A very passive educator/author

First of all, I bought this book from Amazon as there are no classroom courses offered on SPSS in the place where I come from; thus I have to learn it on my own. This book should be labeled as a School or Classroom Edition and should not be sold publicly because it needs an instructor to guide you. The questions at the end of every chapter carry only a few answers to refer to. The author is not much help either and was so passive when I requested to be referred to the full answers to the questions saying that the reference for this is only for the instructors teaching the course.
Individuals intending to buy this book for self-learning should think twice. Aside from the absence to the full reference for answers to questions on each chapter, Marija Norusis, is the most passive authors I have ever come across.

The greatest Mac book I have ever found

This book is by far the best book for beginner Mac users or anyone for that fact. I have had years of experience with Macs and bought the book for my mother. I told her I would read it to see if any of it would help her. I read the whole thing the first day and couldn't put it down. The humor and simplicity of the book made it very easy to read. I would suggest it to anyone even if you already know everything and anything about Macs.

Windows who?

I bought a book once entitled "Programming in C++". As it turned out the book didn't have one ounce of C++. It was devoted entirely to C. "Programming Microsoft Windows Ce.Net" is the same story. There are no mention of classes or another other aspect of object oriented .net programming. The book spends all of 5 pages discussing the CLR. No. This book should have been entitled "Programming Windows 3.1". Oh. Oops. That book is already out there, so get that one instead!

A Perfect Resource

This book has the most accurate information on all the Quickbooks features, and the explanations are so easy to follow that it's like having a private tutor. No matter what you need to do, this book has instructions, even if you don't want to do things the way Quickbooks normally works. These workarounds, along with all the "insider" information and tips, make this book an incredibly useful, wonderful, guide to getting everything you need out of Quickbooks.
