Great book to get up and running with Servlets

This book is perfect for someone versed in Java to get up and running with Servlets. I read it through when I started developing with Servlets and still use it as a reference from time to time.

THE .NET Book.

I've bought this book originally because I heard it has a good overview of GC. But it's so much more.
Of over a dozen books I've read on .NET this is the one I would recommend the highest. It goes over all the basics you should know, clears up all the assumptions you will have and explains how .NET functions behind the scenes. Everything from Delegates, Events, Assembly layout to GC is covered in exhausting detail. You really don't understand .NET if you don't know these things to the level they are given here.
Very hard to put down book, and is an absolute must-read for .NET developers.

Fast Track to MDX

This is an excellent book for someone who's new to MDX or even at the intermediate level. I've been searching for a book that's to-the-point and focus solely on MDX ... this is it. There are many good, real-life examples in the book and very easy to understand. This book has answered so many of my questions about MDX and has helped me so much with my current project ... and I'm only on Chapter 6. I love it !!!

Full of tips and best-practice methodologies

Accessing databases and datastores via the internet is becoming commonplace today. This book gives developers the fundamentals of what databases are, how to connect to them with ADO.NET, how to access/manipulate the database information and, especially, how to present it in meaningful ways using ASP.NET controls and VB.NET. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to grow beyond static-content web pages and begin development of data-driven web applications.
Written by a team of 10 professionals with different areas of expertise, this book provides a solid foundation for creating web applications that rely on creating, modifying, and displaying information accessed from an SQL database, although the source can be any data repository that has an OLEDB or ODBC driver written for it. Filled with many rich examples, both in the text and in the hands-on exercises, the authors go beyond the "this is the code you need to insert" paradigm and explain what each section of code is doing, reinforcing lessons learned from earlier examples as necessary. The exercises can either be typed in or run from source downloaded from the WROX Press website, both are error-free. The book is full of tips and best-practice methodologies, with an entire chapter devoted to performance considerations. The exercises were tested on students in a school lab and common mistakes are presented in a section of each chapter. WROX Press also has multiple levels of support available to those who need it. The book finally culminates in a "real world" online-auction application that covers all the bases and gives comprehensive substance to the theory and examples previously presented. ---Reveiwed by William S.
