Overview

Creating Universes with Designer XI is a complete learning system consisting of a thorough book and a professionally designed computer-based training application. The system is completely dedicated to teaching you how to become a competent universe designer. Readers learn how to create a basic universe and, even more so, how to tackle many of the complications that may arise when designing universes. These topics include chasm traps, fan traps, multi-keyed property tables, double-counting measures, multiple fact tables, and more. Creating Universes with Designer XI is a wonderfully presented book with hundreds of large graphics, large fonts, and room for notes on every page. The topics are presented in a very smooth and organized manner, which makes the book very easy to learn from. The Creating Universes with Designer XI computer-based training CBT contains hours of interactive video instruction on over 80 different topics. Each topic discusses or demonstrates important aspects of universe design. The CBT interface is innovative and user-friendly, allowing students to browse chapter folders to locate topic icons. Students simply click on a topic icon to view and listen to a video. This interaction allows the CBT to be both a great trainer and a complete reference. Many people will find that this CBT is actually better than attending a class. In addition to the book and CBT, the CD contains an Adobe Acrobat presentation that allows the material to be presented in a classroom environment. Imagine teaching a class where each student gets a book and a CBT! The after-class support will be minimal, because each student will have plenty of reference material. The author realizes that even with the best training systems, questions may arise. Therefore he has made himself accessible through his e-mail, which is published in the book. He is very concerned that readers are able to learn the product, and therefore more than willing to answer any e-mai

    Excelent work!

    This is the third book I have bought by Robert Schmidt. I learned to design reports from his book 'Creating documents with Business Objects'. It is an excellent resource book. I learned to design advance level reports using his book and I always keep it as a reference. In Business Objects, the Help menu does not offer much help when you look for answers. His book is a better resource then the BO Documentation. He has explained everything in a very clear and concise manner. In his book and CBT on 'Business Objects XI: Creating Universes with Designer XI', again he has done a marvelous job in explaining basic but important aspects of creating universes. I would highly recommend both the book (for reference) and CBT( to learn faster and have a better understanding of concepts). He has given good examples on report context and universe context. The presentations are very clear. The real world examples make is so much easier to understand the concepts. I am very much impressed by the author . Whenever I had a problem, he immediately answered my questions with the explanations. He will go an extra mile and will even call you to help you out. So, rest assure your investment will not be wasted.

    A reviewer

    We've have been buying the Creating Documents with Business Objects books for years. Whenever we hire a new employee, we order the Web Intelligence book, and if they are to make universes, they also get the Designer book. This combination has worked very well for our employees. Recently, we ordered the CBT versions of these books and were surprised to see that we still got the same book. We quickly put the CD in to check the CBT and were happy to see that the CBT is actually quite good. We were also surprised that we got both at the same price as the previous versions of the books. The Designer book comes with a presentation that allows us to teach a class on Universes. The Web Intelligence book did not come with the presentation. We contacted Schmidt Ink, and were informed the non-CBT version of the book has the presentation. The person we spoke with also said that the presentation will be on the next print of the CBT. By the way, Schmidt Ink sent us a free copy of the previous edition, since we bought so many CBT's. We are very happy that these CBT's are available. They are high quality, easy to use, and inexpensive. One other note, so far the author has been very helpful. We have contacted him several times and he has discussed several matters with us, which is one of the reasons for this review. I just want to thank the author for great books and for helping us so many times.
