5.0 out of 5 stars This is a very in-depth book, yet very good.
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars compiler was the best thing about the book
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.

This review is from: The Revolutionary Guide to Cobol with Compiler (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

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.
