Read this book and become a computer programming artist.

As a `Technical Informatics' student, I had heard of the three (so far) volumes of Knuth. When I found out that new editions of the books were being published, I asked a teacher if it could be of any use to me. He said it was pretty heavy on the math, and if you don't have a feeling for math, the books are pretty tough. Now, I am not very good at mathematics, but when I went to a localbookstore where the new edition of volume 1 laid in stacks on a `just arrived' table, I picked up a copy and started reading somewhere in chapter 2. Suddenly a member of the bookstore's staff tapped me on the shoulder and asked me if I tried to read the whole thing right there. When I asked why, she told me I had been standing there for more than half an hour, completely absorbed by the book. Right there I concluded my teacher was wrong, and that if you've been programming for some time, this book can still teach you some very valuable lessons, even about `trivial' things like lists and stacks. When the other two volumes are published, they'll be right beside my copy of volume 1. A very impressive sight for friends who want to know what these beautifully bound books are about. In short, if you're a programmer, you get a copy of all the volumes of The Art of Computer Programming. I think it's a good step in becoming a computer programming artist.

Not a hope

This is certainly the best CISSP study guide available, but it seems to be much, much more.
The amount of information in this text book is exactly what the security field needs. I am amazed at the depth that this author goes into and can really get the concepts across in an understandable manner. Security can be a complex animal and this book has made me understand things I didn't know that I didn't know!
I will use this book even after the exam I am sure.

Fantastic Book

For Peoplesoft consultants this book is of no use.The back cover says detailed 'step by step guideline ' is of false information. Mostly who buy this book must be a peoplesoft consultants who are involved in the integration project who needs some real time examples of how to do the integration.However this book never talk about a single example.
I can write this book in 5 hours.
Guys don't get cheated .This is the worst book I came across by Mc Graw Hill.
If any body interested to buy this book please let me know.
I had to fill in the ratings as mandatory.Actual rating which I could gives is 0.

You Get What You Pay For

Ms. Berkley book, "Low-Budget Online Marketing" was right on target. The book enthusiastically covered the basics in web design and marketing. I flew through this book in an evening pumped up on her topics such as how to get potential customers to keep returning to your web page, building an e-mail marketing mail list and getting to the top of search engine lists. This book is not yet outdated and is well worth the small investment.
