5-0 out of 5 stars Great reference book
"Programming Excel with VBA & .NET" is certainly a very 'weighty' tome. At around 1100 pages you certainly get a lot of paper for your money!However, do you get value for your money? I have yet to read a book on this topic which is more comprehensive in its coverage in terms of the description of the Object Model and the properties and methods, in many cases complete with useful examples. So in that regard it is an excellent reference. The benefit of the author being part of the Microsoft OLE Automation team when VB was added to Excel is very clear. The book also covers VBA itself in good depth. However, I feel that much of this could have been usefully relegated to a reference Appendix. If you are buying this book to learn VBA as such then there are many other excellent choices. The value in this book is in the application of VBA to Excel. You should not consider this book unless you are already very comfortable with VBA. If you are only just learning VBA but try to go on to read the rest of the book, you might find it hard going.
5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and Authoritative
When you attempt to get into a new area of coding, it is best to have an authoritative reference. Confidence in your source really helps in getting through the inevitable rough spots. "Excel with VBA & .NET" seems to fill the bill. It certainly does not hurt to know that the author was on the Microsoft OLE Automation team when VB was added to Excel.

5-0 out of 5 stars Must Read for .Net Security
I read the online book and then went out and purchased it here on Amazon.This is a awesome book.If you are new to security or your company is finally getting serious about security and you work in a .Net environment then this book is a must start resource.I cannot recall how many times I have recommended this book.I hope the author makes updates for .Net 2.0 as well as continues to extend the book online -- simply a great read!

5-0 out of 5 stars the .NET developer's first line of defense

5-0 out of 5 stars A good security cookbook
This book reminds me of a cookbook type of security book. There are 75 concise explanations of security topics and examples of how to do specific security coding. There are a lot of topics that are not .NET specific, but generally Windows security technology. I have experience with Windows security coding and have read Keith's previous book, "Programming Windows Security" so I have not read this book cover-to-cover, but use it when I need to know something specific. I have found this book very useful in those types of situations and the information in this book has saved me countless hours I would have spent trying to figure out this stuff on my own. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Wasn't helpful for me - nothing about design and weak coverage of components.
I'm a Java programmer who finished reading O'Reilly's "Programming C#" (very good book), and wanted to get started in Windows Forms programming. Chapters 1 and 2 were decent and Appendix B was an excellent introduction to Delegates and Events.
5-0 out of 5 stars The second edition is out the covers Windows forms V2, you may want to buy it instead.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very readable coverage of very relevant material
I got this book after having already done quite a bit of WinForms programming and found it a compelling read.I'd have read after a platform/language primer but before doing any actual WinForms work, had I had it in my possession at that time.

4-0 out of 5 stars All the Basics You Need.
This book covered 90% of my Windows 2000 Profesional questions and problems at work when I upgraded our computers to this operating system. In fact one year latter it still sits by my side at work and provides the answers to 2 to 3 questions a month. There is a lot of stuff in here, and you know what: You won't use or probably know 75% of it - but the great part about this book is that it's all in one place in case you do forget or need to know. On a side note: The Resource Kit Tools that come with are something I can't live with out and makes this book worth it just for that.

2-0 out of 5 stars Fluffy And Shallow
While this book contains 1700+ pages of information, most of it is too shallow, ill organized and inadequate to be of benefit to anyone configuring and troubleshooting Windows 2000 Professional. Instead of spending your hard earned money on this overpriced book, consult Windows 2000 online Help section as well as Microsoft's website, where many of the tools on the CD that accompanies this book are available.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bravo!
Microsoft - to some a four letter word, to others a savior of the computer software industry.Either way, if you need to work with Microsoft's OS's then this is a must have.Besides the great resource kit utilities we have all come to know and love, the book is a must have for the level 2 support people in any organization. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome for those moving from ASP 1.1 to ASP 2.0
This is the perfect book for those who know ASP 1.x and need a find a way to solve a problem QUICKLY in ASP 2.0.It covers the vast majority of new features in ASP 2.0 as well as new ways acomplish tasks that were more difficult in ASP 1.0.A must have in for ASP 2.0 Programmers!

