As an engineer, I knew little about the UNIX and at that time one of the project is going on based on the
system. I found the book Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment through my friends. And then from
the book I know many things about the UNIX and it is of great help for my job..

Peng Xu, ZTE engineer



I learned the correct equations of an algorithm, that was confusing in the papers. Accelerated

my research, not waste of time.

Leticia Zamora, Telecomunications Engineer



By using a reference into the new article/publication, we refer to the work of someone else to certificate the
reasons of what we are publishing it. Online resources have graphic modelation

of tables that are interactive and helps to find the best and suitable solution to specific matter..





Online books are important tool to access all kinds of information.
