Solid Overview

For a subject as broad as software engineering, Sommerville does a good job of introducing the topics of the still evolving discipline. The text is a good starting point for digging deeper into issues of interest.
I also read the 4th edition of this text. This edition is an improvement.

We were required to use this as a textbook as well. It is very hard to understand even for someone who has been programming for a while. Worst computer book I've ever bought.

Excellent first book for new SQL Server DBA's

This is a very nice book for new SQL Server DBA's or those who are moving up from a DRDBMS to Microsoft's server side solution.
It is easy to read, and I never once got the impression that the authors were more interested in trying to impress me with their own knowledge of the product than trying to convey their knowledge to me. The book goes into every facet of SQL Server, and the hints and tips proved to be very valuable. While I did not find the tools on the included CD Rom to be very valuable, after a thorough reading through of this book I had the system set up, and a large production database in working order and backed up.
This book helps to take a lot of the fear away from what can be a very complicated program to use, and is worth every penny I paid for it
