1-0 out of 5 stars I am yet to receive this book
The tentative date of receipt is 27th Jan 2006 but to i haven't received the book as of today.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Oracle reference tool
I was part of the Oracle implementation team at our company, and I have found this book to be a useful tool for myself in the year since implementation as we continue to explore new functionalities. It is also a useful tool for the application users to learn how Oracle works.In fact, I not only purchased this book for myself, but I have purchased copies for several other people in the company.I refer to it all the time.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Book for the beginners
This book is very useful for the beginners as well those who want to brush up their knowledge on oracle applications release 11i.

Editorial Review

This textbook provides a basic introduction to the fundamentals of current computer designs. As the title suggests, the text skirts the border between hardware and software. After an overview of the subject and a discussion of performance, the book launches into technical matter such as instruction sets, how they are constrained by the underlying processor hardware, the constraints on their design, and more. An excellent critique of computer arithmetic methods leads to a high-level discussion on processor design. Following is a great introduction to pipelining, nice coverage of memory issues, and solid attention to peripherals. The book concludes with a brief discussion of the additional issues inherent in multiprocessing machines. The extremely lucid description is grounded in real-world examples. Interesting exercises help reinforce the material, and each section contains a write-up of the historical background of each idea. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good reference text book for student.
I used this book for my undergraduate level of computer organization course. The book gives a complete reference to the subjects we need to know about computer hardware structure. However, the explanation for each topic could be better prepare so that it will help reader following through the contents easier.
4-0 out of 5 stars One of the better texts on hardware
If you have to use this book in a college course and you are not directed to do so, download the SPIM simulator (MIPS spelled backwards) the author mentions in the book. This can help you understand some of the more complex topics.
1-0 out of 5 stars Complicated and confusing

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Excellent book
I own about 30 books about Access (all versions). This book tops all of them. If you are using Access 2000 or 2002(XP) and you like to know about SQL Server (2000), trust me this is it. Try to read it from begining to the end. It's written in english language (not technical slang) and it shows you some cool tricks even for those Access 97 users. Hope to see more books from these guys. Thanks

5-0 out of 5 stars Exellent Resource for SQL Server and Access
This book is well written and easy to follow.The explanations are written in clear language and instructions are written out step by step.The book is well organized which means it's easy to use it more as a reference book.But, it is such a pleasure to read, you want want to skip a single page.This book covers both very elemental aspects of SQL, but also has much to offer the more experienced user.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply the best - is #1 in my top 3 books to "use".
I read a lot of books covering topics from Access, SQL Server, to VBA.This book covers all of the "required" Access topics.It covers them better than any other book I have ever seen.It then goes on to cover topics I have not seen in other books or classes.While reading the book you will catch yourself saying why have I never seen this before, or hey I can use this! It uses Jet, Transact & VBA. Do you want to build better applications, do you want to know more than the competition, do you want to be a better developer?If so, this book is a definite purchase.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book
This book is very good. I've had the book for a month now, and use it every day. It is good because it covers both SQL and PL/SQL, as well as all the latest Oracle 10g database features.
4-0 out of 5 stars Even better than the last edition
Like the previous version, this is even better written. For starters to PL/SQL I recommend PL/SQL 101 and this.
5-0 out of 5 stars Only SQL and PL/SQL book I actually use
I have three SQL and PL/SQL books, but this one is the only one I actually _use_ on a daily basis. It's a great book because it acts as both a training guide and reference book.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best $12 I ever spent!!!
I bought this book on cheap clearance after the original publisher went out of business -- the best $12 I ever invested.Remembering even 10% of this book makes you better than 90% of Oracle developers, modelers and architects.Mr. Kyte's real world experience and reliance on solid examples instead of folklore makes this light-years ahead of any other Oracle book; it's the only Oracle book I re-read regularly.If you can afford only one Oracle book, this is it.And you may not need any other.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fantasic
A true masterpiece, and a great way to learn Oracle concepts.No more to say.

