Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5
I gave it two stars because:

When i saw this book online.. i was so excited by looking at the cover because i wanted to be a windows C++ programmer so bad.. I bought the book which was basicly all the money i had thinking i would learn alot from it..... WHen i got the book in the mail.. i opened it up and i read the first 4 chapters and it was great!! The C++ portion of it was just the best there is.. Then i got to the GUI protion of it.. And i found out it was MFC. but all along i was looking for win32 api book beacuse i had had a back ground in that.. and i wanted to learn all i coujld about it....I was raged.......If u are llooking for a MFC book then this book is for u... BUt if u are new at programming and u dont know what u want yet.. U just know u want a book that u can learn windows programming from... i dont sugest MFC to be the first one u do.. U should do frist console C++ (Buy a book on reguler C++) and then move on to Win32 Api which u can do exactly the same stuff as u can in MFC.. and if u want to.. u can move on to MFC... (In my option.. MFC is slopy code and it is a rip off of C++ and VB..that is just my optioin tho..) I just weanted to let u guys know aobut this book before u spend all your money on a book u dont even need.. Have a good day..

My recommendations

Everybody who works with Windows XP knows that REGISTRY is not only a heart of that OS but, I would say, sick heart, so without the book "Microsoft Windows XP Registry Guide" written by Jerry, Jr. Honeycutt and Jerry Honeycutt you can do nothing to fix numerous problems, which, no doubts, you are going to meet with purchasing Windows XP. Comprehensible language and professional approach makes it an excellent guide into so sensitive area of Windows XP.I would recommend to Microsoft to sell OS Windows XP together with this book, so customer could fix the problems, which everyone starts getting while working on WinXP.It is very helpful book, indeed.

Worst Book Yet

I had to buy this book as part of a Network Management class and have found it to be utterly useless during and afterwards. It is definatly the worse book that I have ever had to buy. First, it was mighty expensive for the quality of the writing/material. Second, the material within the book could have covered in a much better way. It was very difficult to understand because it travelled much to far into SNMP/RMON. I found it almost useless as a reference, because it did not cover anything in a way that was pertinant to actually using SNMP/RMON on a network. It lacked real world examples and uses. Perhaps this book would be great for someone who develops apps based on SNMP, but for someone who wants to learn about using it, its a massive waste of time.
