5-0 out of 5 stars McConnell's high level approach to Project Management remains valuable even today. Be sure to read McConnell's recent texts.
The Software Project Survival Guide [Steve McConnell] remains applicable today as when first published in 1995. McConnell has a clear knack for combining research, experience, and theory.His writing style is clear, concise, and easy to understand (introduction level programmer through to management).
5-0 out of 5 stars Software leads need this book
Software Project Survival Guide is one of the best books I've ever read about leading a software project. The author is not trying to sell any specific process or methedology, instead the book is full of down-to-earth practical advice about software development. If you are a software lead, new or old timer, read this book. If you are a software manager, buy a copy of this book for every one of your leads.

4-0 out of 5 stars Common sense approach for all projects
Most of us have been involved with software projects that we would just as soon forget--or at least run away from screaming. If you want to learn how software projects should be run, or how to run one correctly yourself, then Steve McConnell presents a straightforward, common-sense approach that can be applied to all types of projects. The companion web site provides a complete collection of templates to support all aspects of managing a software project. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Start
This manuel was an excellent start for some of us "dummies" out there.Though I have signed up for a Project Class to be taken in person, this book as definately helped me to get by with a little help from the Dummy Writers.
4-0 out of 5 stars a real dummy review
great, worked for me.use this and the on line tutorial

4-0 out of 5 stars Great place to start
Facing the new year with numerous relatively small projects that I felt were out of control, I resolved to take action. I believed that my planning tasks were unlikely to tax the abilities of Project 2003, and was not really interested in knowing every detail of the software. I picked up this book, and was able to read the sections of interest--about 75% of the content--on a flight from Atlanta to San Jose. I was not disappointed. By the evening of January 10, my three most pressing projects were organized, resources were assigned, and realistic finish dates had been determined. The book gave me the information I needed to get results without false starts. While the attempts at folksy humor can be a tad annoying, the prose is generally clear and understandable. I doubt this is the book for you if you are managing a major project with dozens of people. However, if your projects are jobs like press releases, webinars, and minor software releases, you will likely be well served by it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I Recommend The New Game Maker Book To Everyone In Even Slight Interest
"The Game Maker's Apprentice" was the greatest book I've ever read. Not Kidding. I read the entire book in 2 and 1/2 days. I even skipped dinner the first day. The Game Maker's Apprentice comes with a CD-rom including all of the resources and finished games mentioned in the book and games that show step-by-step how to program it. I recommend it to ANYONE who is interested in the Computer Gaming or Video Gaming field. Not only does the book teach you how to program 9 great games and show you how all of the steps of game creation can be fun, but it also has 3 chapters specifically based on extending your games with tips by professionals.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for learning game oriented programming.
This book is an excellent resource for learning the fundamentals of game programming and the logic necessary to be successful at it. The book is well written, easy to follow and understand. The tutorials are fun and the games you create, while relatively simple, are quite enjoyable. The 3 or so chapters on game development are also sound and offer some excellent insight into making a good game. The Game Maker software included with the book, with it's built in programming language, is surprisingly powerful and intuitive. Additionally, Game Maker has a very strong on-line presence and has an extremely active forum for asking questions that aren't covered, or are beyond the scope of the book. (And it's all free too!!)
5-0 out of 5 stars Must have book for Game Maker 6.1 software
Easy to follow color book for beginners, you make a game in no timeand come with cd-rom with all the resources to built the games.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Pragmatic RUP Introduction
There is plenty of theory written about RUP, but how it should be applied to your role or your project is often misunderstood.
5-0 out of 5 stars You need this book if you're doing RUP
This book does a great job of showing steps of practical application of the RUP.The book may seem repetitive on a few points, but I feel the points bear repeating.This book has been invaluable in helping cut through the misinformation thrown around by some who have gotten the executive summary of RUP and know just enough to be dangerous. I recently completed a seven-part online course on the RUP that was based on this book.The book did a far better job of making the RUP understandable.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best way to understand RUP
I teach RUP classes in Brazil and the most difficult thing for the students is to understand the core practices of RUP(what I like to call Agile RUP) without getting swallowed by all the details of the hundreds activities, artifacts, roles, guidelines, etc.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good General Reference
As the title, and most of the reviews (save Mr. Strauchs') suggest, this is the manual that doesn't exist in print. It's a nice alternative to the Help menu as it's written in a personable style that offers more direct and real-world applications for the basics of FileMaker.
5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough, complete, yet easy to understand; well-done tutorials
Concur with all the other reviewers that this is THE best, most complete, yet easy-to-follow guide to FileMaker Pro [FMP]. The authors really have gone out of their way in using plain words to describe arcane concepts, and the illustrations are well executed. Although there are the usual typos and occasional ambiguous/misleading statements, there is a continuously updated website with 'Errata' and sample completed tutorial exercises. [If these were included on a CD with the book, this book would warrant a super-nova rating!]
5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Are you a programmer that has been working with FileMaker for a while? If you are, then this book is for you! Authors Geoff Coffey and Susan Prosser, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that explores each feature in depth, offers shortcuts and workarounds, and explains the ramifications of options that a FileMaker Pro manual doesn't even mention.

