I would strongly recommend this book for beginners in programming ASP.
buster
It skips over the typical "how to create a button" approach of most books and just covers the necessary information to really use some of the more interesting ASP.

I would recommend this book to programmers with classic ASP knowledge, all the way up to seasoned developers.

This is an excellent book on ASP.NET development. It skips over the typical "how to create a button" approach of most books and just covers the necessary information to really use some of the more interesting ASP.NET features including AJAX. Each of the controls that are covered also get a treatment for how to enhance them with AJAX.

The book also covers some of the unfamiliar areas of ASP.NET such as lifecycle management, caching, page and master directives and HTTP handlers. The book also spends quite a bit of time discussing the features that were added in v2.0 such as web parts and themes. This is missing in many books.

The only real flaw I see in the book is that it mentions v3.5 but in reality almost everything it covers is v2.0+. Someone who is only concerned with v2.0 might skip over this book but that would be a mistake. It contains enough information to be useful to anyone doing ASP.NET programming from v2.0 on. While it won't teach beginner ASP.NET folks how to write apps it will help those already familiar with the basics of ASP.NET to write impressive, performant apps under v2.0+.

I have been using ASP.NET for the better part of 1 year, so when I picked up this book I was skeptical. All I can say is that time invested reading this book is time well spent. I would recommend this book to programmers with classic ASP knowledge, all the way up to seasoned developers. The book covers many areas of ASP.NET programming and provides many good examples along the way, so you spend more time learning and less time trying to debug sample code. It has become my "go-to" reference when I am developing and it continues to help me increase my knowledge of ASP.NET. Some topics I found beneficial were AJAX, ASP.NET controls, State Management, ADO.NET, LINQ, Validation, Security, Web Services and WCF. Many of which I was able to integrate in production applications using this book. I highly recommend it!

Book review - "Programming ASP.NET 3.5, by Jesse Liberty, Dan Hurwitz and Dan Maharry.
ISBN-13: 978-0-596-52956-7

As a computer programmer and a big fan of Microsoft .NET programming technologies, I am always happy to read technical books. I have read several ASP.NET 3.5 technical books other than this one and what I have found is they all bring something useful to the table.
In this particular books case, it did a good job of discussing the various topics of ASP.NET 3.5. especially for those new to asp.net 3.5. it gives a broad overview of the entire ASP.NET programming platform as a whole.
Chapters 1 - 2 gave some good insights into using Visual Studio 2008 (the latest Microsoft programming environment at the time of the book's publication), IIS 7 (Microsoft's web server technology) and AJAX (a way of making very responsive web user interfaces). For newcomers to the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 environment, it gives simple step by step instructions on how to get started with the VS2008 programming environment.
Chapters 3-8 mainly deal with how to use the controls inherent in ASP.NET. Of particular interest (for me at least) would be the new object/xml and sql datasource controls which make connecting and binding to external data much easier. You can use the new datasource controls and bind them to members of the System.Web.UI.WebControls.BaseDataBoundControl's class. The author calls these controls "data aware controls". These types of databound controls are pretty special because you can manipulate database updates/inserts and deletes directly from "bound properties" of the controls. Pretty powerful stuff for easily making updateable web forms with minimal programming code.

Programming ASP.NET 3.5 by O'REILLY is a very good book for beginners. I dont know where to start! This book shows you from very basic things like how to use visual studio 2008 to create a form, drag a control and drop it into the form to connecting to databases programatically. This book is so detailed I always reference to the book for anything ASP.NET. O'REILLY did a very good job on this book my favorite chapter is chapter nine ADO.NET. I use this chapter as a reference to create my sql connections. Another good chapter is chapter seven Data Source Controls and Connections. This book is a must have for any beginner; it's a practical step by step guide to building your own ASP.NET web site. This is one of those rare books that show you C# for every step you make. I found it refreshing to see a book designed in this format.Thank you O'REILLY for this great book.

Excellent complement to MSDN docs. If you are familiar with the basics of ASP.NET development, and just need a book in a narrative format to explain / refresh whole concepts, this is perfect. I find myself starting with this book to really learn and understand what's going on, then referring to MSDN for more detail.

Too bad they don't have an ASP.NET 4 book... that's what I'm using it for. I actually have all of the Hurwitz / Liberty Oreilly books for ASP.NET, and they have been very helpful over the years.
