An A to Z Guide

"Your new book is absolutely superb. I'm going through it now for the second time. Quite honestly I thought I knew what was going on with Internet marketing but I've learned more in the first 100 pages of your new book and tweaked my site even more. I think it should be mandatory reading for everyone who wants to get into online marketing for real estate business. I have yellow stickies all over the book, marking things to change and improve my e-marketing. This book is absolutely top notch. Anybody who reads this book will learn things that will more than put the cost of your book (...) back in your pocket ten times over in the first year. It's fabulous. I'm terribly impressed with the book."

Probably the best book on OO

Those who have red a fair amount of stuff on OO methodologies, languages and technologies will have learned that ... no such thing as a standard OO methodology or language or technology exists. Every books author, programming languages inventor or methodologies designer gives a different definition of even the most common concepts you'll find in every book or article. Thus, the best one can do is to read as much as he can, and try to build his personal view of what OO means and brings. The literature, after all, is full of references, it's up to each of us to find the time to read them.In pursuing the objective to read the best available sources, this OOSC2 deserves a special mention. It has several qualities that put it aparts from the pool.First, it's complete. I mean, it could be your first book on OO and you would be gently but rigorously introduced to all the concepts you "should" (in "my" view) learn.Second, it teaches an OO programming language, i.e. Eiffel. And this is good both because learning a programming language will give you the concrete sensation of one important application of OO technologies, and because Eiffel has been invented by Dr. Meyer itself, so it's supposed that none can teach it better than him.Third, in addition to OO technologies you'll learn another product of Dr. Meyer's mind: Design by Contract. I know, this is finely interwined with both OO techno and Eiffel that it doesn't seems "really added", but part of them. True, but you would have to buy another separate book (by Dr. Meyer itself) should you ever been interested only on it.
This said, from this book you'll gain a solid introduction and very likely a thourough understanding of OO technologies and of one widely famous OO programming language. That is: a good investment, both for your wallet and your time.

Title: CCNA: Cisco Certified Network Associate Study Guide, Deluxe Edition

Lammle is once again at the top of his game.

When I passed the CCNA exam a year ago I used the CCNA Study Guide by Todd Lammle and passed the exam with a 924. Had I had this book I am positive I would have done even better. Lammle is the first name in Cisco Certification exam material and judging from the content of the book there is no doubt why.

Lammle approach to the exam is by far the best I know of and studying the book in the order presented gives you the best chance of passing the exam on the first try. With Internetworking basics like the OSI model and topologies like Ethernet are the very beginning to the CCNA certification.

From there Lammle has you working with switching, which I like because switching should come before routing. Then you move to the internet protocols, IOS, IP routing VLANs and router management. Lammle again makes sure that far more information than the exam requires is included.

After that you then start working with IPX, Access lists and then WAN protocols like HDLC, PPP, Frame Relay and ISDN. Each section has review questions, the new thing I am very happy to see is both written and hands-on labs.

The cd included has over 400 practice questions, over 300 flash cards for both the PC and the palm devices and entire e-book. Lammle again takes the opening and adds not 2 but 4 additional bonus exams.

Finally as part of the study process is the use of an actual router and since this can be an expensive investment, Lammle has given you a Router Fundamental Simulator and practice labs. All this in one book and at a price that should make everyone happy. Whether certified or not, whether looking to refresh you skills this book is a must have for every router technician.

Pass the PMP with Rita

Attended Rita's PMP Prep Class. This class was great. The book is one of the major tools to passing the PMP exam. I already went through 200 hours of formal training, but it was Rita's class, book and CD that got me through the exam. Studied about 30 hours, with the book and Exam question CD and pass with a 161/200. Could not have done it without Rita's book.
