Title: Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid
Publisher: Basic Books
Authors: Douglas R. Hofstadter
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A Book that belongs in an Atheist's Bible...

... but I am not sure if it would lie in the Pentateuch, the Late Prophets or the Gospels.
Somewhere important, anyway. It attempts to answer the Q: If there is no God then how does this thing that I think I am do these things that I think I am doing?
This book was an early answer, dwells on important basics (art, language, mathematics, logic) not ephemeral specifics, and blew my mind when I read it 20 years ago.
It has not (yet) gone stale. Try and explain it to your children while the drones flock to churches and sports arenas on Sundays.
If you can, if you dare.

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

I wouldn't have graduated college without O'Reilly. I wouldn't have gotten my last job without this reference.
Not the best study text, but as always an authoritative, unbiased reference with loads of clear and useful cross-platform info.

Title: The PMP Exam: How to Pass on Your First Try
Publisher: Velociteach Press
Authors: Andy Crowe
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Worked for me!

I passed the PMP using this book and the PMBOK as my only reference materials. I found this book presented the material in a more organized and accessible fashion than PMBOK. This book not only helped me pass the PMP on the first try, it also helped me understand Project Management better. Very highly recommended.

You want it? It's in here.

At over 1700 pages, the Resource Kit contains all you need to know about Windows 2000 Professional and then some.
The Resource Kits have a good side and a bad side. The good side is that they're excellent research books and go much further in depth any other similar books. The bad side is that they are very tough to read cover to cover. We would recommend to purchase the Resource Kits to have access to this in-depth material. However, your initial Windows 2000 reading should probably come from a shorter, more concise book.
Many people will start the Windows 2000 MCSE track with the Windows 2000 Professional Exam (Exam 70-215). A great approach to studying would be to pick up both the Windows 2000 Professional Training Kit and the Resource Kit. Read the Training Kit to prepare and use the Resource Kit to go deeper in an area if you're confused or curious. This should definitely give you enough knowledge to pass the exam.