5-0 out of 5 stars Detailed and well explained
Thick Oracle book which is intended for developers who might need to understand the Oracle internals and administration parts besides writing SQL. It's useful for them working in other database also as the general database concept is simlar. Developers can now have more DBA knowledges after reading before on-going performing some DBA task. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars If you want to learn DB2/SQL this is a MUST HAVE
Buy this book!!! ... I wanted 5-0 out of 5 stars All You Need To Learn DB2
This is an excellent resource for all those baffled programmers who need to learn DB2 fast. Thos book provides clear-cut examples, syntax, and the results of the various SQL commands that are most likely to be needed byany programmer. All the basics from simple SELECT statements are coveredall the way up to ORDER BY clauses, joins and so on. A special chapter onusing SPUFI was also a big help. The emphasis here is on the COBOL languageand mainframe computers, but it is an excellent learning tool for anyone.The book teaches by example and can be finished easily within a week (Theexample programs are what make it look so big). A must-read for anyoneinterested in relationall databases. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars A very bad book
This book doesn't cost its money.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book worked for me
I used this book, and one other, to take and pass the Oracle Certified Professional exam (OCP).The other book I used was Oracle Press' PL/SQL Program Units Exam Guide, which focuses just on the second exam.This book covers all of the exams, but the second exam is especially difficult, and a friend recommended that one for that exam specifically.2-0 out of 5 stars Too basic
Good book for a beginner (this is an excellent intro to SQL and PL/SQL), but not enough depth for the exams.It covers all the necessary areas, but barely skims the surface on numerous important topics.I recommend the Sybex book (even though it's a little dry).For each test, I'd start with this book and then move on to another text; that should be all you need to pass the exams.Be sure to PRACTICE; that's by far the most important element of success. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Straight to the point
This is short and sweet.Of all the Oracle books I have read, this is among the best if not the best.I'm not affiliated with the author, reviewer, or publisher so I get nothing for saying it.
4-0 out of 5 stars a good resource
I found many helpful items in the book.I would prefer more information on applying oracle patches thru dbconsole and manually. More Windows examples would be great

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for 10g DBAs
The book is a solid, painstakingly detailed Oracle 10g DBA handbook. This book covers the latest Oracle 10g Release 2 features in detail and is an excellent reference for DBAs as well as developers and managers who are using the 10g database.

1-0 out of 5 stars Do not bother
This book is a joke. It is poorly written, the grammar is crazy and wrong, and it dwells too much on events that are not important (click next, and click next, then click ok, and then next...). You would be well-advised to read another book, as well as BOL, before attempting 70-228.
4-0 out of 5 stars passed first ime.... but....
I just passed 70-228 first time using just this book and BOL as guides. I found the first half of this book a waste of time.Way too much attention to how-to examples of performing steps in the GUI (Click this, click next, click OK).The second half, however, was much more useful.One thing though.It is useful in that it offers a failry concise, objective by objective, summary of what you will need to know for the exam and then points to BOL for the actual information.It is short on providing information in and of itself.
1-0 out of 5 stars A complete waste of time and money!
Luckily I am already an Oracle DBA or I would not have been able to make real-world sense of the material presented in this book. In my opinion, it is pretty much worthless if you are preparing for the 70-228 exam or if you are wanting to work with SQL Server on the job. However, it is a great doorstopper/paperweight (which is why it is worth one star). Yes, I have passed the 70-228 exam, but I can guarantee you my passing had absolutely nothing to do with this book! ... Read more

