily. The topic of Servlets and JSP is split across many sections with each chapter of 4-5 pages. I would have loved it if all of them had been clubbed together so I could atleast say that I know now everything on servlets. The book has over 40 chapters and tries to cover everything that IBM has to offer. Not for someone wishing to master the WebSphere Application Server. No way. I have used the WebLogic bible before and it was great. ... Read more
