1.0 out of 5 stars Does NOT use VB.NET 2003 June 23 2004
By Skippy
Format:Paperback
I am amazed that Wrox (AKA Wiley Publishing) would title a book in such a deceptive manner.
Purchased the book and first thing I did was read "What you need to use this book?" - it clearly states "You do not need Visual Studio.NET in order to use this book." Instead - they expect you to download something called a Web Matrix...
Sure - it uses the .NET framework 1.1 but to me, and I am sure the vast majority of developers, if one sees "with VB.NET 2003" they are not expecting to be taught how to write code in Notepad...
Wrox - You have disappointed me

4.0 out of 5 stars Complain Complain Complain June 23 2004
Format:Paperback
I almost didn't buy this book, because the reviews I had read of it here on Amazon were absolutely hideous. But, the price was right and it covers the subject(s) I need to know, and I had been satisfied with Wiley books before (see "Big Java"). Anyway, I'm on Chapter 5, and I would just like to state that, yes, there are mistakes, typos, you name it. Do they degrade the book's quality? Not in the slighest. This is already one of the best computer book purchases I have ever made. The only complaint I have about it is that it's a little dry--yes I know it's a Computer Science book, but still. But as far as the editing goes, it's not that bad. It's fairly easy to understand what they're saying, and in the few places there's a line that doesn't belong there, you can check on it, cross it out, move on with your life. This book is great, and despite what I have also read here, knows its target audience well--and its audience is old-school static HTML developers. The examples are great, the explinations thorough (sometimes too thorough). This is a great, inexpensive book for someone looking to learn both ASP.NET and VB.NET at the same time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for Visual studio users April 28 2004
Format:Paperback
You'll find it extremely difficult to apply the examples in visual studio.net.
Some of the databases are missing from the downloaded code such as WroxDBAuth.mdb mentioned in chapter 17.
Many errors for example: the access database used in chapter 17 is missing the "SiteAdminLevel" field in the players table (mentioned in the example) and misnamed in the SQL version ("AdminLevel"). As a beginner such errors could take me hours to figure out, never mind the frustration associated with it. So why the four stars? You might ask? Because of the knowledge I gained. Regardless of the errors, this book is very valuable especially if you are intending to use Web matrix.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book. April 23 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The other reviewers stating there are many errors in this book are exaggerating the case. I found a few errors as is to be expected from any technical book but I also found a lively discussion at the Wrox web site forums where many other readers and the authors gladly helped each other answer questions about the book and even general ASP.NET questions that we not specific to the book. All in all, I learned a lot from these authors.

3.0 out of 5 stars Written by illiterates? April 8 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
There are more errors in this book than I've ever seen in any other. Typos, inconsistencies... The code seems to be fine, but it's VERY distracting when you're reading to notice all these errors; and it's not a particularly good feeling to know that by making a purchase you're supporting sloppy publishing such as this. Wrox should really be embarrassed of this one.
