Authors: Walter Ciciora, James Farmer, David Large, Michael Adams
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Excellent tutorial and reference

This book is a remarkable survey of a very broad field. It is necessarily somewhat superficial in its coverage of some of the more abstruse topics, but provides the necessary essentials an engineer needs to operate in the cable television environment. Unlike mere compendia of archival publications, this book has a consistent pedagogical viewpoint and notation. It is oriented towards practicing engineers, providing just enough theory to support successful problem solving. I recommend it to anyone working in the field.

Title: ASP.NET Data Web Controls Kick Start
Publisher: Sams
Authors: Scott Mitchell
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
DataGrid, DataList and the Repeater Learned correctly

Mr. Scott Mitchell's book: Asp.net Data Web Controls Kick Start is an excellent book to get the novice of Asp.net Data Web Controls up and running quickly. I had a probelem, emailed him, and he immediately responded with the solution to my problem. I was truely grateful to Mr. Mitchell. Using stored procedures in SQL Server and retreiving only the needed redcords via a stored procedure "chapter 8", proved to be indispensable.

I was able to easily understand his code and apply his techniques and methods to my projects (I'm still a student). Even my classmates were amazed of my understanding of the asp.net DataGrid features. So I simply recommended Asp.net Data Web Controls Kick Start as the book to use to grasp the pertinent information needed to succeed and think.

As a beginner in ASP.Net, I truely and honestly recommend this book as your Kick Start and reference to the DataGrid, DataList and the Repeater. The step-by-step hands-on examples makes this book also a great tutorial. The programming language was great (VB) and I'm sure a person that is familiar with C# will not be imtimidated with the VB.net code. The book also offers more information on the topics by offering online resources. Thank You Mr. Scott Mitchell

Buy this book and you will not be disapointed.
Sincerely and honestly

Good Basics for CISSP review

I felt the need to respond to the negative reviews of this book. The ISMH is designed to give the reader an introduction to specific basic material in a domain format under the CISSP program. It was never designed to be a brain-dump or all inclusive study guide to pass the exam. Subsequent volumes of this series either updates or introduces other topics in each domain.
If you are looking for an all inclusive study-guide for the CISSP cert then this book is not for you. However, it is easily arguable that no book can be an all inclusive tome of the expansive subject matter the certification covers. I highly recommend the recommended reading list on the ISC2 web site.
