Title: Microsoft(r) SQL Server(tm) 2000 Analysis Services Step by Step
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: OLAP Train, Reed Jacobson
Rating: 2/5
Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5
Not what it needs to be

The book covers Analysis Services quite well if you are willing to go through the steps that they have for each section. As the name implies it steps you through examples and is NOT a reference guide by any means. It is also not a step by step guide that you can just read. You must be working through the examples while you read or you will get lost pretty fast because many examples build on previous ones. Their coverage of MDX is fairly weak unless you need exactly what they query on. Other than that they cover the topics pretty well.

Very good book

This book is nice, and contains all standard methods of numerical amalysis and linear algebra.
There is book called "Numerical Recipes in C" that is basicly the same book, and it could be find at cornell university web pages for free
So, DON'T BUY THE BOOK - you can find practically the same book for free at the web!

The best book for introducing in OOAD and Design Patterns

If you want to introduce to the world of OOAD and Desing Patterns this is the best book for you ! Don't doubt to buy this book. It has been my inspiration to teach OOAD in my Technology Institute in Culiacán, Sinaloa México. Really UML and OOAD was another thing since i knew the Craig's Book !

I passed the test! If I can, you can ...

This was the best reference I have found to aid in getting certification! I am not easy to self teach, (where the computer is concerned) and yet that is exactly what I was able to do with the assistance of this book.
I was very weary in class, up against students half my age, (I am 40)and yet I passed this exam the first time with a 94%! This is easy to read, easy to understand and easy to put into practice.
There are books available for ALOT more money and not quite as good. A great value.
