Title: Java Concepts
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Authors: Cay Horstmann
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
Would give it 3.5 stars if I could


I used this for my Computer Science I text at North Dakota State. It gives a solid intro to COMPUTING CONCEPTS, hence the title. It makes no attempt to teach every detail about Java, but if you have a good professor they'll let you know about the Java API documentation, from where you can explore everything about it. The book is riddled with errors, but Horstmann lists them on his web site and has made and effort to correct them in subsequent printings. The first chapter on applets (Ch 4) is horrible, though, and that really drags down my view of the book. It gives people a bad feeling early on and drives some people away. Also, arrays/vectors should be covered earlier because they would make some things a lot easier to do.

The simplest guide to passing the exam!


This book clearly explained the psychology behind the different types of questions. That gave me a clear time advantage in answering questions on the exam. On many questions which I didn't know the answer right away, I was able to figure it out by identifying the pattern that PMP Cert For Dummies identified. They go in much more depth than Rita's book, which I found very superficial. Explaining the question pattern was enough to make the difference for me in passing the exam.
Get this book just for that reason!

Title: Network+ Certification for Dummies (With CD-ROM)
Publisher: For Dummies

Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Worth buying for the CD alone!


I used this book to pass the Network+ certification book. I have had some experience in networking though and yes there were some inaccuracies in the book. It's a good book just to refresh some things before you take the test though.
