5-0 out of 5 stars Great pocket reference, 2nd edition WITH INDEX now
This small booklet "ORACLE PL/SQL Language Pocket Reference" in this new 2nd edition is exactly what you need as PL/SQL (PL/SQL is the ORACLE procedural language extension of SQL) programmer (and is even more important for casual PL/SQL programmer).1-0 out of 5 stars anO'REILLY flop
Where's the index??A REFERENCE is something you pick up to find a particular needed peice of information. Without an index you have to scan everywhere trying to find what you are looking for.What a waste of time!Dont' even waste the 10 bucks for this piece of junk...

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice, compact, but it really needs an index!
A good sidekick for when you have a mental lapse, unfortunately they seem to have forgot to print the index.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Database Design and Optimization "must-have"....
I highly recommend this book to anyone working with SQL Server 2005. The material presented is made more understandable (not to mention entertaining!) by the examples used by the author throughout the book.The new features for SQL Server 2005 that the author covers are very relevant to my job, especially Chapter 7, Securing Access to the Data.The continuity of the material presented is excellent.Each chapter serves as a reference guide to complex topics that the author successfully explains through a combination of expertise, experience and a sense of humor.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great read
This book is very well written and does a good job explaining new functionality and design of SQL 2005 as well as contrasting with SQL 2000 implementation.Definitely a book to add to your library.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have
I have the 2000 version of this book, which I thought was outstanding. Not only does it have excellent content, but it's written as if you were sitting at a table talking to Mr. Davidson directly.

The book is great for my class.The reviews really help and are easy to follow.

2-0 out of 5 stars too many errors
i just finished teaching a 10 week intensive course on database administration using this book, and i found that there were far too many errors to make this an effective text.the typos were extremely frustrating for the students, and virtually every chapter had several important mistakes.these typos make the labs all but unusable, and the book is in dire need of an editor!it made my 10 week class difficult, to say the least.

5-0 out of 5 stars A solid Reference
I had this book over a year. I started reading it when I passed my first ocp exam (1z0-001). This book is very organized and sufficiently detailed to give you a solid knowledge to master the topic covered in the exam 1z0-031, Fundamentals I. I think this book is not written for someone who wants to rush in getting certified. If you take your time and read this book you will get a solid knowledge of the topic covered in the exam 1z0-031, Fundamentals I. The book walks you through some pratices that build over time a complete understanding of the topic on the exam. But I did not rely mainly on this book for the exam 1z0-031. Since the book does not have a lot of practice exam questions I had to use other references such as the Sybex book by (Chip Dawes and Biju Thomas) and the oracle press book by (J. Couchman and Sudheer Marisetti). Those are good books too. But they tend to focus more on the idea of "what you need to know to get certified". The Sybex book is pretty good with Chapters well-structured and explained. The Oracle press book provides more practice exam questions that I used to test my knowledge of the topic.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Gold Standard
What do I mean by the "gold standard?" As a professional Access developer, I use a lot of reference materials. Besides the Internet, my bookshelf is full of Acces, SQL Server, VBA, T-SQL, and Office reference books. But there is one publication that I always check first when I'm perplexed or curious. It's my gold standard if you will allow me that hyperbole. I'm speaking of the Access 2002 Developer's Handbook, published by Sybex.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great great book
If you need to know anything about access 2002 this book has it!i use it all the time

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for Serious Access Developers
If you are just a beginer you might find parts of the Developer's Handbook set difficult to understand, but as you enhance your skillsets you will find these to be a must have. For a serious Access Developer these books are a definitely a must have. I've written in-house applications for years since Access 2.0. Now, I'm writing commercial applications using Access 2002 and the Developer's Handbook set has been a tremendous resource. It covers things you just have to know if you are going to create serious and dependable software applications using Access. Plus, the files that come on the CD's come with code samples you can really make use of. Of all the people I've read of in the Access Industry, these guys are masters of Access. I'd listen to anything they have to say. They know their stuff, big time. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A bible for those using SQL 2005
Some people commented on the poor editing: typos & some wrong pictures. True. (It detracts, but you can figure it out easily)
4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful to a Point
I BOUGHT THIS BOOK HOPING IT WOULD GIVE ME SOME INSIGHT AND BACKGROUND TO BEGIN USING 2005, AND IT DID JUST THAT. SEEMS TO GO INTO THE "MATH" A BIT TOO MUCH, AND MOST WAS OVER MY HEAD. COULD HAVE USED A BIT MORE ABOUT THE MMC AND HOW TO USE THAT TO BETTER USE, BUT ALL IN ALL A BOOK THAT IS GOOD FOR MY LIBRRAY. F ANYONE KNOWS OF A GOOD RESOURCE ON USING THE MMC IN SQL2K5 LET ME KNOW:-)

