Well right, easy to use pakage

I bought this book because it was the only book I could find on the new CompTIA exam. Turns out, it's an excellent book, really easy to read, covers everything, and has a lot of good sample test questions. As previous readers have said, the DVD is great--like buying a book and getting a whole other training product for free!

Title: MDX Solutions: With Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services

Not for the faint of heart

Title: Programming Perl (3rd Edition)

Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
The complete reference.

I agree heartily with the previous review. If you want to learn to program in Perl, this book is not for you. The book is a overview of the perl language. Most of the book is a reference of perl functions. So if you want to know absolutely every perl function this is for you. If you are interested in practical usage, examples, etc, this book is not for you.

Title: Learning XML, Second Edition
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Erik T. Ray
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Good overview

Learning XML provides a relatively useful overview of the topic, though it doesn't go that much in depth.
I'm giving 4 rather than 5 stars because I found the discussion of entities and notations somewhat confusing.
