I really loved this book! This book is so amazing, i don't know where to start!

You actually learn a LOTS in the book even if its a starting book for ASP.NET.
Actually, ive learned more than expected! This is the first time i buy a WROX book and
i am impressed!

I am a PHP web developper that wanted to learn ASP.NET so i already have a background
in web programming but you do not need to have a background in order to read this book!

It is so easy to read and the information is so interesting that each time you turn a page
you want to learn and know more !

Here, a list of the positive things i found about the book :

- Lots of great examples step by step with a section that explain you the whole process each time.
- Code are written in both C# and VB.NET.
- Very comprehensive writting.
- Very informative even if you are an advanced user in ASP.NET.
- The book cover a nice project which go from a subject to another easily.
- The book refers others book in the WROX collection which is useful if you wanna extend your knowledge later and
i really appreciate this cause sometime you never know where to look at after you've read a book! It refer to others place
if you want to dig into advanced subject later which is really great!
- After you've read the book you know how to make complete website using AJAX and JQUERY along with databases!
- Cover LOTS of subject, even cover AJAX and JQUERY.

Since nothing is perfect, i have only one constructive remark about the book :

- I know that this book is not intended to be a reference book but this still would be interessting
to have some reference section somewhere. This reference section could hold the important informations in a chapter so you
don't have to dig inside each page in order to get some important stuff that have been mentionned. But well this is not really
a problem but that would help from memorizing everything. But since its not a reference book this is not a problem at all!


If you looking to learn ASP.NET 4 and don't know where to start, get this book! Do not look anywhere else.. just GET this book!
I really recommand it !

I enjoyed this book very much however I found that the author having to reference both VB and C# was distracting, even sometimes confusing, and took away from the overall value of the book. I believe it would have been a much better book if it was just written for either C# or VB alone.

In the future this will be something I will take into consideration before I purchase another book.

This book is highly recommended for ASP.NET beginners. I really like how the lessons in this book are structured. Every topic starts with the EXPLANATION-> TRY IT OUT -> How it works. This way works with me and it is very easy to understand. I'm looking forward to read again this kind of book but this time with an advance programming methodologies version.
