2-0 out of 5 stars Not very good for a new comer
This book does contain some good information.The problem, however, is that it is not easy to read or follow.This book contains too many non useful graphics and not enough detailed examples.In other words it's real pretty.At the end of each chapter there are Case Studies for the students.In many cases the book did not give enough information on how to complete them properly.I often found myself searching the internet to find answers.This book might be good for someone that has worked as an IT professional.As a new comer, however, I wouldn't recommend it.I'm going to search for a better book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great delivery response time.
The item was shipped promptly and arrived in great condition.Thanks so much for the timely shipping, as the text was used for spring semester at school.

1-0 out of 5 stars I have not received the product yet

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book for Linux kernel basics
This book presents the kernel basics in a lucid language with the necessary details, that both newbies and experienced kernel programmers can grasp. My favorite section is the one about the new 2.6 scheduler. A chapter on the open source community is also included towards the end.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good help if you try to understand the Linux Kernel
This book describe how kernel works and how was designed, it do not shows lines of code just shows you the way you have to write code into the kernel, I think is helpful if you try to undertand or write Linux Kernel code.

4-0 out of 5 stars Well written, but out of date
This book covers the linux 2.6 kernel, but does not apply to 2.6.15 (current kernel).Data structures for working with files have changed for example.If this book gets updated, it would be quite helpful.Its still a great starting place, but be prepaired to go through include files in the linux kernel source quite a bit.Since Linus lost the change logs for the kernel, its hard to compare notes on older kernels.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bridge the gap
Statistics books are either too hard or way too basic for non-statisticians.
3-0 out of 5 stars Lots of theory, not enough application
I've read the other reviews and I generally agree: This is a well written stats book, especially if you are trying to learn the underlying theories rather than just randomly banging around on a keyboard. However, don't expect this book to be a particularly good choice if you need to do anything much more difficult than a one-way ANOVA.Even though this book is 770+ pages long, Field doesn't address realistic scenarios. For example, even though he devotes about 210 pages to all sorts of ANOVA, there is no mention of repeated measures ANCOVA, which is not that unusual. In some places, he seems to suggest that something is really difficult (e.g., contrasts in repeated measures ANOVA) and then offers only weak examples of what to do about it with no mention of how to report what you've done. In fact, he offers very few examples of how to report results, and in some cases, his running examples are nonsignificant so his reporting examples stop short.All together, this is a good stats theory book with an intro to SPSS, but it's not the kind of book that is going to get you through many real-world analyses. I would recommend this book to undergraduates and graduate students who feel they need some more background, but folks in the field are better off looking elsewhere.

