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.
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!
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.
