A Must Have

This is a must have for anyone planning on taking the PMP Certification Exam. I took a ten week course in Project Management in preparation for the exam, and would NOT have passed this test on the first try without this book. It is insightful, focuses your study, and really helps you understand the types of questions you can expect on the exam.

Outstanding Book, But Not For Beginners

I am about through the book now and it has been very rewarding. Be warned, this is not for the beginner or faint of heart, particularly the chapter on the HTTP Pipeline. But then if you have been to DevelopMentor you know the level.
The concepts and code are covered masterfully and for the thinking programmer. Too many people write code without knowing the effects of that code or the possibilities open to them. Needless to say the inner plumbing of ASP.NET is covered very well. A lot of "power-programmer" techniques are illustrated.
You must have a background in the .NET Framework and probably in ASP 3.0. There are a lot of changes from ASP 3.0 and the amount of transparency in the technology is unprecedented. Fritz takes full advantage of that. I don't have a lot of basis for comparison but I have not found anything better than this on ASP.NET.

Great for Begginers!

This book is one of the best C programming language ever!
If you want to find out what C is all about, you should read this, but due to the current development of the programming language, I would advise you to better learn programming techniques or basics and then swith to a specific book on the evironment you plan to develop your programs (Borland C++, Visual C++, etc)
And, something you should be aware of, it does NOT cover anything but C, just ANSI C, not C++ and all the revolution around it. Not even an introduction to those development environments.

Very Bland, Better for Reference Then Study

This book takes the flavorless subject of "Project Management with Project 2003" and serves it up cold. The sections are well laid out but the book is lacking a logical structure. There are problems with Project but you won't hear about them in this book, obviously.

That said, after looking at several other books on this subject, I believe this is the best value of the bunch.
