Publisher: Pogue Press
Authors: David Pogue
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
For the regular user who wants to understand Mac OS X


This books covers most of what all regular users of Mac OS X might want to know - or at least be able to look up. It is written in an easy to understand way, without becoming too simple. It is matter of fact and clear. The book describes all parts of Mac OS X Panther, without making it too complicated. For most regular users the level of knowledge this books gives is quite enough - and some might say that it is even too much.


I warmly recommend this book to anyone using Mac OS X who wants to know some more about the operating system and all that it involves. It also has some simple trouble-shooting, various tips, a very good listing in one of the appendixes of Where Did It Go? meaning some of the things in OS9 compared to Mac OS X Panther.


I use this book for my courses about Mac OS X for regular users and have also used its two former versions.

Informative & Easy to understand


This book is also one of my reference in database systems. Why? Because this book was written in a very informative way, it covers most of modern databases topic, e.g. RDBMS SQL3 ORDBMS OODBMS etc. Also it is easy to understand, lot of examples, etc. It is worth buying this book. I think it is suitable for any beginner or student or experienced guys who need a clearer understandable way.
Although this book is not enough, but it is a great starting point.

Excellent coverage of PL/SQL


I purchased this book knowing nothing about PL/SQL. I read the entire book and worked through most of the examples in a week of dedicated self-training. The material is presented in a logical order. All the examples worked. Although all scripts are provided on the CD that comes with the book, I typed in all examples which helped in learning the material. The only issue I had with some of the examples is the use of the DBMS_OUTPUT package. This package writes the output of some of the examples to the screen. However, it only does so in SQL*Plus or Server Manager. I was using a tool by Quest called TOAD. I compensated for this by sending the output to a temp table provided by the author and then queried the temp table to retrieve the results. It worked just fine. Working through the examples requires the Oracle database, which shouldn't be a problem since anyone can download Oracle for free from Oracle's website. I give the book a big thumbs up! I definitely feel I have the knowledge necessary to go out and write PL/SQL.
