Covers Not Only C# but Also .NET March 15 2006
By John Matlock - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a beginning, or perhaps intermediate level book on Microsoft's C# (C-Sharp) programming language used with the Microsoft .NET framework. It covers both the C# language and .NET at a beginner level. It is intended to be usable to everyone from people who have never programmed before to C++ programmers who want to learn the differences Microsoft has put into C#, and as an introduction to the .NET library of code.

As a beginning book, the examples can be programmed using the simpler (and FREE) 'Express' versions of both C# and Visual Studio. The book begins with a discussion of Visual Studio and how to use it. From there it goes on to a very simple console application that simply writes one line of text to the screen. And as you might guess, by the end of the 778 page book, the programs have gotten somewhat more complex.

This kind of programming book covers almost exactly the same material of other beginning books on C#. I find that I like the tone, the style of writing, and the completeness of this book better than a lot of others.

Excellent book Jan. 14 2008
By Abu Saa Leonard - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book is great for those who have a base knowledge of c# programming but also want to improove their skills. Although it says beginning C# 2005, this book is not for those who want to write their first program.
In covers all basic needs of a junior programmer in order to allow him to experiment and create new programs.

Bettter than the Pro version June 16 2007
By Ron L. Vincent - Published on
Format: Paperback
Even though this is the beginning book it's better than the Pro C# 2005 book written by some of the same authors. I read this book first and the Pro version second. I found that it explains many of the concepts in a more effective way with less words.

I just got a job programming in C## and needed a good review. This book was perfect for that! Thank you.
Nails the theory and concepts but fails on the examples. Jan. 4 2011
By DK - Published on
The examples are somewhat jumbled. There's never a full view of the program and he often uses variables or methods before he defines them. It's like he creates it, then explains it in reverse.
