I had all but given up on CE after struggling with the miserable VB CE kit on and off for several years, till I opened up Burdick's book and tried several of his programs. I was astounded! They all worked flawlessly and I was off to a start with CE and C development. I'm by no means an expert at C but had no problems in following the code examples and getting some serious applications to work. I've looked at some other CE programming books but I really wouldn't be without this one.

I recently had a chance to review this book. It's very normal. I've been doing WinCE for 4 yrs, can't find anything up-to-date in this book. Any WIN32 programmer will feel the same.
Features happen to latest Windows CE 3.0 are not mentioned. No Pocket PC stuff either. You can't find useful stuff for programming Shell, Today's APIs and upside down User Interface. To be able to get updated programming information, MSDN and SDK help are your best bet.

Robert Burdick's "Microsoft Windows CE Programmer's Guide is more than a guide. It is an indispensable reference. The introduction had the overview I needed to understand Windows CE and how I can use it. This is a book that assumes you understand programming, but is easy to understand and use. The chapters are in logical order, but can also be used for ready reference. The enclosed CD has the emulation software, Microsoft's online help and programmer's reference as well as the device driver kit and other useful documentation. I'd recommend it to anyone who is (or wants to be) a CE coder.

Most of the book is a rewording of the Douglas Boling book on the same subject. If you have that book (which is much better) this book will be mostly a rehashing of the same material. This book attempts to give information that the Boling book doesn't cover on Custom Draw (Tree Controls, etc), the HTML viewer control and Active Sync and a few other minor topics. Unfortunately, the MSDN articles on these topics are actually better then the authors coverage of them.

This is the clearest, best Windows CE programming book to date. The desktop connectivity examples alone are worth the price of the book.
