Fun learn

I found this book with its accompanying CD to be a killer combo. The exercises are fun,but thorough. I heartily recommend it to anyone who has gone through their previous book Creating Motion Graphics, and wants to learn more. I had trouble installing one of the free plugins included on the CD and emailed the authors-they responded the same day with the answer to what I was doing wrong!

Very Helpful for Passing the Exam

While I found the Web Applications book to be a better treatment of the exam material, this book was complete enough to play a significant role in my having passed the exam. The only other product I used was the Transcender practice exam. With the Web Applications book, I was passing the practice exam every time, starting with the first time, after finishing the book. With this book (Windows Applications), I did fail the practice exam a couple of times before I started passing. However, to be fair to the author, my wife did have a baby during the time I was studying, so maybe that distracted me a little... :)

Publisher: Bradygames
Authors: Tim Bogenn, Rick Barba
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5

Ignore loser boy's lame review of this item as he didn't even have the sack to buy it before reviewing it. Tim Bogenn and Rick Barba have put together the most comprehensive BradyGames guide to date. All the cheat codes in the world (or on the 'Net) won't show or take you to every nook and cranny of San Andreas like this 272 page official strategy guide (including a 5 page fold-out map) will. Enjoy the game but remember where to come for all the info to max out your gaming experience. Don't forget to lock your doors.

Title: LDAP System Administration
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Gerald Carter
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Excellent book on OpenLDAP

This book is probably the best book I have ever read on OpenLDAP implimentation. The title is somewhat misleading in that it does not go into LDAP in general, including deep history, heavy schema development, etc.
However, it covers the down and dirty of implimenting OpenLDAP in detail. It covers:
-detailed slapd.conf configuration-pam_ldap-nss specific and pam specific configuration parameters in ldap.conf-DNS implimentation with LDAP-conversion tools
This book is an excellent guide on actually putting LDAP to work, including design, configuration and implimentation.
This book is NOT designed for people looking to impliment other LDAP software (iPlanet, etc). This book does not cover in depth enterprise level roll-out, research, and user feedback.
But if you want a great book that covers configuration and usage of OpenLDAP and Linux..this IS the book for you.
