Title: Adobe Photoshop CS Down & Dirty Tricks
Publisher: New Riders Press
Authors: Scott Kelby
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

I am a huge fan of Scott Kelby, he and his creative director Felix Nelson is the one to listen to as far as learning Photoshop goes.
I went to the L.A. show and Scott was amazing
He puts his heart and soul into teaching this amazing program like no one else.
This book is just incredible, all brand new tutorials on the hottest most popular techniques out there.
I hesitated in learning Photoshop due to its somewhat difficult learning curve. But when I went to a local bookstore and flipped thru PhotoShop User Magazine, I new this program had the right teacher and mentor to show me.
Thank you Scott Kelby and Staff, you guys enrich my creative lifestyle with your knowledge and love for this amazing software.

Just barely enough for me

This is great simulator, works great, feels like the real thing. Does everything I need it to do to take the test. The only problem or really just an irritant was that the hands on lab in the 4th edition Lamle CCNA book don't quite match up to the Platinum Lab simulator.
I think they could of done a better job of describing the layout of the lab a little better, (basically none) maybe have a pictured layout of port connection with the available hardware in the lab simulator pages. I noticed quickly that the hands on lab in the book don't match head to head w/ the sim.. I figured it out, yes, It works? Yes. But when the book talks about switch(a) as a 2950 and the lab talks about the same devise as a 1900, its kind of thoughs you off because the commands are so different..
I found that if you save your work between Labs its much, much easier.. I don't know.. maybe it was planned like that to make me dig into it.. I did and I was able to make it work just fine..

Not what I expected, but still an excellent text

I was expecting an in-depth coverage of all the built-in Ant tasks (e.g., javac) as well as the fine points of filesets, patternsets, etc. I was disappointed to find that this text doesn't cover these in much more detail than the standard Ant documentation. However, its coverage of using Ant with JUnit, CVS and ftp has been tremendously helpful in my current project, and I've referred to it many times since receiving it.
