Title: Don't Make Me Think: A Common Sense Approach to Web Usability
Publisher: New Riders Press
Authors: Steve Krug
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Practical Usability

A practical Web design usability guide, "Don't Make Me Think!" is based on empirical observation not exhaustive statistics. Steve Krug's five years of usability consulting and testing are distilled down to this thin yet gem-filled how-to. Krug observed how people actually use the Web rather than how we *think* they use it, gleaning key usability guidelines. Most folks can't afford a full-blown usability consult, but they can afford to buy a $35 book. This book shows you how to conduct your own usability tests on the cheap.
Easy on the eyes, and full of Krug's trademark humor, this book is a classic. Highly recommended. From WebReference.com.

Grossly overpriced and useless

I found some of the reviews interesting and would like to put a few comment of my own-We used David Kroenke "Database Processing: Fundamentals, Design, and Implementation" in a cram course for preparation of graduate placement test here in Chulalongkorn University last year, and everyone was happy with it, especially it offers very clear concept of database and database design, internet. I don't know why some of the "Amrican" reviewers give it a very low rating. May be for those reviewers who found the text difficult are not well prepared in the technology yet, in this case may be they can try some 24 days or dummy types of book...

Macromedia Flash MX 2004 Certified Developer Study Guide

The book is full of typo's and will not help you pass the test. Even if you memorize the book. And getting numerous 100% on Ben Forta's website - Macromedia Flash MX 2004 Certified Developer Study Guide "TEST" will only give you a false sense of confidence. Ben Forta's tests are direct questions out of the Macromedia Flash MX 2004 Certified Developer Study Guide. The book has lots of Flash A.S. 1.0, like proto and the old school object/class stuff which has very little to with the REAL ceritifaction test. Dont waste your $ buying this book, just start learning how to write A.S. classes and spend a few years working with Flash. I've heard that the 1st group of people to pass the certification test took a different test then the test's that are out now. I've heard that the 1st group to take the test got to see the "incorrect answers" if they failed. You will not get to see the actual test questions that you missed weather you pass or fail. I have yet to find anything helpful in passing the test except years of Flash work. Some of the online practiced test that are provided by 3rd parties will get your brain working but will not be of much help. I failed the test by a couple of points and was so discussed at the content in the book , not at it's inaccuracy but lack of any helpful content to pass the test. I'm able to recite 90% of the books content and answer all the books questions acurately but that wont help me pass the test, its a waste of time and money.
