Not a bad beginner's book


However, I quickly got through the book. Plus I need to know more advanced material for my internship that's not difficult but the book doesn't cover, such as creating an Excel sheet with ASP.
Also, their forms examples did not work for me, they gave me error messages when I tried them. I had to go online and read an ASP.NET tutorial to figure out how to get info out of a text box and use it as a variable in a SQL statement. That is what companies want to do on their web sites, they don't want static data like most beginner's examples have.

Eye Catching & Informative


There are plenty of reviews so I just wanted to comment on the "suggested progression" of preceding this book with "Creating Motion Graphics" by the same authors. There is no need to have gone through "Creating Motion Graphics" before using this book. At most,I'd recommend this book IMMEDIATELY after Chapter ONE of "Creating Motion Graphics" since this book is VERY step-by-step, and when one is just starting out, it is MUCH more helpful to go through several complete and broad projects to get ones feet wet(such as this book) than learning, in depth, a few concepts at a time, which is what you get in the first book if you go through chapters 2 and further. (You might be able to skip the first book altogether if you're already familiar with the adobe interface -- which I was NOT). After completing this book, THEN I'd suggest continuing in the first book at chapter 2 -- so that learning the concepts they teach in depth in that book have more meaning.

Great starting point


This is a great introduction to the world of ERP. After reading the book I bought copies for all the members of the team implementing the new ERP at my company. It helps you get a handle on the whole process from 20,000 ft, and makes the idea of totally changing the company not so scary. The only problem I had with the book is that the binding was terrible. The book fell apart on my first reading. But I liked it so much, I put in in a two ring binder.
If you have been asked to work on your company's ERP and are not sure what you got into, this is the book for you.

Incredibly Helpful Do's and Don'ts


If you are involved with software development projects, reading and applying the advice in this book can make the difference between on-time completion or never-ending redevelopment. McConnell covers the entire development cycle and presents his successfully tested methods.
He begins by outlining the mind-set that is required to complete the software development project. He then follows the cycle from planning to implementation to wrap-up.
