A course, not a reference manual,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Head First C# (Paperback)
At last! A book that is designed for people to learn from.
Previously I had looked at various C# books and PDF books and they seemed to all take an approach analogous to learning English by reading a dictionary and a grammar guide.
This is superb. By the end of chapter 1 you've made a mini contacts database application.
A couple of chapters after that and you've made an animated "game".
And it's readable! This is the programming book I've been looking for.
I come from a VBA background, so programming isn't too scary, but object-oriented stuff was a bit of a mystery. I'm beginning to see the light, and I'm only up to chapter 7.
Someone deserves a medal for this book.