5-0 out of 5 stars The new way to develop J2EE enterprise applications.
The latest and greatest about designing and building J2EE based enterprise applications is all within this book. The Spring Framework is a perfect compliment to strong object oriented design principles and techniques that should be leveraged for any J2EE solution. This book discusses both the strengths and weaknesses to the old EJB framework and talks about why Spring Framework is a good alternative.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent intro and tutorial
This book covers most of the major topics in Spring. I used it to get started with Spring and to teach others. I like the comparisons they draw between Spring and J2EE. The book does a great job of introducing IoC an then moves into more complex/interesting topics.
2-0 out of 5 stars Sloppy by and large
Some chapters (the basic Spring) are ok (even good.) Many advanced topics are covered in a sloppy manner. Further the editing is generally bad. I must say that I have read a finely edited book by Manning, namely Hibernate In Action. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Unique is not best, but best in it's class
This is not the best hands-on, how-to book about designing your ownUnreal Tournament mod but it is the only book available. Thus, like the first Gutenberg printing press, it's the best in it's class! In the tutorials the authors assume that you already know as much about the Unreal Editor as they do. If you do not know the in's and out's and idiotsyncrasies of the Unreal Editor(which is why I bought the book in the first place) you will learn new definitions of patience during the first 23 chapters. In the end you will thank the authors for their altruism and capatalistic guile without which this knowledge would not be publicly available. Thank G-d and the great Satan for freedom of information! Thank America for the freedom to say this!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book!
I was brand new to all aspects of game design, and I had no idea where to start.So I opened up the book preview in the Unreal Tournament folder and saw this book.I went up to borders and bought it a week later.I've had this book for almost 3 weeks now, and Holy Crap!From the start, it explains the history of the Unreal engine and gives you a close up look of all the tools used.It has in-depth tutorials that make designing your first map a breeze.The CD contained in the book also has the May 5 Personal Learning Edition on it.In fact, the CD is my only complaint.This book expects you to use the CD for every texture and static mesh used.Overall, the book is a must buy for any begginner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Unreal Mapping.
This book is the best and only one book published in Unreal technology nobody beat this tutorial book for mapping in Unreal tournament 2004 I recommend this thick book to anyone wanting to master the Unreal editor.

2-0 out of 5 stars great info - terrible editing
This book came so highly recommended it seemed like a sure thing. And in fact, it has a wealth of info on use cases; I can certainly see it being a valuable reference for someone who is already an expert with use cases. For those with no previous exposure, however, it is a tiresome morass to wade through; so cluttered and muddled that finding the underlying meaning becomes a real challenge. This book could have been edited to 2/3rds the size, and been a far better book because of it. Was the editing staff on vacation?

5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST book about use cases
I teach the official IBM Rational training called Requirements Management with Use Cases here in Brazil.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great book
This is the best book i have read on use case modeling. Pitfalls are covered in great detail. The book is well structured. The only negative thing i can think off, if I have to state one, is that the author sometimesgives better definitions of terms in places where you would not expect to find them. Still all definitions are more consistent, than I have seen in other books related to usecase modeling. ... Read more

