Title: The GRE Test for Dummies, Fifth Edition
Publisher: For Dummies
Authors: Suzee Vlk
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
A very concise math review


First of all, in general it is a well-written book. However, the coverage of the Analytical Section is VERY weak, in my opinion. Repeating ad nauseum that some schools don't bother about Analytical scores does not help when, in your case, they in fact care about it.
The math review is very good, but if you *have* background in mathematics or a related field (bear in mind that if it is not your case, just ignore this review), it is near useless. Seeing dozens of pages dedicated to this section and *near none* to the Analytical test is frustrating.
If you have to buy only one book and need training in the Analytical section of the GRE, I cannot recommend this book. But if you do not have this need and would like to get a good math review, just read the other opinions.

Perfect for those who are caught between userdom and gurudom


I'm not a smart man. But I know what Unix is. Or I thought I did. This book helped me learn the way Unix THINKS. It's a little old, but it's a great resource for people who know how to think, but don't know how to think like a sysadmin yet. Another O'Reilly triumph.

Great book i agree- especially for A+ core printer section


I have to agree with the numerous individuals who bothered to write a review. The material is presented in an excellent manner. I feel the "picture-book" appearance, as a Huntsville reviewer writes, IS appropriate for the whole mission of the book: to simplify and clarify the inner workings of what may seem scarily complex to a lot of people.
Computer technology is too vast for even the experts to know everything about it. Contradictory to what "Very Disappointed" from Irvine, CA has to say (expl-A-nations), this is a must for anyone who uses a computer.

Excellent book


I bought this book when I started to work on an Access application and found it is very helpful. This book targets toward the intermediate to advanced developers. It provides with many pratical examples and code. We can easily port the code into our applications. The book not only covers the basic and advanced tables, forms, queries, and reports, but also covers VBA, Windows API, security, maintenance and distribution. After reading this book, I became more masterful at Access development.