5-0 out of 5 stars This was exactly what I was looking for!
The author provides clear explanation of various statistic techniques; what each of them means, when to be applied, and how to use them in a very understandable way. This was what I was exactly looking for. Good examples with step by step guide with actual dialog boxes from the SPSS window are also very helpful. I really like it a lot. It was a good priced book considering what it provides. Best stat book I've bought ever! Thank you!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide with great strategies
I think this guide is a must-have for anyone seeking to venture into the dungeons *currently* in the game.The information goes well beyond the maps you have in the Atlas addon by providing details for quest lines and boss loot tables.The strategies alone make the book a worthwhile purchase.Those written for high level raids such as Blackwing Lair and Ahn Qiraj were developed by actual players -- and they work!This book is much loved by the people in my guild.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Starting Point for Channel Work
If you're just learning about channels, and want to learn ways to make your images look better, this book is a good start. Scott Kelby is certainly one of the most prolific pundits in the PS world, and here he assembles techniques from many sources. Explanations are simple, the techniques are tried-and-true, and the writing is not bad (albeit a bit corny). You'll get a lot better at Photoshop by incorporating these techniques into your workflow. It is indeed NOT meant for Elements users, and assumes use of CS2, although most methods can be used in earlier versions with minor modifications.
1-0 out of 5 stars Poor description
No part of the description of this item states that the book is only for Photoshop CS or CS2 users.Photoshop Elements 3 (which I have)is a software that is used widely and is still for sale in all software sales locations.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great explanation of channels in Photoshop
I bought this book because I was confused about channels. Mr. Kelby does a good job explaining, and showing by example, how to work with channels in Photoshop. I read the reviews before I bought this book and noticed the criticism about Kelby's "cute" writing style and lack of detail. I bought the book anyway because I wanted the information. This is a good to great book if you want to know about channels. If you already know a lot about channels you'll probably be disappointed. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A great book for SAS and statistics beginners
.. that is of little use for advanced users. Most of the book's chapters (1-4, 10-19) deal with general-purpose SAS programming techniques, and the rest introduce one to REG, ANOVA, TTEST, CORR, FACTOR and LOGISTIC procedures. Discussion isnon-technical and never in-depth, with the short shrift given to PROC REG especially disappointing. Many capabilities of selected procedures are not discussed, and, of course, a host of other important SAS/STAT procedures do not even make the cut. (MODEL? And speaking of non-statistical ones: what do you make of a book that devotes 200+ pages to SAS programming tips, including a chapter on merging datasets, and whose index has no mention of PROC SQL?) Overall, I think that the book is a friendly, clear and well-organized (as is typical of Ron Cody's writing) introduction for beginners, e.g. college stats students, but more seasoned statisticians should go straight to SAS/STAT User's Guide (available online). Don't even think about considering this (pricey) volume an up-to-date or reasonably broad reference on SAS's statistical capabilities.

2-0 out of 5 stars Blergh
I did not like this book. The organization was abysmal, and I decided to sell it back to the college bookstore for use by future hapless students, because it is not good as a reference guide.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good resource that is missing information
While the content that is coveredin the book is covered in very good detail there are gaps between what is tested on (based on the Measure Up practice tests on the compainion CD) and what is covered in the book. This book does not adequately cover IIS (no mentions of virtual directories for example), does not cover CHAP, MS-CHAP, EAP security. Very important details on how to use Sysprep need to be added (How to add additional drivers to sysprep images, building a single image for use on varied hardware).
5-0 out of 5 stars In depth and easy to read
This book is excellent. While I am pretty well versed in XP, this book is filling in the blanks nicely. The accompanying CD has a PDF of the book and some excellent multimedia presentation files on various subjects.
4-0 out of 5 stars Substance and Fluff
This book really does cover the most important topics in substantial detail.It's well worth the money in terms of enabling one to prepare for the exam.Just the same, it can put me to sleep like almost no other book - not because the technology is not interesting - but because it reads too much like a technical document with paragraph upon paragraph of hyper-specific, redundant detail such as: review the following questions, if you have difficulty answering them, go back and review this material until you feel comfortable with it, blah blah blah, zzz.This kind of content gets repeated in every section verbatim.Yuck!Just cut out the fat, and we would have at least a good three hundred pages less of fluff.Otherwise, well worth the money. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Accept no substitutes -- THE book to read on file systems
I decided to read and review three digital forensics books in order to gauge their strengths and weaknesses: "File System Forensic Analysis" (FSFA) by Brian Carrier, "Windows Forensics" (WF) by Chad Steel, and "EnCase Computer Forensics" (ECF) by Steve Bunting and William Wei.All three books contain the word "forensics" in the title, but they are very different.If you want authoritative and deeply technical guidance on understanding file systems, read FSFA.If you want to focus on understanding Windows from an investigator's standpoint, read WA.If you want to know more about EnCase (and are willing to tolerate or ignore information about forensics itself), read ECF.
5-0 out of 5 stars The best work on the topic
Carrier's book has prooven invaluable to this digital forensics trainee, and I expect many of the old hands in the field will be keeping it on hand as well.If you're serious about computer forensics, you need a copy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very deep
I'm pretty technical, so I enjoyed this book.The author has more on file systems than just about anywhere, and I found it helpful in non security work also just to understand how the different systems work.

