Gran explicacion de la Cadena Critica

He leido Cadena Critica (Goldratt), Project Management in the Fast Line (Newbold)y Critical Chain Project Management (Leach). Este ultimo da la explicacion mas exacta de las aplicaciones que tiene la Cadena Critica a la Gerencia de Projectos. Leach define clara mente que CCPM va mejorar el projectos en su totalidad (system thinking), reduciendo costos, tiempos de entrega, incremeta la confianza del equipo de Gerencia del Proyecto en tomar desiciones y sobre todo reduce la variabilidad de este. Un par de puntos en los que les falto trabajar mas a Leach fue en la aplicacion de Cadena Critica en proyectos multiples y dar mas sustentacion a la estimacion de tareas 50/50.

Learning Java from the ground up

As a Software Engineer, I wanted to LEARN Java! I've bought other books that kill you will facts but don't walk you through the process of working with a new language that you're trying to learn. This book is FANTASTIC! If you're interested in Learning Java, this is the place to start! It's just like being in a college classroom but with the advantage of being able to go back and re-read the concept that you may be having trouble understanding and not have to be embarrased by asking a lot of questions. I keyed-in every example from this book as I worked through it to completion. I was again very pleased with how few typo's were. Typo's are not what you need, when you're just starting out with a new language. Obviously the author and publisher did a great job in reviewing their text before publishing it. Something that more and more publishers are skipping in the rush to get a book out the door. Whether you are experienced or not, this book will help usher you into this new language. Several of my co-workers in software engineering have bought this book based on my recommendation and they too, thought it a GREAT Book. I'm confident you will too!

Title: Beginning ASP Databases

Good for Database and ASP coding

This book is really not a step up from the Beginning ASP 3.0 book except for a added detail on connecting to databases and querying databases. If you already know databases and SQL then I would leave this on the shelf. Otherwise it is good for the beginner.
