5-0 out of 5 stars good for beginners
It is a very good guide book for beginners really. I knew maybe just a little about Mac. But definitely not enough to help me go though a smooth work process. This book teaches me shortcuts and the necessary surviving skills I needed. I would recommend to other people.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good Tutorial
Having switched from a PC a year ago and having suffered through 12 months with no manual, it is a relief to have it. It is written in plain English, very basic intro to Tiger OS X and should absolutely have been provided to customers free with the computer. Apple is too cute in assuming everyone, of course, is intuitive about "getting" its system. If you've spent much time in PC land it is a huge transition. This book is great because it assumes no knowledge and provides basic definitions. I also bought another "Missing Manual" for iPhoto and that was helpful, as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have resource for Mac users

5-0 out of 5 stars Very well written
I liked this book because it does a great job explaining the concepts and the reasoning behind the mathematical formulae. Other books such as "The Elements of Statistical Learning" toss the Math formulas at you and expect you to figure out the significance or the importance of 'em. The book does not shy away from Math - but does a great job presenting it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to top machine learning techniques
Duda's 'Pattern Classification' is an excellent book for an introduction to a range of the most powerful and popular machine learning methods. Obviously it doesn't go into very many details of each method - being just one book - but it covers the most important things to know imo. Not quite the 20% that covers 80% of the needs, but close. It is well written and the illustrations are generally of high quality. If you don't want to drown in a nightmare of details and exceptions, but rather get a good basic understanding of the various techniques, this book is an excellent buy.

3-0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to pattern recognition, but not a bible.
[1] This book is good as an introduction to Pattern Recognition, at undergraduate level (compared with the level of Fukunaga's -Introduction to Statistical Pattern Recognition-).

4-0 out of 5 stars A great book to learn MS Project 2003 AND scheduling techniques
I purchased this book as part of the "Microsoft Office Project 2003 Orange Belt Self Study Package" from IIL (Institute for International Learning). For those who understand the basic concepts of project management, the book is extremely educational as it will teach you the basics of MS Project, as well as various project scheduling techniques that you may not have been aware of.
5-0 out of 5 stars Reveals Many MSP Issues-but Not for Beginners
This book will not teach you how to perform 'work planning' (or scheduling) and it will not teach you the basics of how to use MS Project.I have at least 5 thick books that do that, and I consider most of them useless.I have been managing IT projects since the 1980s, and have used MS Project (MSP) since the early 1990s. I have spent many late hours struggling with its confusing and misleading and Poorly documented) functions that do not always do what you expect (or the help/manual says)it will do.I particulary dislike it's seemingly random choice to recalc a critical path, and changes dates and durations based only on resources.In June, my team (an experienced set of IT project managers)took advanced MS Project training from the "International Institute for Learning". All 15 people who attended the training said it was the best MS project training they had ever had!
5-0 out of 5 stars Solid book
I bought this book off to help me with scheduling.I found it to be both comprehensive and fun; Using examples at the end of each chapter to reinforce the learning.I tend to refer back to it whenever I'm planning a new project.This book was well worth my time and energy. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A managerial overview of agile methodologies
A complete overview of the most important agile methodologies available. The authors have done a great job gathering, analyzing and summarizing the most important facts concerning XP, Scrum, Evo and UP. You will be told about pros and cons, success factors, risks to consider and implementation flavors (common customized implementation practices). Just don't get confused about the purpose of the book, because you won't be able to implement the methodologies just by reading it. You'll be into a better position to take a more informed decision about the methodology that best fits your development team. For the implementation process you'll surely need extra references focused on each specific methology.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great summary of agile methods.
The first portion of the book provides a good and relatively specific overview of the rationale behind agile methods, as compared to waterfall.Great material if you need to write a proposal to move to an agile method.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview to the topic
I found this to be an excellent review to the topic of agile development.It methodically covers Scrum, XP, UP and Evo, and unlike other computer books, provides detailed references and a bibliography, so you can see how the author got to his conclusions. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A NATIVE WINDOWS C GUIDING ANGEL

