Great books for the price


I think the books are very good. I am an MCSE currently upgrading my certifications. I dont know why some people are bashing these books, they are detailed, contain labs, practice questions and even a copy of server 2003 Enterprise. I am using these books in addition to Selftest exam sims. If you can find a better self-paced training kit for less I want to know about it.

great!


Great for the price! It covers a lot more of FrontPage 2003 than I would have thought. In fact eveything I've had a question about has been in the book and answered well. Highly recommended.

The Mac Bathroom Reader and SO MUCH MORE!


Apple Confidential takes a unique perspective of the apple story. While I agree with the fact that the author sometimes repeats himself, the well researched facts and interesting trivia more than make up for those few mistakes. Mr. Linzmayer, amazingly enough, is able to dig under the huge pile of myths surrounding the mac and apple and tell the story, as it was written. The author is particularly good at pointing out credit where it is due, a shortcoming in other Apple books. This is one not to miss

Microsoft Excel Inside Out Version 2002


The book is a rehash of the authors' 1999 publication "Running Microsoft Excel 2000." Both books have the same problem, i.e. a lack of comprehensive examples. Of the two, this book is only slightly better. Some of the examples appear to be extracted from the Help file rather than providing additional needed information.
Also, for someone learning or attempting to advance in Excel, neither of these books follow the [helpful] format of the rudimentary "Step by Step Microsoft" books that include, in the margins, pictures of the buttons. These give the relative novice potentially quick aid in navigating the system.
