Reviews - What do customers think about Building Online Stores with osCommerce: Beginner Edition?
Good osCommerce starter book Apr 5, 2008
This is a good, basic starter book for osCommerce. It takes you step by step through the process.
Good for beginners Nov 3, 2007
The biggest reason that I was disappointed in this book is because most of the information is re-hashed in the Professional Edition. If you want to know more than the absolute basics of osCommerce, skip this book and go straight to the Professional Edition which contains more information that you'll need before building your store. The Beginner's Edition doesn't go into enough detail to answer a lot of the questions that you'll have but it's still hard to give this book a bad rating as the information that it does contain is well presented and easy to understand.
Good for PHP programmers Jul 18, 2007
The informaton is so generic that you can find the same stuff in the oscommerce manual. Does not add anything to the manual. And its very expensive. Not very good
Beginner - Oscommerce Store Owner Jun 18, 2007
I signed up for an oscommerce store and was able to do some of the functions. I have to say in the beginning this was a life-saver for me only because I was not computer savy and oscommerce is not as easy to add items and to manipulate if you know nothing. Although it is the best shopping cart out there. I love it now that I know more. This book is just for the basic set-up of getting your store on-line. It will teach you attributes etc. Which I was not getting in the beginning. But even now I refer to it. What someone has to do is come up with a book to explain the various add-ons to ecommerce in laymans terms. Without this book as a non-oscommerce user and new store owner I would have been lost longer. I recommend it.
Fantastic book for people wanting to explore the world of e-commerce Mar 3, 2007
I had previously worked for an organisation that utilized oscommerce as their online store structure. my interest was fed by the fact that you could modify how the program acted through open source contributions via the oscommerce forums/community. thinking that this program was difficult to learn, and even harder to master i considered the beginner edition to be a suitable starting point for my little personal venture. in retrospect, the advanced edition would have been better suited, because by the time i worked through this book, i was making considerable contribution and giving advice on the forums to new comers.
In conclusion, if you work through this book from front to back, you will learn how to make an effective e-commerce enabled site.