5-0 out of 5 stars COOKING WITH ASP.NET 2.0!!
Are you journeyman programmer who knows the basics of ASP.NET? If you are, then this book is for you! Authors Geoffrey T Leblond and Michael A Kittel, have done an outstanding job of writing a second edition of a book that is a collection of ASP.NET 2.0 recipes that aims to help you quickly and efficiently solve many of the day-to-day problems you face when developing web applications with the .NET platform.
2-0 out of 5 stars ASP.NET 1.1 with a bit of 2.0 patched on
Much of the content was clearly taken from earlier 1.x versions of the book without being re-written to take advantage of 2.0.Yes, the samples may compile and work, but they are often not 2.0 best practices.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Condition, Timely Service
My book was in new condition, and I received my book, hassle free, in my postal box!!! It also arrived when I expected it to!

2-0 out of 5 stars Good if you want to reinvent the wheel!
This book is good if you want to start policy-writing project or want to do PhD in policy writing. In today fast moving world, you want best practices for the most commonly used polices, which you could review and quickly deploy. 4-0 out of 5 stars Not thorough or rigorous, but a good set of secpol topics
Security policies are not security, and will not provide any protection.However, as the well-known formulation has it:security is a process.An organization does not "have" security, rather they participate in the process of security.Barnum explains that security policies are a component of the planning aspect of the security process, and as such can provide three advantages.The first is to insure security interoperability across an organization.The second advantage is the visibility given to the policy by management's participation in it, which provides a greater impetus for implementation.The third is to mitigate liability, presumably by the legal value of the policy, and the advantages to security that a policy-driven approach proves.Another reason mentioned is that for some organizations, policy documentation is needed for iso900x compliance.Unstated is the assumption that a security policy might result in greater security.After all, even with all the other purported advantages, a security policy is presumptively about making security better.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Practical and Potent
I've looked into a few Hardening Windows type of books and I was not satisfied.I found Unix/Linux equivalents to be very practical and valuable, and most to the Windows books to be just general guides of common obvious solutions mentioned in core MSCE training. Where is the real tangible stuff?
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on securing Windows
Does a week ever go by without a major Windows vulnerability coming to light? It is evident that, prior to Windows XP Service Pack 2, the operating system was geared to file and printer sharing, not security. Among security professionals, the common view is that the best way to secure Windows is to use a more secure operating system such as Linux.
4-0 out of 5 stars A good overview of Windows Security
I was very pleased with this book.One of the problems I've had with most books on network security is that they go on and on about theory and then leave it to you to turn their high level discussion into actual practice.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not much of an internals book
I think the title Windows Internals was a bit of a misnomer, but i guess i should have known better.I expected a book more like Understanding the Linux Kernel which gives rich details about the kernel code, algorithms, and data structures.I resisted giving one star because the book does tell you a little about feautures of the new Windows Operating Systems, (i.e. what type of filesystem it uses) but I'm guessing I could of found this info out for free elsewhere.If you want to learn about the algorithms behind memory management, caching, swapping, journaling, etc and how an operating system really works at a meaningful detailed level look elsewhere.Again it's not completely useless since it will make you aware of some the characteristics of the Windows Operating Systems if you're developing on that platform, but its really not much of an internals book from my perspective.Maybe there really isn't any better internals book for windows out there, because MS doesn't really want to share this info - i'm not sure.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference speaking to the "internals" of Microsoft's OS's
I'm keeping this short and to the point.The content is rich and detailed.It truly speaks to how the Microsoft operating system functions on different levels.The book analyzes those different levels and goes into detail on how to use specific tools to "view what's happening".
5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding In-depth Analysis of Windows
I highly recommend this book to anyone who needs a very technical analysis of Windows-XP/2K/S2003.Like I would imagine with most readers, I don't need to know everything about Windows but I do need to know everything possible about specific issues.For me, it's primarily the file system (NTFS).This is the best study that I have found.I have read Russinovich's work for years - and used his technical software - and have the utmost respect for him as an engineer, software developer, and a writer (However, he's probably very boring at parties!). For anyone interested in the intricacies of NTFS and other filing systems, I also recommend Brian Carrier's outstanding "File System Forensics Analysis". ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Instruction Manual
I was looking for a book that I could use to provide non-technical students with basic skills. This book was just what I was looking for and helped me plan out my class. I like the way the book is divided into sections that gradually build. Some information is repeated but this helps students to understand the material. Overall a great book if you want to learn computer basics.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for the reason it was written
I have been teaching people of all ages how to use (including all versions of Windows and Office) and build computers for over 6 years now.I just decided to get a Bachelor's Degree in Information Technology and was told that I needed to pass the IC3 exams as an introductory course.Thinking that I could probably pass the exams in my sleep, I ordered this book to look over the material anyway just to make sure that I wasn't being overconfident.I learned a couple of obscure things that I hadn't known before and I'm only 1/2 way through the book.It was worth it to me (bought it used).
1-0 out of 5 stars WARNING: This book SUCKS!Do NOT take this course!!!
???Terrible.Absolutely terrible.DO NOT BUY!In this day and age, any person between the ages of 13 and 60 will be quite familiar with all of the concepts discussed in this book.Few people need to be taught how to delete a file or create a word document.I also found the class that I bought this book for to be incredibly boring.It was almost torture because everyone in the class knew all of the concepts we were being taught, but we all had to take the class anyway because there was no way to place out of the course.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for Intermediate to Very Advance Analysis
I borrowed this book looking to perform one specific task, which I found at the end of a chapter. I spent an hour working through the entire chapter instead and easily learned, understood, and REMEMBERED how to perform a variety of tasks dealing with macros. The problems are simple, GOAL oriented with excellent recap sessions for memorization. Tasks designed as springboards for more advanced projects.
4-0 out of 5 stars many detailed tasks
The authors have gone to some length to comprehensively explain and test many aspects of Excel. It's probably accurate to say that the testing is as important as the teaching. The book is geared explicitly to letting you do numerous specific tasks (or problems). Vital in internalising the information in the lessons.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent ASP reference book
This is an excellent companion book to 'Professional Active Server Pages'. Like most O'Reilly Nutshell texts, this book is designed more as a reference aid, rather than a learning text. If you buy both the Professional ASP tome, and this reference guide, you've bought everything you need for ASP.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!
As a student in college, I want to learn some advanced web programming language. I found this book is very helpful for beginner. I also get a discount from couponsky.com when buying this book. This book is not only useful for beginner's studying, you also can take it as reference after you finish the studying. I recommend this book to the beginners in ASP.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good reference and code samples, but...
Somewhat in a rush and while trying to learn ASP I purchased this book.I thought it was aweful and it collected dust for nearly 6 months while I searched elsehwere to boot myself up on ASP.However, now that I'm fairly proficient at ASP, this book has been helpful as a reference.No so much for the actual reference value but becasue the sample code helps put things in perspective. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Are you a beginner to intermediate system administrator? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Jonathan Hassell, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that shows you how Windows Server 2003 and its follow-up release, R2, works and the different ways to administer machines running that operating system.
4-0 out of 5 stars Not for Beginners
I have given this book a 4 star rating as a geek friend who helped me set up my business server read it and said it was pretty good. I am an experienced applications programmer with substantial knowledge of networks and the practicalities of server services. I incorrectly thought this book would almost be like a step-by-step for setting up your own server. The description is correct, each chapter does explain in brief detail what that feature is and then goes into detail of how to set it up. HOWEVER at no point does it explain why you would need the feature or what the acronyms used mean or what is achieved after you add that feature. Personally if you already know about servers, understand the terminology and acronyms and have set up many servers before then my geek friend advises this is a great book. If you are a geek but know little about server terminology and are looking for a step by step book on how to set up a server starting with Server 2003 forget it. If you are not a geek you will be unable to read this book at all, it lost me after only a few paragraphs on every chapter. I gave this book away to my friend.

