This book has the style that makes learning a new language interesting by giving you a little theory and then an explation by example. This book even with it's typos and missed placed blocks still is head and shoulders above a lot of other teach yourself manuals. The author did a good job with content and touching on the many areas of ASP. I trust that if Nicholas Chase decides to write another 'From Scratch' book (which I hope he does) he will get better editors, or proof readers. I would recommend this book to anyone trying to get thier feet wet with ASP or programming. The errors in the book only serves as another lesson that no program is created without alot of bugs.

While this book is great in theory, as another critic said, it would have been nice if they had actually edited the book and made sure that the application that you build actually WORKS! There are numerous typos and in the end, after three weeks of doing the best I could with bug squashing (remember, this book is supposed to be for beginners), the site doesn't operate. I will be taking this book back.

ASP 3.0 from Scratch by Mr. Nicholas Chase is definitely a wonderful book to have if you are starting to learn ASP. The teaching methodology and styles used are wonderful as I felt like having an instructor sitting in the same room answering any questions I had. The book despite its length of only 379 pages covers a lot of terrain from HTML to VBScript to object-oriented programming with ASP objects used to create a web-based and small database application. The book comes with a complete and useful code on CD-Rom. Unlike some books that teach purely theory with relatively less practical codes, this book takes you immediately to action. One learns not only the codes but also at the same time builds an online magazine and store front with other features such as auction and personalized pages. What I found useful was the publisher/author site on the WWW which contains information on errata which helps readers correct any typographical errors found in the book. A definitely good starting book for anyone who wants to learn about ASP and E-Commerce.

Though this book is a great concept, the unbelievably numerous typos make it impossible to learn from. The 'From Scratch' obviously means that we received, in this book, something that didn't go through the necessary editing process. Errors not only in spelling and grammar, but also plentiful errors in the CODE that you're supposed to use to build the pages make it impossible to follow the steps defined in the book. It would have been nice if the people who wrote this book to teach us Active Server Pages would have tested what they wrote to make sure it actually WORKED!