4-0 out of 5 stars good resource
The text was a great resource.I also studied with an HR textbook, and this book was better.The author used a lot of first-person language instead of objective, third-person, which was kind of annoying to read.I also think that the study tests were lacking...more questions were needed to give a feel for the testing environment.It came with a CD with flashcards for the palm pilot...those were not very helpful..you could only have one set of 25 on the handheld at a time, and they were in a Q&A format, but the test is in multiple choice.

5-0 out of 5 stars I got my SPHR because of this book!
Great study tool if you want to "go it alone" preparing for the SPHR/PHR.

3-0 out of 5 stars A Good Resource only for HR Majors
Luckily I passed the PHR exam but I'm not sure this book was responsible for it.If you majored in Human Resources in college and need a refresher on the terms and concepts this book will work for you.It helps with the terms and concepts but will not help with the exam since most of the questions are subjective.

2-0 out of 5 stars Big Thick Book With Little Content: Beware!
I have more than 15 years of project management experience. I've read this and quite a few other PMP books from cover to cover. Most of the reviews on this page sound like a propaganda to me. This book gives you the impression that it's a big book and must be covering lots of material. But this, in my opinion, is not true. It's big due to the large font and because most of the space on each page is empty.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great book to study for the PMP!
I used this book along with two others. I took the exam before purchasing this book, and I did not pass, but after using this book, I passed with flying colors. The author organizes the material clearly and explains things very well. I wish I had purchased this book the first time!

Editorial Review

Just about every C programmer I respect learned C from this book. Unlike many of the 1,000 page doorstops stuffed with CD-ROMs that have become popular, this volume is concise and powerful (if somewhat dangerous) -- like C itself. And it was written by Kernighan himself. Need we say more? ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A good book but not for beginners
Long ago this book was required in one of my undergraduate classes. At that time, I really could not find it easy therefore put it aside and used other books for the class. It seemed hard at that point. Many years later I bought and used the C Primer Plus book ofStephen Prata which is an excellent book for beginning C. Later, I picked up this book from my library and looked at it, it seemed rather understandable and very good. I think this book is very good but beginner might find it hard to follow. I suggest you start with other books (I suggest C Primer Plus) and then come to this. It will be very beneficial that way.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the all time greats
For learning C programming, this book is the gold standard.It is unpretentious and to the point, assuming that you have the general concept of what it means to program a computer and want to learn the C language.It is gentle, but not touchy-feely, and guides you through what you need to know.
4-0 out of 5 stars Best book but not for beginners
Authored by the guy who invented the C language and the first edition of the book being the known standard for C for over a decade, this book is one of those unique books that is a must read if you want to learn how to program. Early on in the book the authors say that this book is not for a beginner programmer, so if you are a newbie in programming please pick up a different book before diving into this one. This book is also refereed to as the K&R C and is the bible for the C programming language. The text has a simple structure as well as style from the beginning it follows the same ideas of Unix as well as the C language (they invented Unix as well as C). The author defiantly knows the language although I did notice that some of the ideas were not clearly presented on some occasions. All the programs in the book compile perfectly and there are questions asked pertaining to the chapter and section. One of the downsides with all the books I read on C so far is that they do not give you the complete answers to the questions. This one is no different as there is no answers to the questions asked in the book ( you could buy the The C Answer Book: Solutions to the Exercises in the C Programming Language to actually find the answers). One issue was that the book assumes too much as is not a tutorial style book as other books. The book is also not up to date with the standards (after all the 2nd edition was published in 1988 well before the C99) so a new edition must come sooner or latter. I have read the book 2 times and I am still sketchy on some of the ideas presented with this book. The book is 185 pages although so it is straight to the point, but maybe the authors traded the number of pages with the ability to explain things more clearly. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Practically Worthless
If it didn't have a short precis of each mission, then it would be completely worthless. I was looking for something more along the lines of one of Andy Herd's FSX reviews found at Flightsim website.And Andy's reviews are free!I paid over $20 for this waste of time and paper.Does the writer, Bart G. Farkas, really think people buying this manual are looking to find out the basics of how a plane stays aloft?We wanted the FSX secrets, the down & dirty stuff that only a collaborator with the programmers could have written.What we got was a 2nd grade book report on the very basics of aviation.Save your money, or review a copy before purchasing. You've been warned.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fledglin
Although the reviewers of October 14, 2006 rated this FSX Guide very poorly. they have inadvertently strengthened the product by giving a very useful and informative errata to the Guide. We applaud their specificity. We also look forward to an immediate, upgraded corrected FSX Guide from Prim Game Guides.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor quality
There are many typographical errors.Even worse, the airspeed info is often inaccurate.For example, on page 107, the Boeing 737-800 is listed with a cruising speed of 477 kt but when you read the next line it states that the maximum speed is 147 kt.