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best Window programming books
This book is one of the best because it forms a foundation for everything that comes after. If you want to understand Windows, you have to have it. It doesn't cover advanced topics, but in order to understand advanced Windows programming, you need to understand everything in this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great foundation book

5-0 out of 5 stars Complement to other sources available
I think author did a wonderful job filling in where other popular litrature about PIX left off.I read the CCSP book, and leared alot.This book filled in stuff that CCSP book just does not talk about.Not to knock the CCSP book; each auther can only fill in so much.It is a difficult decision on what to keep and what to leave off.I find the PIX and ASA book is very practical.If you want a good understanding of this platform, then you want this book as the pliers in your tool box of knowledge.Do not expect it to be swiss army tool though.I think author was especially considerate to the reader's needs to publish items that other litrature just does not cover.There is alot of good information.Nice pictures which addressed questions I had and even posted to some CCIE sites and there was no answer.Definately worth buying.

3-0 out of 5 stars Very little on ASA
This book is very helpful for PIX firewalls, but is mislabeled for ASA. There is very little on the ASA product. Usually just a mention of command differences between ASA and PIX. If you are looking for a book on ASA do not buy this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars very technical
The book was ok but it made for very difficult reading; it was very technical.I had to purchase it for class.Luckily I had a good professor who could break down the concepts more clearly.I would, however, suggest that Devry get an easier book to digest next time.

4-0 out of 5 stars Strategic Management of Technology and Innovation
This book includes many good papers and many hi-tech business cases associated with technology and innovation management. Some of them are a little old but still useful to understand strategic management. If you have learned general management and marketing and want to get a view of the management of technology and innovation, this is worthwhile reading.

4-0 out of 5 stars a useful collection of case studies and key papers
This book offers a large number of case studies from the areas of research and technology development in various industries. It covers most the important concepts of technology management such as "corecompetencies". It follows the traditional model employed in businessschools: learning from others' experiences by means of case studies.Particularly relevant are the sections on "heavyweight teams". ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Classic
Some problems are solved in this business and answers are published in one place. "Compilers" is a solved problem. This is the one place to see the solution.

5-0 out of 5 stars still definitive after 20 years
For twenty years, this book has stood as the definitive text on compiler design. Many programmers use a compiler to write programs. Only a small subset actually write [or debug] compilers. It is for the latter that the book is dedicated. Though perhaps the broader group of programmers could also benefit ["culture"] from knowing the general ideas in the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy it
This book takes you through the CLR and explains how and why it works. The aurthor teaches you about the metadata all the way down to whats inside the internal data sructures the CLR uses. You will learn about what gets put on the stack and heap and what data, and in what order things are on the stack and heap. There is so much to the CLR and its difficult to put it all down. This book does a good job at explaining it all in an orginized easy to read fasion. At first glance this book looks like its just an introduction to the .NET Framework and then a C# language tutorial starting with the primitive types and then moving on up to generics. This is not the case, it starts off explaing the what the .NET Framework is and the CLRs execution model. Then it goes into metadata and application configuration and installation. Then it gets into the nitty gritty. It starts you off explaining the types in chapter 4, this insnt just a tutorial to ints and objects, it takes you deep under the covers. You will also get a good understanding of the various tools, like NGen.exe and when and why you should and shouldnt use it. There is alot of difficult content in this book, you will atleast understand it better if you read this. There is so much about this book that I can say but all I need to say is buy it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential CLR Internals
I echo the positive reviews below. If you already know the .Net platform fairly well and want to understand the internals of the CLR, this is the best place to start. This edition is as good or better than his 1.0/1.1 version, Applied .Net Framework Programming.

