5-0 out of 5 stars Do read this book !!
This is very helpful, if you want to learn how to design a performance efficient system. I have suggestion for the readers of this book, that they should read concept guide to get know how to use the SQL tunning tools.

5-0 out of 5 stars A good reference of db design
Another great Kyte's book which is for database designer to learn how to design and build high performance db application. The guidlines are useful and easily understood for one who have certain Oracle development experience. Intermediate level.

5-0 out of 5 stars Truly remarkable book
Thank you Mr.Kyte for taking the time to write this book.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too high-level
I expected this book to be a good technical reference (much like just about every other Sam's Teach Yourself book).The book fails to deliver technical information and is primarily focused on how to perform tasks when USING Sharepoint that just about anyone who can read and click would be able to figure out without the help.This book is overly simplistic and is targeted to the END USER who is not even familiar with using Internet Explorer (several pages spent on what the different features of IE are).

5-0 out of 5 stars Informative, thorough; a great reference book
Prior to reading this book, I know nothing about Sharepoint. After reading this book, I felt comfortable and well equipped to administer Sharepoint. It is simple to read and is also thorough in covering all of the components of a Sharepoint site. This book also covered the various tasks of a Sharepoint site administrator which I found to be valuable. A great learning tool for the novice and a great reference tool for the experienced Sharepoint site administrator. I also recommend the "Microsoft Sharepoint 2003 Unleashed, 2nd Edition" book by the same authors.

5-0 out of 5 stars The only true user's guide I found
After a long search I finally found the perfect SharePoint reference book for the layman, not the techie... I distributed this book to my team at work and everyone is impressed with it. ... Read more

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 Great Book
I needed to know quickly how to implement a BI solution and ordered three books:Delivering Business Intelligence with Microsoft SQL Server 2005 by Brian Larsen, Applied Microsoft Analysis Services by Teo Lachev, and this book.Of the tree books, this is the only one I really needed.This book had everything I wanted to know about Analysis Services.I was also impressed with the knowledge and information regarding how to design dimensions and cubes especially when it comes to tough situations such as how to apply security.If you need to implement a BI solution, I highly recommend this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars An absolute must for business intelligence....
I have over 9 years of database experience, with about 4 years in MS Data Warehousing experience which included Reporting Services and DTS.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Book on Analysis Services
Microsoft has been extending the capabilities of their SQL Server product to make it more useful in enterprise environments. As is often the case, the first version of the product to make it to market isn't everything that the customer might want.In fact the authors make the comment that the user interface was about as complex as driving a nuclear submarine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome book -- Great information
This being my first book about databases, I find that it explains the topic at hand very well, and concisely. While database design can be daunting of a task, the book guides the reader through it step by step, explaining exactly why something is like it is. The first chapters discuss the different models that were in use and what is becoming mainstream right now. Very easy to read, but some technological insight is suggested when starting this.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great Book, unless you got the Interntional Edition!!
Great text book, but like all students I was looking for the cheapest price tag. I got the international edition for half the price, however, I discovered that it was missing pages, though the cover claims that it has the exact same content as US Edition. It is also missing a CD. The US Edition comes with 2 CD's including the SQL Server CD, which the international edition doesn't come with.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best DB Design and DB Theory book on the market!!!!
This book is top notch...I've read many DB design books, but this one took the cake..When I took my database design class at my university, the professor was great, but the book was even BETTER!!!! I never knew about "normalizing data" until I saw this book and took the class!!! The theory, concepts, examples, and illustrations are 5-star quality!! I still use this book today, and its more than a year passed now, when I need to look up or refresh myself on a concept...Excellent learning tool, as well as a great reference for DB design....Only one problem, the book is "big" in size!!! Get it IF you can!!! ... Read more

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. ...

-don't know which program you will be using for SQL and have no knowledge of SQL commands, this book is directed at you and you should get it.
5-0 out of 5 stars My first taste of SQL
This book is perfect for teaching yourself SQL. Perhaps that's why the title is "Teach Yourself SQL". I had never worked with SQL before and was recommended this book by a coworker. The chapters are divided into lessons and each lesson is fairly short, focusing on specific ideas and phrases.
5-0 out of 5 stars Use this Book Often - it is a keeper
I work on the web 5 days a week for a living - and some code is only used now and then - this book is a great refresher for those little things you do not use often.

