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.

5-0 out of 5 stars One point makes this book a must have
Most commands explained have three lines:

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for Exchange 2003
I like this book because it is easy to read and it is clear. Of course, you will enjoy better this book with prior exchange experience or training. Microsoft has done a great job on their Exchange 2003 class. Combine the two and you will get a good start on Exchange installation, maintenance, and architecture.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best exchange book I ever bought.Possibly best computer book.I can't say enough.
This book basically has every answer to every question you've had about exchange.It also has tons of scripts with detailed explanations on the cd, as well as .vsd templates for troubleshooting, upgrade senario docs, and tons of other useful material.I've been consulting for 5+ years, mcsex2, etc.As far as windows, or exchange books from ANY publisher, its the best i've ever read, or even heard about.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Only MS Exchange 2003 Book you need
This book is packed with everything you need to know about Exchange 2003 to attain a very advanced understanding of the product.It includes information on designing the environment, managing, opimizing and troubleshooting (including disaster recovery planning and methods).It has all of the material you need to know to pass exams 070-284 and 285 for MCSA/E: Messaging credential, so you don't need to buy any other books!The CD ROM has the ebook format plus tools and resources that you can use on the job.I have around 60 MS Press books in my library, and this is easilly one of the very best written as well as more useful. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, an excellent book!
This is by far the best book I have ever bought on Dreamweaver. I am a self-learner, and I have about ten books at all levels on Dreamweaver, starting from "dummies" to "beyond". In this book, the author goes through the laborious tasks of explaining the basic concepts first, and then follows these up with one or more step-by-step tutorial. He also provides a host of appropriate tips and "notes" such as "Power Users' Clinic", "Up to Speed", etc. that are very useful to a self-learner like myself. The videos are simply outstanding.I wish that there were more videos. I assume that the author will continue writing such books. How about a Flash 8 book, David?

I haven't gotten very far into the book, but I can already tell that this manual is very comprehensive.It is simple to use and explains everything thoroughly.I noticed that even though I did free shipping, the book arrived well before the approximate arrival date it gave me, which was nice.I would reccomend this book for anyone. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Book, Big Inprovement from the 1 edition
Very Good Book. If you didn't know already the CCNA exam is no Joke. You really have to know the concepts and you really need a good book to prepare for it. Cisco is not giving the CCNA Certificate away anymore. They really want you to learn and earn it. I purchase this because I felt the sybex CCNA didn't cover the exam in full detail (Especially the NAT section). This Book is Well Written. The Price wasn't that bad either since it came with 2 Books (Intro&ICND) and a 30min Video CD. You won't be disappointed. A+ ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars ASP.NET Unleashed
You will learn more about ASP.NET in the first few chapters of this book than what other authors take a whole book to explain!You should also be familiar with programming prior to reading this book.This book will be hard for a beginner to follow.Some VB.NET programming is a prerequisite.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
This book teaches concepts in a very effective manner: making exercises in every one of them. The "how-to" approach, for me, is a very effective method to learn.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have Asp.net 2.0 Book For Everyone
I read through "Beginning Asp.net 2.0" and "Professional Asp.net 2.0" (both good books), so I was hesitating if I needed another Asp.net 2.0 book. Boy am I glad I bought this book too. This is excellent well-rounded book that has very specific and valuable information. I've already read through 1/2 of this book just as an overview and I've already learned new things. I also found this book to be an excellent reference to answer my random questions. If you are an Asp.net 2.0 programmer I highly recommend you getting this book. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars NO DISK FOR CLASS
THIS TEXT BOOK DOES NOT COME WITH THE REQUIRED DISK FOR COMPLETING PROJECTS REQUIRED FOR THE COLLEGE CLASSROOM.

2-0 out of 5 stars Confusing, and at times inaccurate
I used this book for an online class, books and test are bundled together and each time I took the test I had to challenge at lest one question, because it was simply wrong or inaccurate. Test quiz/test questions are non constructive for the most part.Many examples use non-standard fonts that hard to find, making assignments unnecessarily difficult to complete, in some excercises after following all instuctions the correct result would not match the examples given again creating diffulty not needed. This books suited for online classes because it often gives instructions which are completely irrelevant in such environment. The books gives a good amount of tips and tricks about MS Office, books needs revising and grouping of lessons.

