Out of Date, thus useless

The Network+ Exam was updated in February 2005. This book covers a lot of material that is now not on the exam, and also does not include any new material that was added. DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK if you plan on taking the exam!!

Alright could of been better

Much like others have said he spent far too much time on areas in which are less important atleast in my eyes

While this book gives you a basic understanding in VC++ I found that it spent far too much time in the commandline
programing (MC++) when you could teach from the start learning doing it via text boxes/lables which would condence alot of the
reading making it less balky. Over 1/3rd of the book was on MC++ commandline programming! This book was also intended for
college courses and answers to the questions are not answered for those of us learning on our own which is a real downside
and made me skip ALOT of the questions at the end of chapters.

This book doesn't get into real detail about data structors which is an important aspect of programming in general which made me disapointed..

As Jody Blau said:
"Also, I found that its style of giving a few pages of code, followed by a few pages of explaining the code, could have been used much more effectively. Often the "explanations" involved simply stating "what" they did and not "why". "
is So true.

All in all I feel this book is alright but I'm sure theres better out there.

Quick reference book & beginner's guide

This book works with all versions of SAS and I found it a useful reference. It explains to you how to enter and manipulate your datasets in SAS. Also brief description of PROCs and options with each PROC. Each topic is in a separate page and all contained in about 2 pages at the most. So do not expect so much details on these procedure but if you happened to forget a syntax line, grab this book's index and the reminder is there for you. I recommend it to all SAS users.

A Reference all right

This was quite a informative book, it gives you all the things you need to master frontpage 2000. I would just wish it could of gave a example part in the book. Instead of all tutorials, the example part for this book may happen in future editions, more than likely.
You are also given a CD with the book which includes software and a few example pages done with frontpage. But no reference to how they have done these pages. I'm no rookie or anything so it comes as common sense but not everyone figures things out the same. So wondering how to do these pages could be a problem for people. There are 361 pages in this book I feel this could of been cut down to 250.
But OVERALL good book with a vast range of information all about Frontpage. Will soon hopefully get you making great looking web pages. :)
