Good for new business modellers


Being relatively new to business modelling in the eCommerce arena, I purchased this book with the aim of guiding me to a consistent diagramatical notation/methodology for functional requirements. Whilst many customers are still more comfortable with the old flow chart and DFD, I was able to at least apply some of the principles behind the notation. I showed someone else in our workshop sessions and they took the details so they could purchase their own copy. I have compared notes with a few others and find that they either have the book or have at least seen it. I would recommend this to someone in the same situation as I was - relatively new to business modelling, yet not naive wrt analysis and design methodologies. For those who are old hands it might still be worth a look.

A classic - but not a good starting book.


Most people don't think of technical computer books as potential "classics", but this is one. I would not recommend this to beginners, but if you already know computer graphics, you should have this book. If you can, take a class where the instructor is using this book to teach. You will not regret it. Since it is, in essence, a teaching book, you will NOT find compelte solutions to graphics problems. The authors leave it up to the reader to implement everything in C, and to complete the algorithms. As a basic example, you will not find a complete integer line drawing algorithm in this book. The reader is only given a formula on how to draw lines from point A to a point B East-North-East of point A. You have to figure out how to do the rest. That is why this book is NOT for the beginner, unless you have an experienced teacher guiding you through it.

Your best choice if your an experienced programmer


If your sick of manual "rehashes" and need real how to information, get this book. It's not for beginners, but is extremely well written. As an experienced programmer (20 years) I found this book to be the most usefull of all the various VB books I have purchased or examined. Every time I browse this book I find something new and usefull, and find it difficult to put down.

Only book you'll need on C#


I spent a lot of time at the bookstore reading through the many C# books now available, and this book is by far the best one.
It teaches you everything you need to know to go from complete beginner to expert in both C# and .NET programming. It also covers how to use the Visual Studio .NET tool.
I liked the no-nonsense and tightly focused style of the text. The two authors really know C# and .NET inside out, and it shows in this book.
