Best one

This guide has all secrets in the game. If you want to complete the game `perfectly` this guide is MUST. Only one thing is spoil. This book doesn`t have `perfectly` way to use in some fight(ex: fight agains weapons).

Authors: Andre Lamothe
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Just what I wanted

Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus gave me the information I wanted on the fundementals of game programming. The clear explanations and examples made the sometimes complicated math--not my bag--much easier to understand. (and better than understand--to apply)
This was my first Andre Lamothe book and I would certainly buy others. His style is interesting and readable. If you want to explore game programming, this is a great choice.

MIBS under the Microscope

I highly recommend this book for anyone who needs to understand the structure of the SNMP Management Information Base. This book takes them apart and puts them back together. With often irreverant comments, the information presented will help those who work with mibs and agents on a daily basis to fully comprehend the purpose and structures.

Good...if you have the time

I got this book because, after using Adobe PhotoShop and Dreamweaver for a while, I had decided I wanted to design my pages completely in Flash. I had gotten quite a few books on DW and Photoshop and found myself performing many tasks easily after a short while. Unfortunately, I didn't get that out of Flash MX Hands On Training. THat's not to say that the book is worthless. The exercises included with the accompanying CD are good. However, I think the author focuses too much on you completing the exercises rather than explaining to you what you are doing and for what reason. THe author will take you step by step through the exercises but does not provide the proper background to actually do it without the exercises. I found myself repeating the exercises a number of times and still not getting down the basic task. That is, I couldn't do a number of the things even after having gone through the exercises because I feel the author spends too much time telling you what you have to do to complete the exercise. After going through the book and doing almost every exercise, I actually got discouraged and decided not to continue with Flash. However, I decided I would go with one of the other books out there and see what they have to offer.
Based on my experience I would have to not recommend the book.
