5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book, 13 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is for the beginner and is a great introduction to programming in C#. You very quickly start writing and understanding code with self-help questions and a summary at the end of each chapter. There are also plenty of exercises.

This book is worth the money if you are seriously want to learn C#.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice and easy to use, 30 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think this is a very nice GPS indeed. I have found it to be quite accurate on the golf courses I have used it on. Why not 5 stars? A couple of reasons, firstly, changing between front, back and green centre could have been better and quicker and the buttons on the side a little difficult to find when you have the GolfBuddy on your cap. Also, be careful when looking for a golf ball and wandering onto an adjoining fairway. The GolfBuddy may detect the new hole (if you are close to the teeing area)and change the hole it relates to. You will end up having distances to the new hole and NOT the hole you are playing! Other than that, I think this was a good choice for me.

Oh yes, discovered an error on some hole numbers on my home course so reported it to GolfBuddy Europe but no response from them!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good, 10 Feb 2013

I have read all the books in this series and I would say that this wasn't the best of them. A good read though and I will read the next one.

Boot for RJ45 Ethernet Network Cables BLACK - Pack of 100 Boots
Offered by Rosenet Systems
Price: £7.96

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the best, 10 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As mentioned already, they are not very stiff but they are cheap. I wouldn't buy these again though as the smell is awful, like newly laid tarmac. It was so bad I left them in a bowl of pine floor cleaner but that didn't help. I will buy better quality next time.

This is the 9th instalment in the life of ranger Joe Pickett and his family. I wouldn't say it was his best but I enjoyed the read.


Netgear GS116 16-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Switch
Netgear GS116 16-Port Gigabit Unmanaged Switch
Price: £81.50

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 20 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this switch to replace a 24 port 10/100 that started playing up. I have noticed a speed increase on the network as most of the NICs are 1000 so the improved performance is nice to have.

Good product, good price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Lighted Leather Cover,, 21 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had to change my original cover (that didn't include the light) as the Kindle kept freezing. Amazon refunded the money and so I bought the lighted leather cover. It is just as good as original. I think it is imperative to have a cover as it protects and makes the Kindle feel even more like a book. The light has proved very useful.

This cover is a little thicker and heavier but does the job well.


Microsoft® Visual C#® 2008 Step by Step (PRO- Step by Step Developer)
Microsoft® Visual C#® 2008 Step by Step (PRO- Step by Step Developer)
by John Sharp
Edition: Paperback
Price: £24.99

3.0 out of 5 stars An OK book, 15 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is no doubt that the book will get someone up and running with C# but I found that some of the explications and examples confusing.

If you are new to programming I do not think you will be up and running as quickly as you would like and I believe you will be looking for better explications else where.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good starter book, 25 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think this is an excellent book to get started with ASP.NET. It leads you through the basics at a gentle pace but allows you to start creating your own website quickly. The text is easy to read and follow with useful exercises and questions at the end of the chapter to see if you have understood.

Databases doesn't start until the end of the book and though a little basic it makes for a good foundation for further reading.

A book well written with the beginner in mind.
