Difficult read, but worth the effort.


This book was not an easy read for me, but if enough time is spent this book is written well enough for an assembly/hardware beginner to grasp it. I had no assembly experience and very little hardware design experience comming into this class, and using this book I was able to do very well in the class, and most importantly understand these concepts. Many people struggled(this is a CS class not EE), but most of these people simply did not put the time into reading the 100+ page chapters. Simply put the book does what its supposed to do very well if you put in the time.

Very good book


This is by far the best book on J2EE and Weblogic I have read. I like how the author explains every single step of a project (the bigrez.com project), from design to deployment, and justifying not only every choice he has made, but also taking time to explain other alternatives, why they don't fit for this project, and where they could be more useful. The Struts framework is widely discussed, and EJBGen has found a little place in the discussion.It's very nice also to avoid "J2EE for newbies" type of discussion, this book is really starting where many other books and references stop.

Best book on HTML front-end work


This is the book to own when it comes to developing for the HTML front-end. It covers everything, Javascript, HTML, DOM, Dynamic HTML, the whole lot. It does it well, which is amazing given the amount of coverage. It's a little miracle of authorship and editing in what must be a five pound package. While other books of the same heft are loaded with worthless screenshots, this book is packed with meaningful, well organized, information.
