Title: Windows Forms Programming in C#
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional
Authors: Chris Sells
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
No C# bookshelf should be without this book!

I am currently in my senior year of Software Engineering and started using C# as my primary development language last year. Soon after its release, I bought "Windows Forms Programming in C#" and found it the most commonly used reference on my extensive bookshelf.
Whether you need to know how to lay out forms, create multiple threads, bind to data grids, or a host of other topics, this is the book to get you started programming with C#.

Title: Oracle E-Business Suite 11i: Implementing Core Financial Applications
Publisher: Wiley
Authors: Susan Foster
Rating: 1/5
Customer opinion - 1 stars out of 5
Very disappointing

Though there are very few books about Oracle Applications Version 11i, this is not a good reason to buy this book. One gets the feeling that it has been assembled from a set of consultant's hand outs. It is badly written and the publisher seems to have dispensed with the services of editor and proof reader. For example, diagrams 1.3 and 1.4, meant to demonstrate the difference between single organization and multi-organization structures are in fact completely identical. This doesn't give one a great deal of confidence in the accuracy of the rest of the information in the book. The section on conversion contains the sentence "Converting legacy data can be time-consuming, expensive and complex" and then in the following paragraph "If the volume is too large, convert the legacy data via a custom software conversion program. The process can be complex and time consuming". I think we got the point the first time.It would be great if there was a good book about Oracle Applications, but this isn't it. I feel embarrassed to have spent my employer's money on it, if I had paid for it myself I would be very angry indeed.

Title: Object Thinking (DV-Microsoft Professional)
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: David West
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Good book although a difficult read.

Been a programmer and not an english graduate, I found the only gripe I had with the book is the level of english used throughout the book. Not as easy a read as the Wrox series of books.
The author obviously has a good command of the english language but I'm not to sure if the intended audience has the same.
If english is not your first language I would not recommend this book.
If you want a good understanding of objects and an English lesson in the process I would recommend this book ,you might want to order a dictionary at the same time.

Should include this book as one of your materials

Hi, Why I give 3 stars is this book is not enough for the whole exam as they have missed legacy connectivity(this is really a vague topic and you really need help in this topic),messaging etc.I don't know whether the material for ejb is enough.But the material for security,Internationalization,protocols,design patterns,common architecture really tells what you should focus on. That is really good.For those chapters you really need this so that you don't have to break your head searching for material.Whatever material that is covered in this book is very concise.A real study guide you can say.But if they have covered all the topics I would have given 5 stars
