5-0 out of 5 stars Exceptional SQL Performance Book
'The Art of SQL' by Stephane Faroult is an outstanding book for any and all database developers that want to learn how to write better SQL code and make their database efficiency go UP UP UP!!Encompassing 300+ pages, this well-written and advanced book goes way past the basics of writing SELECT and INSERT statements, taking things to the next level and then some!!
5-0 out of 5 stars Most Unusual Technical Book
Imagine a cookbook with no recipes but after you read it it helps to become abetter cook.This book does not specifically tells what to do.It does not have codes or technical jargon. It gives you an understanding.The book reads well, it is not full of technical references but it is not to say this book is for someone who does not know the workings of a DBMS.The author draws a relevant parallel between designing a database and waging a war.I enjoyed the quotes thoughtfully peppered in the book.Do me a favor and do not get it...in case we are going after the same job

5-0 out of 5 stars This is your graduate level course in SQL - how and why
Probably most database solution developers and DBAs have picked up their knowledge of the subject as they have needed it, rather than in a formal and structured (so to speak) method. And even those that have had a structured education probably learned a lot more while in the field. And so there are always gaps. Gaps in technique, but also gaps in the why of many things that I, for example, took for granted about large DBMS's and SQL.

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.

A tremendous resource, this book is a must, if you use FileMaker you will not find a better one-stop shop. This is definitely one of the best written and laid out books I have come across. Evans has compiled a book that gives newer users a step by step guide and more experienced users a resource to referrer to when need.In addition the writing style makes it easier for all and the excellent case studies provide scenarios that all users can learn from.Bottom line, get it! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical Book for MySQL 4.x users
This book is very practical and gives a clean insight for Power Users of MySQL. It also illustrates some concepts in brief and gets user going fast. Some of the topics like backups, load balancing are covered very well. In short following is what I can say in points.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good book overall, but may grow obsolete to MySQL5.
I mainly bought this book so that I could get some insight into 'advanced' Storage and Replication techniques w/ MySQL.
5-0 out of 5 stars A computer book actually worth reading
I read approximately 2 computer-related books a month, and have done so for the last 10 years.This book is the best computer book I have read in the last 5 years, hands down.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not for Beginners
I'm surprised at the rave reviews that everyone is giving this book.I have this book and I've been reading through it and it starts off fine as it has you build a simple application in the beginning.I found that promising because I've never used Lotus Notes before so I thought this would be an excellent book.The only problem is that once you're finished with that chapter, it goes from good to really bad.The book then becomes a reference manual for the different aspects of Lotus Notes.It provides no tutorials whatsoever as one astute reviewer on here points out.If I wanted this kind of reference I could have read the help documentation for Lotus Notes.This book is only useful for people who have mastered many aspects of Lotus Notes and even then its explanations of aspects like commands are dry and not put into context.

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 words for a 5 star item
go and buy it NOW...!
5-0 out of 5 stars Must Own Book for All Domino Developers
Before I go any further, I have to disclose up front that I personally and professionally know all three authors who contributed to Lotus Notes and Domino 6 Programming Bible (Brian Benz and Rocky Oliver, 2003, John Wiley And Sons, 1032 Pages, ISBN 0764526111). And Rocky, Brian and Richard will all tell you that I would still be the first one to call it like I see it, regardless of relationships. So with that in mind, to every person who works with Lotus Notes and Domino, regardless of version, and to every person who has ever posted to the Lotus developerWorks forum asking about good reference material for development: buy this book and put it on your bookshelf. I may approach coding somewhat differently than the authors, but that is the nature of all application developers. But this book does something often overlooked in too many technical books: it not only talks about how things work in Notes/Domino, it also puts out best practices and explanations for these best practices based on the authors vast depth and breadth of experience.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Standard!
I used this book to deploy Oracle Application Server 10g infrastructure on Linux and UNIX. I felt that it was a good book and overall I have little ill to say about it. The examples are well written and do a good job of reinforcing what you read in the handbook. You read a little then do an example, then read some more, then add to the example and so on. You don't need any Administrative experience to use this book just a decent understanding of application design. The only criticism I could offer is that the editor should have used arrows when content is being continued on a new line for reasons of page space so that readers will know and understand (beginners can have trouble with this). It's a good book for learning Oracle Application Server 10g as a whole from the ground up and for this reason it's worth the money. It's not an overnight crash course (if that is what you are looking for).

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Nice Job
I have taken the iAS 10 Admin I course from Oracle, and wish that I read this book prior to the class.I found it very valuable especially if you are deploying iAS 10g (9.0.4) on Linux.I highly recommend the book to iAS administrators/DBA's.

