5.0 out of 5 stars well worth it
Ive attended 2 qlikview courses and so had a good appreciation of the software but this book really filled in a lot of blanks that the courses didn't.
Ive been able to understand concepts previously baffling me and put these into a business solution. For me the step by step guides on how to do various functions were perfect.
Id easily recommend this to anyone...

2.0 out of 5 stars Fraud, 16 Feb 2013
This review is from: Qlikview 11 Developer's Guide (Paperback)
This is not a book for developers. Its for users. This is the same feedback i got from two developers who are trying to grapple with the many eccentricities of qlikview. its covers the high level basics of approaching qlikview as an end user, but side steps what you'd expect from this book ... A guide for developers. By that im refering to scripting, workbench etc. a more technical exploration into the murky depths.

As a book for users, its fine. But to call it a book for developers is grossly misleading. Hence the 2 stars. As a guide for users, 4 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent book but need much more details, 13 Sep 2013

This review is from: Qlikview 11 Developer's Guide (Paperback)
I was expecting a lot more from the book in terms of techniques and more details. Fairly basic book gives a more than a general idea but the Qlikview forum are a lot more informative that this book itself.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good effort but...., 2 Feb 2013
This review is from: Qlikview 11 Developer's Guide (Paperback)
This book is more for beginners to Qlikview. There are plenty of good Qlikview examples and explanations, however when it comes to being an actual developers reference this book still has a fair way to go.

However - the examples are clear and easy to follow. As per the first reviewer, it is amazing that there are so few reference books on the topic of Qlikview out there. I hope that future editions of this book contain more common issues experienced on actual projects and becomes less of a simple walk through of common examples for beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars At Last! The reference book that QlikView deserves, 16 Jan 2013
This review is from: Qlikview 11 Developer's Guide (Paperback)
As someone who has worked exclusively with QlikView for the past few years it has always amazed me that there has been no decent reference manual for the product. The one supplied by QlikTech explains in some level of detail each function and how it works on its own, but not how all these components fit together to build inspired analysis apps. There are a lot of excellent resources on the net, but again the information is fragmented.

This book is the first book that I am aware of that really gets under the skin of the product and provides step by step instructions that will take someone who is relatively new to QlikView from first principles to advanced concepts. What makes the book exceptional, in my opinion, is that whilst it is written in an easy to follow manner it does also pack in some useful tips and best practice advice that even people who have developed with QlikView for years will find useful.

In short; I would say that if you are lucky enough to find yourself developing QlikView applications then you should own this book.
