Good book, indepth coverage of the materials it covers but you need more to pass the exam.

An extremely comprehensive look at Flash MX

Umm The book is alright just that it starts really slow. I guess its because they trying to show those that dont know about flash the ups and downs but the book is alright. In the middle and during the end it starts to get a little hardcore in some ways. They do cover the basic things in flash and shows u a little about what more a user can do. The CD that comes with it is interesting in some ways . So the book is okay for the newbie and i believe the elite in some ways to have around so i give it a 4. shrug ~

A classic textbook and reference for everyday needs

The "Introduction to Algorithms" book is well-known to those people that are related to Computer Science. It is a very well written book that proved entertaining and challenging when it was the primary text for our Algorithms class, as well as handy when confronted with real-life applications of the algorithms presented. I found the exercises very good, and I liked the fact that the chapters were self-containing.
The sections on linear sorting and hashing are very practical, in my opinion, but I suppose the same could be said about most of the other chapters.
Well-deserved 5 stars from me!

Goofy writing, but a great study guide

I just took the CISSP exam after 3 weeks of study. My main source was the Advanced CISSP Prep Guide by Krutz and Vines, with about 4 or 5 days spent on Harris's All-in-One Exam Guide. Harris's exam guide is full of [bad]jokes, [bad] clip-art, and [bad] quotes... but it's still the better study guide. Harris sticks with the information you need to know to pass, and she does a great job of explaining the concepts. She includes a lot of information that Krutz & Vines left out, information that showed up on my actual test. Krutz & Vines, on the other hand, pack their book with information I did not need to know, meaning I spent hours studying superfluous information.The All-in-One Exam Guide does not contain everything you need to know for the test, though. I haven't seen any study guide that does. Be sure to consult a variety of study materials.