4-0 out of 5 stars For advanced developers
This book gives a deep view of the CLR and framework. You can find tips for performance, and complete description of many functionalities of the framework. The bad think of this book, is that don't come with a CD, and because this, you lost a quick find and a way to carry the book with you. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Not for the newbie!
Definitely not for the newbie.This is for the seasoned access programmers.I you are new to programming (at least in access) and are looking for a book on how to program with access, this is not for you.This is a great book for those seasoned programmers who are looking to make their applications better.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Solid, useful book for development of Access Applications.
Easy to read first few chapters with basic design info, remainder of the book focuses on complete applications that can serve as a template/best practice for almost any other MS Access application.
5-0 out of 5 stars I've learned much in the first 3 chapters
As a self-taught Access developer for the past eight years, I have an extensive library of books dealing with beginneing to advanced areas of Access. I bought this book to add to my library, figuring it to be another reference item. However, in a casual browsing of the content, I discovered this book has much more to offer. I was pleasantly surprised to see information on levels of magnitude for linked tables, never having known that the number of sub folders for linked tables can affect the speed of reading from them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Reading to Pass PMP Exam
I bought and borrowed many books to study for the PMP exam and this was the BEST book, both in the material it covered and the way in which the material was presented. It is one of the few that take your through the project management process as you would really experience it, from project inception to closeout. Most other books geared toward the PMP exam organize the material based on the PMI knowledge areas, which have so much overlap it becomes confusing. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. I passed the exam using this book and the quizes in Rita Mulcahy's PMP Exam Prep, which follows the knowlege areas. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for Beginners! Many errors.
The book is definitely not for teaching beginners, it is to prepare for the MOS cetification. However, many exercises have some sort of mistakes, either instructional or numeric type mistakes so that the exercises CANNOT be assigned as home work, but have to be done with the students in class and the "BUGS" worked out before they can do them on their own. It is a real shame to release a study book without proof reading it first and correcting the mistakes. An individual who is studying for the MOS Excel certification can get some good information from the book, but a student will be very confused if not very frustrated using it. Even as an instructor I get frustrated over the numerous errors. I have one suggestion: I'll correct the errors if the author/publisher pays me for doing the work.

5-0 out of 5 stars Microsoft Office Excel 2003 Step by Step
This is the book you need to ;earn Excel. Included is a CD and the reading is very easy and understandable.

1-0 out of 5 stars Run away from this book.
The first two chapters in this book are just a straightforward explanation of the Excel worksheet. The third chapter is where you are supposed to begin learning how to use Excel. The very first section in the chapter -- creating formulas to calculate values -- starts with an example that is wrong! You cannot perform the calculation given by the author by following his instructions. Instead, you receive an error message. This particular calculation is an absolutely basic one for using Excel. A visit to Microsoft's website does not provide you with a correction for that or anything else. Any reputable publisher -- O'Reilly for instance -- always has a link where you can find errors corrected. I stopped using the book at this point and purchased Excel 2003 Personal Trainer. I have not found an error in that book and I have completed four of the chapters. It appears Microsoft Excel 2003 Step by Step is in the best tradition of Microsoft products. Their operating system gives us viruses, infections, spyware, trojans, and adware. (This is why Microsoft's new operating system is called VISTA.) This book gives us the printed version of these problems -- poorly written text. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars XVII vs 17 - Names Matter
You know how much it helps to choose nice names for the variables in your programs - yes you will have seen some of these patterns before, but having the nice names to think with can be like Roman vs Decimal numerals - XVII or 17, there's a difference.Searching for [ Tidwell Interfaces ] you can find the author's site, which has free excerpts. Amazon lacks an "online excerpts available" pattern, is this good business or not, hmm.

5-0 out of 5 stars collection of interface design patterns
this is not a "how to design interfaces" book - more of a "here is what has worked in the past when people designed interfaces". it's great for inspiration, as its examples range across web apps, desktop apps, mobile devices and others.

4-0 out of 5 stars Clearly written, thoughtful content
I enjoyed this book for two reasons:

