An Essential Reference

I purchased the Access 97 Developer's Handbook and was very impressed with the content. With it my skills in VB and in Access were greatly boosted. When I purchased Office 2000 I went ahead and purchased Access 2000 Developer's Handbook, not really expecting alot of new content - just updated content, which I felt I needed.
This book covers all of the Ins/Outs of Access programming. While it might be a bit much for an absolute beginner who has no prior programming skills, it is a good book for anyone who intends to do a significant amont of work in Access. This book has basic information as well as some rather advanced concepts and techniques. All topics are presented clearly and with good examples.
There is even a touch of humor interspersed throughout the text. Be sure to look for the discussion of the evolution of COM.
In comparison to the earlier version of book, the same general topics are covered but many of the solutions are even better than they were in the Access 97 Handbook. There are many examples of class modules and collections. The examples themselves are useful (I love the TaggedValues class - I only wish I had thought of it myself)and they provide a good jump off point for someone who wants to build his own class modules.
I would definately recommend this book to anyone using Access 2000, whether or not you already have the earlier version.

Very up to date information from leaders in the field.

Excellent all in one book reference to Python

I keep this book on my in reach book shelf. An excellent concise one book reference to the Python language. That alone would be worth the price of the book but the inclusion of appendices documenting the standard library and extending and embedding Python make it a bargain.

Title: Professional Apache Tomcat 5 (Programmer to Programmer)

Authors: Vivek Chopra, Amit Bakore, Jon Eaves, Ben Galbraith, Sing Li, Chanoch Wiggers
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
it is worth $25.

I looked through it in 1 day, from the programmer point of view, what I learned is totally worth I paid for the book, I have a clear overall picture of Tomcat, the components ( server, service, host,contexs),directories,especially the class loaders that helps me develop my web applications.
if you are just a programmer and a looking for some systematic inforation of Tomcat, you just need read 3 or chapters,probably this information is publiclly available in tomcat's offical website. this is why I finished in just 1 day.