Good book, walks you right through each step of the way. Examples are good. Slight problem with the Mac OS X instructions, but workable. A good understanding of your computer system and operating system is suggested to help with some of the exercises.

4-0 out of 5 stars Effective, but needs a little tweaking....
Dreamweaver is a deceptively simple-appearing program, but is incredibly powerful and complex "under the hood". Thus, future users will need exceptionally well-prepared materials to learn it well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for undestanding SOA based Web services
This book is very compelling for anyone who want get introduced to the SOA strategies. I found it well structured, and extremely helpful in understanding the XML based standards related to SOA and its implementation approaches. The author did a very good job on XML Web Services scenarios but failed to demonstrate real code examples....that is my only biggest gripe. Otherwise it is a must-have book for anyone who involved with building an SOA solution. Interestingly, this book is much better than the author's previous blue book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Valuable Resource
I was impressed with how much "inside information" this book reveals about how all of the xml and ws* technologies really work. It openly reveals problems and then provides strategies for dealing with these problems.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book on SOA so far for Architects!

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.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a bad book - Good fundamentals less on development focus
This book is all about Web services platform architecture and standards. It cooks well on most of the alphabet soup of web services standards. This book would guide you instead of browsing over the internet for what is what. The book falls short on guidelines for implementing them. The book also a bit old in its evolving specifications and endorsed standards coverage particularly less about WS-I and WS-Security* standards. That is disappointing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Explains all you need to know about the Web Services Platform
What do you get when you put a number of Web Services gurus from IBM in a room for a while?You'll get the "Web Services Platform Architecture" book.In short, all the authors that assisted in writing this book are Web services experts from IBM who have either wrote the specs or assisted in writing the Web services specs in question.The nice thing about the book is that is it an easy read.It is not a dry, boring, "reading-these-specs is-putting-my-to-sleep," book.As you know, there are a number of specs that cover Web services, so the authors have a taken a short-and-sweet approach to each protocol.Each protocol is covered in detail, but the detail surrounds why you would want to care about this protocol, and not what paragraph 4, subparagraph 8 of chapter 2 of WS-Security says about naming conventions, for example.Each chapter ties the business needs to the technical aspects of the protocol, and talks about how the protocol can be used to solve a given business problem.

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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Recommended
This book will keep your eyes focused on the goal of getting your Network+ certification!Mike Myers writes in a way everyone can understand, and has many examples and pictures.The book does look big, and it is.Just remember that all the pictures take up about half the book (good thing to, some of it would be hard to understand if they weren't in there!).Go and get this book!

4-0 out of 5 stars I was very happy with this book
I used this book as my main study guide for the Network+ exam, along with his Network+ Passport.Mike says that you will pass the exam, not that you will score a 900 on it, and I think this is probably accurate.I studied this book, taking notes and reviewing as well as using the practice exams.I also bought my test voucher from Mike's company which gave me additional practice exams.I passed with a decent score (763)and most of the material I saw on the test was in the All In One book.
4-0 out of 5 stars it's a good place to start, but not all-inclusive
i have my A+ cert but i did not have any experience with networking prior to reading this book. i passed with a 715, so for newbies like me, it can be done.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as they want you to think
For general information it's ok. The information is ill-organized and when working through the problems at the back of each chapter, many of the answers are not actually provided in the book -- you are expected to research further in referened material in the chapter. When an instructor has to give the answers to problems that are in the back of the chapter because the chapter does not actually have enough information to solve the problem, there is a problem with the book.
2-0 out of 5 stars Overly wordy
Oh my gosh this book is sooooo wordy. It's 800 pages long, yet it probably could be condensed to less than 600, all without the loss of clarity. The authors explain everything to an excruciating degree, and often times things are repeated over and over again. For example, on page 194, a sentence reads:
5-0 out of 5 stars The best overview of networking principles
I found this book the best reference yet that I have come across to give a person a great deal of knowledge in a rapid and easy to understand format. It deals with internet protocols and other networking principles-- it is a great book to start with.

