Title: Final Fantasy IX Official Strategy Guide
Publisher: Brady Games
Authors: Dan Birlew
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
Not totally helpful

I picked this strategy guide up with the game, like I usually do when I buy a new Final Fantasy. The difference this time was that it didn't offer the kind of information that a strategy guide should offer. It would start to tell you about a secret and then it would refer you to Squaresoft's "PlayOnline website" where you could learn more information. It does this all the time, at least twice or three times per page, and while it is neat to look all of the information up on the website, which is pretty well made, sometimes it is more convenient to have a guide sitting next to you while you play the game than to run to the computer every time you have a question.

Title: Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages, Vol. 1: Core Technologies, Second Edition
Publisher: Prentice Hall PTR
Authors: Marty Hall, Larry Brown

Why can't I give it 0 stars

Total watse of the money. Full of useless information (like the mime type of lotus notes files). I would expect a book that had JSP and Servlets in the title would actually talke about them in depth. There are a lot of useless examples that you want to skip, but then you end up skipping the 10% of useful information too.
