Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Best book to prepare you for the exam

I found this book as the best resource to pass the exam. The advantage this book has over Kim Heldman's book, which I also read, is the focus this book has towards the exam. It highlights all what you need to memorize, concepts that you should know, etc. The sample questions aren't all that great. From a strategy perspective, I would recommend that you first read Kim Heldman's book to get a thorough understanding of Project Management and then use this book to prepare for the exam. Best of Luck. BTW: Don't forgot to read and reread the PMBOK.

Not for Beginners

Someone handed me this book when I was just starting out with ASP. It took me days to even figure out where to start! By that time, I was so frustrated I went out and bought a tutorial and started from scratch- since that was still about all I knew after going from cover to cover of this book.While this book can be a helpful reference now, I find myself never touching it. There are plenty of better reference books out there. Definately not worth the frustration.

Title: The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers

Authors: Scott Kelby

Excellent book -- just buy it!

Mr. Kelby did a great job with this book. I have several books on Photoshop, three supposedly specific to photos. This one will likely be the one to which I keep referring due to the excellent organization. Other books present similar information, and this is not the only good book, but it has one outstanding quality: it is well organized by topic, and you can find stuff again in a snap. Some books that have a lot of good information are not organized, so you have a hard time finding stuff again. That is very important to me because I generally only remember how to do the stuff I do all the time, and often need to find specifics on particular techniques again.
Some people don't like the cutesy stuff, and Mr. Kelby does open each subject with a little attempt at humor, but he keeps it brief, and the text in the procedures is all down to business. His experience and talent as an editor shows -- very little excess verbiage, yet very few gaps in the essentials.
I bought this book after becoming very familiar with Photoshop, but I don't think you would have to be to make good use of this book. Mr. Kelby is careful to include basic PS user interface information along with the digiphoto procedures. There are often many ways to do a task in Photoshop, and Mr. Kelby is good about presenting multiple equivalent approaches. He also continually mentions keyboard shortcuts, which helps a lot with efficiency, and is very useful in a book because digging them out of the Adobe documentation is not so easy.
I highly recommend this book for people who want to learn to use the tools in PS to work on digital photos. You don't have to be a pro or be using a digital SLR -- there is a ton of good information in there to help you get the most out of snapshots from a little point-and-shoot. Once you get PS installed and a very basic understanding of it, and have a decent photo printer, this book could quickly get you making much nicer photos.
I rate it a 5 of 5 stars, and I don't generally do that.

Get this book first, before enrolling in an expensive course

This book will get you up and running on Bioinformatics in no time. I wish I got this book before I enrolled in a $$$$$ Bioinformatics course. I got more knowledge and information from this book $$$$$ than the course! And I am just in chapter 5 of the book and I'm more than half way through that $$$$$ course.