I was looking for a book to cover hands-on issues not specified in the Logic manuals; what I found instead was a series of tutorials that mimic the information found in Logic. If the Logic Reference Manuals don't address a given topic - for example, dealing with latency issues or how to properly archive a project - don't expect it to be addressed here. You're paying for the same content covered again with better hands-on instruction, which may be of great benefit to beginners of the Digital Audio Workstation paradigm.
5-0 out of 5 stars Recommended
Being a long time Logic user, i still like to study this book to see which areas of Logic I'm still a novice in. What I like about this book, is the Structure, with the chapters and the Tasks to fulfill. So it get's me closer to a streamlined workflow. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars good for training, but seems incomplete
It is a good tool for exam practice, but doesn't seem too useful for practical network mapping, simulation, or planning.There's just too much that's incomplete.Commands are missing including some advanced routing protocol support, there's no support for larger switches, and some of the diagnostics are pretty kludgy.There is a CCNP version of the software that supposedly addresses these, but I haven't tried it.It may seem fairly expensive, but it is still a lot cheaper than buying an assortment of cisco gear to run through the exercises.

1-0 out of 5 stars Too many mistakes
I read the other reviews on Amazon before purchasing this product.I saw some were good and some were bad.I thought, well, people have different opinions and I may like it.No.There are too many mistakes.Others have commented on VLAN issues with the 2950's.I had the same problem.Any more than 3 vlans and it just wouldn't work.It was very frustrating in that I wasted ALOT of time thinking it my configs at first.Then there is some kind of bug with pings.When you ping from one specific PC to another across your virtual network the entire application shuts down.This will consistently happen so you must remember which PC's you can and can't ping to and from safely and make sure to save everything before every ping.You will put in configurations then 5 minutes later do a "sh run" and they will mysteriously be gone.Or take a network statement out from under OSPF but it just will NOT remove it.Lastly there is the user friendly-ness.I rate this as a zero.It is the most cumbersome application I have ever used.It would have helped had I been able to open the user guide but that did nothing when I clicked on it.I lost many a network because I didn't save the topologies and configs correctly.So I called Boson for help.You have to leave your name and number and they will call back within 48 hours.That was 2 weeks ago.I have not heard from them.

2-0 out of 5 stars Poor Implementation of ACL's
I sent the company some feedback last week and have heard nothing from them. Product does not apply ACL's properly to interfaces and has problems recording matches to outbound ACL's. Also there are problems with alternate vlans on 2950 switches. Numerous bugs running verion 5.07 with latest patch. Was a very disappointing purchase.

