This is one of the best books I've read! You don't get bored. It starts off simple and then progresses to the more advanced stuff therefore it's good for beginners. The chapters are quite short, so you don't switch off in the middle and start playing around! I'd recommend it to all beginners. But if you already had some experience in C#, then this is not the right book for you.

I bought this book based upon the previous reviews, and they were certainly accurate. John Sharp writes very clearly, and manages to assemble many useful examples in his book which illustrate the topics very well indeed. Having prior programming experience in Java does help a great deal (for me at least) with learning C#, but the enjoyment I have derived in learning both C# and Visual Studio 2010 is due to the excellent text produced by this author. I hope he will write many more books!

I found this to be a very useful book indeed. My previous programming background was largely IBM mainframe Assembler and as a newcomer to object oriented programming, I have found the book invaluable. I have by no means got through the entire book but I have every confidence that the remainder of it will be as instructive and useful as the parts I`ve already covered. The companion CD-ROM contains code for all the exercises in the book and will free you from lots of typing. You'll need Windows 7 (or Vista SP2) and Microsoft Visual Studio to follow the exercises. You could spend a lot of money buying a charged-for version of Visual Studio but Visual Studio Express can be downloaded for free from Microsoft. I highly recommend this book and the author's engaging style.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ian Smith on 20 April 2011
Format: Paperback
The Step-by-Step series from Microsoft tends to be the series that just scrapes the surface of the subject it purports to cover. Heck, let's be honest here, most of them are very poor, very basic tutorials.

THIS BOOK DOES NOT FIT THAT PATTERN.

It's 740 pages for starters. But it's 740 pages written by someone who totally understands his subject, understands what's important, and knows how to teach it. It's probably my favourite OO-oriented C# book of all of them (and I've read a lot). If you're sick of those sorts of job interviews where the interviewer asks "What IS an event exactly?" or "How exactly does the garbage collector work?" or "Explain to me what a lambda expression is" and struggle to find precisely the right words, then this is the book for you.

It may be sold as if it's an "introductory" book to C# (and it fulfills that function well) but this book and its predecessors (author John Sharp has rewritten the book with every new version of .NET) are one that I re-read every year or two to remind myself of the sort of stuff one tends to forget when one is a jobbing developer.

Highly recommended, despite the misleading "Step-by-step" title (although John really does lead you 'step by step' through all the basics of the language that you really need to know and understand).

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By M. D. Vickers on 23 Dec. 2010
Format: Paperback
The book covers all aspects of building code in C# and inter-operating with other Microsoft components. It is well laid out with many code examples and thre is a CD containing the examples is provided . There are copious references to the text in the index.
It will help any programmer with a degree of basic knowledge get up to speed with the C# language. It will also be of value to programmers well proficient in other languages who wish to move over to C#
A minor irritant was that the book proceeded the release of the Express Version of the language by Microsoft and the code examples provided on the associated CD do not run directly with C# 2008 Express.

It doesn't matter if you are a begninner or if you already know other programming language. This book is a real pleasure to read (and study) and covers in details a lot of important C# aspects. Thanks to its examples you immediately get an idea of what you are talking about.
From the beginning you are shown graphical interfaces too, and this makes the learning process even more funny. Definitely a must buy.

I just bought this book, after few days of reading I feel this is the right book for me as a beginner. The text is easy to understand and example files came on CD even make it more understandable. I recommend it for people who want to start using C#.

This is an excellent book. I'm not a beginner so it's hard to say if it is the best for a complete novice, but I suspect it's probably the best book you might find to start learning this language.

I'm struggling to find any fault with it. However, it does introduce a number of topics "along the way" and within the exercises. So this makes it less helpful as a reference book. But it was never intended as a reference and, being such a large subject anyway, you'll need eventually to supplement it with a more detailed reference.

The examples are quite novel as well.
