1.0 out of 5 stars Not done very well Nov. 28 2005
By tdm00 - Published on Amazon.com
I'm completely new at ASP.NET let alone ASP.NET 2.0, so I picked this book up instead of the Introducing ASP.NET 2.0 book by MS Press. I found this book to be poorly done.

The first 5 chapters, I feel, are WAY over the head of anyone starting to work with ASP.NET. Compostie and Render controls in the first 5 chapters? Hello, how about starting with the validation controls or something. The later chapters deal some with TreeView, MasterPages and Skins, stuff I felt should have been somewhere in the first chapters.

I would not recommend this book at all. It is also only in C# code, you have to download the VB examples, but not VB text.

1.0 out of 5 stars This book is USELESS... Nov. 16 2005
By B. Hayat - Published on Amazon.com
Don't waste your money and time on this book.

I can't believe someone actually allowed this book to be published as "Step By Step". It seems the intention of writing this book was just to get something out or the author has no idea how to write a "Step By Step" book.

The first three chapters are basically about the history of Web development and how ASP.Net is better. Then suddenly, in chapter four, he jumps into "Custom Rendered Controls". With a few short descriptions, he closes the chapter and the frustration begins. You begin to think, what is this chapter has anything to do with a "Step By Step" and do a project. Next he gets into "Composite Controls". He covers it in a hurry and it's to the next chapter. A very short overview of Validation, Treeview and MultiView.

You keep reading and thinking that I'm eventally going to get something going to finish a project. But you'll be building frustration than an ASP project.

This is by far the worst book I have ever read!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Step-By-Step Jan. 13 2006
By David C. Veeneman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is not a good learning resource for ASP.NET. I had expected a step-by-step book to begin by showing how to create a simple project, then progress to the cool features of ASP.NET and how to use them. Instead, this book starts with five chapters on web server architecture. That says about all that needs to be said about this book.

This is my second bad experience in a row with a Step-By-Step book. MS Press used to have a great series in these books; but if recent experience is any indication, the series has taken a big fall.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing Jan. 27 2006
By K. Rucker - Published on Amazon.com
While I did manage to learn a few ASP.Net basics, this book is not very well written. At least half examples were incomplete in illustrating how to accurately setup the applications. I was forced to find other sources which allowed me to discover the holes in the example setup descriptions. Reading this book proved to be a painful process. Considering how much I liked the VB and C# 2005 Step by Step books, this book was very disappointing. If your looking for an ASP.Net book, this is not it.

1.0 out of 5 stars not quite step by step Jan. 7 2006
By M. Farmer - Published on Amazon.com
Step by step, to me, assumes you will take the reader through a series of steps to accomplish a task or learn a skill. This book's content didn't seem to have a logical flow or feeling of steps at all. I felt so bogged down with the minutiae of how asp.net renders a page that the examples were useless and seemed thrown-in instead of supporting the content. Furthermore, the numerous typos made comprehending a challenge (we just finished helloworld.aspx and he calls it hello.aspx). To a beginner, these typos make navigating the content difficult. His examples also don't seem to follow suit with Visual Studio. In Visual Studio 2005 when you create a new HTML document, there is already quite a bit of text by default that describes DOCTYPE, etc. at the beginning of the document. His examples don't show this text. Remove it and you can get errors which start you troubleshooting and second guessing what is going on. And why take a beginner in this subject through ILDASM at the start? Quit trying to show off and start trying to teach. If the intent of this book was to be for beginners in the subject matter, it sorely misses the mark.
