The Gold Standard of EJB!

If you can only afford one book buy this one! This is the best encapsulation of real-world experience available. I rate 'Enterprise Javabeans' by Richard Monson-Haefel a tad ahead for actually learning EJB because of the downloadable worksheets available for Weblogic 6.1, but this is the book I use regularly.
While you are at it have a look at Marinescu's EJB Patterns book, which began as a chapter in this one but grew large enough to become a book in it's own right..

Great Book for New Linux Users

I've been looking to try out Linux for years. Most Linux books talk about servers and commands. This book gets right to the things that real people want to do. I loved that the chapters were organized by stuff like Getting Email, Browsing Online, Playing Music, etc. It makes it easy to turn to right what I need to know.

The introductions to the chapters are funny and the book never really gets dull. the author looks at the boring system parts like most of us would and helps get through it. I loved this book and am now running fedora core 3.

Review of the Complete Ref Access 2000

This book was useful as a quick reference for the things that are simple to do, that you may have just forgotten or did not know how to go about doing. But as far as getting to the more intermediate and advanced applications of Access, it left you with little help. The book highlighted many of the MOUS exam objectives that were suppose to be applied in each chapter, but the book lacked enough substantive examples to help the reader truly understand the concepts if they did not already have in-depth knowledge. The book oversimplified some of the more difficult tasks and overkilled the most basic fundamentals that are easily walked through by the wizards. The most annoying part of the book was the reference to other parts of the book for the answers to questions posed by the author. If a topic comes up,(like a how do you do this?) a reader wants to know how to solve the dilemma when the question is posed, not 20 chapters later. The author made too much of an attempt to section the book into defined topics and forgot that this is a relational database we are dealing with and so things should flow more smoothly. This book wasn't enough of a reference and therefore should only be relied upon for simplistic reading.
