5-0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant book by Jonathan Lewis
This is the book that one definitely needs to read (and understand) in order to get an idea what the CBO is all about.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!Recommended!
I bought the book "Cost-Based Oracle Fundamentals" and I found it extremely helpful and I've been recommending to other people - both DBA's and SQL writers.I've been pretty good at tuning problem SQL in the past mostly by knowing (or learning) the data and forcing the best plan using hints.But the row estimates/cost figures that the optimizer comes up with have always been a mystery to me.This book explains a lot of what I have been seeing.(The answer is 5%!)

4-0 out of 5 stars Limited coverage yet very handy
Sack's book is of unusually high quality for its publisher, Apress, in providing plainspoken and consistently organized descriptions of its topic. Despite limited coverage of SQL Server 2005, it has proven very handy. As of summer, 2006, it really has no competition in providing practical advice about using SQL Server 2005 other than the Books Online documents from Microsoft.
5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, relevant and thorough
I'm an original fan of a previous book written by Joe and afterwards began a dialogue with him that I'm happy to say has continued, in part, due to the ability of me as a reader to get three important things from any book - READ it ALL, it's RELEVANT to what I am looking for and can be practically implemented in the real world, and finally its thorough enough that it doesn't leave you wondering why you just learned something...Thanks Joe for previous books and this one.I wish you continued success.
5-0 out of 5 stars Essential Guide For SQL Server 2005 Admins/Developers
SQL Server 2005 T-SQL Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach by Joseph Sack is a fantastic reference for all DB admins or anyone that uses SQL Server 2005 on a daily basis.Chock full of tasty recipes that anyone will find useful, this is one of the best Apress books I have had the pleasure to read and I do mean pleasure.

First, let me start off by saying that this book is NOT for beginners.You need to have a good understanding of the different types of queries and functions before reading this.

This book is great. It took me about 3 days to finish reading, gain practical knowledge through this book, already help my production through my analysis.

2-0 out of 5 stars Needs a to be updated
Used it as a text book, mainly a reference. With communications rapidly changing it must be difficult to continually update.It is a fair background book, but it doesn't offer much else

2-0 out of 5 stars Book is too dated to be effective in emerging technologies.
Although updated in 1994, most of the text material discusses old mainframe and terminal applications and was likely written during earliereditions of the text.Reading it did not provide a good basis for the telecommunications area, because it is so dated.In its day, it must have been a great text. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Advanced Organizer
First, I'm not a DBA but I install, maintain, and use SQL Server 2005 in lab and workgroup settings.
2-0 out of 5 stars First 3 chapters looks promising. After that it is useless
During reading the first 3 chapters. this book was very promising. Thethe author kept repeating himself "I will show you how to do this, to do that". But after the first 3 chapters, his writing becomes dull. Nothing useful to go on reading. Maybe He was rushing to publish this book or the style that he prepared to go into his writing just died out.Whatever reason, one thing I learned from this book is: What a SQL Server DBA is supposed to do on a daily, weekly, monthly basis. I read so many 5 stars books going into details about writing code to backup, restore, scheduling...etc. But those books forget one point: What a SQL Server DBA is supposed to do on a daily basis. Maybe it is not important for an experienced DBA but it may be important for other I.T guys who want to be DBA. That's why we read books for.
2-0 out of 5 stars Careful
A pet peeve i have w/ Microsoft books is they just mirror the help files. This admin guide is not much more than regurgitated help files. I was hoping for some useful examples, closer to real life problems & solutions. Not there. Plz use the help files in Books Online to look up topics THEN examine the same topic in this book at a local bookstore BEFORE buying it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Manual
Easy to read. Already used on one project. Just another manual in an excellent series.

