Another Great Access Book

This is the first book I bought for Access 2002 and it looks like the only one I will need it contains in depth of every area of access that I know exists. It has great chapters on the new data access pages, writing SQL Server Applications and XML. I especially liked the well organized and continuous example used throughout the book. The CD contains incredible demos for all sorts of 3rd party products and even some free comercial products. I thoroghly recommend this book for any level access user or developer

Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

Prof.Andrew is one of the best programmers/authors I have ever seen. This is the most useful book for any intermediate programmer with some previous exp. with VB or C++. I read that book 18 months ago (maybe more) and i can say that it was one of the reasons for my high-level in programming now. Get this book."Mr.Andrew thanks for everything".Michael YoussefMicrosoft.NET Architect/Trainer

Great MySQL reference with quality tutorials/examples

This book answers a lot of questions left out by other MySQL books. If you are new at this, take the time and download the samp. databases and work through the examples. The PHP section is also very informative and helpful.
MySQL + PHP + Apache + Linux = a combination that is very hard to beat! Learn it, love it, live it.

There are better books

This book will teach you C++. It will teach you OOP. But it will not teach you how to write good software. A programmer's job is the creation of bug-free software, and C++ is a very important tool in his hand. Before one can start writing code, one must know the ins and outs of C++. Never WHY. You are never taken "under the hood" of C++. And as for looking at the big picture of software development...it fails in that department too.There are other shortcomings as well: It teaches you procedural programming before OOP (like a lot of other books). This will do nothing except give you bad habits. I am unfortunate that this book was my first exposure to C++. I wish I had discovered "Thinking in C++" by Bruce Eckel. It is the best book on C++ I have encountered yet. What's more, Eckel distributes the book for FREE on his site.
