Not good enough

I spent about one month almost every night preparing for the exam by only reading this book. Unfortunatly I failed the exam. There are a lot of topics just not explained clearly by the book, although the subjects are all covered. And if you want to pass the exam with a safe margin, you need to understand completely all the topics. With just this book, it can be difficult. I havn't read other exam prep books. But I think having a second book might be necessary. But overall, this book is probably better than others, and can be used as a base.

Best combination of JSP & Servlet reference, November 30, 2000
Reviewer:Radu Bengulescu (Tokyo, Japan) - See all my reviews
It's quite difficult to find a good book about servlets. Even more difficult when it comes to JSPs. This book covers both topics in an extremely practical and logical way. It gives solutions to real-world problems and many of the code samples can be used for your own application development. One of the strong points of this book is explaining the implications of various HTTP rechniques that can be used in combination to servlet programming. Tunelling is of extremely importance in overcoming the limitations of the firewalls. Overall I consider the best book for both newcomer/advanced JSP/Servlet programmer.

Title: New Perspectives on Creating Web Pages with HTML Third Edition - Comprehensive
Publisher: Course Technology
Authors: Patrick Carey

Great for self-teaching

When I took an Internet class in HTML web design through the local community college, this is the book that was used. I already had some basic HTML knowledge and was looking to expand it. I got a lot of useful information from this book, and use it as a reference guide to this day. I liked the emphasis on Netscape as browser of choice (chances are, if it looks good in Netscape it'll look good in IE) and the way they taught tables by measuring in percentages rather than counting pixels -- this "liquid table" approach will make your page look good on smaller, older monitors. Even though I am dead set against using frames on any of my pages, it was interesting to learn how to make them. Particularly intriguing was the chapter on how to create javascripts -- even though I never quite got the darn things to work, I go back and tussle with it now and again.
This book does have some errors in it, which have been pointed out by other reviewers. Filenames really should be all lower case (and try to keep it to 8 characters, 3-character extension if you can). In the hypothetical where you're using various kinds of tables to create an announcement about a meditation seminar, I found no way to get it to look exactly like the example using the code they said to use -- I had to add a couple of extra paragraph tags here and there. Things like that are a bit offputting, but I definitely recommend this book for beginners and people who are intimidated by the thought of handcoding. Along with the HTML Primer at ...,it remains if not my Bible, at least my Guideposts.

This is the book for SQL Developers/DBAs

I have about $2000 worth of the book on asp.net, cfml, Microsoft SQL server, Oracle DB book, and other tech related books. Most of the books I had are poorly written and the authors are trying to make "quick buck". This book is very well written and in-depth of Microsoft SQL Server. Highly recommanded!
