Rob van der Woude's Scripting Pages

Recommended Books

Most of my scripting skills come from trial and error.
It helps to have at least one "non-production" computer available, and to regularly make backups.
Internet searches are also extremely useful when facing a "challenge".

Sometimes, however, it can be useful or just fun to learn more scripting skills from books.
On this page I present some of the books that helped me get a basic knowledge of scripting.
They are by no means the only books you can use, nor can I guarantee they are the best.
They worked for me though.