This book tells me what RootKit really means. One useful thing I got from this book was that in Windows Kernel even simple code can be used against security. And that's it. Most techniques in this book are primitive to kernel developers. I don't recommend this book to serious kernel driver developers. "Windows Internals" and OSR Online should be the way to go. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars detailed advice about designing
Clements shows how to use various notations to document your software design. Of these, perhaps UML is now the most common. The advice in the text can be used to first design your code, before programming. Certainly, you should somehow have a design laid out first. You do, don't you?
5-0 out of 5 stars The best to date
Software architecture really is unlike any other aspect of its design. The architecture has deeper meaning and larger scale than any other aspect, and can't be discussed in the same ways.3-0 out of 5 stars Quite skimpy
This is not a bad introductory documentation book, but quite skimpy in the amount of information and examples it contains.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars great way to learn SAS
This package, software and booklet, provides a great and affordable tool for leaning SAS.Unlike most educationally priced software, SAS LE does not require you to be a student in a degree granting program, and/or prove it with a student ID.Personally I am very impressed by the fact that SAS recognizes that "official" students are not the only ones trying to learn on a budget.The software is limited in that you can only display and process the first 1000 rows of your dataset, however this will be sufficient for most of the intended audience for this product, who are simply interested in learning how to use SAS.Another drawback is that the software expires, and will apparently not operate after December 1, 2008, so the value of the product diminishes with time before you buy it.The enclosed booklet is helpful, but not very in-depth, and you will probably want to buy the little SAS book or some other resource to get the most out of this product.You can see what procedures the software is capable of at support.sas.com/le, and there are some links to additional resources there too.For those who used the first edition of this software, you will probably be pleased to know that the annoying cartoon genie help character is gone, which makes the interface look a lot more professional if nothing else.Overall this is a great educational tool for learning SAS, and I highly recommend it.

4-0 out of 5 stars SAS Learning Edition 2.0 (SAS/EG 2.0 & SAS 8.2)
The SAS Institute has finally released a limited (record limit and expiration date) version that is affordable to anyone.
1-0 out of 5 stars Underwhelming
Make no mistake about it, SAS is a great product. But this CD and manual leave alot to be desired. The SAS webpage made it sound like this SAS|LE 2.0 CD would be robust, but with limitations to the amount of records you can use (to prevent it from being used instead of the real product). That is what I wanted: an app that taught me many of the features from SAS|base, SAS|stat and SAS|graph. It turns out SAS Learning Edition is a very stripped down SAS|base. The only thing it teaches is where to find the menus on the User Interface. The few simple descriptive statistics that you can put together are done just as easily in Excel or in free spreadsheet packages.

5-0 out of 5 stars i love GHH
i have read tonnes of books on this subject.starting from secrets of a super hacker by knightmare(published way back in 94, trust me dat was a great read n even 2day i find myself glued to da back as the first time i read it.now coming back 2 gray hat hacking.this is wat i would like 2 call the hacking reference book for the next generation.every one concerned about security should consider picking up this book.u might as well save some money n picking up more knowledge than any of the hacking exposed books in the market.no this book is not for button clicking script kiddies who play around wid trojans n claim to be hackers or web defacers(lamers).if u belong to da breed of script kiddies pick up this disgustin book by ankit fadia (oh by the way ive reviewed it).i wouuld liek to congradulate the authors for the outstanding work put into this book.howeever it would be great to see expanded materials on various topics and a little more detail in tool description.its not bad but it could still be better.so as i said before get dis book u wont regret it.so kiddies grow up keep those hacking exposed n ankit fadias books apart throw em in da firplace burn em do anythin .but go get dis one
4-0 out of 5 stars Covers more than the typical hacking book
"Gray Hat Hacking - The Ethical Hacker's Handbook" is not your normal hacking book.This book should not be lumped in with the "Hacking Exposed" series nor the likes of "Counter Hack".What differentiates Gray Hat Hacking (GHH) from other books is the amount of code the book offers.This book is not for script kiddies, but instead shows how to advance to the next level of hacking (and, more importantly, prevention) by devoting over 100 pages to developing programming skills for both Linux and Window exploits.I had not encountered a book that dedicated this much space to scripting.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great buy for every IT dept.
I bought this book from a store in D.C, and read it on my way back to India. I was impressed. Never found any book that deals with computer security and software vulnerabilities written so well. The reason I like this book is than others is because it does not only give you information that can help you in assessing your network security, but also gives you a basic introduction to the laws and legal technicalities. The contents of this book cover most of computer/network security related areas including technical implementation, planning, and defense. Therefore, it is not only for system engineers, but also for people managing IT departments.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great reference for webmasters or small business owners
If you rate a computer book on how well it succeeds at being difficult and obscure, you won't like this one.It skips the geek pretensions and just delivers useful information, in a way that is accessable to small business owners and webmasters.The screenshots may not appeal to everyone, but I found them incredibly useful because they allow me to quickly find the screen I'm working on.
3-0 out of 5 stars Mixed Bag of Content
In a nutshell, Google's Analytics service is a web traffic analyzer and marketing performance manager provided for free to anyone with a Google account, but especially geared to those who participate in their AdWords program.This book serves as an introduction and walkthrough guide to Google's Analytics service for those that do not already know about it.The authors have written this title in a in a "for dummies" format, primarily for small web site authors and bloggers that have not had experience in web traffic analysis software before.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Find
Google Analytics is one of the best finds for those of us who find ourselves technically-challenged in a technically-heavy world.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great resource for foreign PMs
I recently moved to the US and while I managed software products in my native country, I wasn't familiar with the process or all of the terms used in the US.This book was very helpful as it didn't complicate or assume anything. Software is hard enough to manage - books about managing it shouldn't be.I appreciated that.The templates at the end saved me a lot of time and expense.I never expect any one book to answer all questions but for me, this book was a great help in my recent transition.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Way to Learn & Confirm Product Management
As I went to go and post a review of this book, I was shocked to see some of the negative reviews that are here.This book was fantastic in that it was simple, clear, and comprehensive.I've been a product manager for over 15 years and have managed product managers for the last 7.I work in a very successful software company and have been a successful PM.I was looking for a tool to help train my staff and this book was recommended by one of my colleagues at another company who is also a succsssful manager of PMs.I am glad I listened to my friend and not the people who think they know too much and need boast this via an Amazon book review.From my perspective, this book really helps - it helps new PMs understand what they are expected to do and how to do it.It also confirmed for me what I should expect of my employees and gave me some really staightforward tools to use, even after all these years.If you want a solid and accurate view of software product management, this is it.If the book missed anything, it was how to deal with unfulfilled engineering types....maybe next version?

