Do you really have a choice?
on October 6, 2011
I didnt exactly love this book ... but you dont really have much of a choice when it comes to exam manuals ... Microsoft Learning books are much better but at the same time they don't cover everything you need for the exam in as straight forward a way as this book does.
If you just want to learn ASP.NET and dont actually intend to take the 70-515 exam ... this is still as good a book as you will find ... but the exercises do very little to actually TEACH you how to do things ... the demo disk inside is a requisite to understand the exercises more often then not.
As someone who was pretty green to programming (having just learned C# for three weeks prior to this in school) i found the exercises where not explained in a good way for me. But when you have no choice in books ... i guess you deal with what you got.
