An excellent resource to pass the Network+ exam


This book is excellent. Although I have been "officially" working in the computer industry now for about 4 years, it has only been in the last year that I have taken the time to persue computer certifications. I first took the A+ exam to get a relatively easy cert under my belt. Then I set my sights on the Network+ cert....

An amazing piece of work


SICP is a great book. If you are a patient reader and willing to work the exercises, then this is the single best book you could read about programming in general and about the Scheme dialect of Lisp in particular. I found it well-written, thorough and clear.
Read this book with an open mind. It is not "Teach Yourself Programming in 21 Days". Many people don't appreciate programming theory; they would rather get on with it and start programming. If you are one of these, then you may find yourself irritated by the theory SICP includes. However, if you want to excel as a programmer it is worth taking the time to learn the theory. Some ideas may penetrate slowly but when they do, the rewards will make up for the effort.
This book can be used as an introductory computer programming text, but I suspect that students won't get full benefit until they have a couple of years of programming experience under their belt.
This book will make you a MUCH better programmer--something that the many books that teach a programming language but ignore computing principles can not do.

Ivor is king!


I also purchased Ivor's book on Java programming and I was up and running with in no time. The same goes for this book, this is, although, a rathar large one (1000+ pages) but it's no professionaly written, so understanble. Makes learning a pleasure, even if it is the pain that C++ is. It starts off with the very basics of C++ and moves up the scale to Pointers, Classes, OO programming and of course, MFC. Beginner? head this way!
