Title: Final Fantasy IX Official Strategy Guide
Publisher: Brady Games
Authors: Dan Birlew
Rating: 2/5
Customer opinion - 2 stars out of 5
This book is great...

Im overly dissapointed with this title. Sure all the other Brady Guides for previous Final Fantasy titles were flawed, but you could live with them. At least they had information in the book and not a constant referral to playonline.com. The entire format is presented like this for everything. Want more information ... refer to playonline.com. Want any information about anything? Refer to playonline.com. If im stuck I like to have the book in front of me and be able to read and follow along with my playing. I also like to have information about skills etc so I can plan an effective strategy for character advancement. Which brings us to another problem, the website itself is very hard to get on to. I managed to create a user id, but since then it just times out whenever i try to access the north american site. You know what? How about you save yourself some money and just refer to online faq's that you can print out.

Probably the best

Definately, outstanding book. I'm a Microsoft MVP on Windows and I think this book helped me a lot.
When you read some other Windows Server books, you may find boring. That's normal because technical books are not stories. But, learn windows server by reading this book will not feel boring. It's not only a great book on technical view, but also a very interesting book.
If you want to buy ONLY ONE windows server 2003 book, buy this one!

More than a good reference for practitioners

This book is a useful guide to those that want to learn about CDMA systems, as well as a reference to practitioners. It is well organized and not only it covers lot of ground, but it does so without sacrificing discussion of the details.
I found this book to be more than about summarizing the 1000s of pages of the cdma2000 specifications. It gives insight of the rationale behind protocol design and explains the trade-offs involved. System implementation details and algorithms are explained. The chapters on power control, handovers, and packet data operation are well written and very insightful. The chapter on the signaling layer has useful call flows and is an excellent reference. I found the last chapter on end-to-end network operations a bit unique and very useful. But I must say that this chapter could use some more details in the text describing the call flows.
If you need a reference book on cdma2000 or if you are new to this technology and need a guide book, this book is the best available in my opinion.
