5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Book July 10 2005
By Randy Given - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is exceptional. I have been programming for quite a while, so some of these are old hat, but the presentation is well thought out, easy to follow, quick to learn. Just an exceptional book for this topic.

Not only do you get to use ADO.NET on Access, but SQL Server and/or Oracle, as well as ASP.NET and Web Services. All without breaking into a sweat.

I had a question about one thing and I posted on the Wrox forum for the book. The author himself responded very quickly and we got it straightened out (it was on my end, not the book). I printed out the errata, but there are few errors in the book. Just an all around excellent book.

p.s., oh, yeah, I bought two copies -- one for work and one for home.

2.0 out of 5 stars Run Away!!! Aug. 28 2007

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you want info now, don't buy this book. To get anything useful you have to read the whole the whole thing and do all the exercises. I prefer books that have many good clear examples that you can work through and learn from. I don't have time to use this type of book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good but .. June 1 2005
By S. Turki - Published on Amazon.com
Very good book for beginners but the drawback of this book can be summarized in 2 points:

1) ASP.NET 2.0 beta release had been announced and it fly with coding to the next level where you can get rid of 70% your code lines (according to Microsoft !, and this includes database classes and objects which changed dramatically in ASP.NET 2.0 . So, why to learn an old version ;).

2) I rated this book "4" stars, because some of the examples in this book are very long where you get bored before you see your result.
