Was helpful, but I am relatively new to the game and have recently DMed my first game. Some of the details will need to be researched into further as the language used can over complicated some parts.

The best version of the DMG, it has plenty of useful information to create or add flavor to any campaign world.
This book is a great resource for D&D gamers. The 3.5 rules are definitely clearer and cleaner than the 3.0 rules, so that's an improvement. This book is meant to be used as a reference rather than to be read front-to-back, so it's not exactly meant to be used like that for newcomers to D&D. But for veterans, the DMG still contains pretty much what you'd expect in a DMG.
I think this book is quite well done. It's easy to follow and usually when you have a question it gives it to you almost immediately. At other times the answers are harder to find, and sometimes you can't find them at all. The organization of things in the book also is not as desirable as it could be. Still, the book overall is quite well done and the pictures are gorgeous.
I sat down and read this book essentially cover-to-cover (or tried to) and it doesn't lend itself to that kind of reading. however, if you're a D&D gamer like me, it's a recomended read, as it helps you understand why the game is set up the way it is.
very useful. couldn't run a game smoothly without it.

again just a reprint of the 3.0 rules but still good
An essential part of any D&D collection.
If it has an ISBN, I count it...
Rating based on usefulness.
