There could be more important theory in the book.

This book, should allow the student to be able to solve the problems just by using this book. It does not. A solution manual to this book should be provided for.Someone please e-mail me back on this.

Also buy Volume 2!

This is an excellent companion to Volume 1 and well worth the cost for not only the book, but also the industry specific CDs. There is a separate CD for each industry specific data model, however it wouldn't take long for a person to buy just the book and end up spending more in man-hours trying to create the data model from the book, which isn't a very good use of your time. Buy the CD also.
My organization found this book a tremendous help on one of our projects. The time saved on just one project will more than pay for the book and CD.
This is not a how-to for data modeling, however I believe it should be purchased along with your how-to book if you are interested in learning
I know there are other universal data models available. However the others I've seen are either very simple, don't have a CD, and don't have near the content as these models, or they are unbelievably expensive.

A Review From A Wireless Capacity Planning Mgr.'s Perspectiv

I thought this book gives an excellent overview at the 10,000 foot level of all the related technologies. It's perfect for someone in either a Technical Manager or a Senior Manager role to understand the basic vibe of what these technologies are and how they work without getting bogged down into too much "bits and bytes" level detail.
I found the book to be a bit lacking on some dimensioning and planning details and methodologies though.
Overall, it's a good book to reference with.
