Nice Job Chris

Chris Sells and Justin Gehtland (VB.NET version) have done a nice job introducing us to WinForms development in .NET. I must admit, I have not read the entire book. I purchased the book mainly for it's discussion on No Touch Deployment, Data Validation and Data Binding.

The book taught me quite a bit on NTD and has saved me a lot of headaches and research time. In addition, Chris's tips on NTD performance defintely increased the performance of our application.

This book is a definite read for someone new to WinForms development, or for someone whose been working with it for a while and needs a reference. I find myself turning to the book at least 1-2x a week.

Where's the Beef?

I am an OCP and wanted this book to improve upon my PL/SQL skills. I'd say 2/3 of this book is basic SQL for beginners. I already know most of that part so I was kind of disappointed. I guess when I saw the title of the book "Oracle PL/SQL 101" I thought it was for people who wanted to learn the basics of procedures and packages. The last third of the book is devoted to PL/SQL and is a good overview and a good first step, but it is too condensed and only touches on the basics. If you are a beginner studying for your PL/SQL OCP test (which didn't include a lot of PL/SQL at least when I took it) this book may be worth a read. If you are looking to actually do something useful with PL/SQL another book may be for you.
