Solid Foundation for Beginning ASP "A MUST HAVE"


This book is superbly written and is perfect for everyone who wants to get started with ASP. It's an excellent tutorial covering beginning ASP based web programming.
The book teaches you everything you need to know about ASP, SQL Server, COM/ActiveX objects, and stored procedures. This was a big plus for anyone new to ASP Programming because it allows on hands learning. The source code, and examples make every area very clear, and easy to learn, and build on. It also points out the reasons why one would want to use ASP technology to build their web based applications.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in gaining an understanding of ASP Development, and as a reference book to stay on your shelves. A definite buy!!!

Good content, haphazard presentation


The content of this book is definately top notch, however presentation of this material isn't ideal for a computer novice. Not to say its unreadable, but it leaves some gaps.

Best introduction to the concept of database design


I have corresponded with the author of this book, and he responded promptly and courteously. I'm happy I bought this book. It does not replace C. J. Date or E. F. Codd, but it is one of the best places for someone to start if they want to know about relational databases but don't have a grasp of why the relational model is so important. Why choose this book over another? Because the author is a great writer and explains terms clearly, and because the layout of the book is attractive and clear. Once finished with it, readers can move on to the nitty gritty of the relational model itself--this book is to help avoid mistakes while designing databases for actual use. But it's for someone who wants more substance than is available in the Dummies-type books (as strong as they are in addressing the concerns of their audience). If you're not a computer science major but want to learn about RDBMSs now, get this book.
