I am an experienced ASP.NET programmer. however, I've had no formal ASP.NET training. Everything I learned was OJT.
I thought that it would be beneficial to update my level of ASP.NET to be able to work with current programming technology and also to improve my baseline knowledge of ASP.NET in general. This book more than meets my expectations. It proceeds in a very logical way, introducing concepts, allowing practice to "Try It Out", followed by an explanation of how it works and some exercises and questions to reinforce what you just learned.
The pace of this book is excellent. It covers topics in detail without wasting time and includes plenty of opportunities to put what you learn into practice.
I've already learned a great deal and I'm impressed with this author! I'd recommend this book to anyone interested!

A very good book that works as an introduction into web development. The book is very detailed oriented and unlike so many code downloads of other books that I have bought in the past, I haven't had too many issues with the code being able to run and do what it is supposed to do. There is some configuration involved but for the most part the author pretty much holds your hand and walks you through the examples, which is quite nice, which is totally unlike the other books that I have used where many times the code crashes the moment you try to run it for the first time. The author covers a broad range of topics but mainly his focus is database usability with the C# and VB in a ASP.NET 4.5 environment. He is also very good about answering questions in the p2p wrox forum. Most authors in the p2p forum never answer questions on their books. This guy takes a very pro-active approach to supporting his book, which is very refreshing. The only drawback to that is that he can get pretty cranky sometimes if you submit a question that he doesn't like or that he thinks isn't appropriate to the material covered in the book. I know that he has gotten crosswise with me on numerous occassions when I have posted questions in the forum that he doesn't deem appropriate to the forum or that he doesn't like. But other than that, I recommend this book to anyone who wants a really good jumpstart into the world of ASP.NET 4.5 computing and web development. It is a whole heck of a lot better than the dummies book or the SAMS or Sitepoint books in my opinion. I have even taken the time out to recommend this book to many of my fellow students and instructors in my iPhone and Android software development classes that I took just recently.Read more ›

I am a intermediate Python, C, C++, PHP programmer, but never touch ASP.NET before and my employer gave me a project to improve his ASP.NET website. Eventually I chose this book and very happy with it.

This book show me how to create a website step by step. Easy to following along. There are some exercises at the end of each chapter. This make sure I understand things well if I can answer all of them. Author also suggest me his forum, where I can ask question If I have a problem. There are many programmers there to help me. I will go there when I need their help.

Overall, very good book. I am waiting for Professional ASP.NET 4.5 in C# and VB, that will be released very soon.

This is a long review so that people serious about buying such a book can make an informed decision about this book.

I regularly use self-paced learning books. This was singularly the finest self-paced tutorial book I have ever read. The author is the reason.

Imar is a natural and tireless teacher who has worked hard to provide meaningful and accurate material. Beyond that, throughout the book he gently expands the reader's knowledge with different techniques to do things without overwhelming the reader while they are learning the broader themes of ASP.NET. He is very thorough with great depth.

Not only does the book take someone from 'zero to sixty' regarding ASP.NET, it also briefly but very reasonably reviews Visual Studio, object oriented programming, JavaScript, JQuery, the incredible Entity Framework and database principles necessary to support efficient website creation. Detailed and accurate help is provided to get the required software installed on your machine. And while Visual Studio/ASP.NET is certainly not the only way to go, one needs to accept that it is indeed a potent and efficient combination made even more so by this book. In addition, sound programming principles are reinforced to remind the reader of the importance of organized and encapsulated techniques so important to today's programming environment to achieve consistency in a finished software project. The inclusion of both VB and C# is transparent and does not detract from the reading. I think it's great both languages are included so both 'camps' have access to this excellent work.

Although I would fairly classify myself as technically oriented, before this book my knowledge of websites was effectively limited to visiting them.