4-0 out of 5 stars A+ in the NW and Data Comm hard to find books.
The subject of Networking and Data communication is hard to teach and the good books are also hard to find.
2-0 out of 5 stars For CE/EE users only!
This book is great if you are a CE/EE and want to get into all the little details around network protocols and how the hardware talks to each other. As a CS major (and Principal Software Engineer at my company) I have never had to go to the level this book pushes things at and it reminded me of where the computer industry was back in the early 70's. Many of the problems talk about teletypes and "high speed 2400 baud terminals" like they were developed just the other day.
2-0 out of 5 stars Too many topics too little time
There were a lot of interesting topics covered in this book, but unfortunately because of the volume of material that the author attempted to include, there was little on any one subject.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource - but use with caution
I purchased this book with it was first published and it greatly influenced my thinking and has continued to do so to this day.There is a large caveat I want to share before continuing - be careful of the Zachman Framework because if you do base your enterprise architecture on it you will soon discover that making changes is a tedious process that ripples across the matrix.That said, I continue to believe in the basic concepts and components of the framework, and I also think that it is an excellent way to gain a view of an enterprise when you are attempting to model it.5-0 out of 5 stars A book for multiple audiences that stands the test of time
I initially read this book at the start of my career as a systems analyst.The Zachman framework presented a great way to think about the relationships between systems, data, processes and business.Later on, as a project manager, it provided a more useful tool for understanding the importance of architecture in developing systems.In addition, it applies to architects and senior IT managers who want to make the most of their investment.5-0 out of 5 stars Amust-have for every Architect
This is a must-have book for Enterprise Architects. Application designers, aspiring to be architects, may also read this book. Certainly one of the best EAP books based on the Zachman framework. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good General Reference
As the title, and most of the reviews (save Mr. Strauchs') suggest, this is the manual that doesn't exist in print. It's a nice alternative to the Help menu as it's written in a personable style that offers more direct and real-world applications for the basics of FileMaker.
5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough, complete, yet easy to understand; well-done tutorials
Concur with all the other reviewers that this is THE best, most complete, yet easy-to-follow guide to FileMaker Pro [FMP]. The authors really have gone out of their way in using plain words to describe arcane concepts, and the illustrations are well executed. Although there are the usual typos and occasional ambiguous/misleading statements, there is a continuously updated website with 'Errata' and sample completed tutorial exercises. [If these were included on a CD with the book, this book would warrant a super-nova rating!]
5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Are you a programmer that has been working with FileMaker for a while? If you are, then this book is for you! Authors Geoff Coffey and Susan Prosser, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that explores each feature in depth, offers shortcuts and workarounds, and explains the ramifications of options that a FileMaker Pro manual doesn't even mention.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good reference for any Windows administrator or planner
The 2003 performance guide was probably one book that's worth the price of this entire package.Mark Friedman, the author of Windows 2000 Performance Guide, wrote this book for resource kit.That explained why he never published a follow-up of his famous 2000 performance book.The other books in the kit were also extremely helpful.This is THE set of reference book to get for authoritative Windows 2003 information.Also included is a disc with all the ebook versions of everything, including some bonus books not in the resource kit.So stop Googling for unreliable second hand information, and get your stingy boss to cough up the money for this must have tool.

5-0 out of 5 stars 7 Individual Books ++
This bundled set of books contains just about everything it is possible to know about Windows Server 2003. Well, maybe not everything, but everything you can include in four thousand six hundred and fifty pages, yes, 4650 pages.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for Dev's only
Bob's book is written for the passionate Microsoft developer. DBA's and IT Pro's will find this book useful to have on the shelf, as there are number of features that touch the life of the Admin. Additionally, AW press has released another book, SQL Server 2005 Distilled, if you are looking for something less deep, I would try that book too.
5-0 out of 5 stars A great book for Database Developers
This is a very good book for Database Developers. It covers most topics thoroughly. Some topics like SQLCLR and XQuery are covered too much in detail for my taste, but who knows one day I might need it! (there is a 17 page WSDL in chapter 12 .. I don't know who decided to put this in :-) Initially the minutiae kind of put me off, but over time I have started to like this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars The New Testament
I feel cheated by the publishers of this book, because it was described as a "Bible" for SQL Server 2005: a "definitive hands-on guide" with "virtually every key concept" explained. It does not fit such a description, unless one's idea of a "Bible" can leave out Genesis, Exodus and the rest of the Old Testament.

