good book, ok reference


it's pretty good book, doesn't repeat itself, I was programming in servlets before, and just wanted to refresh my memory and find out what other technologies came out for web programing. This book did the job. I believe it's also good book for the beginners. Doesn't show you a lot of tricks though, just straight up, but has a lot of code examples.

Great book to grasp the foundations of modern CV


this book sucks! terms are often inconsistent and expressions always unclear. Many simple concepts are written in very complicated ways. Perhaps this is because the author want this book to look more "academic". Don't buy this book unless you are already an expert in this area

Good practice problems


Contrary to what some say about this book, this book is not for the beginners. Yes, it does cover lot of basic concepts, but they are tuned for those who already have a fundamental understanding of C#, Java, or C++ (all related to C). What separates this book from others is its practice problems. The best way to learn programming is to practice, and this book provides enough practice problems to really enhance one's understanding of C#. Highly recommmended for intermediate level C# developers.

Back to the Lost Glory of ERP


We have seen the ups & downs of ERP Industry - companies closing their shops in the name of ERP, law suits on ERP Vendors & Consulting firms and the worst era of ERP Consultants. Over seventy percent of ERP Implementations are nightmares. In simple words - a lack of understanding of the fundamental Principles of ERP systems, led to most of these issues.
In the world of ERP horror stories, along comes Travis Anderegg with his solution. This is a good reference book for anyone involved in any ERP including Top Management and even students, not only to implement but also to correct and optimize the ERP system. In his book author stresses that we need to look beyond ERP and treat it as an ERM (Enterprises Resource Management) tool.
Even though the book is bulky (about 750 pages), it is very interesting and I read it like a novel and completed it within two days. It helped me in analyzing the mistakes we committed in earlier implementations, what could have been done to get the best results and the way we can optimize the current system. The concepts & tools which he explained, like CIBRES Score card, Spider Diagram, Objectives & events, Transition Strategies, Environmental Characteristics, role of consultants and structure of Project Team, RFP, TQM Philosophy applied to ERP, ROI Techniques, case studies etc. to name a few, helped me in sharpening and widening my knowledge of ERP. The whole scenario of ERP is an ocean but Travis tries to give a good overall picture on most of the aspects.
Overall the book is helping me to widen and sharpen my horizon in ERP. I strongly recommend you not to treat it as a Certification tool but to use it for your success in ERP. Once again I congratulate Travis for his effort on taking back the lost glory of ERP.
