Great Book !!


This book turned out to be an oversized paper weight. It over covers the basics, and wastes lots of space talking in detail about long out of date "historical" info. The author spends too much time writing about detailed situations and personal experiences rather then getting to the point. I think he likes to hear himself talk? I passed both parts of the test but it had very little to do with what was in this book. Since the tests require the taker to be prepared for 80 questions out of 1000, the less that has to be read ensures the more important information that will be retained. Many of the topics and details covered on the test aren't even in this book. I don't know what other book to suggest, I just know that this one isn't sufficient to do the job of aiding a newcomer in passing the test. Maybe it's fine for someone with years of experience but not for a beginner.

great for beginner


This book is the first book i get for HTML. It's really good for beginner. It assumes you don't think any single thing on producing a web page and guides you step by step to what you need to know. Another good feature of this book is that it also mentions what else you need to produce a more professional looking web pages. The authors teaches you basic graphic skill in Paint Pro Shop and even some animations in Animation shop. It also has very good chapters on forms, tables, and imagemap. But the StyleSheet chapter is weaker. Overall, at the price, you can get not only HTML, but also Graphic tutorial. This book is really worth to buy. If you are new to web, this is the book for you.

Core Servlets and Javaserver Pages


I am a QA Engineer and was just learning JSP. This book was easy to read and the material was presented in a very organized manner. I use a lot of examples and they actually work (unlike some of the other books that I had purchased). Great Book !

Useful recipes and great ideas


There are a number of Photoshop effects books on the market and they range in quality. This is one of the good ones. In particular because the book covers a variety of Photoshop design tasks from simple photo alterations, through typography work, and into ad layouts and compositing techniques. It's a full spectrum approach that will give you as much information on techniques as it gives you ideas for what you can do with Photoshop. All of the examples a presented step by step with an illustration at each step. The book is full color and the examples are high quality.
