BEG ASP DTBSE, (Programmer to Programmer)
BEG ASP DTBSE, (Programmer to Programmer)
von John Kauffman
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 39,43

5.0 von 5 Sternen Finally! A good learning book!, 25. Mai 2000
This book is WELL worth the money. Why? Because it teaches you ASP/ADO with examples, the results and then step by step explanation of how it works. I wish other books could be as good as this.
This is a book for people that understand the basics of programming (a little Basic/VB/VBscript is helpful) but not the finer details.
Definately worth the money, get it!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not bad, could be better, 25. Mai 2000
I've got a real problem with this traditional-computer science approach of learning all about variables and structure but nothing that you can actually use.
This book is better than the previous book I tried, but it still doesn't allow you to really practice the code to learn it (to me, the only way you can really learn). It starts out really good, but still spends too much time on variables and structure and not enough real world code. The cookbook (additional book) is helpful but the code is too complex to learn Javascript on your own.
Look, books don't seem to be doing a very good job. If you want to learn Javascript, goto Yahoo.com and search for Javascript tutorial. I've just tried a few, but in an hour or two I've learned 20x as much as trying to read the book.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Am I supposed to be learning Javascript?, 25. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: PRO JAVASCRIPT, (Wrox Us) (Taschenbuch)
I've got a real problem with this traditional-computer science approach of learning all about variables and structure but nothing that you can actually use.
I had to actually RETURN this book, because it was such a waste. Little examples or real code, make it only good in "theory" and not in practice. You can do MUCH better.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good but not Awesome, 27. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Timeline (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I REALLY liked the beginning part of the book and once it got into Crighton's theories of "Time Travel" I was thrilled at the realistic level of detail and accuracy that makes me wonder if this technology is at all possible!
I thought that the mid-evil scenes were okay... I was hoping for more Time theories and less old-type action. A major problem was (I tend to skim, or read quickly so I need a book that constantly reminds me who characters are and whats going on) that i got lost a bunch of times and didn't know what was going on...<sigh>, very frustrating. I enjoyed the other Crighton book, Sphere much better.
I WILL tell you this, though. I really admire all of his work and a glance at the sources cited page will show much research he puts into his books. I believed(and still do) all of his historical references and thought it was a nice touch.
Good, but not great. Worth reading if you like historical stuff...I'm more of a sci-fi fan myself.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Thick and ugly, 12. Januar 2000
This book was required for our DSS class. The material is impossibly thick and it can take hours to try to sort through the material.
Ok coverage, but you can do a heck of a lot better elsewhere