3-0 out of 5 stars Summary of the White Papers
As an administrator/implementor of these systems, there are many aspects to administering the 10gAS system. Although the authors do make reference the book intends to simplify the rather large amount of documentation, it falls short of a complete guide.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book
I highly recomend this book. I think it best serves those who already know the syntax of PHP, but it is a excellent book. I recomend either "Learning PHP" (The O'Reilly book) or "PHP for the World Wide Web : Visual QuickStart Guide" for a beginner. Both of these books will help you learn the syntax and concepts of PHP, but then it is best to move on to a book that gives practical examples, and this book excells at giving practical examples.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good book for getting started with php and databases.
By reading just the first 4 chapters I was able to create my own webpages using php and the mySQL database to store tables of data.It has some good example programs that you can follow.

5-0 out of 5 stars Significant improvements since first edition
I have read the first edition of this book years before. This second edition has significant improvements. Core topic (classification, clustering, association rules) is very detailed and much easier to read. The author also add much material about advanced topics such as graph mining, multimedia mining, stream and time series mining, etc. Although these advanced topics are not as well writen as core topics, at least you will get idea about what's going on in these areas.

1-0 out of 5 stars 1 star is too much for this book
Do yourself a favor and stay away from this book.The book is put together by gathering some data mining concepts padded with tons of buzzwords to "teach" you about data mining.It really fails to teach you anything and it really succeeds to confuse the hell out of the reader.The language used on this book is the poorest I have ever seen in my entire life.The people how wrote this book and the publishers who published it should be ashamed of themselves.It is a shame that I had to pay for this piece of work because I have to read it for a course I am taking and I really dread opening it every week.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Data Mining Books

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

4-0 out of 5 stars Good not Great...
Glenn Johnson has a very good book here on ADO.NET 2.0.Unfortunately, it just good not great.Here are my pros and cons:
3-0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I was expecting.
This book does delve deep into the plumbing of ADO.Net 2.0, but I must admit that when I read the "Advanced Topics" part of the title, I thought that it would actually cover more complicated versions of some scenarios that might be found in "beginners" ADO.Net books such as handling many-to-many data relationships with bound controls and possibly designing and building a data access layer. While data access layers were covered to some degree, the described methods involved intensive interaction with SQL Server system tables - something I don't tend to make a practice of.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great book, missing practical use.
Great book for ado.net. I wish this book has covered "how to use new features of ado.net with business layer. There should be some more chapter(s) for data acesss layer utilizing ado.net.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for MySQL
This book is great for anyone getting started with MySQL.The book does an excellent job of helping the reader learn MySQL on both Windows and Linux systems, with most examples being run in tandem across both platforms.The books review of MySQL administration tools and clients is very in depth, and probably the best single-source coverage I have seen on the topic.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Resource!
This book opened up new database opportunities for me. Without it, I would never have unlocked the real power of MySQL 5.

5-0 out of 5 stars perfect guide for database programmers
coming from the Visual Basic world (VB6, VB.NET), this book first helped me to use MySQL databases in my VB applications; later I had to make MySQL data available on the web and got used to PHP; again, Kofler's book provided excellent guideance in the various ways of interaction (mysql/mysqli) between PHP and MySQL

4-0 out of 5 stars Image Analysis Book Review
I found the book to be very informative and I acquired several ideas from reading it. But, I repeatedly found myself searching the book for definitions of some of the terms it uses throughout its text. Practical Algorithms for Image Analysis will introduce new terms without any hint of their meaning, assuming that the reader already knows all they need to know about the subject matter (which would negate the need to buy the book!). This book sorely needs a glossary.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's just great
The book is just great! I used the source code from the CD-ROM for various image processing projects. The algorithms are also very practical if you have to deal with images. The code is neat and ready to compile and run.5-0 out of 5 stars Luis J Gutierrez

4-0 out of 5 stars Just What I Needed
In seeking out materials to train myself on Access 2003, I have found several books that have done adequate or good jobs of teaching the program. Most of them, however, did not do so well on teaching database theory or on instructing in how to use the native programming environment. This book helped to fill in the gaps. It is not perfect but it certainly was a good place to start.
4-0 out of 5 stars this book got me started on databases...
Years ago, I've picked this book up to learn Access... I haven't used Access for quite a while now (mostly an Oracle person now), but I still have fond memories of this book.Not only does this book teach you Access, and it does that very well, it also go through the database fundamentals. An overall great book, imho.

