Title: Moving to VB .NET: Strategies, Concepts, and Code

A good first book for VB.NET

This is a good book for getting the concepts down as far as the differences go between previous versions of VB and the .NET platform version. The only knock I would have is I thought the author got a little too hung up on the inheritance and memory management issues, dragging it out a bit. But overall I found out what I wanted to know.

BIG Bangs for your Bucks!

Okay, not to repeat everyone else, but simply ask yourself this...Where else could you get some of the best LW Video tutorials (hours of them, 2.19 or so GBytes!) and an excellent book thrown in for this price? You will probably fined that the answer is nowhere, so treat yourself, you won't regret it!

Hottest SAP Book in Town !!!

I am a SAP Consultant for FICO for the last few years and I have experience in Data Warehousing projects. Now I have entered into the world of SAP-BIW, with my past experience in DW. I am involved currently in a SAP-BIW project.
SAP- BIW has a Back End called 'Administrator Work Bench', which is all about Data Modelling, Data Targets which leads Info cubes, Info source and Data source. The back end process is all about gathering data from the data sources and put them in BIW thru R/3. The Front End is called 'Business Explorer' and this helps in viewing the data gathered for decision processing.
Critical points about the Book: The Book deals only in Back End processes and it does not teach about Front End, except querying (chapter 5). To know about Front End extensivley, one has to read "SAP BW Reporting Made Easy, 2.0B/2.1C" by SAP Labs Inc. Simplification Group.
Further even in Back End, it is not giving any info abt data modelling or data designing. It merely teaches how to transfer the data from Data source to BIW thru R/3. Regret that, it is not covering complicated transfers. This book is in-complete in many aspects. In other words, the book teaches the core functions required from BIW Consultant for handling the Back end processes.
Positive points: Authors deserve appreciation for having written a book needed in the crucial time, since SAP- BIW is getting implemented in many places. The book is concise and clear in whatever topics they deal with.
I should also say that this book can be useful from beginners to intermediate level. Beginners mean, those who have prior experince in SAP or in Data Warehousing but new to SAP- BIW.
Thanks for reading.
