Discount Coupons


There seemed to be some disagreement here about whether this set still comes with discount coupons for the exams anymore. I just wanted to say I just bought the set (end of March) and mine does have the coupons. They're only good until June 30, 2004, but they're in there. Other than that, the set looks good, I hope to start going through it tonight. (NOTE: the Visual Studio 60 day trial comes on DVD, so if you don't have a DVD ROM and want to use the trial, you're out of luck!)

Nice little pocket review


This is a nice little pocket review. It's basically something you can get anywhere on the web packaged and bound with a pretty cover with an O'Reilly animal on it. I isn't really special in any way, but it's all that it is advertised.

Excel_ent, well structured source for excel


I had a few VBA books at home, but none of those have been a great help to me. While others go too deap not covering all the topics, others only scratch the surface. Other problem is that mostly books are about VBA in general, so there are much about powerpoint, access and word. Haven't been able to find a good book about excel VBA before this. When I got a serious job developing excel-solutions, I knew that I have to get a better resource. I found this book by amazon reviews and must say that this is one of the best books I have ever seen. The book is smartly structured by topics (great when you don't want to read it all through), So when you want to find about charts or userforms or commandbars, there is one chapter just for that and nothing else. Finding needful information is easy and fast. Secondly, while the book cover all the excel related issues, it dont go all that deep and text is kept quite short. you can find helpful facts easyly and read the rest from VBA help files.
As a summary, high price but all worth it.

Who knew there was a correct way to refer to your Macintosh?


If you do documentation or technical writing for a living, this is an essential. All too often, we are guilty of using adjectives and nouns as verbs. This book provides detailed assistance in how to use a word properly. I write documentation that is published on the WWW so my audience is very broad. I cannot afford stylistic slip-ups. This book can help you avoid them.
Note: This should not be assumed to be a replacement for a standard grammar and usage book such as a Gregg Manual. It should be used to augment standard style and grammar works.
