Excellent book for PC/Client-Server software testing!


Lately I have read a lot of computer books. I have been in the software development business only about two and a half years. This is the best and most useful book I have read. I have tested, and am testing, software. This book is perfect for any tester or manager of testers. The authors are truly enlightned and experienced and best of all, they transmit their experience and knowledge to the reader in a most organized, logical and concise manner. A "must" for anyone involved in testing in any way.

Best Digital Photography Book I've Seen


This is a real photography book! I've purchased eight or nine "digital photography" books before and most of them emphasized the digital aspect more than photography. They seem to have been written by Photoshop gurus who know a lot about image editing and very little about honest-to-gosh photography.
This book is big enough and thick enough to deal with all the topics I wanted to read about. There's the usual material about how digital cameras work, and some helpful chapters on image editing, but the most useful parts are the photography chapters in the middle. These chapters seem to have been written by an actual professional photographer with tons of experience with digital cameras. There are tips about lighting, posing, shooting close-ups, and taking pictures for publication.
Everything is written with the special needs of digital cameras in mind. For example, I've had problems shooting sports photos because of the noticeable lag between the time that I press the shutter button and when my digital camera finally takes the photo. The author addresses this problem, along with many other digital camera peculiarities, such as the noise problems you get when you use higher ISO ratings to increase sensor sensitivity.
Even though some of the advice is fairly technical in nature, the author never resorts to jargon. Everything is explained quite clearly in terms that even a beginner can understand. I never really understood why selective focus was so difficult to achieve with a digital camera until I read the explanation here.
I recommend this book for all photographers, from beginner to advanced. The neophyte can learn how to vastly improve their skills, and even veteran photo hobbyists will learn something.

This book has all the basics covered.


I have purchased more than ten books on Visual Basic programming in the last few years. This inexpensive, 1,000 page guide is the best, most concise guide for beginning programmers that I have seen. For the price, you'd be crazy to pass this up.
