Recommended Read

This was a great book. He took a potentially boring/dull topic and made it an interesting read. My roommates couldn't believe that I was laughing while I read it! Before I read this, I couldn't have a competent conversation with other people who know how to do a site. Now that I understand what I need, I can't wait to get started redoing our websites.

Great HTML Book For Computer or WebTV

This book is written with the computer in mind but I found it great for making webpages with my WebTV. Some applications I couldn't use because the directions were for Windows but it still gave enough information to learn HTML and make my Web site with it's many web pages. I enjoyed learning to make anchors the most, they are links that jump to another area of the webpage or website. The directions are great and easy to understand, you will be happy with this one.

Dragon Book == Compiler Bible, advice to compiler newbies

I'm a graduate student doing PhD work in compilers and this is the first book we make new students read. It is an exhaustive compendium of all the basics with particular emphasis on front end stuff like parsing, and lexing. While these are primarily automated processes these days, this foundation is crucial to build the rest of your knowledge on. My advice, buy this book and read it fully to lay a foundation. Then get Steven Muchnick's book to bring yourself up to the bleeding edge. Muchnick is more practical minded, but read this first. Like the other reviews, i can't say enough about the quality of this book.

Several errors...

I've found more than a few errors in this book, e.g. wrong port numbers, decimal dot placement, wrong answers to the test questions and the ordinary typo's. I'm also not too fond of the general layout and items get repeated quite a lot. I studied it thoroughly and failed the exam by 8 points. Some questions in the Security+ exam where definitely NOT covered in this book. I'll try again but with another book, one that is recommended by CompTIA.
