This book is great, mostly because the text does not assume you know anything about computers, mainframes, or JCL; and groups the lessons on these subjects in order, so if you already know about a level of information, you can skip it and go on without loss.The book explains everything it touches on in great detail, but doesn't explain all the obscure and rarely used options (a great benefit when learning an new language).A section is included on the basic MVS utilities, but this is the one skimpy section of the book. Some of the utilities are underexplained (although the basics are fairly clear).I never regreted the money I spent on this book, and I recommend it even today to people I meet who want to learn JCL (or even just more about the basic MVS environment).
This is one book that I would not want to have to do without. Worth every cent, an excellent resource for sample code, utility programs, and infromation. Doug Lowe has a very good style that makes it easy to learn. One of my best buys!
Doug Lowe does it again! This book is perfect for those with little to no JCL experience. Easy to read and full of examples and complete descriptions of what is going on, this book is a true find. It worked for me.
An excellent JCL book for beginners and to use as a reference. This is one of the 2 definitive up-to-date JCL books (the other being Gary Deward Browns book). Good explanations of mainframe concepts as well.
This book will teach you how to use JCL, even if you have no experience. In two weeks, I went from not knowing any JCL statements to impressing all of the operation analyst where I work. I recommend this book to people who are not familiar with MVS/JCL and would like an easy way to learn.
This is a very detailed and easy-to-understand guidebook on how to teach yourself job control language and all of the in's and out's of the MVS operating system. Well worth the price.
