Title: Modern Operating Systems (2nd Edition)
Publisher: Prentice Hall
Authors: Andrew Tanenbaum
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
In-depth and up-to-date

This book offers a thorough description of latest operating systems (Windows 2000 and Unix) and general concepts. At times it may be difficult for non-specialists (I am a biologist), but if you have a good dictionary of computer terms, it's not a problem. Depth and coverage of up-to-date material more than compensate for that.

Title: C++ Pointers and Dynamic Memory Management
Publisher: Wiley
Authors: Michael C. Daconta
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Remove thy veil and immerse yourself in the land of pointers

Pointers are by far the most important, and most difficult aspects of C/C++. Most books, however, gloss over the subject and leave the reader desiring more. Daconta understood this and addressed many of the questions in this book.
You'll get a bet understanding of the benefits and consequences of passing by reference vs. passing by value, and vis-a-vis.
Now for the gripe: This book is slightly dated, and is really just a C++ version of his original C book. Therefore, you're going to find some questionable code here and there.

O.o A Customer from Rossville, GA United States comments

Not sure what guide your friend is using but there is nothing to any of these references in my guide. Would never have gotten half the quests I have completed done without it. It's an awesome guide and the summoner guide was very helpful telling you how to get the ruby, what weather is needed and listing in a table the 13+ areas to get them all. The guide on the WAR btw says that WAR/WHM is useful for SOLOING not partying. And the only reference I could find on the Jeuno/Choco thing was that when you reach 20 you can head to Jeuno for your Chocobo license.
