5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for starting a developer career, 23 Jun 2014
This review is from: SharePoint 2010 Development For Dummies (Paperback)
This book is written by an expert and if you go to you will find a lot of great reviews. I'm using the book in preparation for a Microsoft certification but also use a lot of other books and video training for that test. In short, this book is really great if you are new with SharePoint 2010 development and wish to get a good overview.

It has a lot of excercises that are easy to follow along with. I have read other dummies books that are full of jokes and text that just don't belong there, but this book is more technical and focus on the subject itself.

I used SharePoint 2010 Server for the labs (foundation would be ok too I suppose) on a virtual machine (Oracle VM VirtualBox) that ran Win2008 Server R2 Evaluation and that worked fine for me. You also need some Office apps to do some of the labs but they can be downloaded as legal and free evaluations from the web if you don't have them already.

The book don't take up how to install SharePoint 2010 Foundation or Server so check YouTube or buy another book if you need help with that. Good job with the book :-) A +++++++++
