Title: Complete Wireless Design
Publisher: McGraw-Hill Professional
Authors: Cotter W. Sayre
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
An eminently PRACTICAL design guide

This book covers a very wide area of wireless discrete circuit design (while using only straightforward algebraic equations). Anyone from an engineer to a ham would benefit greatly from the knowledge contained in this book. It covers the step-by-step design of the entire gammit of devices that would be required in any radio: amplifiiers, filters, transmission lines, oscillators, filters, mixers, PLLs, etc., along with the theory of their operation, as well as a relatively easy to follow section on the common communications systems that contain these types of circuits. I would definetly say that this book should be in every wireless designers library.

Title: Understanding SNMP MIBs

Worth the Money

I have read and reviewed most of these SNMP books. In general, they are not very good. This one is EXCELLENT. However, it is definitely for people developing mibs and not somebody looking to understand how SNMP works. It is a resource as an SNMP developer I could not live without.

Title: Programming the Perl DBI
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Alligator Descartes, Tim Bunce
Rating: 1/5
Customer opinion - 1 stars out of 5
There's virtually nothing in this book

This book is slim. About 1/3 is a DBI reference, which you can get free from the distribution. About 1/5 of the book (in the beginning), it describes Berkeley's dbm (and thus why DBI is necessary). So, what we have left is mere 130 pages to describe DBI features. The author uses these pages to explain only very simple things like: How to connect to the database, and execut very simple queries like "SELECT name FROM employee", get the result set, and so forth. The book never describes more complex real world problems, such as how you would execute stored procedures (for example, in Oracle, PL/SQL packages) get the result back through arguments, and other intricate problems. If you want to learn the very fundamentals of how to connect, execute, and get the results for very simple SQL queries, this book will help you. But then you can visit free web sites that offer such things. If you want to solve real world problems using DBI, this book offers NOTHING !

Very Good Reference

I learn to program in ASP using this book. You will find good information about related topics like http protocol and ADO (to access databases). I'm using this book everyday. But I found some errors in the ASP code in the book, and the book don't cover the ASP VbScript.
