Format: Paperback
This was one of three books I used to study for the 70-152 MCSD exam, which I'm happy to say I have now passed.
Good points :
- Written in an extremely readable style. Very user-friendly. Not crippled by the pompous, dry tone you find in so many computer manuals.
- Provides just the right amount of detail about critical areas for the 70-152 exam, especially MTS.
- Provides great background information about general web development issues that are invaluable for InterDev newbies.
Bad points:
- Written in 1998, and now a bit out of date. A revised edition for 2002 would be very welcome.
- Too much detail about areas that have no relevance to most InterDev developers. If you're studying for the 70-152 exam, the last few chapters are a complete waste of time.
My advice? Use this in conjunction with the official Microsoft InterDev study guide, and you should do just fine. The Microsoft book doesn't provide enough detail, and is rather unreadable. This one is much friendlier and much more informative. It's probably the only computer book I've read in the last year that I really felt was worth the money.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 31 July 1999
Format: Paperback
It is a very readable book. Going into a lot of concepts of working with existing architecture. I was expecting a deeper dealing with InterDev and was disapointed. It's not about how to use the program, more about what the program can be used for and strategies for doing that. If you want detail on the program itself, wait to get this later.

Format: Paperback
This book should be renamed "Introduction to enterprise development concepts". The author mentions various enterprise development issues in passing paragraphs, and assumes that the reader is a beginner just getting into application development. The sample application is mentioned, but code for the application is barely covered. It is assumed that the reader will install the CD and read the code to figure it out. When code is shown, it seems like it was purposely double-spaced to fill more pages.
Visual Interdev is not covered deeply. An entire paragraph to skim the features of VI6.0 is a waste of paper. It is no better than the online documentation that comes with the Microsoft CD. I was looking to understand visual interdev and to tie it my databases, and bought this book based on other reader's comments, but was disappointed. I will return it since it does not meet my needs.

By A Customer on 11 Jan. 1999
Format: Paperback
The book is pretty good but heavily weighted to the Visual Basic programmer, the author makes no apologies for that and VB IS a good rad tool. However, there are a lot of us Visual C++ programmers that are looking at using Interdev too. The author seems to ignore VC++ until he wats to use the VC++ Source Code Editor in Chapter 11. (At our location, we have VB programmers in house for the VB code.) I like the book, I just wish authors would stop relying on VB because of it's "ease of use". I would recommend the book to people who are new to the Visual Studio 6 and VB programmers but I'm still looking for a book that covers the enterprise level development tools well.

Format: Paperback
Fantastic book, covers most every aspect of enterprise development related to Visual InterDev. My only complaint is that, for no readily apparent reason, the authors insert a page or several of code. In the first six chapters I found myself skipping pages upon pages of code that was inserted, in my opinion, with no purpose. At the point of insert the author was talking in generalities and the page(s) of code added nothing to the discussion. Later in the book, when the authors are being more specific, the code inserts are appreciated. Other than that nit, which simply results in a book that is 20-30 pages larger than it needed to be, I found the book to be a great resource.

This is a great book for gathering info on how to tie in Enterprise level concepts with InterDev 6. If you need a book specifically ON InterDev 6.0, look elsewhere. If you are an experienced developer with enterprise concepts to worry about and advanced Web projects on the go (from Microsoft's point of view...of course), then this book is a great read, and like another reviewer mentioned, an easy read. InterDev 6.0 however, remains the central subject throughout the book, on which other subjects tie into fairly nice. To the Author: Excellent job on bringing Enterprise computing to the audience in a clear and descriptive manner.

I'm about half-way through this book, and can't put it down. The author writes in casual and easy to grasp language. The example he uses throughout the book is a real-world business example. Since the first chapter, I've learned something new and useful with every chapter, from browser choices for my target audience, to databases for the backend. The subject material is great for the programmer who is just getting into web applications, and those already doing it. If you develop or want to develop web applications, this book is a MUST HAVE!
