5.0 out of 5 stars a good reference book beyond the exam 3 Nov 2003
I found this book exceedingly useful. It is incredibly thorough, as are all the titles that I have read in the series.
The exercises and the tests were a useful alternative to the online tests available. Unless you have broadband of cheap/free access then these will serve instead of the online tests.
Tests and lab materials are available through the accompanying CD.
Not cheap at 35+ retail, cheaper from someone like Amazon of course.
Like the Site Designer Bible, I would say that this is a book that would serve as a good reference book beyond the exam, so you might want to buy and keep this one!

I have bought many books from Wiley over the years, mainframe programming books included and have found that they just do not publish rubbish. When I see that they are the publishers, I know that I have got a book I can trust.
When I was taking these course modules I found that although the reference material provided probably did have everything I would need for the exam, finding it was a problem. Also, some things were skimmed in the course and although the material made sense at the time I was a bit lost or unsure when revising. So I needed some alternative source material.
These Certification Bibles worked a treat. They are not exactly the lightest books to read, but they are packed full. I would say that they are all comprehensive in their coverage, well structured (albeit differently ordered than my own course material) and designed.
Yes, you can learn from them as a starter, but best of all they are comprehensive enough to work as reference books beyond your exam. Despite years, or maybe because of years of experience with some tools and languages, I reckon that a good reference book or two on anything you know are invaluable.

4.0 out of 5 stars E-Commerce 14 Jun 2006
An excellent book, as are the Foundation and Site Designer books by the same publisher. Very thorough although I found the book somewhat lacking when describing EDI & SET.

Chapters are very helpful; there are questions at the start of the chapter to test your existing knowledge and tests at the end with detailed answers and descriptions.

The book will certainly provide you with all the information you need to pass the CIW exam.

The end of book test and CD Rom are extremely helpful and simulate an actual exam environment. All in all a very well structured book with clear diagrams and pictures.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not good enough 5 Dec 2002
By Ramon - Published on
First of all let me congratulate you for your efforts in becoming an Certified E-Commerce professional, before writting this review I thought about this book a lot, I have to tell you that I read it from cover to cover and here are my thoughts: This book is extremely long, it talks about issues that you will not get on the exam nor they will be applied in real life, the test engine to my surprise had many, many errors, they were questions that will contradict themselves or sometimes you will find 2 correct answers when the test engine was only asking for one, futhermore, some questions had the wrong answer or were asked with insufficient information, bottom line it made it more confusing. It would mixed terms like EDI, SET and SSL.
Did I pass? yes, some questions in the test were addressed in the book, I also used online examcrams and free tests. You can pass the test with this book, but I think there room for improvement. Unfortunately, I cannot recommed this book, the most important chapter Security was left almost at the end, the explanation for symmetric and asymmetric encryption were very brief and doesn't explain it in a way you can understand it easily, also one of the key subjects for e-commerce today is security, which the book left for the end (when you are tired and your concentration is not at its peak) this makes it a lot more difficult. I wouldn't rely on the test engine at all, rather I will look for a more subject comprehensive and to-the-point text. I hope this comment might help in your search for an e-commerce text book and good luck!

4.0 out of 5 stars Only book I used, and I passed! 13 Mar 2002
By MK - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the only book I used to study for the E-commerce exam and I passed with an 85 percent. I think it is very adequate for the exam, but perhaps has some extra material (like Actinic Businees and so forth) that you do not need to know.
This book can be a bit confusing, so I recommend that you do all the questions in the book and also all the practice questions on the CD.
Here's what I did: the two nights before the exam, I reviewed every single chapter's pre-test as well as the chapter reviews and the questions at the end of the chapter. I also read all of the exam tips in each chapter (these are life savers for the exam). Make sure you do this!
The night before the exam I took three out of four tests from the CD. I recommend if you have the time and are confused to do all these tests and to go over them an additional time. This process will help you focus on the priorities for the exam. Best of luck on the exam!

5.0 out of 5 stars An example on how self- paced study books should be written 20 Dec 2001
By S Glucina - Published on
This book delivered me an 84% pass in the exam through self-paced study.
This was the only resource I used other than the Internet.
An excellent feature of this book is that it is crammed full of real e-commerce applications that allows you to simulate an online business to get the hang of what online commerce is all about.
You will learn about :
Creating online catalogues
Shopping carts
Shipping scenarios
Payment models
These are all essential elements that have to be experienced from the other side to comprehend how a successful online store should be constructed.
The exam question-testing engine included in the CD is the best I have come across.
To guarantee maximum success in passing the exam and or comprehending E-commerce principles make sure you follow the authors "How to use this book section".
This publication will feature in a prominent position on my bookcase as a comprehensive companion "oracle" to all real world E-Commerce matters for some years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prepares you well to be confused 2 Nov 2001
By Joseph Caniff - Published on
This book did a great job of presenting the material covered on the exam, and was key to my passing the test.
The hardest part of the exam was what had frustrated me about the book, confusing use of terminology. I felt that a lot of the practice test questions were overly confusing and not relevant to knowing the material.
But upon taking the exam, I found that they were true to the CIW format, which is also confusing to an extreme. The book guided me around what I knew was really true, to get the test questions correct according to CIW point of view.
More than worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent E-Commerce Resource 28 Nov 2001
By Orlando - Published on
I was very happy with the purchase of this book. The content is excellent, and it clearly points out what the important areas are for passing the CIW exam. The only things I did not like was that many topics were redundant throughout the book, and they emphasized a little too much on product-specific information. Otherwise, this book is a great resource for passing the exam and setting up your own e-commerce site.
