Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Jason Hunter
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Good for newbies

This is the type of servlet reference I have been trying to get a hold of for a long time and it is easy to by books that don't really have the type of content you are looking for. I write servlets on a daily basis as part of my job and most of the time,I need just enough reference to get me going in the right direction. This is an excellent resource to have and most of all, it pretty good reading and will get you started on e-commerce type servlet application development. Yep - this is another excellent OReilly book. Good job Jason Hunt.

Title: C++ for Dummies (4th Edition, Completely Revised)
Publisher: For Dummies
Authors: Stephen Randy Davis
Rating: 2/5
Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5
Hardly helpful

This book is very similar to other Dummies books I have read. It got both very good and very bad passages. Most often the
Dummy books are good at explaining the easy theory (of C++), and terrible at explaining the hard theory. But I also have a feeling that the author has not spent enough time on selecting material for the different chapters, as the entire book is not easy to follow.

My two stars goes the the parts of the book which touches the introductory C++ theory. For learning more advanced C++ with heavy use of pointers, consider buying C++ Primer.

Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Excellent for beginners and useful for proffessionals

In this book I found that kind information I never found reading dry technical documentations about COM. I recommend this book for professionals because it is a good book to review your knowledge and discover some new look on COM. The style is attractive and amusing. This book is very friendly for intelligent humans.

Title: Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0: Deluxe Learning (Deluxe Learning)

Excellent starting point!

Although finding and reading a good Visual Basic book is an excellent start to ones Visual Basic career, I cannot over emphasize how important it is to get ones hands on a copy of the Visual Basic compiler. With both the book and the compiler you can quickly become comfortable with the Visual Basic Development Environment by typing in some of the source code in the book and test running it for yourself. Eventually, when you feel comfortable with your knowledge of Visual Basic you can begin writing and running your own programs. Visual Basic Deluxe Learning Edition will allow you to do just that.
A highly recommended set of materials!
