5.0 von 5 Sternen ...or how the essence of man is immutable, 18. September 2000
Man has two components: his essence and his social/cultural context. What the author tries to convey is, no matter the surroundings, the nature of his thoughts are always the same. It is unescapable. Simply put, regardless of when and where, his substance remains unchanged.

French Today with Book (Berlitz Today)
von Berlitz Publishing Company
  Hörkassette

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very well elaborated, but does not make you think in french, 5. Juli 2000
This is an excellent book, especially for the beginner. It is richly illustrated, and there are a lot of situations and topics explained. But, personally, I think this kind of method helps you only to a certain extent. I prefer the books like Langenscheidt's French in 30 hours or French without Toil by Assimil, which make you think in the language, by means of repetition and extensive use of grammar structures and vocabulary, in humorous and interesting situation lessons. I was a little disappointed since I intended to improve my French and I though this one would be more advanced. All I managed to get was a brush-up on a few topics. It is a pity...


OCP Oracle 8 DBA, Network Administration (Exam Cram (Coriolis Books))

5.0 von 5 Sternen I am sorry I cannot rate it 6 stars, 5. Juli 2000
I am an IT consultant and Oracle DBA with 8 years of experience in high-end technology, working for a large international bank in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I have decided to become Oracle certified because it would certainly give me more visibility in my work. Now, I am an Oracle8 OCP DBA with an average score of 97% in the five exams of the Oracle8 DBA track.
I must admit it was very difficult at first to find out what the best way would be to prepare for the tests. It took me some time to understand that the exams are entirely based on the original Oracle course books and that the practice tests offered by Self Test Software are a superset of the real exams. Now I have a keen perception of what the whole process is all about. The real trick to get a 90+% score is to attend the Oracle classes and cram with the STS practice tests. However, this is a rather expensive way to study, since each course costs around US$ 1,000 and each practice test costs US$ 99, not to mention the exam price itself (US$ 125).
When I fist set off my study, I bought Mr. Jason Couchman's Oracle8 DBA Certification Guide by Oracle Press. Bad choice... It was completely out of synch with the real exam contents and had a lot of typos and gross conceptual errors. I do feel sorry for those people who were caught unawares buying the big red book. I wonder how Oracle signed off on it.
I also bought the 'Oracle 7 Exam Cram Tests 1 and 2' by Mr. Michael Ault and 'Oracle 7 Exam Cram Tests 3 and 4' by Mr. Ault and others. They were both better than Mr. Couchman's, but a bit confusing, especially because they mixed two tests in each book. Besides, they did not cover Oracle8.
As a last resort, I borrowed the original course materials from an acquaintance, with the exception of the Network Administration book. I read the reviews on Mrs. Pascavage's 'Oracle8: Network Administration', and decided to order it from Amazon.
I was surprised. This book is really great ! It was evident that the author was careful to study the original oracle course material and practice test, giving priceless tips and accurately separating the chapters according to those of the course books and the exams sections. Also, the questions in the book are very close to the real ones one would encounter. Congratulations, Mrs. Pascavage !

5.0 von 5 Sternen A unique snapshot of a unique moment, 25. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Portraits (Photography) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
It is astonishing how Mr. McCurry manages to capture the unique moment when a simple snapshot of a face conveys the emotions, and the cultural and social context surrounding it. It is the magic of knowing when this exact moment is that makes the artist so great and his work so brilliant.


OCP Oracle 8 DBA, Database Adminsitration: Database Administration Exam Cram (Oracle Certified Professional (Coriolis))
OCP Oracle 8 DBA, Database Adminsitration: Database Administration Exam Cram (Oracle Certified Professional (Coriolis))
von Paul Collins
  Taschenbuch

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good book, but fails to give a broad coverage, 23. Juni 2000
I am an Oracle8 OCP DBA with an average score of 97% and over 8 years of IT experience. This book tries to cover a very extensive subject and fails to accomplish its task. There are many topics from the original Oracle OCP classes missing, and some others misplaced. Also, the chapters do not match those of the course book nor the exam sections.
However, the practice questions are very close to the real ones, and that is the main reason I would buy this book. On the whole, it is a good piece of work - far better than the previous Oracle7 Exam Cram books - but do not expect to get a broad understanding of Oracle administration.
Please read my other reviews to have my opinion on other preparation materials.


Oracle Database Administration: The Essential Reference (Classique Us)
Oracle Database Administration: The Essential Reference (Classique Us)
von David C Kreines
  Taschenbuch
Preis: EUR 32,00

4.0 von 5 Sternen A very useful reference book. Keep it to hand !, 23. Juni 2000
This book serves it purpose very well. As the title says, it is an essential reference, and that is exactly what I use it for.
As some other reviewers point out, there is a lot of copy-and-paste work in it. But I think that is not a problem.
In fact, very often it is much practical than navigating the bulk of on-line books, when you have to wait for the browser to load, search for a word or topic, or even when there's no computer at hand. Not to mention I can carry it around in my bag when necessary.
I especially would like to emphasize the coverage of SQL commands, init.ora parameters, data dictionary views and utilities.
Although I agree there are some inconsistent topics in this book and some mistakes as well, I think the people who complain about it either expected something very different or did not understand how useful it can be.


Oracle Database Administration on UNIX Systems with CDROM
Oracle Database Administration on UNIX Systems with CDROM
von Lynnwood Brown
  Taschenbuch

2.0 von 5 Sternen Very introductory and lacks consistency, 23. Juni 2000
This book tries to be ambitious and all it accomplishes is to convey scattered, imprecise and shallow information to the beginner. There may be a few handy topics, but it is all there is. It lacks consistency. The CD-ROM contents are ridiculous. If the reader is interested in learning Oracle and UNIX, I would suggest buying specific books on both products, or even attending some courses.


Oracle 8 & Unix Performance Tuning 2Ed (Prentice Hall (engl. Titel))
Oracle 8 & Unix Performance Tuning 2Ed (Prentice Hall (engl. Titel))
von Ahmed Alomari
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Broad coverage, still objective. Excellent !, 23. Juni 2000
Mr. Alomari managed to accomplish an extraordinary feat: presenting Oracle tuning in a concise, yet not superficial way. There are many originally undocumented (or poorly documented) features which are invaluable. A few topics, however, miss some explanation. But, all things considered, it is an excellent book. He addresses many issues that are really hard to find, especially on the interaction between UNIX and Oracle. When he says you cannot fix half of you car's engine, he is not exaggerating. In my consulting practice, I tend to see both many Oracle and many UNIX experts, but much work is poorly done because of this fragile knowledge by the two parties. This book may be an efficient tool for breaking that wall, and, believe me, it makes the difference. I only wonder why he did not cover other UNIXes like AIX and DIGITAL, which have a big market share...
