1.0 out of 5 stars Unusable, 29 Dec. 2009
Unfortunately alot of the book is out of date with regards to the examples. I wouldnt recommend buying it if your tring to learn Php & MySql. Better buying a book on each subject> if you learn both languages first you wont have any problem combining them as the Php syntax is very simple and your method arguments for databse access are just SQL statements


Java The Complete Reference, Seventh Edition (Osborne Complete Reference Series)
Java The Complete Reference, Seventh Edition (Osborne Complete Reference Series)
by Herbert Schildt
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for Java begginers as a reference, 29 Dec. 2009
Another very good book by Herb Schildt, a comprehensive guide to Javas begginer topics such as collections, multi threading, I/O and Networking.

Does not cover any Enterprise/Advanced concepts such as RMI or Security packages.

I would highly recommend this for anybody learning Java as i was, its is to this day still a great reference book and covers all the basic concepts required for the JSCP exam


Swing: A Beginner's Guide
Swing: A Beginner's Guide
by Herbert Schildt
Edition: Paperback
Price: £24.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book, 29 Dec. 2009
Excellent book, thoroughly covering the Swing basics, well commented by the author. Everything is explained in detail, covering all basic components such as scroll panes, text boxes, dialog boxs etc.

Would highly recomend for the swing beginner. The book has covered everything I have ever needed, the JTable section is particularly good.

Would definatley have to replace if it ever got lost!

Another great book by Schildt

3.0 out of 5 stars KORG AX3000G, 29 Dec. 2009
Very versatile pedal, giving the user alot of scope to make changes to the various settings for each effect.

A big improvement on the AX1500G. Also a good Yahoo community with uploaded patches etc. Can be used for computer recording, plugged directly into a compatible sound card.

If lost, I would not buy again as id upgrade, but definatley a good purchase


C# Complete
C# Complete
by Sybex Inc
Edition: Paperback
Price: £26.99

1.0 out of 5 stars C# Complete, Done Waste Your Time, 29 Dec. 2009
This review is from: C# Complete (Paperback)
Please dont waste your time with this book, its just a mishmash of chapters from 6 other Sybex books on C#, therefore nothing is comprehensive and half the chapters reference things from other chapters in their original books, so you have no idea what the author is going on about!

A complete waste of money for me. A fine example of one of the books outstanding failures is the complete lack of coverage with regards to naming/coding conventions and guidlines. This is basic material for any book such as this. Shocked.
