To anyone that does not understand what I mean, let me explain.
You can buy the boxed edition of Visual Studio VB.net (it costs about $100). It offers a very nice programming environment (IDE) that makes it easy to create windows AND web applications. The web applications are asp.net apps.
However, if you are looking for asp.net application development ONLY, you don't need the full version of visual studio .net You can go to the Microsoft website and download everything you need to get up and developing with asp.net. This book addresses this situation. As the previous review points out, this book really doesn't use the VB IDE to create the example programs.
The books is well written and I would recommend it for anyone looking to get started with asp.net who doesn't have the Visual Studio edition.
But, I still think the title is a little misleading.
Since you don't need Visual Studio.NET to create ASP.NET pages explains why 99% of the books that I have encountered about ASP.NET don't teach from that perspective as well. Other than that, it is very good book.
The general format and layout of the book is classic Wrox. I own many Wrox books and have substantially enhanced my IT career with these books and highly recommend most of them. This book is no exception and is definitely a beginner's book, covering all the basics and then going in-depth into a few nuts and bolts (but never getting too technical).
I recommend this book to brand new programmers. Classic ASP programmers should pick up the MS Press book ASP.NET Programming with VB.NET, Step By Step.
