Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

During the last 30 years, many customers have asked me how it is that a small publisher in Fresno can make the best programming books. The short answer is that no other publisher works the way we do.

Instead of using freelance writers who get no training, we use a small staff of programmers who are trained in our proven writing and teaching methods. Instead of publishing 40+ books each year, we focus on just a few. Instead of showing pieces of code, we provide complete applications that have been checked and re-checked for accuracy. And instead of rushing books to market, we refuse to let schedule or budget interfere with quality. As I see it, that’s the only way to make sure that every book we publish is the best one on its subject.

That’s why I say that no other ASP.NET 2.0 book will teach you so much, so fast, or so thoroughly as ours will. Try it and see for yourself! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I would recommend this book to anyone trying to learn ASP.
J. Bonner
I'm not giving this book three stars because, in my opinion, it is not built for beginners to ASP.
Alpine Mike
So you can read the explanation, which is very well written, and then recap with the description.

I noticed many of the reviews are for older editions to this book. Murach's ASP.NET programming books have been around for quite a while, with this one being the 4th edition. ASP.NET 4 was released a little over a year ago (April 2010, I believe). This book's release date shows April of this year (2011). So the older reviews might be helpful for a background on the book, but look for reviews after April 2011 for this book alone.
That being said, I have read many Murach's books over the years. They seem to follow a certain style. This one is no different.

The book takes the reader through building a website, while at the same time teaching the various aspects involved. Think the style is very useful for beginners and people coming over to the .NET framework as it applies to the web.
Because the reader is building a website, they get into areas that are not necessarily ASP.NET, such HTML, CSS and SQL. Still, they are areas that any .NET web developer should know.

The book is full of useful information on various topics that are helpful in the everyday world of web development. Topics like, forcing a page to use a secure connection, creating and handling shopping carts, handling back-button problems.

The chapter on AJAX was good with regards to the Microsoft's controls and how they work. With Microsoft including jQuery in with Visual Studio 2010 now, would have liked to see more of a discussion on jQuery had how it could have been used developing the book's website.
It is easy to pick up bits and pieces of ASP.NET 4, but this book endeavors to put it all together. I have liked Murach's books in the past and found this one to be of equal value.

Format: Paperback
This book is a comprehensive tutorial that walks the reader through the basics of virtually every aspect of Web site programming in ASP.NET 2.0. The first half of the book is dedicated in part to programmers new to Web programming in general, or new to Web programming ASP.NET. The second half of the book delves deeper into more professional Web development techniques such as database access, SSL, user authentication and profiles, and even touching on Web services and reusable Web component design. Throughout, the authors do a good job of pointing out features that are new or specific to .NET 2.0, which makes this a valuable reference even for programmers with extensive ASP.NET development experience.

For every two pages in the book (it weighs in at nearly 900 pages) the content is repeated once in classic Murach style; the left-hand page is a detailed description of the concept being covered written in a conversational tone, and the right-hand page contains a recap of this discussion in bulleted-form, with screenshots and / or code samples. This layout is ideal for both novice and expert readers alike; beginners learn faster when a concept is restated / repeated, and experts can skim through the right-hand pages looking for content that is new to them.

The authors assume that the reader has a working knowledge of C# syntax (there is a VB version as well), but pretty much everything else involved in Web site development using ASP .NET 2.0 is explained in detail.

Format: Paperback
If you're even thinking about this book, you have an interest in or a project to do regarding connecting a database to a web site. This could be something simple like putting in a guest book, or more complex like a full fledged store. ASP.NET is Microsoft's vision of how this should be done (using purely Microsoft products of course).

The Microsoft products used in the ASP.NET approach include the operating system (Windows - possibly XP Professional, more likely Windows Server), Internet Information Service (the web server), Visual Studio (the integrated development environment that includes C# - pronounced 'C Sharp'), and the database (probably SQL Server).

The book covers these software products. It uses the Murach two-page presentation where the left hand page gives a text description of an issue, and the right hand side a more visual description of the same issue. I happen to like this format a great deal. One page tends to say the same thing in a different way. Sometimes one way is preferred (preferred means that I understand it better), sometimes the other.

If you're serious about this subject, I think you also will need a book on the SQL language for the particular database you will be using. SQL is a programming language all by itself. If you just use ASP, you will be tempted to do things in ASP that would be better done in a more complex SQL statement.

A great book, not for the total computer novice, but if you're planning a web site and want dynamic pages that have data coming out of a web site ....

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read most of this book over a weekend and that's a first for me. Generally, computer books are dry and boring. I was yet to finish reading any of them in its entirety and I have been programming for over a decade. But this book uses a clever approach of giving you expanded information on a topic on a page (generally the left one) and a bulleted summary description on the opposite page. So you can read the explanation, which is very well written, and then recap with the description. Or you can skip the explanation all together and still undertand the concept. The examples are good and illustrate the concepts quite well. The only reason I give this book four starts instead of five is that the database for the examples was specific to the MSDE version of SQL Server. I have both SQL Server 2000 and 2005 developer edition and could not attach the database to any of them. I was forced to download MSDE from Microsoft and intall it on my system. A waste of space in my opinion. The author should make available versions of the database of a higher version of SQL Server. Other than that, I am very happy to own this book.
