Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5
GOOD at most bits BAD at some bits.

I thought it is aright book and a good reference book. The reason why I gave a low rating because in some parts it lost me. I didn't understand a bit in those parts which lost me. It had a tiny bit of humour and got boring at most times. There is also good think about and a bad thing about the book. I will tell the good thing, it tells you how to connect printers, modems and other hardware. If you are a beginner who knows ZIP about installing hardware and software this is the book. But on the other hand I knew how to install hardware and software so it got boring. There should be two types of book, the book which is released now and a new book only about DOS nothing else.

Title: Mastering Algorithms with C (Mastering)
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Kyle Loudon
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
good, concise algorithm book ruined by comment

compare to most algorithm/data structure books out there, this book is not as complete as those, but it's much easier to read, and diagrams in this book is well drawn and much eaiser to follow. Why would I only give it 3 stars? One thing really ruined this book - obviously the publisher/editor/author try to increase the total page number by putting ridiculously big comment block in sample code(single line comments takes about 5 lines, all surrounded by '*' and spaces) This made the sample code difficult to read, imagine a 5 line function has to be printed in 2 or 3 pages.

Small but Good Information

Nice book, stright to the point. Even though her audience is NOn graphic desingers, being a desinger I did pick up some tips. Before I designed this book, I made some really stu[pid errors.
Glad I don't anymore.

Title: Internetworking with TCP/IP Vol.1: Principles, Protocols, and Architecture (4th Edition)
Publisher: Prentice Hall
Authors: Douglas E. Comer
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Outstanding reference material!

The only reason I gave this book a nine was because that I have no other TCP/IP books to compare this one too. It is a technical reference/text book and as such is a bit dry. Do not let this stop you from buying it, however.
I am currently a network engineer, and without this book would probably be still working for low rate technical body shops. With the understanding of IP that this book has brought I have been able to further my career and increase my yearly salary.
If you are a computer/network technician, or are planning a career move in that direction, Comer's TCP/IP VOL. I, should be an essential part of your reference library!