2-0 out of 5 stars A lot of how, not enough why
This book is not for beginners, and may not be for anybody. It is poorly indexed, making it very difficult to find a desired topic. It is also largely based on step-by-step examples, without enough explanation of why something works the way it does. In other words, plenty of detail on specific, pre-determined tasks, but scant exploration of broad topics and ideas. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Reference for Database Developers Moving to SQL 2005 From 2000
We have been heavy users (both as developers and administrators) of SQL Server 2000 since it came out in 2000.We were anxious to upgrade to SQL Server 2005 and did so in early 2006.For the first couple of months we largely utilized SQL 2005 in the same way that we had done with SQL 2000 (with the exception of using the new Management Studio) and did not really exploit the new features of SQL 2005.This book definitely opened our eyes to many of the new features of the SQL 2005 database and we are using many of those features in our current development efforts.
2-0 out of 5 stars Not what I was looking for
If you're looking for a "what's new in SQL Server 2005" this book covers that.If you're looking for a reference book on the product, that goes into how to configure or upgrade from an earlier version--Keep Looking.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent SQL 2005 Coverage
This book does an awesome job of hitting everything that is new in SQL 2005.There is a lot to cover so it doesn't go into deep depth, but it does give you a good overview and points you in the right direction to find more information out on a particular topic by making sure you have a great introduction. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Best reference guide for designing your SQL Server database
This guide not only provides references on SQL Server syntax, but also contains a brief review of best practices with database design. Includes all normal forms with database normalization, indexing, and data integrity.

5-0 out of 5 stars BestIT Book I Ever Read
This book is an amazingly clear and concise book, especially for the "non-gurus" among us.The explanations of general topics like normalization, the history of markup languages (in the XML section) are so well written you could give them to management and even they would understand what you are doing (maybe that's not such a good idea).Full of tidbits like why transaction logs grow so much faster than data files.Nielson writes about SQL Server 2000 as used in the real world, not just as an interesting piece of technology.Bravo!I would give it 10 stars if I could.I leave nitpicking to the gurus.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you work heavily with T-SQL...
Buy, borrow, or STEAL THIS BOOK!
5-0 out of 5 stars A must read for anyone who wants to be an expert using TSql
This textbook on TSQL covers not only the basics such as DML, DDL and basic data types, but also talks about advanced topics such as Transactions,Stored procs, Triggers and Performance tuning in very good detail. If you are ever thinking of writing a SQL Server sproc or an app layer on top of it, read this book first.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners or for a review of SQL
This book has no coherent structure, but is a conglomeration of tips.Many of the coding examples use fairly complex SQL without explaining it.The join section is laughably short.It is probably most useful for someone already experienced in SQL who can read through it to pull out "tips".I have been away from SQL for a few years and wanted to brush up and this absolutely was not the book to buy.What a waste of money. ...

I highly recommend Counter Hack Reloaded to anyone who wants to better understand the technical details of computer hacking / security / defense.
5-0 out of 5 stars When the best defense is a good offense
The second edition of Ed Skoudis and Tom Liston's COUNTER HACK RELOADEDreturns a primary system administrator's resource to new levels, continuing the attack on destructive hacks with a counter-hack guide which remains useful because over half the material in this edition has been revamped and updated to reflect the latest hacker techniques. Typical hacker methods and tools are surveyed, new 'anatomy of an attack' analyses are detailed, and even a new section on wireless hacking appears. COUNTER HACK RELOADED: A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO COMPUTER ATTACKS AND EFFECTIVE DEFENSES is one of the best on the market - and a most for any network administrator facing tday's many security challenges. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatest thing since sliced bread
When Microsoft took an elegant simple schema from UNIX and redesigned it into a convoluted might mare called "Active Directory" it was time for this book. Turns out that "Active Directory" is not active or a directory; who would have guessed? Well this book starts you off with correcting concepts and even lets you know that with the new terminology that the definition of "domain" has been changed.5-0 out of 5 stars A great little book
One of my students told me about this book and brought it to class. I hadn't expected so much technical content from a Dummies book. This little book really should be the starting point for anyone interested in Active Directory.