2-0 out of 5 stars If this book is helpful to you, you have no business being in software product management
This book might have been essential back in 1998 when any goof with a good idea started a software company.But we've moved WAY beyond that.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very nice book
A must buy for students or researchers who need numerical methods. Comprehensive topics. A good place to start to deeper levels. Online book is good for quick look.

5-0 out of 5 stars A classic, and still worth having
"Numerical Recipes" has been a staple in computing libraries for many years, and for good reason. It provides immediately usable implementations of all the workhorses of numerical computation, in production-quality form. Maybe there are better implementations out there, FFTW for example, but getting something to work correctly always comes before getting it to work fast. Numerical computation is a specialty, and vanishingly few of us are specialists. As a result, getting this much specialist knowledge for the price of a very few hours' wage, fully debugged and documented, is a great bargain.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great compilation of numerical routines for C programmers
I found this book indispensible in my effort to develop profitable trading systems for futures and options and in my research in factor analysis and, more recently, in chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. Anyone who programs in C or C++ and works with mathematics must have this book. It covers a surprisingly wide range of algorithms: routines are included for everything from handling Julian dates and solving systems of linear equations to determining eigenvectors and singular value decompositions, solving differential equations, doing numerical integration (quadrature), not to mention calculating fast fourier transforms, lomb periodograms and maximum entropy spectral analyses. While not always state-of-the-art, the routines are quite reliable (when used correctly), clearly-written, and easy to understand and use. I would strongly recommend this book (and the companion software) to anyone who programs in C and is literate in mathematics. I always keep a copy nearby.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Text Book
This was the assigned text for a class I took. It was an excellent text book: clearly written, well organized, and easy to study. The key points jump off the page and are repeated for emphasis. What's more, this text is so valid that I have already begun to use it at work, and expect it will remain in my reference library for a long time. It is a rare textbook that is worth it's price.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Book
I was assigned this book for my project management class. This book is straight-forward and to the point. It gives comprehensive insight into the world of managing projects.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nothing extraordinary. Decent coverage of basic and advanced concepts alike.
There are quite a few books on spring framework in the wild and since I have read every one of them, I take the privilege to say that this book is not the best among them.
5-0 out of 5 stars Book like a stone.
I can't say nothing bad about this book.
4-0 out of 5 stars A great place to start learning about Spring
This book has given me a broad overview of all of the different parts of the Spring Framework, from the basic Inversion of Control (IoC) pattern (aka Dependency Injection), through advanced ApplicationContext configuration, to O/R mapping, application security, and last but not least, Spring's MVC framework. I had been struggling through the online docs but the book really helped me to see the big picture, and really grok IoC.
