If you believe all that hype....

There are many books devoted to Java programming, you name these. And most of them are good enough to teach you how to write in Java. You may consider that it is enough to learn the syntax and some advanced tricks. Wrong! There is more... Read this book, and you will find what it is - THINKING! Just excellent!

I have to agree... This is an excellent starter book

Yes! This book does exactly what it says. Teach you the fundamentals of VB .Net in 21 Chapters (... or Days if u want!)I am a junior/intermediate programmer with only a couple of languages under my belt and this my first "SAMS" book... It is worth every single penny you pay for it...I went thru all of the Chapters but you don't have to as the book is very well organized and can be used as a reference. I'd recommend it to anybody...

strings, vectors, lists, maps--finally!!

Ever since I started using Rogue Wave's Tools.h++ six years ago I have always wondered when Rogue Wave's style--which I find powerful in its simplicity--would enter into the C++ mainstream. Finally Andrew Koenig and Barbara Moo have produced a C++ book that I find so refreshing and encouraging in its unabashed use of string, vector, list, map objects the way I am used to doing using Tools.h++. Some people do not want to learn a separate library such as Tools.h++, and some projects at work do not allow the use of Tools.h++, so I'm glad that modern (i.e., 1998 standard) C++ allows designing in the general style of Tools.h++. It's high time that we use C++ not just as a better C but as a real OOP language in its own right! .... I love the new/1998 standard C++ design/programming style!!!
