Tech made Easy

This is the review of the book released earlier in 2000. The authors are well versed with the ongoing tech trends as Nokia is the world's leader in developing WCDMA 3G equipments.

The first step...

I actually used this book many moons ago, but saw it on my shelf and thought id offer my thoughts. I remember when I wanted to get into VB a few years ago. Every book I got confused me even more. I thought I was stupid. I may be...but THIS book was able to get past that and give me a working knowledge of VB. Its first few examples will have you understanding properties, methods and events in their most basic forms. The book continues to do increasingly more complex examples. About halfway though the book, i pretty much felt comfortable going off on my own into more advanced topics. I refer to it every once in a while, but mostly, I gained the foundation I needed and havent needed it since. I would highly recommend this for the beginner who just doesnt know where to start. This book paired with the Visual Basic Black book from Coriolis will have you doing everything short of API calls in a couple of weeks. Happy coding. One word of advice... Be cautious with the Step by Step books from MS press. Halvorson did an excellent job with this one, but other Authors have failed miserably at other topics in the same line.

Good Resource

I purchased this book to learn a little more about CSS. I use it more as a reference book than anything but it has been very helpful in my learning process.

Well organized and thorough intro plagued with errors

This is a very good introduction to XML. The author provides good background explanations for the topics that need it and uses many good analogies and examples. Unfortunately there are many errors. Some of them are serious and obscure enough to confuse the intended audience. Do your self a favor - buy this book then visit the errata page listed in the preface. Make sure to read both the confirmed and unconfirmed pages. The editors need to be taken outside and pelted with donuts.
