Great Training Courses 11 May 2002
By Michelle B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I would highly recommend the training courses offered by the Deitels. So far, I have used the Java and Perl Training Courses and have found with both that the instruction was consistent and well planned. The examples were done well and the explanations provided in both the book and especially on the CD were easy to follow and understand. I think particularly listening to the CD explanations made working through the material go a lot faster, at least for me.
I believe that the Deitels have made every effort to make a product that truly is an effective learning tool. They also pleasantly surprised me by promptly answering any emails that I sent to them regarding questions I had about the material in the book.
I feel confident that because of the Deitels' products I have gained a solid foundation in both the Java and Perl programming languages. For any and all programming languages I plan to learn in the future, I will check first to see if there is a Deitel training course available and start my learning process there.

Beginning to Intermediate Programmers 30 July 2001
By Dan George - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book does breaks some ground on programming with Perl. Ive learned alot from this book and Ive been using Pascal for quite some time. I would say that those of you that want some quick answers from a book that is written in a way for you to get going with Perl than this is the book. Yet it probably would put some advanced users to sleep but than the title acks that. I gave it a four because it uses too many expluratives.
