Title: 3D Math Primer for Graphics and Game Development
Publisher: Wordware Publishing, Inc.
Authors: Fletcher Dunn
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Very well written, graceful transition to 3D math.


This is one of the best books that I have read for 3d math. It thouroughly explains math concepts in geometry trig and coding. At first I was skeptical with this book because most books take for granted that you know math concepts but this one explains it in detail.
I hope Fletch and Ian keep teaching young padawan learners of gaming like myself by making more books like this.
This book is a GEM and a must have!!

Will change the wake you develop software


When I first saw this in the bookstore, I didn't really know what to make of it. Intending only to glance quickly through it, I found myself immersed in the new and exciting world of design patterns.
The first 70 pages or so of the book take you through the creation of MS Word type of word processor showing you the patterns used to achieve its design. The rest of the book serves as a reference for the 24 design patterns, and includes small examples, as well consequences of each pattern.
If you have not yet studied design patterns, then I suggest you begin with this book. You can not survive in a true development environment without them.

MICROSOFT WORD 2000 (STEP BY STEP)


THIS IS THE BOOK FOR FIRST TIME OR BRUSH-UP USERS WHO WANT TO GET A LITTLE MORE SUBSTANCE OUT OF THEIR EFFORTS IN A REASONABLY SHORT TIME. A MEDIUM AMOUNT OF WORDINESS, CLEAR PRECISE PROCEDURAL GUIDING, AND CLEAR B&W SCREEN PRESENTATION. THOUGH COLOR WOULD HAVE BEEN EXTRA NICE.

Nothing Earth Shattering Here


I absolutely LOVED the Photoshop 7 version of this book, but found very little useful information in this newest book. The techniques in this one were not so different from those in the last book - just a different context for much of the same "tricks". I am a huge fan of Scott Kelby, however, I found myself quite disappointed in this book.
