Title: Graphic Java 2, Volume 2: Swing (3rd Edition)
Publisher: Prentice Hall PTR
Authors: David Geary
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

Look at all of those computer related books sitting on your shelf and honestly ask yourself...which ones were actually well worth your investment.
If you are like me only a few of those books sitting on your shelf were really truly worth your good hard earned money. Well, let me tell you what. Graphic Java 2 will be one of those books that you will look back at and say (...) I'm glad I purchased this book!
I bought this book to help me on my first GUI Java Enterprise program and it has saved (me) enough times for me to say that I would pay double it's current price for this handy book.
This is the most robust refrence book for the Swing API's you will find. If you are doing any GUI Java development and would like to get your code written correctly the first time then do yourself a favor and buy this book!!!! Actually even if you are currently not doing any GUI Java development I still highly recommend that you purchase this book.
This is the best book I now own and I own quite a few.

Good Network Simulator Program for CCNA exams

I like Boson Network Simulator for the following facts:

1. Network design which allow people to design their own network.
2. The package come with many labs
3. I pass with 949 for CCNA in Jan 21 2005 first time, thanks for CCNA Network simulator.
4. Tech support from Boson were very helpful, I don't have any problem to install Network simulator in different PCs.

Good luck on your CCNA and beyond.

Entertaining and in Simple English

Awesome book! I've tried to read through other books but they're all so boring and phrased in ways that only developers and tech savvy people can understand. This one explains it all in real, plain and simple English!!!

Title: Introduction to Electrodynamics (3rd Edition)
Publisher: Prentice Hall
Authors: David J. Griffiths
Rating: 1/5
Customer opinion - 1 stars out of 5
too bad you cant give zero stars

This book is simply the worst. John David Jackson needs to fight with Griffiths in a cage match. I would pay $10 to see that on pay-per-view... and I'm a pacifist. Seriously, though, this is really a terrible book. It is used at Ohio State University in their E&M sequence and everyone I know uses "Classical Electrodynamics" by Jackson to actually learn the material and then uses Griffiths to read the assigned homework problems. If what you want is an intuitive grasp of E&M without having to work too hard - this is PERFECT. But, if you are a serious physics student that wants to go to grad school and you are looking for a rigorous text, then dropping $100 on Griffiths is simply the worst decision you can make. The arguments are hand waving, the motivation is unclear, and the theory of electromagnetism (one of the most beautifully complete physical theories) is ripped apart and disjointed in an effort to hide slightly more complicated mathematics. But, like I said, for some people that is fine because that is all they need. So decide, is that what you want?
