2.0 out of 5 stars Think before buying
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 19, 2018
I bought this book after it was recommended by my University.

I was told it is a good book for beginners during the first few chapters. Which I can confirm.

Pros:
It teaches the basics well.

Cons:
The book is kind of outdated, support does not really work for it anymore.
Mentioned Web Downloads not available anymore.
Too much referring to Web Download resources which is as I said not available anymore.

The biggest no for me, I hardly got this book 1 week ago and as you can see on the picture it is already falling apart.
This book was a big waste of money for me like this.

I would recommend buying something else if possible.
