Study Java as an OO language

I'm dealing with OOD and UML for 5 years and this book gave me the opportunity to study java not only as an programming language ( Like all those "Teach yourself on 24..."). but as a real implementation to what I'm dealing with on OOD

"Easy" is an understatement!!!

This is an excellent first book for anyone who is just learning how to use Windows XP. It answers all the basic questions in an easy to follow visual style. The main index makes it a breeze to find out how to do a specific task in seconds.
As a tech support specialist, I recommend this book to anyone that needs help with Windows basics.

Title: Programming & Customizing PICmicro Microcontrollers
Publisher: McGraw-Hill/TAB Electronics
Authors: Myke Predko
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Over 1000 Pages of details without any filler or padding

This book is full of facts, examples and detailed discussions of everything PIC. Need to interface you PIC chip to external serial EEPROM, RS-232 connection, or that dreaded LCD display.. Then have no fear; Myke has it all covered for you. Have one of the chips without the required interface you need. don't worry, Myke shows you how to simulate it with bit banging techniques.
As to the El Cheapo programmer which has the PCB included in the book. R5 is 10k ohm. R2 should be 1k to work with more computers (or so myke says on his web site). R3, and R4 are 1k ohm; U3's part number is more likely 214-3339-00-602R.

Trial of PE3

For the gentleman who post the review below about not getting a trial version of the software with the book, others who are wishing to try it out do not need to look elsewhere if their copy does not come with a trial version. One can simply go to adobe's website and download any of their products for a 30 day trial period! - I personally do not own these book, I own two of Scott Kelby's books, I highly recommend those and purchasing PE3.0 it is a very powerful consumer-level digital photo editing tool and much more!
