Title: Programming Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: Francesco Balena
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Great Book!

The author is obviously a very experienced VB Developer and a very honest one at that. This is my 2nd Microsoft Press book and I'm very surprised at the amount of good content and lack of MS propaganda in this book. Francesco Balena clearly explains the do's and don't's of writing VB code and explains and shares benchmark results in varying coding styles.
After writing ASP pages for about 6 months it was a natural progression for me to build ASP Components using VB Compiled DLLs and this book not only helped my coding techniques, but increased the performance of my Web Applications. I have really benefitted from his benchmark comments and attribute the performance gains I have received from them.
He is one of the few authors who keeps your attention with clear and concise sentences rather than hopeless humor and poorly written technical information. This book is definitely a MUST read if you want to get ahead in developing solid VB Applications, Components, Active X Controls and remote Components via DCOM. That's the part that I'm about to get into..cool stuff man!

Beginning Visual C#

I have C# how to program because i found it about 1500 , So i said it's great book and it were until chapter 9 but after that i think the author forget that this book aimed for beginners not professional C++ progammers, But with Beginning Visual C# i found the programming Easy and i'm happy with the stucture of this book it's 100% for beginners and the authors are the best.

Title: Applying UML and Patterns : An Introduction to Object-Oriented Analysis and Design and Iterative Development (3rd Edition)
Publisher: Prentice Hall PTR
Authors: Craig Larman

Excellent book and video combination!

Larman's book and video are concise and educational. I have increased my understanding of UML and UP tenfold and I am still learning from this material. I highly recommend both to anyone wanting to learn and apply the Unified Modeling Language using the Unified Process. In addition, coverage of fundamental design patterns makes this combination an excellent value.
Feel free to send me an email with any questions about my experience with the book or video. I have no affiliation with Mr. Larman or associated publishers. I am just a very satisfied customer.
I hope that more authors/publishers choose a similar format to this combination. Especially the large hard cover text book packaging at the right price.

Title: The Little SAS Book: A Primer, Third Edition
Publisher: SAS Publishing
Authors: Lora D. Delwiche, Susan J. Slaughter
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Almost perfect reference book for SAS

Although this book appears, at a glance, to be slim, it has all necessary content for both SAS beginners and advanced users. Not only did the authors try to explain each topic of SAS commands and the rules in quite sensible words with easy examples, but also they did a wondergul job in organizing all those complicate stuff in a very decent way. Although there is a catchy that since it was revised in 1996, some of quite interesting features of the current SAS version is not included, and although I still have some SAS books more recent, this one is still what I rush to first whenever I need to look for something.
