Very Strong Book

This is not only the best book to prepare for Java Certification, but it obviously is one of the best guides to master Java. The comprehensive and in-depth coverage of the language makes it invaluable as a manual and as a guide for practical programming. It covers virtually all essential aspects of the Java language. The book is targeted toward skilled programmers who already know Java and want to master it. The material is presented in a very systematic, well-organized order, and, what is important, it is very easy to perceive. The examples and test questions are extremely helpful. The answers to all quizzes are accompanied by detailed explanations. Don't miss this book.

This book is clear and concise. Though the comparison between the Micro/Mini/Mainframes are a about 10 years out of date, the actual target material is right on. This book is organized in such a way as to be a powerful learning tool as well as a awesome reference. I couldn't have hoped for anything better.

A good way to learn the basics of SQL.

It should be AutoCad 2004 for intermediate users.

This book should be re-title "AutoCad 2004 for Intermediate Users", because it sure wasn't directed at beginners. I was very disappointed in the lack of content and the excessive number of errors. Doesn't anyone proof read anymore? This books makes the assumption that you have at least some sort of CAD knowledge and that you are also very familiar with drafting concepts. I found it difficult to read and very difficult to follow some basic concepts. This book doesn't seem to have a logical flow of ideas or concepts. There were some good tips scattered thoughout that would benefit the experienced Autocad user, who has just upgraded to AutoCad 2004.
