BEG VB 6, (Beginning)
BEG VB 6, (Beginning)
von WRIGHT
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the Best Visual Basic Book on the Market, 31. März 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: BEG VB 6, (Beginning) (Taschenbuch)
I recommend this book for students who are learning Visual Basic for the first time. Each chapter has excellent technical informaion, lots of examples, and well thought out methology for learning Visual Basic. I feel the book gives the student a number of valuable concepts: understanding of the vb controls, usability of objects in an application, and understand of how to integrate an Visual Basic Application with an database. I recommend "Beginning Visual Basic" to all of my College Students.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Were having Fun, 9. Februar 2000
This is my fourth year using the SuperBible to teach OpenGL to University Students. Were having fun: colorcube, adventures of a marble, the animated hand, and numerous other projects. I lecture from the Opengl SuperBible second edition over a fifteen week course. I particular like the number of graphic illustrations combined with concepts. I can progressive build my students through the semister chapter by chapter. I recommend the second edition as valued OpenGL book.

The Inventor Mentor: Programming Object-Oriented 3D Graphics with Open Inventor, Release 2 (OpenGL)
von Josie Wernecke
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 48,10

4.0 von 5 Sternen I like the Book, 19. Oktober 1999
I've concluded that I like the Inventor Mentor Book. I've used the book to teach open inventor to Senior University students. I worked with students to demonstrate a comprehensive set of programs viewable at WSU Virtual Worlds. WSU Virtual Worlds illustrates a more comprehensive code explaination. If you have questions on concepts in the book, email me. Heres what we were able to accomplish: Cylinder in trackball with Examiner Widget, Orthographic Camera and explainations of Perspective Camera, Space station w/ Camera and Point Light, Space station w/ Copper Material, Space station w/ Text, Grids (callbacks to OpenGL Code), applying Texture maps, B-Spline, using the Elapsed-Time Engine, Two Time Counters, Keyboard Events (this was very challenging to learn), Sensors, Draggers, nurb surface figure (cool technology), Walking Figure, skeleton and nurb surface skin (the best subject of the book: node kits), Examiner Widget, Water Molecule with Draggers and Timer Sensors.


Perl 5 by Example, w. CD-ROM
Perl 5 by Example, w. CD-ROM
von David Medinets
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen After Careful Evaluation, I like this book., 18. Oktober 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Perl 5 by Example, w. CD-ROM (Taschenbuch)
I am a Professional Perl Programmer. My site is David Nishimoto's Perl Page. I've read the 'Perl by Example' book many times and find it to be one of the best written books for perl. I like the book because it takes the reader - concept by concept through the Perl Language. The large number of examples helps demonstrate how the language syntax behaves. My experience in teaching perl is that examples are very helpful in understanding syntax. Once a programmer understands the Perl Language, Perl Function modules can be created to insulate some of the complexity of the language. Perl's substitution, match, and translate grammers are explained very well in the book. I valued the explainations on user defined functions and built in functions. The 'Perl by Example' book finishes with a discussion of CGI and interface with the http server, also very valueable. The book keeps the reader enthused about learning Perl by building from simple concepts to more advanced concepts through the document. I feel comfortable in recommending this book as a valuable Perl resource.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Beginner OpenGL Programmers will like this book., 12. Oktober 1999
I've used the Opengl superbible to teach a computer graphics course, in the past. My conclusions are: beginner OpenGL programmers really like the examples and easy to understand applications of the many of the opengl functions. Game developers however will prefer the OpenGL Programming Guide. The WSU Virtual Worlds Student site has a theme called "3D space invaders" which received inspiration from the "battle zone game" in the Super Bible Book. Students were required to build a 3D game which allow movement of a camera, multiple control levels of a space ship, falling aliens, firing missiles, scores, and collision detection. The Super Bible more than adequately prepared students to meet the challenge of the project. Additionally, the Super Bible included source code examples for unix, microsoft compilers, and borland compilers. Email me if you need additional help in understanding concepts in the Super Bible, such as NURBS. The Opengl Programming Manual explains NURBS better. Two wish items: I wish the author would explain how to combine 3D Studio Max objects in OpenGL, and I wish the author would explain combining JPG texture maps onto surfaces.


