Good addition to the library

If you've worked through Dreamweaver MX2004 from the Source, and have purchased Studio MX2004, this is an excellent introduction to begin learning how best to make use of each product and make them work together. I wouldn't recommend it if you are a beginner to Dreamweaver, however.

Title: Fundamentals of Database Systems, Fourth Edition
Publisher: Addison Wesley
Authors: Ramez Elmasri, Shamkant B. Navathe
Rating: 1/5
Customer opinion - 1 stars out of 5

This book has just the right mix of database theory and its practical applications. I've studied other books of the ilk and found that this book has a leg up on them in that it doesn't get too hung up on providing proofs for concepts that are either very intuitive or just not worth going into too detailed a proof for. It also provides a good review of "modern" database techniques like Object Oriented database, deductive databases, etc.
The book could use a little more polish in terms of grammatical correctness. Besides, in my opinion, some concepts, as explained in the book, are just plain wrong. There is no way for one to contact the authors for clarification either.

A Must-Buy for Dummies

This book is fantastic. I read this book with no knowledge whatsoever of HTML or web design, and am now a web hotshot who's been hired to design several pages and even opened my own site to help teach others about the web. The real meat of this book is in Chapter 5, where all the tags are presented along with all of their attributes, properties, and what exactly they do. The enclosed CD is a sheer boon, providing powerful tools and more examples than you could shake a stick at. I highly recommend it.

The Bible of EJB 2.0

I red many other books but I realized that the coverage of this book is more deeper than the others. I am still working in HP SSO department and I am a Technical Consultant there and I will suggest this book to everyone who will learn J2EE technology.
The book starts with an uderstandable example. And it is not dependent to any comercial Middleware.
