This book is about turning data into knowledge. Data is cheap (at least
relatively); knowledge is harder to come by.
I will present three related pieces:
Probability is the study of random events. Most people have an intuitive
understanding of degrees of probability, which is why you can use
words like “probably” and “unlikely” without special training, but we
will talk about how to make quantitative claims about those degrees.
Statistics is the discipline of using data samples to support claims about
Many books exist that are guides to academicw riting for native speakersT. here are
also a number for non-native speakersO. f these,q uite a few deal with the use of
graphs, tables and other visuals. However, they normally explain how to insert or use
these visuals to make your work more interesting and easy to understand. They do

This book is about how to model the behaviour of complex projects. It isn’t about how to manage projects—although you’ll be expected to know the basics of project management—and reading this won’t make you into a better project manager. This book is written for analysts and workers in project management who find themselves needing to model how a project behaves.
What this book is about and how it can be used:
The existence of words is usually taken for granted by the speakers of a language. To
speak and understand a language means - among many other things - knowing the
words of that language. The average speaker knows thousands of words, and new
words enter our minds and our language on a daily basis. This book is about words.
More specifically, it deals with the internal structure of complex words, i.e. words
that are composed of more than one meaningful element....
This book is about tuning Oracle databases. Three areas of Oracle Database tuning are data model tuning, SQL code tuning, and physical and configuration tuning. The author began his career as an applications developer, not as a systems or network administrator. As a result, this book is written from an applications rather than an operating system perspective.

This book is about more than just Microsoft Expression Web. For most people, a web editor
is a means to an end—that end being a website that establishes a web presence. My goal in
writing this book is for you to be able to use Expression Web to do more than just establish a
presence: my hope is that you will be able to use Expression Web to create a website that fulfills
the site owner’s goals.
This book is about Java's support for dealing with groups of data. Prior to the Java 2 release, the only standard
support for data structures and algorithms was a few fairly basic options available through arrays, hash tables,
and vectors. Many people either created their own standard data structure library or reused one of several libraries introduced to deal with collections like the Generic Collection Library for Java (JGL) from ObjectSpace.
This book is about marketing and marketing strategy
planning. And, at its essence, marketing strategy planning
is about figuring out how to do a superior job of

all of the other teaching and learning materials that accompany
it—will satisfy your needs. We’re excited
about this edition of Basic Marketing, and we hope that
you will be as well....
Although this book is about ASP.NET, you can’t fully appreciate this new technology
unless you understand how Web development has evolved over the last few years. In
this first chapter, I’ll provide you with a brief history of the various ways in which Web
applications have traditionally been developed. I’ll start with HTML and then go quickly
through the Common Gateway Interface (CGI), the Internet Server Application
Programming Interface (ISAPI), and Active Server Pages (ASP).

This book is about graphic design rather
than being a book of graphic design. The distinction
may seem slight, but it is fundamental to this volume
as it covers the graphic design industry and its
processes rather than simply functioning as a
coffee-table book. However, this book also contains
works from highly imaginative creatives, which are
used to illustrate the fundamental principles and
working methods that graphic designers employ in
their day-to-day activities
This book is about network policies and how to implement those policies using Cisco IOS
access lists. I present a way to think about access lists and network policy, describe how
access lists are built, and give examples of how to apply those access lists in different
situations. Along the way, there are a number of sidebars and notes about concepts and
information important to using access lists, and at the end of the book, there are appendixes
with useful reference material.
Congratulations! You are about to embark on an adventure. This book is about the
processes, the people, and the practices that we call construction management—a
term and a profession that may be unfamiliar to many people. Construction, as
most individuals understand it, is an activity or a series of activities that involves
some craftspeople, building materials, tools, and equipment. But you will learn that
there is a great deal more to it than that.