Editorial Review

PHP is far more than a cult language or open-source icon. It's a remarkably capable language that's well integrated with lots of technologies--notably mSQL and MySQL database servers--and quite easy to learn. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Solid Look At PHP Programming
'Programming PHP' by Kevin Tatroe is a solid look at this popular open source solution for generating dynamic web pages.Competing against the money solutions ASP and JSP, PHP will give you the same kind of functionality, but at a much lower price!Packed with over 500 pages of PHP goodness, this book will make you a better PHP programmer and teach you how to go all the way from defining the most basic of variables to performing database tasks and all sorts of other important tasks and tricks of the trade.I highly recommend this well-written and well ordered book, perfect for anyone that wants to learn and excel at PHP programming!!
3-0 out of 5 stars Not the best, but decent
It's not the best computer language book I have ever read, by a long shot, but it did give me most of what I needed. I found a number of errors, including places where the example code differs from the text description. This is mostly the editor's fault. Also, there were a number of important details that were left out. This brings me to my main concern: it is not clear who this book was written for. A novice would be overwhelmed, I think, while a more experienced programmer like me may be frustrated with some critical omissions. On the whole, though, it did get the job done.

4-0 out of 5 stars Programming PHP, 2nd Edition (PHP 5)
I'm assuming via the dates of the other reviews, that most of them are referring to Version 1.

This book does not focus on just one aspect of painter, such as painting photographs or raw illustration.It goes through each different use of painter in good detail.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Asset!
This book is a real asset for anyone, experienced or not. Easy tutorials, and many examples of what is possible in Painter IX.

4-0 out of 5 stars CHOCK FULL OF INFO
This is an excellent book for PAINTER IX users. There are lots of inspiring paintings from many artists and generally good explanations of the processes used to create them. It does a great job of giving insight into PAINTER's extensive capabilities.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great web design book
This book is an analisys from a designer's point of view of the cssZenGarden.com project, which is a beautiful project on itself.
4-0 out of 5 stars Css is not only about limits
As the web developer in our company I often hear our graphical designers asking me what IS possible with CSS. Well this book gives you a good idea. It is not really about learning CSS but at least it gives a good idea about all the possibilities. Each time I get stuck in the limits of CSS, I get back to this book.....

3-0 out of 5 stars MUCH More Design than CSS
If you are a programmer that knows nothing about graphic design, this book is pretty nice.It is about 70% focused on how to do graphic design, and about %30 about CSS.Otherwise, if you want to learn CSS this isnt the best book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best book on programming ever!
I am a successful self taught programmer. I have learned C/C++, Java, Perl, and now Ruby all from books and reading other people's code. I have to say this is the best book on programming for a particular language that I have ever read. And I have read quite a few.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great for learning
For learning Ruby, this is a great book.It'll help you learn the basics (although a little coding will help you more than reading will), and then, it'll introduce you to some of the more advanced topics.A great introduction.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must For Ruby and Rails Developers
This book is a must for both Ruby and Ruby on Rails developers. It is extremely well written and contains much more than a normal programming book. Most importantly it assumes that you're above average intellegence and doesn't pull punches when it comes to complex ideas.

4-0 out of 5 stars useful introduction to SAS
[A review of the 3rd Edition.]
4-0 out of 5 stars Review of The Little SAS Book
The book gives good down to earth instructions on using SAS. It does not get bogged down with the technical aspects of SAS or even programming in general. A book on driving, for example, may tell you how an internal combustion engine works when all you want to know is how to start the thing. So it is with this book. It gets you started and it gets you moving quickly so that within an hour or so you can do some pretty fancy stuff. But it also explains a lot, such as what a SAS file really is. The only drawback I have is a lack of relevant examples. There are many good examples, don't get me wrong, but there are too many times when the explanation is not followed by an example and it always seems to be the case that that is what I needed to see. Also, many examples are shown in a vacuum. For instance, there are many good examples embedded with the code around it, but then there are the examples that show you how to write the instruction for something, but it is not shown in context, it is simply a line on a page. Perhaps there just isn't room for it all, but it would always be helpful to see where all of this falls relative to the procedure or step you are in.Never-the-less, I love this book, it's great. I have put away all of my other SAS volumes and keep only this book in my desk, it's really all I need.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very easy to use
This book is a very simple and readable introduction to SAS.It is also a good reference for anyone who is learning SAS on the fly. ... Read more
