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.

Waiting for the Second part


For an Access programmer who wants to move past wizards and macros this is the book to buy. Updated with a chapter on ADO (there's still an appendix with DAO info) this gives you the most information in one book. I'm waiting for the second part.

Title: Core J2EE Patterns: Best Practices and Design Strategies

Most useful J2EE book (so far)!


I have worked in Java/J2EE for many years now. I found this book to be the most useful practical J2EE book so far and brings the subject of design patterns into real practice than some academic mumbo jumbo. Using the patterns in this book, I was able to design an archtiecture for any J2EE application I have encountered in my experience. I introduced this book to the junior developers on my team and was pleasantly surprised to see their skills and designs mature quickly. Perhaps the reason is (as authors say about the usefulness of using patterns) that we all used the same vocabulary in our design work and were able to quickly communicate and be "on the same page". If you are using J2EE or plan to, this is a book you simply cannot ignore. I highly recommend this book.
