Title: C++ How to Program (4th Edition)

Authors: Harvey M. Deitel, Paul J. Deitel

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
a good reference

c++ how to program 4th edition is one of the best c++ books i've read. Im only 14, and I read nearly half of it already without running in to, too many problems. Hell it blows the c++ book from dummies corp., the worse book i ever read, I forgot to mention that i had no programming experience ever, this was my first book, a good one at that. You may be disapointed because theres 1500p. but the more pages there is,the more of a reference you have. by the way if you have the internet and havent tought about searching for c++ books in the document tab of kazaa, do so, the more references you have the better. Essentialy this book is for intermidiate level but like i said im 14,no programming experience, and i had very slightly difficulty reading this book, had to experiment to figure out things but hay we all do that sometimes. overall awsome book. dont listen to that bad bullsheat of other reviews cause it is bullsheat. This book is primo.

Title: Concurrent Programming in Java(TM): Design Principles and Pattern (2nd Edition)
Publisher: Addison-Wesley Professional
Authors: Doug Lea
Rating: 1/5
Customer opinion - 1 stars out of 5
Awful! Save your money.

The author provides no insight into how Java concurrency actually works, or how to best exploit it. His style is full of obfuscation and needlessly difficult to read. Just as K&R's C is known commonly as "the white book," Lea's "Concurrent Programming in Java" is known around here as "the badly written book." Skip it.

Title: Sams Teach Yourself ABAP/4 in 21 Days
Publisher: Sams
Authors: Ken Greenwood
Rating: 3/5
Customer opinion - 3 stars out of 5
A Very Good Book for starters...

Greenwood's done a great job of getting me started in ABAP/4. I went through the material from cover-to-cover, and don't regret the time spent. However, I feel the book suffered a bit from the strictures of the "21-Days" format. I think I detect some severe editing in later chapters; chapters where I needed the same thorough treatment as in the earlier data dictionary material. This is a good one to start with, but plan on buying more books. In particular, don't look for any mention of SAPscript or dialog programming here, and don't try to use it as a language reference. Caveats notwithstanding, I'll recommend it to the next rookie.
