A must have for serious practitioners

I was amazed to see some people dissing TAoCP. I came across these books 20 years ago when I was learning FORTRAN and Pascal. I did not understand much then but since then they have proved to be the best source for solving many sticky problems be it data structures oo sorting. It is true it uses MIX and does not cover the last 20 years of advances in computer science yet but if you cant understand MIX you have no hope of understanding the mathemtical analysis of algorithms in these books nor appreciate a quality book like this. If your intellectual curiosity extends beyond the O'Reilly cook books and you *love* programming, these books definitely belong in your library. A couple of hours of reading a section or two from these books is so stimulating!

Clear, well-written in a logical way

If you need an introductory book on JSP/Servlets that will explain those technologies in a clear, straight to the point way, this is the book. You will find interesting examples that you might use working on your JSP/Servlets applications. The book gives you a solid foundation that you can start digging into JSP/Servlets with better understanding on what is going on behind the scenes.I recommend this book very much based on my experience as a Java programmer and trainer teaching JSP/Servlets courses.

Good book for the beginning Webmaster

This book is extremely good for anyone who is intrested in becoming a webmaster! However, I do recommend you have a strong knowledge of HTML, and a little bit of knowledge on MS Access or MS Sql. You can still understand the book and learn alot from it if you don't already know these, but it gets kind of confusing when you're trying to learn 4 or 5 languages! The book teaches you everything you need to know about programming in ASP, it will also teach you VBScript.
Minimum requirements for this book: Windows 2000 Pro, MS Access and/or SQL 7.0+
Recommended requirements for this book: MS Interdev 6.0, SQL 7.0+
If you don't have ANY of the above, I would not recommend buying this book.
Bottom line: Great book, some typo's, knowledge of web environment recommended before purchase