4-0 out of 5 stars If you own 2 Access books, this should be one of them
I first read Steven Roman's book on Access a few years ago when it was written for Access 97. I recently bought a copy of the current version as a reference.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good coverage of Oracle SQL
The content look deceptively simple. However upon further reading one finds that it covers many aspects or ORACLE SQL plus differences between ORACLE and ANSI standard.
5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive on basics but weak on advanced features
The book improves with each edition. The brief data modeling section is adequate but uses Information Engineering data models and should be updated to use UML. The treatment describing joins fails to adequately explain why you chose one over the other.
5-0 out of 5 stars This book is Awesome!!
This book by Alice Rischert is one of the greatest Oracle SQL books ever written.I purchased the 1st edition of this book back in the day and it helped me pass the Oracle 8i OCP SQL exam.After reading the 1st edition, I was very much compelled to purchase the 3rd edition.The 3rd edition of the book is much better with all the errors from the previous versions corrected.This is the book they use for the students at Columbia University in New York.After you read this book and do all the exercises and test your thinking projects, you become a master of the subject.If you want to learn Oracle SQL, there is no greater learning tool than this book.Indeed, there is much time, effort, and loads of quality and research put into this book.The format of the book is reading and then hands-on labs which reinforce the topics you just read.After you read this book you should purchase the Oracle PL/SQL by Example third edition.It goes hand-in-hand with this book.AFterward, you'll know enough to go take the Oracle SQL and PL/SQL exam. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A Ton of Information
I recently read the title "Data Center Fundamentals", by Mauricio Arregoces and Maurizio Portolani.ISBN: 1587050234.This title has a ton of information in it.It covers just about every technology that could make up a Data Center environment.The authors have done a good job of cover detail about the several technologies in this title.Some technologies are covered in more detail than others. For example there's a lot of information on HTTP related technologies and not so much detail on say routing protocol.This makes sense, because the title is "Data Center Fundamental".

5-0 out of 5 stars A very good book about Postfix
I wasn't looking for esoteric information on how to administer Sendmail. I was looking for a book on Postfix and that's what the author provided. I got the book based a lot on the quality of O'Reilly books and the editor's reputation. Andy Oram is a top notch editor. I recommend this book to any Linux or UNIX person wanting to substitute Postfix for sendmail. Postfix is a drop in replacement for systems configured for sendmail but Postfix is not a monlithic program with lots of vulnerabilities. The author expalins that perfectly.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good reference guide for PostFix
PostFix is a replacement mail server, MTA, for Unix based systems that
2-0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting
If you're looking for a comprehensive guide on setting up a Postfix mail server, then this isn't the book for you.For those that are already familiar with setting up MTAs, the information provided in "The Definitive Guide" is probably enough, but this book only covers a subset of the Postfix configuration parameters and does not provide the step-by-step instructions that many people may be expecting. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A real page turner
This book is so interesting that on a couple occasions I've fallen asleep reading it, because I want to "find out what happens next" -- not because it is boring.Even the chapter on queueing theory that has a lot of math in it is understandable and interesting, even though I have a mild aversion to math.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent performance book
I purchased this book and did not open it for about 4 months.After reading the first 25 pages or so I became motivated to read more and finish it.It took me about 2 weeks to read through the entire book. The author does a really good job of detailing how to use Oracle tracing to troubleshoot performance related issues.With no shortage of Oracle performance tuning books this is definitely one of the better ones.This book must be one of the best performance related books because you can read it cover to cover.The book is packed with detail so you will reread several pages a few times, kind of like being in college and spending a couple of hours reviewing a couple of pages out of Calculus book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Practical techniques that will have an impact on your ETL
Concepts and technical approaches for analyzing and improving the usefullness of source data are presented in a well organized and logical sequence.Not quite a roadmap/algorithm for achieving data quality; it's balanced a little more on the conceptual side. The techniques and concepts presented are ones you _will_ want to begin using if you have any data quality issues in your source data (and who doesn't), I guarantee that.As a working ETL developer referencing disparate, low quality data, this book has had an impact on our approach, our results, and our project.Short and to the point, it's an easy study also!

5-0 out of 5 stars A groundbreaking book!The scoop on Data Profiling.
Jack Olson coined the term "data profiling" and essentially founded this important new field in the area of data quality assessment.His revolutionary techniques, outlined in this book, can provide IT professionals with an important new set of tools for analyzing data quality.This is a must read for anyone working in the data quality field today.I also recommend it for people in related fields such as data warehousing, Enterprise Application Integration, and database design.With so many "me too" books in the computer field, it's a real joy to find a book that really does break new ground.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Data Quality Book (repost)
This book is the clearest, most practical book on data profiling and data quality that I have seen. Jack breaks down data quality issues into specific categories, and leaves you with a vision of what to do if you are building a data warehouse. His practical experience shows through very clearly and he talks to the IT developer (the reader) very effectively.Read more
