Good summary and reference Nov. 27 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In the past year and a half I have purchased several Murach books on various programming subjects, and I find them to be quite helpful and I refer to them often. The format makes it easy to look up concise information and code snippets on specific topics. This book is no exception.

To remain a concise reference, there are bound to be omissions. For example, the text gives good information on the HTML structure of tables, but does not mention that a table may be added to a web form by using the drop-down menu in the Visual Studio IDE. On a positve note, the one page summary of regular expressions is the most helpful and useful summary of regular expressions that I have seen.

For professional programmers, this will not be the only book on ASP.NET that you will want in your library, but it is a very good concise reference.

For someone totally new to ASP.NET I would recommend reading
Beginning ASP.NET 3.5: In C# and VB (Programmer to Programmer) before moving on to the Murach book.

Don't purchase if you're new to .net and C# Dec 29 2009
By Chris Doyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm new to .net and also C# and I bought this book in hopes to learn the basics as well as more complicated applications as I get further into the book.

But it appears this book assumes you already have experience with both so you feel lost at times. For example, one of the very first exercises says to create a checkout page. It has 7 or so items they want you to do, but don't really give you any tips on how to accomplish them? If you get stuck you have no where to go, to look for help on the exercise. It wants you to add code to your pages, but I have no idea what the code will be!

As I've been reading this book, I feel like I jumped into an already started project and being asked to complete someone else work, and not sure how to do it.

This is the best reference book I have ever seen! May 25 2009
By Ju Ming - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I can't help writing the comments for this book after I read it. This book is the best reference book in ASP.NET I have ever seen.

First, if you have NO knowledge of ASP.NET or C# programming, it might be difficult for you to understand some of the concepts in the book. I think that is the reason some people give it a rating in 4.

THEREFORE, if you have NO knowledge of ASP.NET or C# programming, I highly recommend you to read some books like <ASP.NET for dummies> or <Head first, learning C#>, or <Apress, Beginning ASP.NET>.

HOWEVER, if you have read preliminary knowledge of ASP.NET and start to build your own website, NO BOOK IN THE MARKET right now can surpass the quality of this book when you use it as the reference. IT IS CONCISE, EASY TO READ, CLEAR TO THE DETAIL. IT can guarantee you to have a very good understanding of ASP.NET applications.

FINALLY, this book is also THE BEST REFERENCE book for people who may not read ENGLISH very well. English is not my first language. I can't master programming in ASP.NET without the help of THIS book. For Non-native speakers, DON'T BUY those RED COVER WILLEY BOOKS. I spend a lot of time reading them and doesn't help me a lot. TRY to buy a reference book also in your own language.

outstanding book Feb. 3 2009
By Chuck Easttom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I recently completed this book and I was quite impressed. I have been using asp.net for sometime and wanted to see the new features of VS 2008. What I consider the strongest points of this book are:
1. The book explains the basics so that a beginner can follow along and learn.
2. At the same time the book gives in depth 'why's' for various things (not just how's) so that the reader will finish the book with a reasonably deep understanding.
3. The book is replete with solid code samples, that all work as written (not always the case with all computer books)

I highly recomend this book.

Murach's ASP.NET 3.5/C# 2008 March 18 2009
By Frederick P. Blume - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This tutorial approach to learning the latest version of ASP.NET will get you up to speed in a hurry. The two-page text and graphical tactic which uses a two-pronged approach to learning from both auditory and visual channels - helps both types of learners absorb the material and each approach reinforces the other.
