HASH(0x9e817894) out of 5 stars Great Productivity Enhancer June 24 2006
By Kennon McCaa - Published on
Verified Purchase
This is a very useful book at a fair price. Your improved productivity will pay for this book 10 times over.

The book could be improved if the author made the following changes:

1) Do not print it on recycled pizza boxes. The paper quality is terrible and makes it hard to read because you cannot tell and H from an 11, etc.

2) Start each tip with a little set of icons that show which version of VS each tip applies to. I was frequently disappointed that at the end of a 2 page explanation the final sentence would say, "This feature is only available in C# for VS 2002." Obviously, for someone programming in VB.Net for VS 2005 it would have been really nice to know this BEFORE I read the 2 pages.

Other than that the book is great. It is a quick read and with a few short hours of easy reading you will be a much more productive programmer.

BTW, the "Hacks" book from O'Reilly contains about 80% of the tips that are in this book, nevertheless I am glad I bought both.

HASH(0x9e82b714) out of 5 stars My favorite kind of book Jan. 9 2005
By Daniel Robbins - Published on

This book is a great value, and the author is a good writer. This is my favorite kind of book -- the kind that helps you to be much more productive within a few minutes of casual reading.

Most general-purpose .NET programming books only cover the bare essentials of what you need to know about Visual Studio .NET 2003/2005 in order to complete the programming task at hand.

This book picks up where those books leave off, and pays for itself within the first 5 minutes of reading due to resultant productivity gains within Visual Studio .NET 2003/2005.

For newcomers to Visual Studio .NET, this book is highly recommended. I even recommend it for experts of Visual Studio .NET -- even if you know most of the tips and tricks in this book, there will probably be some that you don't that will by themselves justify the cost of the book. Experts will also inevitably run into someone who is learning Visual Studio .NET, and this is an ideal book to have on hand to lend to such a person.

HASH(0x9e81bb28) out of 5 stars Excellent to begin with VS.NET March 13 2006
By Gene - Published on

This rather short book has a lot of insightful tips and tricks for VS.NET. Mostly it covers VS 2003 but a lot of tips is also applicable to VS 2005. The level of tips ranges from beginner to average, and I wish I had this book back when I started working with VS.NET. But even now after years of everyday experience with the product I still found a number of features I either didn't know about or didn't use their full potential.

HASH(0x9e8ae2dc) out of 5 stars Excellent ! April 25 2005
By David Densmore - Published on
A handy book of Tips and Tricks, just as the title says. Keep it on hand because you will use it alot. Every .NET developer should have this book. At slightly over 100 pages, it is concise and easy to navigate.

HASH(0xa0e28228) out of 5 stars Nice book Jan. 12 2005
By Maciej Pietruszka - Published on
It's very handy book!

I found everything what I was searching for!

Now I can use VS much more efficently!

I give 4 stars(not 5) because of price - to high for me...

Besides, It's very good book - if you are going to be professional developer you should have it on your desk!