Oracle 8 Data Warehousing (Oracle Press Series)
Oracle 8 Data Warehousing (Oracle Press Series)
von Michael J. Corey
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen I wanted a book with stronger OLAP Content., 30. August 1999
I order a steak not a hamburger! I immediately associated with the conceptual - high level portion - of the book which covered: building the data warehouse team, managing the data warehouse project, the data warehouse design (very important chapters outlining usage of the star schema), and implementation of the data mart. I found the first half of the book to make alot of sense. Having a Masters of Oracle DBA, I found the physical database chapters on (partitioning and tuning valuable). However, OLAP chapters seemed too sketchy. I would have preferred an in depth discussion of installing and running the Oracle Express Server (Multidimensional database) , integrating express objects with Visual Basic or Forms, and connecting Discoverer to the Multidimensional Database, as subject matter. I found the OLAP section discussing Oracle Discoverer to narrow. The chapters covering Oracle Discoverer administration significantly less through than the Oracle Tutorial Documentation. Here my questions to the author: What about building item hierarchies, creating cross-tables, or cross-table master detail reports, introduction to Discover filters, and security -> Oracle Book explaining Oracle Products. Bottom line, I think the author missed the boat by igoring the significance of multidimensional databases and how to interface with them using oracle products.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Get ready to rumble with Windows Nt Server, 3. April 1999
I currently work as an Oracle DBA using Windows Nt Server 4.0 as the operating system. Part of my job requires maintaining two Nt Server 4.0 machines and One standalone Server. I use the Standalone Server as an Internet Information Server with Front Page 98 clients, Back Office Products, and Visual Interdev development environments. The Windows Nt Servers are used to run Oracle Database in a client server environment. I used the Windows Nt Bible to set up a Primary Domain Control a Backup Domain Control, set up a client connect to a Network client, and activate the Windows Internet Server on the Standalone server. The key characteristics, I found appealing in the book was: the book was written with the idea, the reader wants to implement a Nt server immediately (cut the fluff). The second concept, I liked was each chapter provided concise descriptions that help the reader understand the Windows Nt Server Architecture, such as, network layers, network adapters, communication protocols, growing your network, and installing internet information server. The third concept, I like was the interesting stories relating to the authors experiences while working a Microsoft. The stories are just, cool! Bottom line, the book work for me, to get my job done. I believe the Window Nt Server book can help you get started using Windows Nt Server 4.0!

The Unemotional Investor: Simple System for Beating the Market: Simple Systems for Beating the Market (Motley Fool Books)
von Robert Sheard
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 15,49

5.0 von 5 Sternen Protect your assets - read the book! Bottom line., 15. Februar 1999
Growth and monetary security are well addressed in the 'Unemotional Investor'. I've collected a number of stocks based on the rank, earnings per share, and timeliness, as a result of reading the book-> the Money making mechanism. The other model addressed, in the book, is asset protection. Price verses Yield models. I've use the price verse yield model in the past, and have been pleased with the results. I like the book because it brings me back to the fundamentals of conservative investing. The real danger in personal investing is speculation. I like the book because it provides critical thinking methods about handling one's investments. I believe personal investment is a growing trend.

Inside 3D Studio Max 2 (MCP-Imprint New Riders)
von Steven D. Elliott
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen I like this book. Cool VRML 2.0 plugin!, 3. Dezember 1998
I've spent hours carefully reading through 'Inside 3D Max'. Here's what I like: 1) Great explainations of graphic concepts 2) Visual inserts of the graphic panels helps one understand how to use the tool and its features 3) The author provides project files for most the chapters. 4) The book focus heavily on creating geometry through meshing, lathe, extrusion, and lofting. 5) Outstanding explanations of texture maps. 6) The author goes beyond just the technical how-to but helps one use the tool in a creative manner. 7) I found the Inverse Kinematics chapter very helpful. 8) The demos are very entertaining.


T'Ai Chi Classics
T'Ai Chi Classics

  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 13,66

5.0 von 5 Sternen Buy Recommendation, 13. November 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: T'Ai Chi Classics (Taschenbuch)
I like Tai Chi Classics. What appealed to me immediately is the straight forward manner in which Master Liao explains chi, jing, li, and how concept relates to each other. I would not say the book was written to teach a student to mechanics of Tai Chi, but instead to be an overview of the essences of chi and jing in the Tai Chi movements. Therefore, one should already have a working knowledge of the Tai Chi Movements. The book perfects the application of the Jing in the Tai Chi movements. One of the most interest statements delivered in the book, states that a practitioner may feel chi but not jing. Meaning the practitioner of Tai Chi may go through the movements of Tai Chi without ever really understanding the full impact of the art. I feel the book focuses on how the practitioner can build Jing, and the author seems to translate this approach in to the Tai Chi Form in the latter portion of the book. Does one read the book to discover amazing stories of physical feats or rather does one read the book to improve understand of what internal energy really mean.
