NOT for the novice......

First off, this book doesn't cover the 2001 objectives, so it's technically obsolete. The Core portion hasn't changed much, so it's still useful in that regard. This book was >okay< if you're already familiar with most of the content. Had a number of typos in both the book, and CD test questions. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone other than a PC "Wiz" to use to get a feel for the exam. A novice won't learn anything here. The best part of the book is the test CD. I used Marcrafts' book, and also a Coriolis book as my main study guides. The questions on the CD came in handy.

Well written, but poor accompanying CD

I found this book well written, with an engaging style for what can be a very dull subject. Not exactly what I was looking for, but I was able to glean enough nuggets to gain some benefit.
Very disappointed in the accompanying CD. Ad hoc samples appear to have been thrown together at the last minute. Simple things like a lack of data (1 record per sample database), poor data models, incorrectly documented comments and a lousy UI. Individual samples existed in a vacuum and did not tie together into a coherent whole. I would have held this book in higher regard if no CD had been included.
It would appear that Rex Black did not practise what he preaches in this case - not a good look for a testing / QA publication.

All the other reviews are right on! This book rocks!

I'm only 13 and I'd never programmed before in my life! My dad got me this book to help me learn C and it's the best book ever. He has a lot of C manuals, but this book is waaay better than any of 'em. Believe me. I know.