5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely Clear, Concise, Yet Comprehensive
The new 2nd edition of this book has been completely updated for Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1 and release R2, and information on administration using command-line utilities has been added to each chapter.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good stuff
If you are working with Windows Server 2003 security, this is pretty good stuff. For one thing, it gives you the background on a lot of the security features that Microsoft has placed in Group Policy as well as their security recommendations in White Papers. By the way, I suggest you download the Threats and Countermeasures guide from the Microsoft web site, if you don't already have it. That would go very well with this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for Windows Server 2003 Admins
Hacking Exposed- Windows Server 2003 is the latest addition to the Hacking Exposed series of books. Joel Scambray and Stuart McClure have teamed up to create another excellent source of information to help you understand the weaknesses in your Windows Server 2003 system and what you can do to defend against them.
4-0 out of 5 stars Not the ultimate Windows 2003 security book, but still solid
"Hacking Exposed: Windows 2000" (HE:W2K) was published in August 2001, eight months after the W2K OS was released to manufacturing (RM) in December 1999."Hacking Exposed: Windows 2003" (HE:W03) was published in October 2003, seven months after the Windows 2003 OS was RTM.Does the shorter gap between OS availability and book publication hurt the successor to the original hit Windows security book?It's possible, but I don't see many contenders for the title of best Windows assessment guide.Because this book delivers the technical goods in a proven format, I give HE:W03 four stars.Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars A little light
This is a very light treatment of Server 2003 clustering.It is poorly organized (there's not even an entry in the index for "Quorum"!), and spends too much time on NT and Win2K (though the title says 2003).It is heavier on the design/planning side and very, very light on monitoring, management, and trouble-shooting.It often gives advice without providing reasons.There are several key points delivered in a grammar so poor as to make me wonder what he is trying to say.All-in-all, I learned nothing that wasn't obvious in Microsoft's own documentation.

