PMP: Project Management Professional Study Guide

I do not reccommend this Study Guide, primarily because the editting of it was very sloppy. There are misspelled words "Manger" for "Manager" throughout the book. Also, be wary of the CD that is included. It contains all of the materials and several bonus tests/exams, etc. However, many of the questions/answers are incorrect.

I reviewed/studied the physical book first and then did a second pass through the CD. I discovered several questions/answers that were incorrect. Very sloppy editting!!!

I would strongly reccommend that you purchase a different Study Guide for the PMP Exam.

This is no "Applied Cryptography".

Devoid of useful information. Most of the book is devoted to a pathetic angst-ridden grappling with the idea that there is no perfect security. Well, duh. Get over it Bruce. Tell us something we don't know. The only points of light are the antedotes and the idea that risk can be a business opportunity, by managing it well.

Great introduction to EJB

I am very new to EJB, and I have found this book to be an excellent introduction to the subject. The examples were clear, and the text was very readable. I highly reccomend this book to others that seek to understand EJB architecture.

MUST HAVE! Best tips/tricks for command line use in NT

Mr. Hill has finally documented what IT types need, a comprehensive (if there is more, I probably don't need it) guide to using the command line in Windows NT. This is a MUST HAVE for anyone who wants, needs or just likes to use the command line to automate tasks. It shows that MS did not forget about DOS and have spent time enhancing it for NT.
Thank you VERY MUCH, Mr. Hill, for your in-depth coverage. I've put this book to good use on many ocassions and will expect to do so again. I also bought copies for my integration engineers for when we deployed NT apps.
If you use NT more than just casually, DO NOT PASS ON THIS BOOK! A must have for your library.
