2.0 out of 5 stars Quite Rough 27 Dec 2002
By L. Fuller - Published on Amazon.com
I purchased this book because I learn best by following examples based on real, useful projects. I have completed project 1 and thus far have these observations:
1) Though "validating data" is stressed, the example code does a very poor job of doing so.
2) The authors seem to forget what they need in their example forms. For example, the CustomerForm in project 1 is supposed to be able to add and edit records contained in a customer table. However, they authors forgot to create a way to add the record!
3) Some of the information is presented out of sequence and thus causes a great deal of confusion. For example, chapter 9 is on Validations and Exception Handling. It looks like this information was once part of chapter 10 and the authors decided that they should discuss validation first. However, it appears that they forgot to rewrite the material so that it would make sense in its new context! I found myself flipping back and forth between the two capters in order to finish the project.
4) Even with these problems, the book would still be useful if an online errata existed. However, I have not been able to locate one on the Website provided.
5) Project 1 presents an inconsistent interface. Each of the forms in the project has a similar purpose but entirely different interfaces and controls. I believe the authors did this in order to show the reader that there are different ways to use .NET Studio to do the job, but I do not recall that this was actually mentioned in the text. All I can say is do not use the projects in this book as models for good interface design.
I have been a programmer for almost three decades and I am already knowledgeable in Java, C++ and Visual Basic, so I am still able to use this book as a tutorial to learn the features of C# and the .NET programming interface. Since this book was still useful in that respect, I have given it 2 Stars instead of 1. However, if you are new to object oriented programming or new to programming in general, please give this book a skip.

2.0 out of 5 stars Microsoft C# Professional Pants... more like! 26 Oct 2002
By Rus Clements - Published on Amazon.com
Sorry, but even after reading several reviews here that say the same thing, i still have to voice an opinion! This book is awful! Not only does it tell you at the end of Chapter 8 that the next form in the first project will be dealt with in the next chapter, it continues in Chapter 9 to tell you how to validate code in the form you haven't even created... then goes on to chapter 10, waiting until near the end to tell you how to create the form!
There are several typos and much mssing code as said before...
The diagrams of the non-standard windows include properties set that are not listed in the creation steps... and the list goes on...
However... there is some light at the end of the tunnel... one of the most annoying problems with learning a new language is learning how to cope with errors... and this book gives you that instruction from page 1... Albeit I'm sure not intentionally!
Going through the steps of designing a project, if you have never worked on the lifecycle of a professional project, is something this book does touch upon, and in that regard does a good job. But all of this and more can be gleaned from any other books. Wrox's Beginning C# and Professional C# series' are far superior, and similarly priced, if not cheaper... I solidly recommend avoiding this book, unless you have money to burn.

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible 4 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
As most of the other reviewers, I have found this book seriously lacking in editorial professionalism. Missing code, chapters/sections out of order (ie, project 1, fix the input validation on a form in chapter 9, and create the form in chapter 10! Yes, it is that bad)
To push a book this bad on a public that's attempting to educate themselves is nothing short of a sin.
After visiting Premier's web site, there is no errata, nothing at all (except to download the example code).
Avoid this one!

1.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Disappointing 23 Aug 2006
By J. Burton - Published on Amazon.com
Having read through the full table of contents before purchasing this book I thought I'd found a great book. Decent projects from design through to implementation with examples. However, what the book really turned out to be was some very high level discussion on the projects with very poor detail. There were no intelligent discussions on the designs or implementations. It lacks any real detail and the examples themselves are poorly done when compared to other C# books I've read/use. Its a book which will gather dust on the shelves for sure.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ugly 5 April 2004
By Bruce Bookman - Published on Amazon.com
As many of the other reviewers have mentioned, this book is very rough. Around chapter 9, it seems that some pages have gone missing. The first project has you create some forms, but at the end of ch. 9 it says the next chapter will cover creating one of the key forms you need for the project. Ch. 10, though, starts out assuming you already have completed creating this form.
The authors clearly did not have anyone actually sit down and try to follow their examples. The idea of a project oriented book is great, but the execution on this one is just horrible
