Title: SPSS Survival Manual: A Step By Step Guide to Data Analysis Using SPSS for Windows (Version 10)
Publisher: Open University Press
Authors: Julie Pallant, Julie Pallant
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Extremely Clear and Helpful

This is one of the best step-by-step survival guides for statistical analysis I have ever used. Although it needs a little more detail on writing up the results of more advanced techniques like multiple regression, instructions are clear and to the point without a lot of extra "words" that just take time to read but do not add anything helpful. I have already pre-ordered 2 copies of the next edition!!!!

Title: Configuring SAP R/3 FI/CO: The Essential Resource for Configuring the Financial and Controlling Modules

Good Reference, what ever be the SAP version you use

Most of the books available are just describing the functionalities of FICO instead of giving you the REAL nitty-gritty involved in configuring a particular option. Some say that the book is out-dated with screen shots from 3.x. Fine, but do you have any other book in the market which gives you the essential basics from configuration point? And, I am sure the basics have not changed, much, inspite of latest releases.
This book proves to be a winner for every one - the FICO beginner-consultant, experienced consultants, cross-functional consultants, users etc
Till such time some one comes up with another book, with latest versions' screen-shots and with asset accounting/product costing put together in the same volume, this is the ONLY book any one can refer to in FICO configuration.

Title: Thinking in C++, Volume 1: Introduction to Standard C++ (2nd Edition)

Great book if you want to learn C++

I have bought many books on C, C++, Perl, Python and PHP among other programming languages. Many have been IMO good but Thinking In C++ stands out as one of the best. Overall he covers most, if not all of the topics needed for a person to develope into a strong and proficent C++ programmer.
I would like to point out that Bruce does not take the time to point out various features in IDEs such as VC++. If you are looking for a tutorial on how to use them this book is not for you. I see this a strength rather then a weakness and aplaude him for not biasing this book in favor of any compiler (gcc, VC++, Borland etc)or IDE.

Loved this book.. Did wonders for my website

I usually don't write reviews on books but I believe this book needed it. It was just what I was looking for which was a book that was not complicated and was straight to the point. This is what this book offers. It starts out with the basics on how to change your website to make is search engine friendly and then it moves on step by step until you have a website that not only has content but even gets search engine traffic. So if your looking for a book that could be used for the beginner and even the advanced webmaster you have found it. Great book 5 stars.