3-0 out of 5 stars A decent book of negligible usefulness
The fantastic complexity of Windows 2000 Active Directory almost makes the title of this book an oxymoron. Win2K presents a huge paradigm shift to network administrators, since the Active Directory is a completely new, radically different beast from what Windows NT was. Understanding AD and how it works takes patience...it isn't accidental that there are 1000+ page books out there on setting up and maintaining an AD infrastructure. This book doesn't aim to help you do specific tasks in AD, but what it does very well is explain in basic terms what AD is and does, how it it structured, and give you the frame of reference you need before you delve further in. But I'm not sure how many people need to [pay] for this book when there are other books out there that deal much more extensively in the workings of AD. The bottom line is that computer enthusiasts curious about the central feature of Win2K and newbie administrators of Win2K who have little or no experience with NT4 will find it a useful primer on AD. For anyone else, it's probably better to put the [money] toward one of the more detailed, albeit less plainspoken, AD guides. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best book for learning and understanding Oracle10g JDeveloper
This latest edition for Oracle10g JDeveloper builds on the success of the previous 9i version. As with the previous version, each chapter is well organized with thorough and accurate examples. Well thought-out attention has been given to explaining Oracle's Application Development Framework (ADF). The authors also go into great depth in explaining how to use the newly improved modeling capabilities of 10g JDeveloper (both their strengths and weaknesses).
5-0 out of 5 stars oracle jdeveloper 10g handbook
it is wath i was looking for. Complete, simple and perfectly explaned; in one word perfect.

4-0 out of 5 stars Solid coverage of Oracle backend technologies.
This book was exactly what I needed.I had been struggling for a couple of months to learn all of the pieces needed to build a business application using JDeveloper.I have some Java experience but not a strong J2EE background.There are plenty of resources around that cover XML, Java, JSP/Servlets and non-Oracle frameworks like Struts, Spring and JavaServer Faces (JSF).Don't expect to learn about those things here.But if you are trying to wrap your head around Oracle's Application Development Framework (ADF), this is the place for you.It's the best single source I've seen for that topic.There is a lot of information on the Oracle Technology Network (OTN), but it's scattered and isn't wrapped in a sequential story the way this book's presentation is.Most of ADF Business Component structure has been stable for a couple of years, so the fact that this book is a bit dated doesn't get in the way.

I'll keep this brief, as my title says it all.I have been developing access applications on a professional level for many years.Have several applications that large companies use to run there business.This cookbook has helped me in more ways then I can count.I wish I could find more like it.I use it just as a cookbook.Look thru to find a similiar situation that I am trying to solve.The examples are written very well.The code is very exact and on the money.While most of the examples listed are not always exactly like what I'm trying to solve, it definitely gets the creative juices flowing on how to solve my problem.

The Access Developer's Handbook Set (search ISBN: 0782140114) and in particular, Volume 1: Desktop Edition (search ISBN: 0782123708) is my definitive resource to approximately 4 years of Access development.I've got more stickies and highlights in this set than all other Access books combined.So when I came across the Access cookbook and realized that the same two indispensible authors (Getz & Litwin) put together a resource of Access developer solutions, I had to have it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Access Developers.. this is a must have!
When I started my job, my first assignment was develop several Access databases. What they wanted was beyond what I knew of Access. After buying this book and Access Database Programming and Design, I was well on my way to develop a quite advanced Access database application. I would ask myself, "I wonder if I can..." After consulting this book for the anwser, BAM! I found it there. This book covers everything from simple VBA to advanced techniques such as incorporating a email system into a database, linked dropdown combo boxes using SQL, and creating VB Form control that tells you who all is currently in a database using ADO and VBA! I would say anyone wanting to cook a mean Access database should definitely pick this one up. It is an invaluable reference if you want to develop professional Access databases with incredible functionality! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Platinum Standard for Technical Documentation
Not only is this series the absolute best when it comes to MS Access, it is the best technical documentation I've had the pleasure to use since the early days of Vax/VMS. A perfect blend of explanation, examples, syntax, and guidance. A level of art to which all others should aspire (and regrettably too many do not).

