The definative book on SNMP MIBs


This book is the best book I've read on SNMP MIBs. The author really knows his stuff. Most books on SNMP don't cover MIBs in enough detail. This book is a must have for any MIB designer. The author covers all the pesky little details that you need to cover.

Good examples and discussion, but...


A book of 1300 pages should have a good index. This one does not. As a reference, I seldom refer to it for this reason.

Title: VB and VBA in a Nutshell: The Languages
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Paul Lomax
Rating: 5/5

Convenient, Concise, Complete


As a VB client-server programmer, I hardly have the time to wait for VB's HTML help to appear, much less search through it! This book is really in a class by itself as far as VB references go. It's the perfect size to keep right at hand, yet it contains the answer to virtually every question I've asked it. The encyclopedia-type language reference is preceded by exceptional discussions of VB data types, classes, object models, and error handling, and also includes several interesting and useful appendices. About the only thing I've not found in it is an ASCII chart. The language element entries are peppered with sidebars on relevant topics, all entries are discussed with remote automation issues in mind, and great examples abound (the entry for the Format function runs to 9 pages, mostly examples). If you program VB for a living, you've got to have this book close by.
