Useful for fourier optics simulations

I have completed numerous fourier transform algorithms (as well a FFT ones too) and this little book has been very helpful with most of its functions. I use it all the time to train my interns. Very good to get started... but beware that for advanced computing you might need a more complicated book.

Not much useful when comparing with other com book

After working with COM for some time one comes to wonder about how COM actually works. Don Box really explains the machinery behind COM in an excellent way. Apart from basic COM concepts such as interfaces and classes, hard-to-grasp areas like marshalling and security are discussed in a way even mortal people can understand!

The finest Access book on the market for serious developers

For an Access programmer who wants to move past wizards and macros this is the book to buy. Updated with a chapter on ADO (there's still an appendix with DAO info) this gives you the most information in one book. I'm waiting for the second part.

Great book.

This book was a great read. It was easy to get into quickly and every section was well written with real life stories and examples. It was a interesting read, like reading a thriller. Great book to keep as reference. Bruce really knows his stuff. Check out his other books too.
