    I know we have these threads every so often to advice others on books. I figured it was time for a new one. :)

    I'm hoping a couple of people will suggest a good software engineering book along with a good design patterns book. :big grin:

    The Complete Reference: Java

    Along with being mentored by senior engineers, this was my introduction to Java and programming. I enjoyed it and used to refer to it quite a bit. However, I've heard much better things about Thinking in Java. I never bought it, but I hear it's great.

    Java Swing

    The reference for coding Java Swing. I used this book very often in my last programming class for interface coding. Covers about every Swing component you'll want to know about.

    Programming C#

    I've glanced through this book a few times in my process of learning C#. I never really read it because of my understanding of Java. I never felt like I had to actually sit down and read it. It does seem like a good overview of the language, but there are probably more complete books out there on C#.

    All The Rave: The Rise and Fall of Shawn Fanning's Napster

    Not exactly fitting with my other listings, but I really enjoyed this book. If you were ever a big Napster supporter, you'll love this one.

    In the Springtime of my youth
    The Complete C++ Reference 2nd Edition
    It's just a good all around reference, need to know where a function is or how to implement it this is where it's at

    Unix Systems Programming for SRV4
    (aka pink lion book) GREAT book if you're looking to do some programming for unix or linux.

    Best of all both books on for used versions, which I bought from in mint condition, go for about $20

    * Official MCSA Curriculum for 2000.
    * BICSI's Telecommunications Distribution Design Manual - 10th Edition
