An execllent book


I know ASP and Java. I was just wondering what Servlet and JSP look like. But once I got this book, I found I could not keep it away from me. I am greatly attracted by author's clear and knowledgeble explaination and those good examples. In addition, you probably can get quick and concise answer from author once you get a problem, since it happened to me!

Not so bad as what others had said


I was so worried when I was deciding whether I should buy this guide, but I glad I did. It wasnt so bad as most people had said. I would make a comment on those people would said this is not an accurate book. IT IS AN ACCURATE BOOK!

What most people failed to do is read the completion guide at the front and at the back. My brother just read the front and ignore the completion guide list at the back, and he didnt completed 100% On the other hand, I had completed 100%, first time, no help from online (some online strategy were useless), with this guide. So i didnt know why many didnt benefit from this guide.

However, I need to admit some stuff that this guide lacks.
1. You need to flip front and back to check the requirement for 100% completion. Example, the front did mention rest in every chapter while the back forgot to mention it in first chapter.
2. the completion percentage was not correct towards the end but if you follow all instruction, believe me FFX2 are not that unmerciful. You will be able to get 100% the first time you played. I did!
3. Some people complain that the guide didnt tell you where to get the item, come on, that's not true. All the while, they tell you what would you get and where were they. only those miniscular items were left out.
4. Ommission issue, yes, this guide did not have a good strategy on the Via infinito bosses and chocobo dungeon. You have to get the dungeon map online and also how to fight the strong bosses such as paragon, trauma and chac. However, the online strategy, to me, are not as effective as they claimed would be. I figure out simpler way to deal with them myself based on analysis and investigation.

So to sum it up. If you dont have the money to buy the more expensive original guide, and you want 100% completion, you should buy this. It helps and if you are careful, you will get 100% completion. I was a good example. Thanks.

a MUST for software people


This is a very well written book about fundamentals of OOP. Worths 10x the money and the effort of reading (1300 pages !) and should be read by anyone who is involved with software development / maintenance.
