Awesome Robot Book


I found David Cook's book to one of the best robot books out there for 3 reasons. First, David teaches you electronics as you go through the book; and you don't even realize that your learning electronics your just thinking, "I want to know this to build a cool robot." Second, unlike most other robot books, this one is for the beginner and takes the builder all the way through the completion of a single project--a line following robot. Finally, David Cook maintains a website that provides updates to his book and useful links for even more robot building resources. I strongly feel that this shows the author's dedication to encouraging novice robot builders to continue building robots.

Very good study guide.


I used this book, in conjunction with Network + for Dummies. I did very well on the exam. I think this book alone would have been enough. Hard to say for sure. If you're serious, and can afford it, you should always have another book to compliment your studies. The CD contained a great engine for targeting questions by topic. Besides having the typical practice test, it also had every chapter quiz question (from the book) on it. The entire book is also contained on the cd. VERY nice features. The CD did have a few minor glitches though. Drag and drop questions that scored wrong when they were correct, and not being able to use the "previous" feature in a practice test. It's sad to say, but after buying lots of study materials for A+ and Net+ I haven't found any that didn't have these kind of glitches.

For those who don't like the cover


I just bought this book and have already used it extensively. My coworker went out and bought it too. The book has great examples and a very comprehensive reference in the back. Visual Interdev's help for JScript is terrible, and this book is worth every penny!

Title: The Ultimate History of Video Games: From Pong to Pokemon--The Story Behind the Craze That Touched Our Lives and Changed the World

Everything you've always wanted to know about video games...


This is the kind of book that I have been waiting for. After reading Kent's last book "FIRST QUARTER" I felt that everything had been covered in the annals of video games...I was wrong. Starting at the birth of the pinball games and the people who bred life into them Kent takes us on a wild ride through memory lane that I did not want to end. I felt myself glued to this book pages after I wanted to put it down and anyone who thought that they knew everything about everything about video games will find themselves scratching their head learning something new [There is no knowledge that is not power] and inciteful about the genre. My hat off to Mr. Steve Kent for giving me a look back to the days when video games were king and quarters were the gateway to another world. If you are a video game addict or just look like one YOU WILL WANT TO READ THIS BOOK!
