A pattern language for Web stie design


This must-have book defines a collection of patterns for effective Web site design. Like Christopher Alexander's seminal work on patterns in architecture, the patterns range from very broad to very focused, taking you from the initial notion of what type of site you need to specific details about navigation, branding, etc. It's scope and refinement makes it much more compelling than most of the patterns work that has been done elsewhere in software. I can't imagine designing a new site without it. Thank you!

THE Place to start with MDX


I have read and found "Fast Track to MDX" to be easier to read and understand. There are many charts, diagrams, documentations and pictures to help the reader. I have tried many of the MDX statements in the book with success. The book has explained many things in a very understandable way, including Lead, Lag, Filter, IIF, Distinct Count, Count, Member Properties, Current Member, Previous Member, Syntax usage and more. Also, to my amazement, the CD included is ProClarity v5. ProClarity is a very good tool compared to other viewers and very user friendly and powerful. This book is good for both the beginner and intermediate users.

well....not bad


After 3 days of use I have already gotten my money's worth out of this excellent reference. Each chapter is close to standalone which means you can look up what you are interested in without getting too bogged down. There are also seem to be lots of good sample databases on the CD, although some of the demo subdirectories are already out of date. This is my thickest reference book yet! ;-}

Outstanding Series


You could have better information provided by illiterate people who have never used a computer. The way this book explains how to a simple action, leads you to believe you are breaking the code for DNA. I would not recommend this book to anyone serious about learning MS Office. You would be better off just clicking around aimlessly in the programs themselves. I myself unfortunately have to use this book to pass the course my college is giving. We going to petition my college not use this for this course again. Sorry, but this how not to learn MS Office save your money for a "Office for Dummies" book.
