A great book for the beginner, and a great basic reference. Aug. 4 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is great, mostly because the text does not assume you know anything about computers, mainframes, or JCL; and groups the lessons on these subjects in order, so if you already know about a level of information, you can skip it and go on without loss.
The book explains everything it touches on in great detail, but doesn't explain all the obscure and rarely used options (a great benefit when learning an new language).
A section is included on the basic MVS utilities, but this is the one skimpy section of the book. Some of the utilities are underexplained (although the basics are fairly clear).
I never regreted the money I spent on this book, and I recommend it even today to people I meet who want to learn JCL (or even just more about the basic MVS environment).

Excellent resource for usage and examples. Aug. 14 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is one book that I would not want to have to do without. Worth every cent, an excellent resource for sample code, utility programs, and infromation. Doug Lowe has a very good style that makes it easy to learn. One of my best buys!

A great introductory JCL text. March 9 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Doug Lowe does it again! This book is perfect for those with little to no JCL experience. Easy to read and full of examples and complete descriptions of what is going on, this book is a true find. It worked for me.

An excellent beginning JCL book - current for MVS/ESA March 31 1999
By Linda Barker (lbarker@bpgtraining.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An excellent JCL book for beginners and to use as a reference. This is one of the 2 definitive up-to-date JCL books (the other being Gary Deward Browns book). Good explanations of mainframe concepts as well.

This book will turn novices into expert MVS/JCL users. Nov. 25 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book will teach you how to use JCL, even if you have no experience. In two weeks, I went from not knowing any JCL statements to impressing all of the operation analyst where I work. I recommend this book to people who are not familiar with MVS/JCL and would like an easy way to learn.
