This book is well worth the money! It is one of the cheapest books of its genre but justifies itself above any of the typical 'pocket guides' as it gives a complete picture of ASP. It covers everything you need to know in just the right level of detail, including what you require to write and view ASP pages and how they work.
Before buying this book I knew HTML inside out and a small understanding of VBscript. Now, just 3 weeks later I can put together dynamic web pages using ASP which not only look good but work well.
I have to say this is the best book on my 'internet bookshelf' and I am planning to buy the sequel on E-commerce programming in ASP and one on Javascript too.
I promise you won't be disappointed with this book. All you need to know is a bit of HTML and to have read this book to produce some great webpages.
I thoroughly recommmend it 100%.

This book lives up to the reviews on this page. Mitchell and Atkinson, the authors do a great job. I have been reading this book for 2 weeks now and I feel like I have been an asp expert for years! Its that good, and its clear and easy to pick up from beginner to intermediate levels
If you want to use ASP, this is the book to buy, just read the reviews - they ain't wrong..

An example of how good this book really is. I bought the book to help me with my dissertation, within 2 weeks, I had written an ASP based web-site that not only worked... but worked WELL.
I recommended this book to a couple of friends who were also doing their dissertations. All of whom passed with EXCELLENT grades.
How good? Well... here are the grades of the people I know used the book: I got a first, as did 4 of my friends, which left one other friend who got a 2.i (with a EXTREMELY high mark).
I still use the book, my friend still use the book (and he works as a web developer) and overall it has helped us all get to where we want.
So how good? VERY good.

This book is a very good for beginners... I were once a beginner, but with a lot help from this book I managed to master the language. But this book is not only ideal for beginners, it is also very usefull to experienced developers who need a "vocabulary". I still find it very usefull, because I tend to forget the so used functions in ASP and VBScripting.

Having been enticed by Sam's Teach Yourself Perl by Laura Lemay (the author writes superbly and the layout is perfect), I went for Sam's Active Server Pages 3.0 book because it folowed the same format. Like the best structured programming it deals with each component of the language without jargon or complication.
As a pretty much elementary programmer with a graphics background I found the layout and writing to be concise and to the point.
These guys Scott Mitchell and James Atkinson are not out to prove how clever they are, a fault of many jargon based books but rather how you can grasp the fundamentals of the subject.
From the get go I've been building Active Server Pages as I worked through the book. And you can too. Highly recommended.

Can't praise this book enough, I'm a student who was having great problems with ASP, after reading the appropriate sections in this book I feel confident and actually enjoy ASP!
Amazing. Recommended Greatly!

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Mark Bullen on 8 Aug. 2000
Format: Paperback
At long last, an ASP book that teaches ASP and using databases without prior knowledge of VBScript, ADO (ActiveX Data Objects) or SQL that is written in plain English. Well worth consideration if you know HTML and are looking move up to building ASP websites. The daily Summary and Q&A sections help to reinforce what you have learnt in that chapter.
Couple of minor gripes are that although Oracle is mentioned, the examples focus on MS SQL7 and MS Access 2000 databases. Another couple of pages on SQL and client-side scripting would have helped. However, the authors do provide references to other Sams Teach Yourself Books that cover those topics in detail and an appendix listing useful websites to top-up your knowledge.
Highly recommended.

Am currently working my way through this excellent book and am finding it to be a near perfect intro to ASP. Concepts are explained carefully and clearly and are backed up with suitable examples. Each 'day' looks at a different area and the reader is guided through the days and weeks at a comfortable pace. My only niggle is that some of the exercises at the end of each 'day' can be a little maths oriented (eg 'Code a function to determine the base-10 logarithm of a number' may make sense to some people but not to me). This aside, can heartily recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn ASP.