5-0 out of 5 stars THE Reigning Champ
Without a doubt, THE best book on Microsoft Access you will find. Most Access Developers will have several books on the shelf next to their desk gathering dust while they search through Google to resolve their latest dilema. Although I'm a Googler as well, my copy of ADH is frayed and worn...but never dusty. The authors write confidently and authoritatively, yet it seems that they take precautions to avoid intimidating the novice. I've seen reviewers referring to this book as "not for beginners." I was at the beginner-intermediate level when I first thumbed through it at a bookstore. I thought the pricetag was a little too high, but after about ten minutes I had to own it. Since then, it's brought me a long way. Whatever your level, if you really want to learn this stuff you will find great value here.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent explanations
I'm comfortable with Access but when it comes to VBA I'm a newbie. This book doesn't only tell you what to do, but explains the why behind it. I have a database that I've put double digit hours (10+) into one problem. I got the book read up on combo boxes, the problem area, and in 30 minutes debugged my code to make them do what they were suppose to do. If I get nothing else out of this book it was worth it for that one issue, but upon further reading I'm learning the why's of Access. The code is still a little foreign but now I'm much more comfortable working in VBA. They use Reddicks naming convention which is different to me, but that's easy to look past. A great book!! Thanks Sybex! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Dimensional Modeling Made Easy
Data warehosuing is a difficult subject to grasp. There are many disciplines that have to come together to make data warehousing work : database design, business understanding, management expertise, data mining, creating reports, project management, OLAP and more.5-0 out of 5 stars Great Starter
Great place to start learning about DW.The author builds the concepts layer upon layer. Very easy to follow the progression.Once you'e finished this book, then move on to Ralph's Lifecycle Toolkit for some nitty-gritty examples and much more about building data marts into datawarehouses.

This is the best book on dimensional modeling by the master himself.Equally useful for beginners as well as experts. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great coverage, but quite a few errors
The book is an absolute must for those working in information retrieval, and in particular web information retrieval and web mining. These areas are quite hot (again) both for the academics as well as for industry. I personally enjoyed the fact that there is no discussion of semantic web research directions (Jena, OWL etc.) but others might not... The material is quite tightly brought together and very comprehensibly written. However, especially in chapters 4 and 5 there are many pages containing mathematical errors (either in the formulas or in the algorithms described.) For this reason, I rate an otherwise excellent textbook with 4 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Readable, approachable, informative
The field of relevance algorithms for the web is still relatively new and the author provides a clear, informative introduction to the still-developing field. Many references to real problems are discussed, and the author avoids needless use of equations or symbolic logic when a simple textual explanation is more appropriate. This is the book that the authors of "Modelling the Internet and the Web" should have written. Avoid that book, it is a confusing disaster.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best general purpose book on the subject I've seen
Probably not a book you're going to put on your coffee table, but if you've got any interest in this subject matter at all this is a book worth having.You can flip it open to just about any page and find something interesting.Most of the descriptions in this book move from general to specific, so you can jump around from chapter to chapter getting an overview, or dig more deeply when you want more detail.The references at the end of each chapter are also very useful.Whether you want a survey of the field or are trying to implement something specific, this book is a valuable resource. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Not detailed enough- lacks implementation coverage
I agree with one other poster that this book attempts to cover all major HA features in Oracle in one small book. It is ok for a very high level overview hence the 1 star but falls flat for major details on the individual HA features. Instead my advice is to get The Oracle 9i RAC book from Rampant Press, Oracle Streams book and Oracle Data Guard book all from Rampant Press and read the Oracle concepts manuals for these HA features.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good book for intermediate DBA's
It is one of the few good books available in the market which covers RAC, DataGuard and Flashback features all in one.
2-0 out of 5 stars Just overview of Oracle HA technology
The writers like to subsitute the Oracle manual in OTN but make no difference . eg, I wanted to setup the Dataguard through EM10g Grid Control. In fact , the creation standby database wizard was filled of bugs and user can't make use of it till patching and huge manual works. It's no doubt that writers never tried on this features. The book is rather splotchy and winding. ... Read more
