Title: The Portable PMP® Prep: Conversations on Passing the PMP® Exam
Publisher: ESI International
Authors: Carl L. Pritchard, J. LeRoy Ward
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Excellent PMP Exam Preparation Resource

I listened to this CD set twice supplementing some information by reading PMBOK. I passed the PMP exam on my first attempt! If you spend 30 minutes commuting everyday, this CD set is highly recommended. I did not join any study groups or buy expensive books on PMP preparation. The formation for which I had to refer to PMBOK was mostly, Earned Value formulae as it is hard to grasp mathematical formulae just by listening.Anyway money spend on this CD set is well spent and you won't regret your decision to buy it.

Seize the Work Day

No need to look any further, this is the book you've been waiting for. If you have a Tablet PC or are thinking about buying one, the book you need is Seize the Work Day: Using the Tablet PC to Take Total Control of Your Work and Meeting Day by Michael Linenberger. This is by far the best book written on the subject. I had already read several of the available how-to books and idiot's and dummies' type guides on the subject before discovering Linenberger's masterpiece. I read the book during a weekend trip and have been using it as a reference since. The author's enthusiasm is infectious, and you'll find yourself getting caught up in it, configuring your tablet to work like a PDA, buying a portfolio case to carry it, taking and storing your notes as digital ink. Although it would undoubtedly be best if one could follow his advice to the letter, some of us will not be able to put all of his recommendations into practice. Even if you can't follow all of his suggestions- perhaps your organization's IT department won't agree to allow your Tablet PC on their network, or for whatever other reasons you decide not to use your Tablet PC as your primary desktop computer, or you decide you can't live without your PDA- there is still a tremendous amount of useful information in this book. There are plenty of good books out there about Tablet PCs, Windows Journal, FranklinCovey PlanPlus, FranklinCovey TabletPlanner, Microsoft OneNote and the other software the author discusses; but this is the one book that puts it all together for you, comparing them, discussing the advantages and limitations of each, and offering valuable tips and workarounds to overcome program shortcomings. Obviously the optimum software program has not yet arrived, but Linenberger helps you get the most out of what's available now and makes you feel confident about the future of the Tablet PC. Some of the information is already dated, but he provides updates on his website. This book is definitely worthy of updating and reprinting. Hopefully, an updated version is already on the horizon, or better yet- and please listen to this, Amazon.com- I really love your books, but a valuable book like this that is bound to be referred to again and again would be really terrific to have as a downloadable version. After all, why carry a Tablet PC and a book about getting the most out of your Tablet PC- when you could have the book right there on your Tablet PC?

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
An Excellent Reference

If you ever find yourself working at the command prompt in NT, this is the book you'll reach for over and over again. In my work, I do alot of file transfers, bulk loads of databases and test script development. I constantly use the Command Reference section in this book for command syntax and command line parameter options as well as it's examples.
This was the only book on the topic I could find and I wasn't disappointed!

Title: Learning the bash Shell, 3rd Edition (Nutshell Handbooks)
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Cameron Newham
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Very good book, but could be better

This book is an excellent resource for Linux-literate individuals. I use it to tutor students and adults on Bash shell programming. For beginners, it may be too difficult, but the people with hands-on experience will appreciate its content of the each chapter. It lacks real-world examples but with imagination and creativity, you can easily drum up a number of viable samples. This book is not for people who need to be spoon-fed.
