The examples and excercises are appropriate and relevant to the material covered in the book. This is a good place to start for anyone interested in learning more about Oracle.

Great Book, Great website

PMP Certification For Dummies provided me a much more logical view of project management flow then PMI process view. It made the relationship of process I-Tools-O much more understandable and easy to memorize.
I must say that the PMP Cert For Dummies pattern recognition technique is very helpful. And you can master it simply. With regards to other titles, all of them provide a different perspective and the holistic view can be obtained only by reading more than one title. You cannot pass by reading any one book alone.

Excellent book

I bought this book along with SCWCD Book by Hanumant Deshmukh for my SCWCD Certification, while I found the latter more useful from the perspective of the exam.. I retained this one and sold the other. This book is invaluable for any serious Web Developer..
Worth it!

Good but not well covered.

This book is so much prettier than all the weg books. The art is great, the photo's cool. Everything on that side of things looks really professional. It is great to see Wizards doing the game as it looks like they are going to do a really good job of it.
My only complaint is that there isn't enough in the book to play. Forget playing in the rebellion or new republic era. They are not covered at all in any detail.
Episode 1 is the only era covered in any detail. Which is a big disappointment. I will be running games in that era but there isn't stats on the standard stormtrooper in the book.
There is a very high level of favortism to Phantom menace in the game. In time I hope it will balance out so we can play in all 3 eras.
Some of the stats are very weird for movie character stats. They have Maul stronger than Vader. Not a hope in hell of that being the case. Episode 1 is the in thing and the game reflects that.
But overall this is a good book and the game looks like it will grow in some interesting directions. if they continue to do things at this standard then it should do well.