2-0 out of 5 stars On topic, but needs much better editing
I read and studied this book," Official (ISC)2 Guide to the CISSP Exam", for my one study aid in quick preparation for the CISSP exam. I found the book's coverage of topics and the common body of knowledge to be fine; indeed the book is tuned to the CISSP exam's intended scope rather well. The problem with this book is quality control and the details. Just to get it out of the way, what annoyed me the most is that many of the sample "exam questions" are flawed lacking quality control. Not flawed like the CISSP exam questions themselves are known to be, but simply poorly written. The answer section for the sample questions has many flaws and mistakes: such as mixing up answers for other chapters' questions, unfinished text, etc. A frustrating way to end each chapter.
5-0 out of 5 stars Cosider a must-have
I rate this book very hight because it is a serious content / concept based book for not only the exam but to really make things clear that it covers.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good book, but not end-all be-all
A very useful resource for anybody interested in the field of Information Security. It provides an overview of the 10 bodies of knowledge that candidates for the CISSP exam are required to master. However, while this book is excellent as reference material, it is not as suitable as a study guide. Due to the nature of the book (it is authorized by many different writers), there is quite a bit of repetition of material, and slightly different viewpoints on what often appears to be the same issue. Sometimes, the differences between the viewpoints are not clearly articulated, which may lead to confusion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Deke - PhotoShop - McClelland
I am sure there are other books that might be easier to follow and that might offer more than this one for learning all of what PhotoShop has to offer, but I just have not found them yet. Light to read with easy step by step instructions for the beginner as well as the accomplished image processor.
5-0 out of 5 stars One-on-One -- it's not just another Photoshop book
Deke McClelland knows his subject very well and presents it in a clear and orderly way so new learning rests on a solid foundation. The format works: read the lesson, watch the DVD-ROM video lesson, do the exercises, take the quiz at the end of the chapter. Each lesson is designed to be understandable by those without much Photoshop experience and still include a few techniques that even experienced users probably don't know. And he does it all with good humor. Work files and video lessons are all included on the DVD-ROM in the book, which is bound so it lies open and flat on the desk without any hassle.
5-0 out of 5 stars The perfect jumpstart for Photoshop newbies
This was the jumpstart I needed to learning photoshop.This is not so much a tutorial as it is a get-up and start-using photoshop one-on-one session, exactly as the title suggests.So instead of learning the interface in text-book procedural fashion, it's kind of like apprenticing for the author Deke (who also wrote the photoshop bible book).BTW, the author is notably an Master at photoshop, as is apparent when he tells you "nobody uses this command, you can do that function with this new command here".There's a lot to be distracted in photoshop, hundreds and hundreds of different functions, and it turns out that many of these functions are obsolete and only left-in to satisfy old users, so having Deke point these things out is fantastic.Eg, unsharpen mask, obsolete.smart sharpen, da-shizzle.

Editorial Review

In most thrillers, "hardware" consists of big guns, airplanes, military vehicles, and weapons that make things explode. Dan Brown has written a thriller for those of us who like our hardware with disc drives and who rate our heroes by big brainpower rather than big firepower. It's an Internet user's spy novel where the good guys and bad guys struggle over secrets somewhat more intellectual than just where the secret formula is hidden--they have to gain understanding of what the secret formula actually is.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable but flawed techo-thriller
The National Security Agency's new and mighty code-cracking computer, TRANSLTR, has been working on a single puzzle for so long that the top cryptographer at "No Such Agency" (as it's nicknamed) can't believe her eyes when she sees its time elapsed counter. Her boss, Deputy Director Strathmore, has called her in on a Saturday because he trusts his protege to help him obtain the algorithm's pass-key without letting anyone else know what's going on. This algorithm, called Digital Fortress, is billed by its creator - a disgruntled and idealistic former NSA employee - as the only uncrackable encryption code ever written. Strathmore has fed it into TRANSLTR to test that claim. He must have the pass-key to carry out his plan for Digital Fortress, assuming it really can't be broken.
3-0 out of 5 stars Abridged CD was interesting, but...
Digital Fortress, the CD, was narrated by Bruce Sabath.Since I haven't read the unabridged version (and haven't read any other reviews of the abridged version), I can't comment whether the editors make a so-so story better or worse by cutting it down.In the abridged version, perhaps the unbelievable occurrences were tempered by the interest I had in the workings (real or imagined) of the ultra-secret NSA and the code-breakers.
2-0 out of 5 stars a little too far fetched
Maybe it's just the geek in me crying out for mercy, but I find a lot of the details of this book pretty far-fetched.Plus, after we figured out whodunit and such, it just seemed to drag on forever.I ended up skimming the last 30 pages or so just to get it over with.