3-0 out of 5 stars Decent Book
At the time I'm writing this review this book is the only one available dedicated solely to the data mining features of SQL Server 2005. The book is good, but I was disappointed in it as well on three fronts. First, there is a chapter dedicated to each of the data mining algorithms. I didn't find the business use case examples for when, why, and how to use each algorithm sufficient. Second, each of the algorithm chapters goes off the deep-end explaining the mathematical basis for the algorithm. There are very, very few developers who are going to remember enough of their college mathematics to follow along. Third, the technical coverage of how to use the APIs and the data mining extension language (DMX) is superficial, particularly with DMX. After reading this book cover to cover I couldn't go off and write a DMX query if I wanted to. On the application I'm working on we are planning to implement our own web visualization viewers for the data mining algorithms. This book didn't give me what I needed in understanding the object model exposed by the APIs in order to handle the back-end coding for this. All in all, if you are planning to do data mining with SQL Server 2005 I would recommend this book only because at the time of this writing there is nothing else available. However, you will learn quite a bit about data mining with it and depending on your prior experience (more is better) it might be an excellent fit for you. ... Read more

"ASP.NET 2.0 MVP Hacks and Tips" isn't really a reference guide or your standard tutorial manual.Rather, it's more like a cookbook - "here are some interesting things you can do in ASP.NET 2.0 and here's how to do them."

4-0 out of 5 stars good if you have oracle preknowledge
this is the first book i read to prepare for my OCA exam. at first i was a bit overwhelmed because the chapters are quite long and the languages are not very easy to understand (sometimes i have to reread a sentence two or three times before it clicks). but i guess it was also because by then oracle was still rather new for me. if you are an experienced dba (maybe a 9i oca or ocp) then i guess this book alone should be enough to get you a 10g oca. but if you are new to oracle, i would suggest you to study John & Damir book first (OCP All-in-one exam prep guide), it's easier to absorb and the chapters are shorter (although there are more chapters). then, if you still have the time (and the money) get this book to wrap up your preparation for the oca. i'm sure you will pass the exam like i did.

5-0 out of 5 stars Clear, with numerous helpful examples
First, I should mention that I got this book in Dec. 2000 and had no trouble installing the disk on Windows98.Hopefully the problem pointed about by another reviewer has been resolved.Incidentally, I find the SOLID server very easy to set up and use, with a simple but friendly user interface.OK, now for the book.It is very clear and includes numerous detailed examples, along with step-by-step discussion as to why the syntax works the way it does.This is particularly helpful when grouping, subqueries, joins, etc., or combinations thereof are involved.Sometimes he'll solve a problem in more than one way, which is good to see.Occasionally, too, like a good teacher he will have a snare for the unwary and go on to say, "Wait, this isn't working the way intended," and use the pitfall as a way of bringing home a point. Another thing I like is the adaptation of Backus-Naur Form that he uses in specifying languages -- if you've never seen BNF before (which included me before reading this book), that may sound a little daunting.Actually, it makes correct usage really clear.One more thing to mention about this book is its excellent range of topics without bogging down on them.In addition to covering the core keywords "select", "from", "where", and so forth, he talks about imbedded SQL (which I rely on heavily when I use VB or work on web pages), stored procedures, and what ODBC is, to mention only a few extra topics.Finally, the translator should be commended for readable, fluent English.

2-0 out of 5 stars WARNING !!!
The disk supplied with the book (contains the database to work the exercises) will not easily install on Windows NT.I have contacted the author (via e-mail) and the database manufacturer for more installationinstructions but have not yet received any help.Without the informationon the supplied disk the learning process is less than complete.

I ordered this book through amazon.com when there where no reviews-- tooka chance and did it ever pay off.So now i'm writing a review for the nextguy who is looking for a good book to get HANDS-ON sql experience with.You should have some understanding of relational databases and abasicunderstanding of sql to get the maximum from this book, but that's notnecessary, first time sql self-teachers stand to benefit greatly from italso.I definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to gain furtherunderstanding of SQL and relational databases. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars The one and only COM/COM+ Reference......
It is normal for me to use allot of different books for reference, but in terms of the global based COM technologies that number it maximum. For example, I would usually use for reference regarding COM the book by Don Box, Essencial COM. On the other way if I was working with ActiveX I normally had hanging around Understanding ActiveX and OLE, Visual C++ ActiveX COM. And finally if I was working on COM+ usually my I would grab anything I could get my hands on and for DCOM, my favourite pet was the DCOM Unleashed!!5-0 out of 5 stars COM/COM+ programmer's essencial

Mike Owens started writing about SQLite in Linux Magazine and C/C++ User's Journal, and he continues to show his clear and easy manner of explaining the features and use of this embedded database in this book, which Apress binds as a hardcover to show off its usefulness and longevity.