5-0 out of 5 stars E-commerce & business
Please,,,,,,display that book's pages no 23,& 84 .book name:management information system(5th edition).4-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive but pricey
The text covers the topic with ample examples and diagrams, plus cases short and long.The level of detail is appropriate for a graduate level course.The book is too ...The authors could eliminate the chapter on the office environment. They should condense the chapters on questionnaires and system presentation.Another solution: put the lengthy end-of-chapter case material on a CD; it is doubtful that all of it is used in any course.Perhaps the authors have too much clout to be edited.

4-0 out of 5 stars Everything you ever wanted to know, and then some...
The Kendalls have definitely created a comprehensive book on systems analysis. Virtually every aspect is covered here, and in plenty of detail. There are plenty of review questions and problems, hypothetical consulting situations, an ongoing case-study, and even an associated web-based case study.Read more

Editorial Review

It's important for anyone who creates Web sites--even those who rely on powerful editors like Dreamweaver or GoLive--to know HTML. The World Wide Web Consortium rewrote HTML as a subset of XML (dubbing it "XHTML 1.0") and the allowable code will eventually be stricter. Tags that are being phased out are labeled "deprecated"--current browsers can still handle them, but if you want your site to keep up with future browsers, not to mention conform to accessibility requirements, you will want to get on top of XHTML.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Far and away the best book for everyone!
This is simply the best HTML and CSS book.It has basically everything you need to know, with easy-to-find, easy-to-understand, and concise descriptions.It it not "web for dummies," rather, it is a very sophisticated and realistic approach to HTML and CSS, without a lot of hype or self-promotion.If you want to hear people wax poetical about the "EM" unit, you can get the book by Lie & Bos, but I think Castro's book is far more useful.She gives links to many web sites to help with more advanced stuff (Javascript, etc.), which is nice, but the book itself is incredibly comprehensive.And the layout of the book is a model for all instructional texts.A winner!

4-0 out of 5 stars For Reference or for learning
Elizabeth Castro has been writing Visual Quickstart Guides to HTML and web design in an easy to understand manner. Now she provides resources for those who would be interested in web design that will create sites that are usable for years to come. Since I first picked up the fourth edition of this book, I have been hooked on the series, because its explanations are written on a level for the average person. The organization allows the reader to move at their own pace and easily refer back to topics that they want to refresh.
5-0 out of 5 stars Coding
This book was a real help to me when I first became addicted to coding. The pictures are quite helpful, or at least more helpful than long explanations, and Elizabeth Castro is a fabulous writer. I learned so much that I went on to learn many other programming and coding languages with ease. You don't need to have any experience to use this book, it explains everything. Visual QuickStart Guide's are the best type in the market, cheap and easy to understand. So if you are itching to learn another computer language, I suggest checking them out! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Included lab is !@#$!$#@! Shame on Boson!
The books are good, and the tests are closer to anything on the CCNA test, although I did notice some of the simulations were buggy with incorrect answers, but Boson should be slapped HARD for including the hamstrung Router Sim LE version.The help does not work.The web connect interface does not work. 2/3rds of the labs are disabled and the ones that work have 2/3rds of the IOS commands disabled. This is meant to prod you into buying the "Full upgrade", at a cost of well over $150.That is quite lame.In addition, the internet scut on Boson is that the Full version also is very buggy and not worth even half the cost charged.The Cisco Academy in San Jose is very outraged at Boson for its poor quality.Ask anyone there.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing book
It is a great book which covers all topics in order to pass the CCNA exam. You have the router and switch simulator to improve and apply your skills.

5-0 out of 5 stars A really Solid Quality Book
This book and its companion "T-SQL Querying" are two great books, they are not for beginners and in some part requires a full immersion, they are not an easy reading... but at the end you you will have a really deep understanding of the topics they covers. I've found really useful to read it two times, the second one I've noticed that a lot of sentences takes a new light after you've a whole overview of all the topics. A definitively must have. Both !

5-0 out of 5 stars This is an excellent book
This is an excellent book that should be in the library of every serious database developer.It is by far the most detailed book that I have ever read on T-SQL programming.There are many cookbooks or sql recipes books but IMHO this book is many steps ahead of the rest of the books.It is well written, with realistic examples and extremely precise.The one thing that I really loved in this book was that for every problem it provides many alternative solutions and explains the advantages of one solution over the other.Again congratulations to the authors for their great job.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a book
As someone who has followed Itzik for a while, I expected quite a bit with this book. In every way, shape, manner and form, it delivered.
