The book itself is very good, starts off with an overview of where C# fits in .NET and then proceeds to cover the elements of C# as a language and how the language elements fit into .NET. The style of writing keeps you interested
The following sections then cover .NET in greater detail and how the individual classes can be used.
The book is a very technical book and does not spend time on how to write loops or the benefits of object orientation. Instead it is a book on how to use the C# language in the .NET environment (which can include other operating systems)
I have an earlier edition,Pro C# with .net 3.0, and there is a lot of original, but re-worked, material in this edition.
New stuff as well though, including a very small but on Xamarin.
The book is large and heavy, and in my opinion could be split into two smaller books.
Andrew knows the material very well and pretty much covers everything you need to know.
The book is Full of example code that you can enter, or just download from the publisher Web site.
This book is not recommended for beginner programmers, but those who know how to program and who want to know more about C# and the latest version of.Net
You can even download the exercises as Visual Studio solutions, from Apress website. Very cool!
With the release of C# 6 and .NET 4.6 I would not recommend purchasing a now out-of-date textbook, though.
The code in the book can be typed directly into your .net compiler or downloaded from the Apress site. The author uses Microsoft's compiler, he does discuss others at the start of the book. For those that are using visual express, there are some functions like the class designer that is not shipped with the free edition so you won't be able to practice that functionality but it's really not a issue.
