5.0 out of 5 stars This is a very in-depth book, yet very good. 16 July 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I think that this book is good for anyone who knows Cobol. This book is a great refresher for what you have previously learned. Great Syntax Help.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh the good old days..... 21 Aug 2012
Format:Paperback
I bought this book back in 1993. I thought it was good book, but as I had been working with COBOL (both 74 & 85) since 1990, I thought it a little basic. The compiler was great, so long as you do not want to do screen type programs, because as far as I can remember there was no curses library

1.0 out of 5 stars compiler was the best thing about the book 25 Feb 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I do not think this book is good for self study. The computer tutorial was slow and the text was not clear on several critical areas like using tables. The only reason to get the book is for the compiler which is pretty good. Get the book for the compiler then get one of the better books written by English speakers. The teaching style of the book is better suited to Eastern Bloc students than Americans. I write this as a former cobol instructor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive book 10 July 2000
By airbud - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book contains a lot of information on the features of the COBOL language. Being a novice COBOL programmer, I found the book difficult to follow at times. It discussed in depth many features that are either obsolete or not implemented in the included compiler. Also, I would have liked to seen a discussion on how the compiler handles the SCREEN SECTION and trapping of function keys. However, the included compiler is great tool to use to learn the language and is worth the cost of the book alone.

This is a Compiler and tutorial guide for learning cobol programing. I expect it to take several weeks to complete my study of cobol.
