Customer Review

on 28 June 2005
A number of people had input into this book which lends itself to unnecessary repetition, but worse than that the intended audience viers between advanced to novice with incredible frequency:-
One minute you're being walked through the subtleties of OO programming and the next you're being told that there is a special place in the computer's memory called the heap. The examples are both too simple and assume too much early on - you actually 'start programming' till chapter 6 but you kind of need to know how to understand the code to follow the examples earlier on.
On the plus side there is plenty of explanation of what .Net is and what separates it from the pack. It is also a good reference book. From the confused structure it helps if you know a bit about OO before reading this or you would have to read chapters 1-7 a couple of times and in different orders to begin.
One other thing to bear in mind is that the exmples are a bit out of date because of the changes made to .Net for the final release. Again this will only confuse inexperienced developers.
- overall 3 stars is as much as it deserves...
