Good book -- but for CISSP??

This book is just as good if not better than the 1st edition. This book is what sys admins have needed for years and now they have it. The 2nd Edition is not just a few more exploits and info with a new cover it is a whole new book!
yes some of the content is still the same but that is because that exploit of bit of information is still valid, if you got the first one and feel it was a big help (which think 99% of people who got it thought) then i would HIGHLY recommand getting the 2nd edition.
Only bad part was no cd!
Where is it? I know you can buy it from them but i think it should come with the book and they put the rpice up ... or something!
Other than that great book, well needed by everyone!
*about me: i am ... from London UK, you can work out the rest ;)

An encyclopedia of Datacom information

For the stated audience -- academics and self-study professionals -- it is hard to envision a better single volume study of datacom principles. Divided into five primary parts (overview, data communications, WANs, LANs, and Networking Protocols), it can provide excellent first course source material to provide a general overview of datacom principles and techniques.
Note that, with as much information as being presented, the book is much more useful as a course text for study than for casual reading. However, it covers sufficient areas to be useful as a reference for the data & computer communications professional. Additional information is maintained by the author on his web site which provides more up-to-date information than can ever be maintained in a printed volume.

Title: Professional SQL Server 2000 Programming (Programmer to Programmer)

Good Breadth, Average Depth

I really enjoyed this book, but I feel that it should have been titled "Professional SQL Server 2000 DBA". This is not a book on Transact SQL programming, though there is some discussion of T-SQL in there. For T-SQL, a better reference would be Ken Henderson's "Guru" book.
Still, I felt that the book made me a better DBA, and that's important too. This book is a good introduction to lots of things, like DTS, that will in turn lead you to reading other, more advanced books. So if you are new to SQL Server, this is a good place to start.

Fantastic, really informitive and authors replies to emails

If you want to know ASP, be able to use it, and have no time to waste buy this book.
When I started at my present job I had never even heard of ASP before, I was and still am the only coder employed here so the only help I had was Teach yourself ASP 3.0 in 21 days. I read it cover to cover in less the three weeks, I tried every practice and every question. I have improved the sites code and performance because of the training given in this book. It enabled me to keep my job and impress the owners of the company, if you read Teach yourself ASP 3.0 in 21 days you will learn ASP, it is that simple.
I finished the book about two months ago, now I am looking for an ASP+ book if these authors had written a book about ASP+ as well, I would buy it sight unseen.
There are two or three day's lessons I had to read over and over to really learn what was being taught. But even with this little inconvenience I think this book rates a five star.
