Wanna Pass? Buy This Book!


This book was the first resource that I read to prepare for the exam. It was fun to read and I found it to be very useful. While I thought that the presentation and format was too simplistic, I was wrong - it was succeeding in teaching me the material!

Explains in Depth, important Info


Much like Hoffer's other book, which focuses on an earlier stage in the Sys. Devel. Life Cycle (Analysis & Design), this is the next book in "the series".This book goes over some of the fundamental concepts of modeling and relationship diagramming which were covered in the previous book. However, it picks up where the other left off and explain in-depth Database creation maintainence, and so on to a point where most can understand, and all can benefit from. Another good job from these strong Authors

A Powerful New Approach to Leadership


I think of myself as a confident person, and I thought I knew what confidence was, but as I read Rosabeth Moss Kanter's newest book, "Confidence: How Winning Streaks and Losing Streaks Begin and End," I began to understand for the first time what confidence really means in practice, what I need to do to build it in my organization, and why I have often fallen short of my aspirations. I thought of confidence entirely as a personal trait -- I am confident, you are confident, she is confident, etc -- but Dr. Kanter's sophisticated, entertaining and above all convincing argument made me see that it is much more than that.

It also means confidence in others (colleagues and teammates), but most importantly, it means confidence in your organization, knowing that it will support you and enable you to do what needs to be done. Dr. Kanter, through a wealth of interesting stories -- about businesses, schools, sports teams and even a country (South Africa)-- shows exactly how leaders and Change Masters (one of her earlier books) operate to build confidence systematically for everyone's benefit. This book will change the way you lead and manage.
