5.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction to PowerBuilder 6, 12 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Official Powerbuilder 6 Fundamentals (Paperback)
This PowerBuilder 6 book is a fast paced introduction to PowerBuilder. The CD includes a 30 day demo version of PowerBuilder; although the book is 650 pages, 30 days is satisfactory. The authors introduce PowerBuilder by leading the reader through several hands-on examples that eventually culminate into a small application. It was helpful to have each example relate to a single project. The first half of the book teaches the basics of PowerBuilder with very detailed and thoroughly explained examples. The second half introduces several more advanced topics without spending a lot of time on any single subject. I was impressed enough with this book that I plan to order the next book from Sybase Press on Advanced PowerBuilder.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book especially for programming neophytes, 6 April 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Official Powerbuilder 6 Fundamentals (Paperback)
This book is an excellent tutorial, even for the beginning programmer. If the instructions are followed as written, the results on the screen match the results in the book...the first time this has ever happened for me. It gives one a real sense of confidence. The book is wonderful, but the CD isn't. I got the 30-day demo to run by downloading and installing the one from the PowerSoft internet site, and haven't found much on the CD that has been useful yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great text from two people who know how to teach, 6 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Official Powerbuilder 6 Fundamentals (Paperback)
This book is a must for those looking for a book on Powerbuilder 6 from people who know how to transfer their knowledge. Unlike many other authors, Erlank and Levin are excellent 'teachers'. Persons new to the subject and object oriented programming, will find the subject matter extremely easy to follow. A highly recommeded text. Money well spent!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A complete newbie, this is essential., 15 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Official Powerbuilder 6 Fundamentals (Paperback)
Moving up from a DBA role to analyst/programmer I needed something which was in-depth and yet not too complicated. This book helped me through the basics via the tutorial, gave me a chance to 'catch-up' and then went into the real power of PB6. From start to finish, this is the book. Highly reccomended -........., what more could a customer want!
