The book lives up well to its title


I know there are many hardware design engineers and students who suffer from "VHDL anxiety" since it tends to seem alot less intuitive than verilog (especially in this age when C has surpassed ada as a common programming language taught at universities). For this reason Yalamanchili's VHDL Starter's Guide represents a nice contribution to the field. There is enough material in the guide to satisfy, say a senior computer-engineering student who is being intorduced for the first time.
My only complaint about the book is its lack of appendices and specification of the entire language. So look somewhere else if this is the purpose for buying a VHDL book. However, as a place to start, it seems quite effective in developing the confidence needed to move on to the more technical aspects of synthesis and simulation.
By the way, the author has written a thicker introductory hardcover book on VHDL published by Prentice Hall. The title is different, but it is virtually the same content. Little if anything was changed from that book to this starter guide. So be careful.

A must read


In this book Microsoft , takes you all the way from explaining the basic concepts of mail servers and move on to installing, upgrading, migrating and clustering of exchange servers and in a very detailed way with many pictures that helps you understand the product even if you didn't work with it before.
Readers can notice easily the improvements in the MS books released for 2003 products over the ones released before for 2000/NT.
Reading this book will help you for sure do the daily tasks of exchange administration, installing, upgrading, lists, aliases and much more, if you are considering this book for clustering and for advanced recovery techniques you will be disappointed.
Worth reading.

Title: C Programming Language (2nd Edition)

Authors: Brian W. Kernighan, Dennis Ritchie, Dennis M. Ritchie
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
It's generally known as Kernighan AND Ritchie


The introduction credits Ritchie with originally developingth the language, so it seems unfair to leave his name out. Also, I don't think ANSI is part of the title. You are unintentionally creating the impression that this is a different book from the very well-known and highly regarded K &R.c
