5.0 out of 5 stars Great Beginners Book ! March 20 2006
By Brian from Saratoga, NY - Published on Amazon.com
I interrupted my online C# education to study and work with this book. It was well worth it, since it turned out to satisfyingly detailed, yet covered each function in a move-along fashion.

The only negative is that some of the print was thinner/smaller font than it should be for my old eyes, but that enabled the above-mentioned detail. This is more than make up for by the colorful presentation, and clearly written text, and, most of all, the solid examples and exercises. I LEARNED A LOT!

You can't go wrong with this book. After completing it, I went to the bookstore and reviewed other thicker books. Boy, was I happy I started with this. Ah, well, now back to my online tutorials from Microsoft.

4.0 out of 5 stars express is neat Jan. 20 2006
By William Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Negatively the sidebar examples can at times clutter the

page and the type in them is too small for comfortable


On the other hand nice abundant use of color and the main text is alright. Unlike previous books on C# does not require an

install of the pricey Visual Studio because has an express edition of its software.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good choice for beginners Jan. 12 2006
By Randal Root - Published on Amazon.com
I thought this book was easy to read, colorful, and practical. The learn-by-doing approach really works well and the fact that they included a copy of C# Express saves you a long download. Well worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a beginner. Oct. 27 2006
By gr Haynes - Published on Amazon.com
As a beginner, I thought that the author's approach was both respectful and thoughtful. The examples are easy to follow and understand and the book is well organized. Although this book can't be considered to be a reference book, it certainly is an excellent way to learn the basics of the C# language. It's a fun and useful book, and I highly recommend it.

I got this for my Nephew who is 16 and wanted to try programming. This book was really good for him since he has had very little exposure to the "behind the scenes" of computers and software. He was able to write his first program right away which got him pretty excited about it.
