Great book, fantastic format.

If you are fed up of reading computing books that border on becoming a novel then this is the one for you.

Straight forward example, straight forward text. Nice to know that at least one author realises that not everyone has time to read books and volumes of pages does not make the book good.

I highly recommend this book. Go get it if you want to start learning c#

Pro Developer.

Format: Paperback
This book is simply superb, but considering the pedigree this is not surprising. I have a number of Murach Books and they are never far from my desk.

What I like about this book in particular is the fact it doesn't treat you like a 'hello world' programmer. It gives you some respect and that respect is in the form of look we know you know how to program, but you got this book for a reason and that is to help you learn this new language or language version. Well, we are going to do exactly that.

If you are already a programmer, you likely have your own structure for how do things, this book helps you increase your real-estate in that it shows you how to do things that you would want to do day to day as a programmer not 'demo' stuff like populating combo-boxes with hard coded text, you can get that anywhere. No real examples things you might use in production. That's why it's good and I recommend it to you.

Having secured a new job and required to switch from VB.NET to C# and having purchased the SQL Server 2005 book by Murach (which impressed me with it's ease of style) I thought I would take in this book.

I have not been dissapointed and it has become my desk companion to quickly look up the required syntax or example.
With the easy reading style of subject description on the left and examples on the right of a 2 page layout system, the book can either be used to read from start to finish or dip into when required.

The book starts with an overview of Visual Studio 2008 including debugging and moves onto Windows applications before progressing onto Web applications.
Particular interest to me was the Object oriented programming section and inheritence sections as my new projects were OO based.
The subjects were put over very simply without long baffling text, but this does not mean anything has been left out.

The book then moves onto database programming, ADO.NET, file streaming, XML files and even LINQ.

The book finally finishes with how to deploy your application.

I eagerly await ASP.NET 3.5 using C# due out in September...

Buy this book, you will not be dissapointed if you need an introduction to C# or brush up on some new skills.

I really enjoyed working through this book. I just wish there was a part 2 as despite it's size it is only an introduction to the subject.

I found it easy to follow with clear explanations on the various topics. The little application you work on is not very exciting unfortunately but it suffices to make the points in the exercises.
