Title: Programming Interviews Exposed: Secrets to Landing Your Next Job
Publisher: Wiley
Authors: John Mongan, Noah Suojanen
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Very helpful

Having gone through a number of technical interviews, this book definitely hits home. It includes questions I have encountered in interviews and actually came in handy when I interviewed for my current position.
That said, the most important thing a candidate needs to have is the ability to actually do the job. While studying this book will give you an edge in an interview, the candidate still has to ensure that he has the skills to get the job done.

Title: Programming Microsoft ASP.NET
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: Dino Esposito
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
Lots of info, but doesn't separate practical info

Although he does a good job of providing a lot of information about ASP.NET, Esposito neglects to separate details of the .NET framework's internal workings from the practical information that developers need to know to build real apps with ASP.NET. This makes for some very dry reading and it can be difficult at times to figure out how to accomplish the day-to-day tasks needed in web application development.

Title: Code Complete
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: Steve McConnell
Rating: 1/5
Customer opinion - 1 stars out of 5
Over-hyped, disorganized laundry list

Junior programmers will probably enjoy this book, but profi programmers won't find more than 5% of this book useful. There is too much theory, and the whole book would fit to 300 pages (instead of 840). Buy this book if you dont have more than 2-3 years of software-construction experience. This book would deserve 5 stars, when you change the name to: "Code complete: a practical handbook of software construction for BEGINNERS". For experienced programmers is 3 stars rating of this book more than enough...