My boss asked me to develop a leave system. I have no experience about Access VBA before. I bought a lot of books. However most of them are too thick and theoretical. No step by step examples are provided. Fortunately after reading this one, I can finish my task now.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for intermediate users.
Considering that it's only one volume, this book is about as comprehensive as you can get. Good instruction, great index, and an excellent accompanying cd with exercises and additional information. The book itself could have been more concise, though. At times it's repetative and redundant, but for no other reason than to clarify the author's methodolgy behind the current lesson. Being an intermediate user, this was a great book; however, if you consider yourself advanced, I'd skip this and try to find something more specific. This isn't really a great book for beginners either; you'd probably find it a bit overwhelming and the terminology a bit confusing. Regardless, it's a great reference tool for any user, and I recommend it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as you might think
I have had "Bibles" of the last 3 versions of Access. I was disappointed with the earlier versions in that they did not go into macros and VBA as much as I wanted. I was overjoyed that this version does, but found many problems. All the books in the "Bible" series have problems with proofing. There are too many typos. Even a section on spell check in this book had the wrong words entered for the spell check. The bigger problem is with the examples provided on the CD. Some files are missing in the chapters. And the coding does not always work. I tried to program a personal project using a much-needed procedure and could not get it or my lesson to work. What a surprise - the completed project that was provided on the CD did not work either. Wiley needs to proof and test more before going to press. Also a little too high level for beginner Access users - assumes that the average user understands the VBA terms and their applications.

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor Index, Missing key concepts, Garbage...
I frequently use these reviews to select books of all types.I consider myself a power user able to learn rapidly from good texts.This book has not been very helpful for my work in Crystal Reports.
2-0 out of 5 stars Who are you writing this book for?
After reading positive reviews of this title, I decided to purchase the complete reference and was extremely disappointed. The most common problem with crystal books (or any other software application manual-excel, access, etc.) is that the author try's to appeal to all crystal report's users.There are generally three types of software user's out their, 1. database administrator/computer programmers who want reference manuals with excellent indexes. 2. Basic users who can get by with your classic "for dummies" title. 3. User's who don't understand VBA or SQL but want to be able to create reasonably advanced adhoc reports.5-0 out of 5 stars A good reference book

Sorry, but I can not recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an agile way of handling schema evolution.
5-0 out of 5 stars Bringing the Mountain to Mohammed
Much more beautiful code is being written as a result of Fowler's Refactoring; the Gang of Four's Patterns; Beck's Test Driven Development; etc. Unfortunately the database development community either hasn't applied these principles & practices or hasn't bothered to read about them.
4-0 out of 5 stars Pity that this book is needed
First let me say that Messrs. Ambler and Sadalage did a very good job with this book.The database design advice is generally good, reflecting good practices:Make sure that your columns are in the right table, for example.Rename columns and views to make them more meaningful.Divide and combine tables so that they more closely represent their meaning in the application.

This is one of the 2 texts we've had for our data structures course. I'm not sure what the other book is, because this one was so good. It covered the material in a clear and precise way. I even have a copy of this book today, for further reference!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to the subject, wonderful teaching..
I seriously like this book. It's explaining is close to crystal clear to me when I read it, and the algorithms listed (in pseudo-code) take it to a practical level.

One of the best ways to discover the strengths and weaknesses of a textbook is to teach a course using it.A few years ago I taught a senior-level course on Data Structures using this book.The book was a joyto teach from, and I would happily use it again -- I thought it was one ofthe nicest textbooks I've ever used.Read more

I wonder how the hell did I have to patience to read the entire book without tossing it into the bin ..... well may be I wanted to to get something out of it for my money's worth ..... This book is not bad its just not what you would expect from the complete refrence series .... ABSOLUTELY NO MEAT ..... hell I could have written a book by copying and modifying the language from the USER Manuals ........ You don't learn something when the author just tells you "OK drop this menu and select this option" unless you are going to tell me why am I selecting this option ..... sry but I have to be harsh on this .... when you are writing a book a such a good software you need to be in really top form with an excellent command on everything ........ In the end "READ THIS IF YOUR COMPANY BUYS IT FOR YOU AND DON"T SPEND MRE THAN 2 DAYS ON THIS"

