Overall I think this book makes a good reference. In chapter 7, I like the point about being careful to invalidate the enumerator if the underlying data gets changed. However, be aware the example has a "lapsed listener" problem. When the enumerator object is no longer needed, how is it supposed to be unsubscribed from the Changed event? If it never gets unsubscribed, then the garbage collector will not be able to remove it from the heap, thus you end up with a memory leak. Using System.WeakReference is one way to solve this problem.

I have read in the reviews of this book that it's geared towards the intermediate/advanced developer. I disagree! This book is orientated towards the beginner. If you're a seasoned professional in a language such as VC++, then I recommend that you bypass this poorly written book as you'll be done with it in a few weeks!

I've been reading this book becuase I needed a book that also talked about how use the parts of visualstudio like the windows forms controls and making web services. There's about 1/3 of the book on windows forms after the part anout using the language. i also have another book about just the c# language, but this one is good too. The way it automatically adds new infos to the online help is good too.

This book lost the ground of its course. Not good enough on C#, very little .Net framework, and gives only simple things about Windows programming and other key areas. One of the two big problems is beginner can't use the book. It's very difficult to follow it. There's no complete codes and instructions to get the pictures of the samples.
The other big problem is it's too simple for experienced programmer. They can't get any decent lessons, or tips. What a reference!
Obviously the auther had not much experience in developing applications, and poor teaching.
Microsoft needs to clean dead woods to keep reputation. They needs to publish good books link Thinking in Java, Java Swing. Not bunch of Core Reference craps.

The first couple of chapters gave a decent introduction to C#, but later on the book strayed away to include things like ado.net, windows forms, etc. Not that there is anything inherently wrong with this, but the author utterly failed to make these *extra* chapters a value-add.
If you think about it, the c# language itself is a large enough topic, as are ado.net, windows forms, web forms etc. It's a herculean task to single-handedly pack them all into one title and cover everthing well. The author is apparently stretching himself too thin by taking on such a big assignment, and could have done a much better job by sticking to c# itself.

Format: Hardcover
Examples are poor and there is little information that you couldn't easily find on help. Help actually provides more info than this waste of time. This is supposed to be a core reference but all references are quite incomplete. For example if you look at this book, examine the DataGrid control sub-chapter and see if it provides enough information to actually write, or use a data grid control. This book is useless.

I've been using C# for 3 years, but purchased this book hoping to glean some new stuff on C# and .NET. Boy, was I disappointed. I own many MS Press titles from Richter, Petzold, Prosise, etc. and have been ecstatic about them all. However, this author definitely is not included in that list and shouldn't be writing professional books. I know that he used to write the "dummies" level books and it definitely shows in this attempt. The information is nothing short of a rehashing of MSDN material with absolutely nothing added. Very disappointing.
