Don't let the title throw you off!


This book is jam packed with valuable exam-specific material. I think this book is great for a first review of the material as well as a last minute cram before the exam. I bought the Prep Guide too, but, so far, I've found the information here extremely compact, accurate, and digestible. By the way, the CD is a God-send-- in addition to the test engine, the authors included a very practical set of flash cards with at least 300 sample test questions and answers (supplied on separate cards) that you can print or even download to your PDA. This is just genius and alone worth the price of the book.

Title: Basics of Design: Layout and Typography for Beginners
Publisher: Thomson Delmar Learning
Authors: Lisa Graham
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Excellent for Beginners


Having wasted much time looking through a number of other books supposedly covering the same subject, this book is a welcome relief.
This book covers in adequate detail the essentials and the basic principles of design, including emphasis, contrast, balance, alignment, repetition, flow, the use of images, color, typography, etc. It gives enough explanation with examples for one to get a good grounding on the subject, without getting too technical, keeping the book highly readable. A part of the book also focuses on specific design situations, including logos, flyers, newsletters, resumes, etc.
Perfect for anyone with no formal training in design, but would like to improve his/her understanding of design.

Title: Java Programming for the Absolute Beginner
Publisher: Muska & Lipman/Premier-Trade
Authors: Joseph Russell
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Excellent for programmers with general knowledge


I bought this book and thought the programming projects in the book were awesome. All of the exercises are taught for use in game programming. While the author probably doesn't explain the language and fundamentals in depth (rather terse), he explains the fundamentals of how the games work. I've read Deitel's Java How To Program, and I recommend that to any Java beginners. If you want to learn how to program games in Java such as minesweeper, tetris, and others, get this book! It's awesome!

If you are starting from square one, this is the book!


Apart from the excruciating jokes on every other page, this is an excellent book for getting rapidly into the business of learning how to design web pages. It also brings home to you the miracle of the Internet and gives you an appetite to get right into it straight away. I comment it to anybody who knows very little and wants to get started on publishing a web page.
And perhaps even some of the jokes will make you smile - well maybe.