1-0 out of 5 stars The worst book I have ever read about Windows clustering
This is nothing more than a rehash of clustering in windows2000. A waste of time

1-0 out of 5 stars a 400 page introduction
I guess I'm in the minority here, but I found this book to be completely useless.I was tasked to build a new windows 2003 file and print cluster, so I bought this book to read up on how it was done.All I got out of it (and yes I read it all the way, except for the load balancing parts) was that the author knew alot about technologies, and that there were alot of things to check on when setting up the cluster.Thing is, the book never got detailed on how to do anything.After reading through it all, I then spent ten minutes at the microsoft site for clustering, and learned more there.They've got the kind of specifics I needed in less than a dozen short documents than this book had in 400 pages.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE Reference Book for DOS
This book is simply the best reference source for MS-DOS.Easy to read and providing in-depth coverage of all DOS commands, this book covers version 6.22 as well as letting you know when a command first appeared andin what version of DOS.4-0 out of 5 stars Fundamental but a little OLD!
I was looking for a fundamental DOS book covering basic and network commands, scripts, and a reference. What I got was a book written before Windows 95 with no updated network Commands and a reference not formattedlike a dictionary but more like a written chapter. It is a great first bookfor DOS but I wish I noticed the publish date.

5-0 out of 5 stars Started my professional computer career with this book.
Best, easiest to understand and fun to read.This book more than any other laid the foundation for my understanding of computer science.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Definitive guide to Windows debugging
I have bought all of John's books. He is the guy Microsoft calls when they can't solve a problem. On top of that he has a great writing style, is easy to understand, and has some great war stories. His books are always the top of my recommended reading list.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very useful discussion of Windows debugging practices
This book brings a vast amount of Windows-specific debugging information together in one place and has been very helpful to me. Some of this info could be found elsewhere, but only by sorting through dozens of documentation pages and magazine articles, some many years old, and additionally the author adds value by giving very explicit instructions (even providing source code) on how to do things that are often only hinted at in the Microsoft documentation.
5-0 out of 5 stars Good sequel, hope to see the next one too
I'm writing this to thank that guy who posted the table of contents in an effort to show how this book is the same as John Robbins' prior - since that is what convinced me to buy it :-)

4-0 out of 5 stars Average User
After a few minutes of reading and in front of the PC, I was able to understand many of the new features in XP Pro. This book should have been included with the software. I considered myself as a fairly competent PC user, but the book unlocked all the items that you cannot find using the "Help" function in XP Pro. At least it seems that way to me! I highly recommend this purchase for ALL PC users.

5-0 out of 5 stars He's Right, It Should Have Been In the Box
The title is right! This is the book that should have been included in the basic box with XP Pro. It is set at just the right level for the average user trying to come up to speed on a new operating system. While the basic user interface is more or less the same as the previous windows operating systems, the underlying code structure is based on NT rather than the older DOS/Windows.
4-0 out of 5 stars connecting to the Internet
The very latest from David Pogue's eponymous publishing house [and O'Reilly]. The book goes into myriad useful tips on best using Microsoft's XP Professional. A very stable operating system, unlikesome earlier efforts by Microsoft. Replete with attractive consumer level utilities. The book does go into system type aids, like showing the full power of the start menu, taskbar and control panel. All to the good. But somewhat prosaic.
