What is this book about?

With Beginning Visual C#, you will learn how to use Visual C# from first principles. Visual C# is an object-oriented programming language designed specifically for programming Microsoft's new platform, the .NET Framework. You'll quickly and easily learn how to write Visual C# code and create your own applications — for both Windows and the Web.

What does this book cover?

With clear explanations and hands-on examples, you will learn about the following topics:

  • The C# language from the ground up
  • Designing and writing object-oriented programs
  • .NET programming with C#
  • Working with Windows forms and controls
  • Creating graphics and printing
  • Accessing databases and files
  • Writing web application and web services in Visual C#

This book will be an indispensable guide as you learn to write C# programs, gradually explaining the key concepts of Visual C# and .NET as your skills develop, with exercises at the end of chapters to test yourself. Starting with a thorough tutorial of the Visual C# language and object-oriented programming, you will progress to learn how to apply your understanding to programming the .NET Framework.

Who is this book for?

Beginning Visual C# is ideal for beginners with little background in programming, and for relatively inexperienced programmers who want to move from a language that doesn't support object-oriented programming techniques. The book moves at a fast enough pace that if you have programmed in another language, then you will still find the book valuable.

What do you need to use this book?

Note that Beginning Visual C# requires you to have access to either Visual Studio .NET or Visual C# .NET Standard Edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not a beginners book Jan. 1 2006
Format:Paperback
I have only Structured programming experience and I am taking a C# course and this is the book subscribed by the curriculum. This book is completely useless as illiustrations and examples are very useless and topics are not clearly explained. Please do not picks this book, if you are a beginner to C#.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Detailed and Enjoyable Book! July 16 2004
Format:Paperback
I've bought many C-Sharp books and I must say., this book is awesome! Where as in other beginning books a lot of details are missing -this book is fine tunned and includes many details about the C# language that are just simply not covered in other books! This book is enjoyable and keeps you thinking.

1.0 out of 5 stars All over the place and not a beginner book May 5 2004
Format:Paperback
I'm not from a publishing company or anybody affiliated with other books, thus right of the bat I am not going to recommend any other C# book, since I ordered one, but am waiting to review it.
First of all my background is COBOL for 15 years and have dabbled with VB 6.0, so I wanted to dive into the world of OO programming and threw my hat into C# instead of JAVA and was looking for a TRUE Beginning book that wasn't too trivial but wasn't an intermediate book as well.
As far as this book, there are some people who know the language, but cannot teach others the basics and that is where this author falls into.
It goes all over the place instead of starting with the very basics and building an application where at the end of the book you can actually use the application and learn from it.
I picked up this book off a suggestion that Wrox books are very good, well this one is a dud.
The author doesn't even get into Windows Programming until half way through the book, which I had thought C# was primarly used for (albeit ASP.NET as well).
This book was written for somebody oriented with other OO languages (JAVA, C++) and was switching over.
I wanted a book written for a technical person who has some programming background, but not so easy and basic as the "For Dummies" or "Teach Yourself in 21 days".
The title fools you into believing it is for a Beginner, but buyer beware !!..The best way to really pick a book is to go to a Borders or Barnes and Noble and sit down for an hour or so and read it to see the authors writing style to see if it fits your learning style.
I am getting Murachs C# book, just because I had their Mainframe books which were good, so once I read the Murach book, I'll also write an honest review for those interested or you can go to your local bookstore and review it to form your own opinion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow + No answers to exercises May 4 2004
Format:Paperback
This book is quite easy to read for a beginner. However, for a true beginner who needs to check answers to the exercises provided in the book...well, that's another story. The authors forgot who their audience is and just like that they decided not to provide answers to the exercises given at the end of the chapters. This made the book quite a bit challenging for me, and the so called "P2P" forums in the publisher's website are many times not useful at all. Before buying this book, browse through all of the complaints posted in these "P2P" forums and you'll know what I'm talking about.
Otherwise, the book is presented in a fairly comprehensive way for a beginner to understand.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not That Great April 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I don't understand why the other reviewers are so positive about this book. It's drier than crackers in the Sahara and it spends way too much time on Windows Forms. It also assumes you're very familiar with VS.NET. A "Beginning" book should do a lot more hand-holding than this book does. In summary, I hated it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book for beginners April 17 2004
Format:Paperback
I've read the first ten chapters of this book and I think its one of the best Wrox books I own. The author says you don't need any prior programming experience, but it sure helps if you do. The books covers everything, but it's tough reading for someone new to Object Oriented Programming (OOP) - I come from an ASP and JavaScript background. The only problem I have with this book is that the answers to the questions at the end of the chapters are missing from the Wrox web site (Wiley Publishing is the new owner), which is a real shame for a book this good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hey, Karli. Get a haircut ! April 12 2004
Format:Paperback
Is this really the best way to learn C#? Chapter after bloody chapter about the nuts & bolts of every variable type, class contruct and OOP concept. The reader tests their new-found knowledge building console apps until Forms are mercifully introduced on page 340.
I think a much better way to learn is to start with a simple form app (like "Hello, World") and introduce new material step-by-step.
Not that this is a bad book. Hustler magazine doesn't show this level of detail. The authors explore every nook & crevice of a subject and there are plenty of code snippets to illustrate each new concept.
This could be a good companion book. But not a first book. If you want to get off the ground quickly, start with "Windows Forms Programming in C#" by Chris Sells. Otherwise, this book will keep you on the launch pad for months.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ek Dam Chakkaass March 19 2004
Format:Paperback
Well, don't worry, the title of this review are only for Bomboits( Mumbai India). This book is really really good.
If you want to learn C# using Visual Studio.NET this book is for you. Remember I said Visual Studio.NET and again Visual Studio.NET, and that's why I am giving it 5 stars(Amazon.com has only five stars for the highest ratings) . I don't know of any software development company who would hire you to program in C# and without using Visual Studio.NET.So this book is for professional programmers , REMEMBER professional programmer use RAD tools to program.
