Greatest C Book in the World

For an introduction to ANSI C, this is the best, direct from the horses mouth. It explains everything from the ground up. If you want to study C, read this FIRST.

Don't understand the five stars!!!

Well, this is a very good application creation. If you download the code and simply use it. You will have just some minor adjustments to make in web.config file and IIS manager. But, if you want to do it yourself, read every chapter and write down the code. Fiouuuuuuuu!!! Good luck. I tried it and with many help from the wrox forum I just finished it. So many errors in this book. It's why I canno't give this book 4 or 5 stars. The stuff in it is very professional and working with it is very pleasant but when I buy a book it's for reading and trying it, not for downloading code and running this one.
So keep in mind if you buy this pro book, very good programming concept but poor writing.

An AD Administrator's Must Have

So often with "cut and paste" solution titles, the reader is given a book that assumes no experience on behalf of the user, and wastes a great deal of print on telling you how to open notepad or the command prompt and very little time answering many of the "but wait..." questions that arise from implementing their solution without knowing what you're doing. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this isn't the case with this book.
Don't pick this up unless you are familiar with the environment you are using; the author makes the assumption that you understand Windows and the Active Directory already. Formatted exactly as needed, this reference book (find what you need, rather than a cover to cover read) provides solutions which 95% of the time are native to the "out of the box" environment without need for additional downloads or installs. When you do need a download, its a Microsoft provided add-on and not a third party shareware. The solutions are usually provided as a GUI walk-thru, command line overview and a VBScript example, making this title much more useful than others as it does not alienate administrators of various levels.
With over 320 solutions in 17 different areas, this is recommended Active Directory reference addition for applicable administrators.

Good to get you going

This book was a joy to read and it provided very good examples and reasoning for doing certain tasks and tracking certain events. During the time my company was going through some reatructuring I deciced to use this book as a guide and see how things go. It went well. Many of the planning and tracking tips were very useful. The title suites it. It's a manual for survival. Not the definative book to get you through your PMP exam, but it will make things more organized for your day to day activities.
