20,000 Leagues Under the Sea


20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is about the adventures of Captain Nemo and his crew aboard the submarine, Nautilus. One day ships start sinking, particularly ones dealing with war. Survivors think it is a big whale. A harpoon ship goes out to kill it, but finds out that the whale is actually the Nautilus.

The most interesting part of this book was probably the Nautilus itself. It is shaped to look like a fish, with a large metal fin on top used to ram and sink the ships. The camouflage of the boat being shaped like a whale works, up until the part where the Nautilus takes on a few passengers from one of the sinking ships.

Another intriguing part of this book was Captain Nemo. He is the kind of character that you neither like nor dislike. I say this, because of some of Nemo’s actions. Captain Nemo hates war, and throughout the book, he uses his submarine to destroy all kinds of war related ships. You would like him for trying to put an end to war, but dislike his method (destroying ships and killing innocent lives).

Lord of the Rings Series

B00005RDP8.02.LZZZZZZZThe Lord of the Rings is an epic high fantasy novel written by the English academic J. R. R. Tolkien. The story began as a sequel to Tolkien’s earlier fantasy book, The Hobbit, but developed into a much larger story. It was written in stages between 1937 and 1949, with much of it being created during World War II. It was originally published in three volumes in 1954 and 1955 somewhat to Tolkien’s annoyance, since he had intended it to be a single volume. It has since been reprinted numerous times and translated into at least 38 languages, becoming one of the most popular works in 20th-century literature.

6a00c225280416549d00c225285115f219-500piPreparing for GRE. Then this book will help you to get good score.

As prospective graduate students concerned with professional advancement, you know the importance of using good tools and drawing on solid research. In this Twelfth Edition of Barron’s How to Prepare for the GRE, we offer you both.

This revision contains the fruits of our close study of all recent GRE General Tests made public by the Graduate Record Examinations Board. We have scrutinized hundreds of actual GRE questions, traced dozens of GRE reading passages to their sources, analyzed subsets of questions by order of difficulty and question type. In the process, we have come up with the following features, which should make this Twelfth Edition particularly helpful to you:

Actual GRE Questions Analyzed

The Twelfth Edition takes you step by step through dozens of verbal, mathematical, and analytical questions from actual published GREs, showing you how to solve them and how to avoid going wrong.

Testing Tactics

The Twelfth Edition provides you with dozens of proven, highlighted testing tactics that will help you attack the different types of questions on the GRE.


The Twelfth Edition gives you a new, updated 333-word High Frequency Word List, 333 words from abate to zealot that have been shown by computer analysis to occur and reoccur on actual published GREs, plus Barron’s 3,500-word Master Word List, the college-level vocabulary list for over 40 years.

Comprehensive Mathematics Review

The Twelfth Edition presents you with extensive mathematical review materials that provide a refresher course for students primarily involved in nonscientific disciplines.

GRE-Modeled Tests

The Twelfth Edition offers you a full-length Diagnostic Test geared to the current GRE, a diagnostic test that will enable you to pinpoint your areas of weakness right away and concentrate your review on subjects in which you need most work, plus five additional Model Tests, all with answers completely explained, that in format, difficulty, and content echo today’s GRE.

Computer GRE Update

The Twelfth Edition introduces you to the latest fashion in GRE testing-the adaptive, computer-based GRE and helps you determine how to prepare for this interactive form of the GRE.

This Twelfth Edition once more upgrades what has long been a standard text. It reflects the contributions of numerous teachers, editors, and coaches, and the dedication of the staff at Barron’s, especially Linda Turner. We, the authors, are indebted to all these individuals and to our publisher, Manuel H. Barron, for their ongoing efforts to make this book America’s outstanding GRE study guide."

VHDL CookBook by Peter J. Ashenden

VHDL is a language for describing digital electronic systems. It arose out of the United States Government’s Very High Speed Integrated Circuits (VHSIC) program, initiated in 1980. In the course of this program, it became clear that there was a need for a standard language for describing the structure and function of integrated circuits (ICs). Hence the VHSIC Hardware Description Language (VHDL) was developed, and subsequently adopted as a standard by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) in the US.

VHDL is designed to fill a number of needs in the design process. Firstly, it allows description of the structure of a design, that is how it is decomposed into sub-designs, and how those sub-designs are interconnected. Secondly, it allows the specification of the function of designs using familiar programming language forms. Thirdly, as a result, it allows a design to be simulated before being manufactured, so that designers can quickly compare alternatives and test for correctness without the delay and expense of hardware prototyping.