SQLite is extremely comprehensive.The book is very thorough, and I highly recommend it if you are considering the use of a non-server database management system.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book
Definitive is definitely the right title for this book.It coverseverything from the SQLite console commands to the interpreter language bindings (Tcl, Perl, Ruby, etc) to the C API.I've been using SQLite for several years, and learned new stuff before I hit page 30.

MDX Solutions is an essential reference book for anyone using Analysis Services 2005. No other book covers the subject as thoroughly as this one. However, it remains only a reference book.

The first edition of MDX Solutions is without a doubt the MDX bible. My copy goes with me wherever I may encounter any MDX-writing requirements. It is by far the most tattered, thumbed-through textbook I own.

5-0 out of 5 stars Still quite relevant for Sybase developers
Although there aren't too many Sybase databases anymore, quite a few firms (esp. in Finance) have them and if you find yourself working with Sybase I strongly recommend this book. It's been a great. The sections on Error handling (Ch.9), transactions and locking (Ch.11) and built-in Functions (Ch.12) have been invaluable over the years.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good resource for T-SQL information
I purchased my copy back in 1999 and it is one of my favorite SQL books.I find the information very accurate and relevant to the MS SQL versions (6.5 & 7.0) printed on the cover of the book.I think it was the best SQL book for many years.Since 1999, many books for newer versions of database servers have been published.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good book with easy-to-find answers to your questions
Judging from the other reviews here, people either love this book or they hate it.I love it.This book has proved invaluable to me over the years, and I still reference it on occassion.Whenever I have a question about something, the answer is easy to find.It *is* out of date, as other reviewers have noted, but the majority of information contained within is still valid.

1-0 out of 5 stars Does not cover the important new features
I bought the book, based on previous positive critics here (Amazon).The implication was that this book covers the new features of SQL Server 2005.Well, the first one that I was looking for, the PIVOT (crosstab) is not even mentioned, let alone covered even briefly.I did not search all the new features, but if you want a book that cover both old and new features, this one is certainly NOT the one that you should look for.
5-0 out of 5 stars Practical and Usable
The authors have experience both as T-SQL developers and trainers, and it shows. Essential concepts and techniques are explained clearly without talking down to the reader. There's thorough coverage of the most commonly used T-SQL elements, in an easy-to-read style. It's well organized and includes appendices and a good index, making it easy to use as a reference. I work with both SQL Server 2000 and 2005, so it's ideal that the book covers both environments.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good for non-techie beginners!
I don't consider myself a techie but recently became interested in learning more about SQL and how it can help me do my job more efficiently. I found the structure, content and style of this book to be very useful in my quest to teach myself the program. It was easy to understand and helped me to learn the basics with a hands-on approach. My lack of experience caught up to me in some of the later chapters but overall I found the book extremely informative and I've benefited greatly from reading it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU (NOVICE TO EXPERIENCED)
ATTN:If you are a beginner, or if you just want to brush up on your MYSQL skills, then this is the book.I also purchased two other MYSQL books but they are not half as easy to read as this.Ben Forta is technical but explains everything in such a way that anyone could learn this stuff.He provides detailed examples in this book as well as well as GOOD explanations of how the code is to be used and why.THIS IS A VERY QUICK READING BOOK AND IF YOU NEED TO LEARN FAST, THEN WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR... BUY THE CHEAP BOOK!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Ben Forta is G-d
Ben Forta is easily the most readable and to-the-point technical writer I know of. He includes all the right details at the right time. Example: all the books tell you how to do selects and how to create databases and tables, but the bury the simple detail of how to CONNECT to a database. Do you have any idea how many sql books neglect this extraordinarily important point? In ben's book it's right up front. And that's only one example. Buy the book for yourself and see.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good start but missing many parts
This is a good starter book, and I bought it thinking it would be a good supplement to O'Reilly's Learning SQL version. Since I started with the O'Reilly version first, this book was relatively useless to me.
