Format: Paperback
I ordered this book to help me migrate from development on Linux to development on Windows CE. I found errors in the first 10 minutes of reading! (Page 249, 1/986 and 1/147 are both wrong. Refer to the NMEA 0183 spec for details.)
Between the errors, the lack of coverage of PPC2002, and the blatent omission of anything interface specific, my recommendation is to wait for another book to get published. Especially if you want something that covers GUI - this does not.
Unfortunately, I must also say that this is the best book out there, at least that I've been able to find (WinCE/eVC++). So I guess that makes it a winner! ....but only by default.

This book is a great Windows CE reference. The material and examples are comprehensive, clear and concise. But do not use it as an introduction to eVC++ because there is virtually nothing on the user interface or the basics of MFC. If you are a C++ or VC++ programmer, and you want to become functional in a hurry with Windows CE 3.0, I strongly recommend it. Also, unlike a previous reviewer, I found the author to be very responsive to questions.

Book is written in an intelligent manner, so you get what you need - the essential. Other Win CE authors tell you what they know, this book tells you what you need to know.

Good book if you want to know about Win CE API Programming. Nothing about eVC++, eVB and UI which makes its content very poor. It should have been titled WIN CE API...

I've found this book to be very handy, it covers many different sections of WinCE programming and is a great reference book. Its not a book your going to read from cover to cover, but its the one your going to grab when your sitting in front of your latest WinCE app and something isn't compiling correctly. As for WinCE 3.0 support, I haven't had a single problem getting any of the demo code to work on ANY WinCE 3.0 device.
