Good exam prep

I read the book a couple of times and reviewed the questions multiple times at the end of the book. You can pass the exam with this book. Thought the book was great for the IT Project+ exam. However, used another reference to get a different look at the subject matter and terminology. The book was an enjoyable read. I did find a few typos/problems with the exams on the CD, but it was very useful overall.

Title: Final Fantasy IX Official Strategy Guide
Publisher: Brady Games
Authors: Dan Birlew
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

When I first bought the game, I didn't buy the guide. I beat the game in one week, totaling 28 hours. It was that easy. Then I bought the guide so I could get all of the secrets. Apparently, Eidos, or whoever wrote the guide, decided it best NOT to include the secrets of the game. Instead, it was thought a better idea to give a very short description of the sidequest and give a code so you could visit the website PlayOnline.com to get help. The point of buying a guide is to use it to help either beat the game, or in my case, finish all the side-quests. I refused to go to the website and still haven't finished a third of the side-quests. This is a sorry excuse for a guide.

The Greatest Programming Book of All Time . . .

I read this book a year ago, when I was 13, as my first exposure to programming. All I can say is wonderful!!! This book has taught me the entire C Programming Language, just as the title says. After reading this book, you will know everything, and what you don't know can be easily looked up in a book such as the equally excellent C Reference Manual. Right now I know C, C++, and Visual Basic; I don't think I could have learned anything if I hadn't bought this book.
If you're planning on buying this book as your first, beware that it's kind of like concentrated orange juice; don't expect to finish it in just a few sittings. I myself took about 2 weeks to finish the book; I think that after every chapter you should spend some time testing out your newfound skills.
