2.0 out of 5 stars Boring and badly organized May 25 2007
By Daniel Abdullah As Salaaf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Although I have out-dated programming experience, this book is written using the most boring method of teaching and I found that this book is really not worth it. I wish I picked another book. I learned more from a free online tutorial.

This author should stick to programming and never write a book again.