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for "newbies"
I found the sections on the history of Busines Objects and the background on Business Intelligence very helpful. The only missing component is a CD for the report exercises.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful resource!
I was thrilled when I heard that a book was being published on Business Objects!After getting a copy of Cindi Howson's book, I was even more pleased!Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars More for mathematicians than computer scientist
This book introduces the concepts of kernel-based methods and focuses specifically on Support Vector Machines (SVM). It is hard to read and a good background in mathematic is clearly needed. The book has a strong emphasis on SVM starting from the very first line of text. Concepts are well explained, although equations are not clear. The notation doesn't facilitate the reading at all. The book covers linear as well as kernel learning. The kernel trick is well described. It is easy to understand ideas behind SVM while reading the corresponding chapter. Finally a small chapter on SVM applications is proposed. Unfortunately, it only contains typical SVM applications (i.e. standard problems).
4-0 out of 5 stars A little dry.
The book is a little dry at times. Also, I didn't get a very clear idea of how to select kernel functions, which seems pretty important.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not even close to an intro...
Oh Puhleeeezzzzz... How is your vector math??? Remember your linear algebra well?Do you have a background in SVM's? Intuitively able to suck out of thin air the meaning of the Gamma co-efficient as applied to svm's?? You've read all the background papers and remember your formal logic???? No?? too bad..your out of luck..

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on SCM
I am the CEO of a software company and even though I knew the importance of good SCM practices, as a small company, we procrastinated on actually implementing anything formal.Anyway, when the fires got to a point, we decided it was time we took the medicine to get serious about SCM and I turned to Mr. Leon's book for help.I also sifted through a bunch of other books on the topic at libraries and bookstores and was immediately overwhelmed by the seeming complexity and all the jargon.The simple language, the concise explanations and the organization of content in Mr. Leon's book served as almost a how-to-manual for me as we went about implementing SCM concepts in our organization.I bought a couple of copies of the new edition for my two EPMs and they have been unanimous in their praise of this book as well.If you're looking to bring some order into your software development world through SCM, I would highly recommend you start with this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction to SCM
The first four chapters of this book might be called: "Why do Software Configuration Management." And they are excellent. If these explanations make sense to you, you might implement SCM before you look around at the software project and find that part of the source code is missing, the source code of this sub-routine doesn't match the binaries, this bug that was fixed is back, and any number of other problems.
5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent, comprehensive and 'readable' book on SCM
This book is the second edition A Guide to Software Configuration Management (ISBN: 1580530729). The change in name is a bit confusing, but the author explains why the name was changed--due to the change in scope, magnitude and coverage of the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Indispensable Desk Reference
The book not only lists all the function and script in a esay to find format, it also includes many custom functions which one usually pays seasoned developer to write. Scott Love, Steve Lane and Bob Bowers are leaders of the FileMaker Pro community and in this book they generously share their expertise. The chapter on XML custom function itself is already worth the price.Their other book, Special Edition Using FileMaker 8, is just simply the best. Filled with extensive techinques and tricks, all clearly written and explained, you just couldn't ask for a better book about FileMaker Pro 8.

4-0 out of 5 stars More functions and script examples please
Good book but it does not include enough functions and scripts examples.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the few "indispensable" Filemaker bnooks
In my library I have 25+ Filemaker books dating back to Filemaker 2.0.A very few of them are tattered, bookmarked and dogeared and sit withing arms reach of my computer."Scriptology" is one of them, as is "Filemaker Pro 5.5 Techniques for Developers"."FileMaker 8 Functions and Scripts Desk Reference" joins these.I've only had it a few weeks and it is starting to take on the patina of those stalwarts.A truly useful reference - dare I say "essential"? ...

3-0 out of 5 stars one more okay book
This is like a cross refrence book where on each page itrefers to other chapters or pages atleast three times. And i would just say it's okay. It doesnt even teach how to crawl web in a good automatic way.

5-0 out of 5 stars Vital reference
Lucene is truly an amazing piece of work.A knowledgeable Java programmer can pick up the API and integrate lucene into their applications very quickly and effectively.There are some excellent examples that come with system, and getting an index built and a search system working is a fun task you can complete in a short afternoon.
5-0 out of 5 stars Can't miss book for lucene..
I love the Deitel & Deitel series programming books because of their deliberate intend to teach by real-world examples. It doesn't matter if an author gives you all the techno mombo-jombo behind the software/language if they can't show you how it works in the real-world.
