I can only give it 5 stars? It deserves many more...

I really don't get these reviews, and I honestly suspect theres some foul play involved because there is no way so many people can be so absolutely clueless.

This book couldn't be any more clear, concise and spot on. I just don't think I could say it any better than that. When starting Inside SolidWorks 2003, I had very little background in any CAD system. I had learned a little bit from SolidWorks' built-in tutorials, but they cover the very basics, and I kept getting stuck.

I decided it was time to look for a book. Inside SolidWorks 2003 was the first book I looked at on Amazon.com, but seeing the 2 1/2 stars, I felt uncomfortable spending $50 on it. So I went looking some more but didn't find any other books that really looked any better.

So I came back to Inside SolidWorks 2003 and read the reviews...and realized they didn't exactly add up. None of the reviews really had any reliable content, they were all written with the same 'attitude' (though not necessarily the same person), and the positive reviews completely contradicted what they were saying. They just didn't add up.

I figured, what the heck, I'll give it a shot. Many of the negetive reviews didn't appear legitimate to me... And boy do I know I was right.

Being extremely ready to jump right in, I had the book shipped Next Day Air and got it the next morning, took it home, and got reading. Even though I'd figured out a lot of stuff from just messing around with the software, the first 150 pages covered everything in good detail (without getting TOO detailed and complicating things), and while I had figured some of the initial content out already, I learned that I had missed numerous very helpful things...things that the book quickly taught me.

This is the best software book I've ever read, by far. I can't even begin to express how happy I am with it. I believe it would even be appropriate for people who don't have much computer experience at all, since the author covers some basic Windows GUI techniques that are built into SolidWorks.

Seriously, if you're looking for a book to get you up to speed on SolidWorks, this is probably the best book you could buy. I can't even begin to share all of the things I have learned in the past couple weeks.

Go read the negetive reviews for yourself, and see if they strike you as if something is amiss. I'm glad I came back and gave Inside SolidWorks 2003 a second chance.

Very well writen book

This book reads like a novel, but keeps a very technical perspective. I would recomend this book for anyone intrested in cryptology, followed by applied cryptography.
Awsome book
