Loaded with Useful data, but.....
The author never does address what skill level is necessary to fully appreciate this book. From my reading it should be clarified at the beginning that this book is not for beginners. Being new to ASP I found this book very frustrating to follow. It wasn't until page 51 did the author decide to inform the reader exactly how to 'run' scripts in Windows. From cover to cover I felt the book was organized poorly. However,if I was a more experienced programmer I think that I would better understand the book's layout and be able to 'fish' through this convoluted book.Was this review helpful?

Good but frustrating
I'd buy it again, BUT it is frustrating in many ways. It is poorly edited and a beginner/intermediate will have trouble finding needed information. One of many examples I have as I tried to find info on calling procedures and functions is this: a line on page 237 (ch. 8) states 'If you know how to write Function and Sub procedures (see Chapter 3), then you know how to write methods for a class.' CHAPTER THREE BARELY MENTIONS SUB OR FUNCTION, and DOES NOT DEMONSTRATE how either is called from your script.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Opens a whole new world
This book opens a whole new world for developers new to this language. It allows executing batch files in windows, managing sites through ASP on the server side, and making visual affects on the client side. Any Internet developer should master this language and this book covers it well. It is a shame book does not come with cd rom that includes sample codeWas this review helpful?
