The Online Book Review Management System project has been successfully completed. The goal of the system is achieved and the problems are solved.This project is developed in this manner that is user-friendly and required help is provided at different levels.

The primary objective is to provide the interactive service to all the students. Different types of services are provided to both the students and staff. The student can avail this service anytime.

This system certainly doesn’t reduces the manpower but helps the development of the available manpower and optimizes the manpower.


The present system is developed for offline communication only.
As the memory capacity is limited to server’s memory we can’t accommodate an infinite number of users.
An unauthorized candidate can take the exam instead of an authorized candidate if he knows his user ID and password.
The images or pictures, which are drawn by the Drawing Tool Bar, can’t be saved.


To make that only authorized candidates taking the exam their fingerprints, can be taken and compared with stored ones.

Examination centers can be set up at various places and candidates can be asked to take the exam in those centers only. Invigilators should be asked to invigilate at those centers. This eliminates copying and any malpractices by the candidates.

Voice can be provided to all the students by using VOIP (voice over internet protocol).
