Typical Microsoft Garbage

The only thing this book accomplishes is to let you know some of the things that can be done with Access. It gives you examples and says copy this and see how it works. It does very little in the way of explaing why or how something works and it does nothing to help you write your own real world code. If you have VBA programming experience you are already far ahead of this book, if you don't it still will not help you. Save your money and look elsewhere.

Written by a guru programmer for programmers

This book is a work of brilliance. I felt like I had an expert coder sitting there with me teaching me. So many things I liked - too many to mention. I came into this book thinking of tsql as a weak language. I left it feeling like tsql was stronger than pl/sql, the language I learned when I was an oracle dba.

Very comprehensive guide

I used this book in preparation for the exam 70-081 and found the labs which are based on Microsoft Official Curriculum very useful. The book deals with everything possible on Exchange 5.5 using lab exercises to demonstrate most of the theory including various connectors, Outlook web access, LDAP, POP3,IMAP and much more. I've used Microsoft Press for my entire MCSE training and this book lives up to the usual high standards.
The book is large but that is because the objectives of the module are vast. In fact it appears that Microsoft have split the new Exchange 2000 exam into two modules. To gain in-depth understanding of the Exchange system make sure you use this book to give yourself the confidence required for the exam.

Never have I read such a clear and easy to read textbook!

As a computer-engineering graduate, I've seen some of the definitions and theorems presented in this book. Just now - I really understand them fully!
The author really REALLY did a great job in clear, simple explenations.
What I liked most is the way the author presents his view on how problems should be approached, when to use this strategy and the useful examples - which really are explained step by step.I didn't see anything "left to the reader" - so the examples really help out in understanding the fine details.
Sipser uses clear, short proofs to theorems - which makes them easy to understand and to remember, and I might even say intuitive.
Never have I studied a subject so fast, and so thoroughly as I did using Sipser's book.