Editorial Review

Programmers and software architects don't really make a conscious decision to design an application (particularly one with online exposure) around the three-tier model-view-controller design pattern anymore. Three-tier, largely because of its adaptability and stability, is the norm. All of which means you need a database to underpin each of your applications. Designing your databases correctly can make the difference between slow-running, complicated code and software that's speedy, modular, and easy to work with. Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Beginners Only, Could Be Shorter
This book is okay if you are a complete beginner or if you are interested in a consultant-like modeling methodology. If you have even a passing familiarity with things like field domains or records you may find this book too basic. It could have been about half the length. There is substantial repetition and a lot of ink given to hypothetical user interviews and documenting one's design. The author notes that the goal is to get generic concepts not the specific examples, but I would have liked more examples as illustrative of the applicability of the generic concepts. It's easy to say generically that a table should only include relevant fields--but more examples could help teach when and how and why to split up related things into separate tables. This book is very thin on that sort of example. The book is billed as a "software-independent approach" which it is. At the end, your design will exist on paper; you'll still need to learn an app like Access to create the physical database--and some things, like application-specific business rules get implemented at that stage. One more comment: it could be shorter, and it could use a glossary.

1-0 out of 5 stars Rough Draft on Generalized Database
!!! Pathetic !!! ... excuse me, PATHETIC !
1-0 out of 5 stars Bad . . . just bad.
This book is not good.Where it could just give you concepts and syntax and an explanation of database structure, it goes on long-winded life lessons about how to interview people and other non-technical stuff.Maybe I am just partial to technical references over process books, but there is almost nothing of technical value in here.Written by a Microsoft guy, it continues the Microsoft tradition of hiding the computer from you instead of just teaching you how the computer works.It's like trying to teach someone tennis but not letting them know they have a racket in their hand.It describes how to swing in laborious detail, when it would simply be better to show you what you've got in your hand. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the best C++ DS&A book
On my bookshelf right now I have 13 books on DS&A using C++. Every time I am in need of a new type of data structure or algorithm, and quickly scan through each of them to determine which seem to have the most relevant information, and also which have useable source-code. Drozdek's book is almost always the book I end up selecting to learn a new topic.
5-0 out of 5 stars Clear, easy to follow explanations and practical illustrations in C++
Although I have bought this book for its C++ emphasis for DSA, I have found it very good at teaching DSA itself. It has very clear explanations, well chosen examples, and depth enough coverage with along clear and easy to understand code illustrations in C++. The book teaches the topics in an incremental manner by making connections among different related DS and algorithms, which are helpful in understanding the theory.
5-0 out of 5 stars Contrary to prior belief
I had Weiss's book on dsa in c++, and this book surpasses it in terms of clarity and accuracy (both books are comparable in breadth and depth).The previous reviewer fails to notice that this book is about data structures and algorithms, and not C++ (although having a C++ book next to this one couldn't hurt either).So think of this book as a much better version of Weiss's book. ...

I found some answers are not related with the questions. Some typo error and mislead information.

2-0 out of 5 stars OCP Oracle 10g Administration II Study Guide
I installed the OCA ebook software to read the OCA book and it succeeded. But then I installed the OCP ebook software and when I bring it up to read the book online, the Adobe Reader comes up, waits 60 seconds with a blank screen, and then crashes.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love this book!
I bought this book because it was assigned as the primary textbook for a database course. But I have also consulted this book in courses on data structures and algorithms, computer organization, operating systems, programming languages, and even knowledge-based systems (the section on data mining).
1-0 out of 5 stars Worst Book in the world!Not recommend!
Very very poorly written book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Understanding Databases
This book helps you understand how databases works. The second half of the book explains how data is stored (100 pages), how indexes are built (100 pages), query processing (150 pages), transaction management (100 pages), and durability and recovery (50 pages). This is one of the best book, if not the best, on database implementation.
