    Do I have to decide now on what to get? Can I change my mind later? I wouldn’t mind a little help with TortoiseSVN, so I guess this: TortoiseSVN 1.7 Beginner’s Guide if I have to choose.

      This was my first choice too initially but I changed my mind to “Service Oriented Architecture with Java”. Anyway looks like an interesting book.
