The Circuit Designer's Companion, Second Edition
Best Practical Handbook
Excellent book. Well-written and full of practical examples and advice -- not just what to do, but what not to do, as well. Everything from avoiding ground-loops and calculating transmission-line effects on a PCB, to transistor characteristics and how to build a proper biasing two-transistor buffer. I found the transmission-line rules of thumb especially insightful. The clever use of a ...

Understanding A3 Thinking: A Critical Component of Toyota's PDCA Management System
Productivity Press, 2008
Good A3 Reference Book
Outstanding reference work of the logic and mechanics of creating A3's. Covered are 3 variants: 1) Problem Solving A3's, 2) Proposal A3's, and 3) Status A3's. The authors present a refreshingly pragmatic approach to helping improvement teams and leaders to drive communication, scientific method thinking and organizational alignment for improvement. Clearly building on the A3 heritage of ...
Maternal-Newborn Nursing: The Critical Components of Nursing Care
Linda, RN Chapman
Roberta F., RN, Ph.D. Durham
F. A. Davis Company
Good but not great.
This book is great for basic maternity information. Like reading notes from someone else's lectures, you'll get all the important info without getting into details. If you're looking for something more in-depth, this book is not for you.

Andrés Duany, Jeff Speck and Mike Lydon have written an artfully concise, universally accessible handbook that balances basic concepts with complex details. The book mixes substantial "best planning practice" and development wisdom with brilliant insight. It proves (by describing ...
Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology (9th Edition)
Elaine N. Marieb
fast and efficient
The book came reasonably quickly. I would mention that it didn't come with the CD that usually accompanies the book when you purchase it new... but I got it used, for a great price, so I wasn't really expecting the CD. There was only minimal underlining/highlighting/marginal notes, not at all a problem. The book is well written, has easy to read diagrams, and explains Human anatomy in a nice ...
Fundamentals of Building Construction: Materials and Methods
excellent comprehensive text
This volume covers each aspect of building construction in quite a bit of detail. The illustrations are superb. The best I've seen for a book on this material. The book could have gone into greater depth about reinforcing steel and formwork for concrete but these are minor shortcomings in an otherwise great book which is a must for the budding architect and construction engineer or indeed for ...
Head First Servlets and JSP: Passing the Sun Certified Web Component Developer Exam
Good book but not complete
It is a good book but to get the J2EE 5 Web Component Developer certificate you must use other resources. Nevertheless, I would say that I learned a lot reading this book and it wouldn't be fair to grade it with 4 stars. I recommend this book for people who don't know nothing about web development using Java. However, if you want to be an expert you should read other books for complementing the ...
Google SketchUp Cookbook
O'Reilly Media, Inc., 2009
Great help for advanced tools
This book is a huge help! I've been using SketchUp for a few years and never knew about some of the topics covered in this book. For instance you can use section planes and styles as part of an animation, which I never saw explained in another book or video. The stuff on presentation and model display is really helpful for developing models that my clients want to see. The tutorials are easy to ...
Analog Circuits (World Class Designs)
Another excellent tome by Robert Pease
While many semiconductor mfg's were satisfied to supply sketchy data and pinouts, National Semiconductor always provided excellent applications notes. Here Mr. Pease and his colleagues continue this, along with the mentality that goes into WORLD CLASS engineering. KUDOS!
RF Circuit Design, Second Edition
The RF Bible
This is the book if you are new to RF radio frequency design. I lost my original copy so I had to get a new one. The printing is perfect.
Fundamentals of Electric Circuits
Great Electrical Engineering textbook
Unfortunately there are a few typos with equations but I ditched our WVU university book and used this one and was able to easily follow the examples and to the hw problems and understand everything I needed to know. Very very clear and easy to read, well refined, and meant to let the student teach himself/herself. I've had a lot of college classes and this is one of the 2 most impressive books ...
Electronics and Circuit Analysis Study Guide: Signal Transforms, Fourier, Laplace & Z transform, Transfer ...
Logical, organized, and clear
Electronics and Circuit Analysis Study Guide This is a very useful reference ebook. And for the price, it's an absolute steal. An excellent source for students seeking familiarity with the subject.

Applied SOA: Service-Oriented Architecture and Design Strategies
9 reviews, ...
Outstanding - worth the read.
I have not seen a SOA book that is as practical as this one. Most of the people I work with understand why SOA is important, and we all get the vision by now. Many of the other popular SOA books ONLY focus on the vision and "what is SOA?" but not much else. This book is different. It provides details. It focuses on architecture, design, and provides in-depth guidance for a wide variety of ...
Circuitbuilding Do-It-Yourself For Dummies
H. Ward Silver
Great fast fact book. Bought it for a relative who has just entered an electronics training program. After looking thought the schools textbook and its jumbled pedantic information, I found this book and my relative LOVES IT!! Has definitely made learning and reference checking much faster!
Oracle Fusion Developer Guide: Building Rich Internet Applications with Oracle ADF Business Components and ...
McGraw-Hill Osborne Media
Indespensible for any ADF developer
Recently read this book and it is packed with information. Its not a tutorial on how to create complete application but instead it contains hundreds of nuggets on how to create individual functionalities for ADF. Most of the theory is also explained well and points to references to Dev Guide as well. Its best to read Fusion Dev Guide before reading this one.
Essential Cosmic Perspective, The (5th Edition)
Jeffrey O. Bennett
The Most Exceptional Textbook This Side of the Galaxy!
I love this book! I don't even read text books very often, but this one is one of the most fun text books I've ever read--the fourth edition of "The Essential Cosmic Perspective." Perhaps I say this because I like Astronomy. I've never taken the course before, so this is really the only college text book in this subject I've looked at. Still, everything in here is interesting. It has been ...
Electric Circuits (9th Edition) (MasteringEngineering Series)
James W. Nilsson
Electric Circuits (8th Edition) by James W. Nilsson, Susan Riedel
