From the Author
A concise guide for beginners - a reference title for pro's
I am a self-taught programmer who learned various programming languages by reading books, magazines and - most importantly - source code from others (also referred to as "learning by stealing"). With this tactics, I have earned the MCSE, MCSD, MCP-IT and CNA titles so far; not too bad for reading only. My support for the online ASP community has earned me the Most Valuable Professional (MVP) title for ASP, which I'm very proud of.
This book serves two purposes - to get beginners started with examples they can use in real life now, as well as serving the purpose of the #1 reference for the then advanced programmer. My co-author and I have put a heavy emphasis on readability, step-by-steps and background information you don't get anywhere else - we have put all our knowledge (I'm working on IIS since its 1.0 beta version) into this book.
You are learning about the basics, the tricks of the trade, database access for dynamic web pages, a shot of XML in the server-side environment, security guidelines for today's web servers, shopping solutions and various ways on how to extend the reach of ASP. Explore the possibilities step-by-step and come back later to re-use the code in your real-life applications.
From the Back Cover
Sams Teach Yourself Active Server Pages in 24 Hours is a step-by-step tutorial that teaches you how to create dynamic, fully functioning Web applications using Active Server Pages. Detailed coverage is provided for both Microsoft Personal Web Server and Microsoft Internet Information Server. Shows how to make sure your Web server is up and running correctly as well as how to build basic ASP applications. In addition to coverage of the basics of data access, you'll learn to send data, retrieve information, manage user sessions, use components, and work with files. Advanced topics include debugging ASP applications, building components, designing effective sites, adding security, and tuning ASP applications.See all Product Description

The one possible drawback is that ASP in 24 hours charges through the basics of VB script - some sort more extensive reference of components and operators would have been helpful, esspecially for those of you like me with no Visual Basic experience.
You could argue that the book did not go into enough depth in some places, but if the depth had been added it would not have been a 24 hours book. This is an introduction only, so look elsewhere (e.g. WROX books) if you want a fully blown, albeit more expensive, exposure to the subject.
A word of caution - all of the examples are in VBScript. This seems reasonable as it is relatively easy to translate between VBScipt and JScript. There is a quick quide to VBScript which I made use of (I'm a C++/Java developer), and I did not have any problems at all.
All in all, though, it completely fulfilled the promise of the title in that I learned a great deal about ASP in the alloted 24 hours, and deployed some of them on the web in the next 48 hours (e.g. automatic email responses to client queries, which is courteous and expected in the current eBusiness climate). Hence the full five crowns (or stars if you're on the U.S. site).
I have quite a bit of experience with HTML and DHTML, but have avoided ASP technology. While this book is rated for beginners, it covers everything I needed and a whole lot more... stuff like XML, configuring IIS, security blah blah blah... it exceeded my expectations by a lot. I plan to use it as reference material for ASP, IIS and security features.
If you are a beginner, or a little more advanced, and want to know everything about ASP++, but don't want to read thousands of pages... get this book!
The logo says 'for when you only have time for the answers'- If thats true I suggest you look elsewhere, it's quicker.
