A good guide to ASP.NET

Read book, passed test, got job, can't complain.

This book does focus more on teaching ASP.NET than passing the test. I think that's a good thing, but I realize there are different opinions on that subject.

I Love This Book!

I have been a part-time graphic designer for about a year but I lacked alot of the design skills I needed. By the time I was through reading this book I was a designer! I have already made drastic improvements in my work and can now design pieces faster abd better! The book is easy to read and easy to follow using before and after shots and detailed explainations. I have already bought the Design Workshop and plan on buying the rest of her books in the series! Even if you are a desinger and are good I would still recommend this book- to anyone!

Simply The Worst Guide Ever

I've purposefully not read any of the other reviews, but from the average rating the guide has received I can tell that we all feel the same way, but I also wanted to do my part in warning people away from this atrocity. Simply put, BradyGames Strategy Guide for Final Fantasy IX is the worst gaming guide that I've come across in my 10 years of gaming experience.
When you buy a gaming guide, it's not because you couldn't make it through the game without it, though it does help on the rare occasion that you might get stuck(who could get stuck playing Final Fantasy as easy as they make them these days? I don't know). The guide is there for helping you find items, weapons, spells, characters, etc. that you might miss if you were making your way through on your own. It's also there for your convenience, so that you don't have to go call a friend or get online to find one of the many walk-throughs available there. Doing those things takes time. You want to actually play the game, right? Well, think again because it's not going to happen with this guide. They give you the bare necessities inside the acutal book, then tell you to refer to their website, PlayOnline.com, for the specifics. Who would want to go back and forth between their game and the website? I don't know either. Do yourself a favor. SAVE YOUR MONEY! If you really have to spend it, do so on something else more useful like a really bad haircut, or even send it to me. I'm done ranting.
