ASP.NET MVC 1.0
If you have a background in .NET and ASP.NET and are seeking to learn ASP.NET MVC, then this is the book for you. Relying heavily on MVC concepts, ASP.NET MVC principles, and code to demonstrate the main content, this valuable resource walks you through the necessary components to solve real-world problems.
A clear and straightforward writing style offers a pragmatic approach so that you can learn the material at your own pace. You'll review all aspects of ASP.NET MVC, and all the topics are explored for the final version of Microsoft ASP.NET MVC 1.0. Two real-world case studies showcase the theoretical concepts that the authors discuss throughout the book, and all sample code uses the most up-to-date Microsoft technologies to familiarize you with current development approaches. By the end of the book, you'll have a firm grasp of ASP.NET principles and how to apply them to maximize the potential of this exciting new framework.

Beginning ASP.NET MVC drove me through the new way of making THE WEB with the MVC pattern in the .NET World.
Simone and Keyvan start with Chapters regarding all the basic building blocks of ASP.NET MVC (from what a Model/ a View / a Controller are, to ActionFilters, ActionControllers and so on) with very clever examples.
Every chapter starts with the assumption the reader has no knowledge about such topic and, at the end, makes you aware of what that piece is and how to use it in next chapters.
I've been ready in less than 2 weeks with my first real-world (simple) Application...and I neither finished the book at that time!
The book also covers technologies an "ASP.NET MVC Starter" should know about to let a Web Application works: Ajax, Security (Authentication - Authorization).
Final Chapters get the reader a basic but good idea on how to extend ASP.NET MVC and how to use it in the real world following a couple of
All chapters are pushing the reader thru the Test-Driven Development methodology: the way of programming ASP.NET MVC has been though on.
Very practical but won't leave you without theoretical topics in mind.
It is my definitive MVC Reference even now I feel more "comfortable" with this new Technology: it covers all I need for a good Web Application.
Personal Experience and gain in knowledge: EXCELLENT; one of the best technical book I ever read.
This book is more oriented towards the ASP.NET WebForms programmer who are trying to make the transition to
ASP.NET MVC way of programming. Having said that anyone - even those who have not done ASP.NET WebForms
programming - can understand the concept and can get going. The book explains things gradually step by step so
that any body can understand it. The book also contains "Try it out" sessions where the sources are given
first and then explained later by highlighted code. The highlighted code reinforce the new concepts we just
got introduced to. The book also provides exercises to do at the end of each chapter and the solutions are
provided in Appendix B in case you are struck with your solution. In short this book covers everything a MVC
beginner programmer needs to know.
Sometimes I wish the authors are precise and not very eloborate - but I guess the authors wanted to make sure
that the beginner gets the concepts right and so were very eloborate.
This is where Beginning ASP.NET MVC really excels. The book starts off with the usual form of describing the MVC pattern, and then delves into describing how each part relates to the ASP.NET MVC framework. It then moves into more advanced topics such as routing and testing of ASP.NET MVC applications. Don't let the title fool you though, after it gives you a nice slow ramp up into ASP.NET MVC basics, it then gives you a thorough and complete look into the more advanced aspects of the framework.
So, if you need to get up to speed on ASP.NET MVC quickly and without having to dig through a ton of unrelated fluff, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Beginner ASP.NET MVC. You'll enjoy it!
Near the end of the book, some case studies are discussed: first a blog engine is built from ground up. The second case study is about building a photo gallery application.
If you need a book which gives you the basics and some more advanced topics, Beginning ASP.NET MVC 1.0 is really for you. I liked reading it, and Simone and Keyvan have done a great job in explaining all there is to the great ASP.NET MVC framework. Looking forward to read more books by these guys!
