This is a very simple book with little information. Please note that most of these reviews listed here are bogus. I clicked on that last four reviewers and they had all reviewed the same books. Why would so many people even care about XML to write 259 reviews? It doesn't make sense. Please beware of these false reviews and don't spend $14 for this simple book.
After learning quite a few programming languages such as Java, HTML, and a little bit of C++, I have found that this language does seem a little bit more complex, but I think that makes it all the better in my opinion. XML Programming Success in a Day written by Sam Key does get into a lot of detail through graph drawings, and perfectly explained directions.
Won't teach you enough about XML to be useful. I needed to convert ASCII files to XML and this book won't help you in that or any similar task. More targeted, or so it seems to me, to XML as it relates to web page and HTML.Gives you some hints, but no "How To". If that is what you are looking for then look elsewhere.
Kindle Version on PC is useless, diagrams are not shown correctly, in a usefull way. Do not buy this book if you intend to read it on your PC using the Kindle app.This doesn't say the book is bad. It's an /Kindle App problem on PC.UPDATE:So i read a bit more. I think the book is really bad, all those good reviews here are bogus imo. The first 20 pages are written in an understandable way (so anyone checking the first pages gets the impression it is a good book). Then suddenly starting with chapter 3 the style changes completely and becomes confusing and unreadable. Suddenly nothing is explained anymore and the book becomes useless/worthless.To summarize: Kindle version has presentation problems, and the book itself is unreadable after a good start. It's the first time i want my money back as i feel double cheated by (Kindle version, bogus reviews). Clearly i can't trust the reviews here anymore in the future.I requested a refund.
If you are not familiar with XML, this book first talks about basics of XML and its elements.Once you have a good understanding of XML, the book focuses and explores various classes available in the .NET Framework to work with XML such ad read and write XML, update and transform XML and so on.The book also demonstrates how to work with databases using XML and ADO.NET classes.
I always loved reading Sam Keys' book's, he is a good author with great programming experience. He knows what he talking about. The basics are explained very well and understandable for beginners. Keep it up!
Poorly written and terribly edited (stylistic abominations, grammar, circumlocution), incorrectly formatted (display issues with certain elements on an Android Kindle), and structurally flawed as instructional text. In light of some excellent other introductory works on the subject (e.g. XML: Visual QuickStart Guide), the apparent popularity of this book seems suspiciously incongruous. What was I thinking buying a cheap, self-published, 82-page IT book from an unknown writer... Embarrassing.
I am delighted to have won this book Soolo give my honest opinion. I feel really good book. I think excellent guide for those new to this village and also has tutorial because if you do not know what to do with the XML program. I say this with confidence because I am a person who knows nothing about XML program. but after reading this book I have a good idea model is programmed in XML, how it works and learn some programming languages '' easily. I recommend this book for you when you need to learn quickly how to program XML.
