Quite difficult to make the trial version of ArcGIS work in my pc as the computer was too new for it, they should upgrade the licences to the latest version

This is a great book on Python for ArcGIS - it may also be the ONLY book on Python for ArcGIS. If you use GIS, this will be a handy companion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent text--but without excellent exercises 22 July 2013
By Ben Logan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a fine companion to Jennings' A Python Primer for ArcGIS. In fact, it's kind of hard to buy one without the other. Together they make one book. I would recommend that, if you're a visual learner driven to absorb concepts, start with Zandbergen then dig into Jennings' for some really fine exercises and coding practices. However, if you're a tactile learner (like me), get under the hood and get your hands dirty with Jennings. Get to where you can comfortably do these exercises. And then dive into the why's and wherefore's behind them in the Zandbergen text.

Yes, I am a "shoot first, and ask questions later" type of guy. Jennings' text lets me dive in. But Zandbergen's is a well-written text that covers a number of tools beyond what Jennings treats. Zandbergen's exercises, in accompanying .pdf's, are--not very good. But I keep both books on my desk.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best book for introduction of ArcPy 2 Jan. 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is rare book because most of the parts in ArcPy is covered. You can learn from how to set up python environment to how to create your own toolbox. Even after you read through this book, you can use this book as encyclopedia for ArcPy.
The only one problem is monotonicity. Through chapters, the author show the code without any real-world analysis. So you may feel boring at the middle of this book. To avoid falling into such a pitfall, I recommend you to pull the real data from the web and apply it to the codes shown in this book.

Finally, As is clear from the tittle, this book is exclusively for the people who are using ArcGIS, not for people who wanna conduct geospatial analysis by using python. If you don't have or don't plan to use ArcGIS, this book is not useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Classroom or self learning 15 Mar. 2013
By Gregory A. Newkirk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Paul Zandbergen has filled a badly needed void with this book. For you college instructors who have been looking for a text to teach an ArcPy course, this is it. It has 14 chapters and accompanying labs. For the self learner, the book is quite accessible both in layout and content.

Paul has a thorough understanding of ArcPy and Python and he does a marvelous job teaching the basics and providing some useful inside tips. He is also comprehensive and thorough. For the instructor, you will need to get your lab up to ArcGIS 10.1. For the self-learner, the text comes with a 6-month license along withe data and labs.

No need to wait any longer. This is the text for learning ArcPy and now is the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for those absent programming background 5 Jan. 2014
By Freelance Geographer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is another nice issue from the ESRI press concerning Python scripting within their ArcGIS program. If you are a GIS user who needs the programming background to really understand and function your ArcGIS work, this is a good book to motivate you to learn.

There is a lot of buy-in necessary to make this work: mostly, beating your head against the programming wall over and over and over and over and over again when little issue pop up that makes things not work. Python at least is somewhat forgiving.

If you are a student in a course where this book is required... buy it. You'll need it for a while if you plan to make GIS a career.
2.0 out of 5 stars "Alternate Edition" does not come with a code for the 180-day trail 20 May 2017
By Rob Abrahamian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The "Alternate Edition" does not come with a code for the 180-day trial. The content looks solid and the few pages I've read were well written. Not much to say at the moment just wanted to make sure that the lack of a code for this edition was somewhere on the page because the from the item description or the other reviews, for other edition, it seems like the code should be in the book.
