Customer Reviews

The examples are very easy to follow and straight forward.

My biggest problem (a HUGE one for me), is that it is entirely in VB - no C# to speak of.

This is one of the best technical reference/how to books I've read.

Format: Paperback
Sams Teach Yourself ASP.NET 4 in 24 Hours by Scott Mitchell is a terrific book. Scott teaches the reader ASP.NET 4 from a beginner's perspective and delivers on his promises. Going in to the book I had knowledge of VB.NET as a hobbyist, but wanted to get in to ASP.NET so I can create the next great website. Now that I have read through Scott's book, I am ready to code it and get it out there on the web.

Some people gave this book a low rating because they felt the author did not go in to many advance areas of ASP.NET. That is true. The issue I have with this is that the book never tries to pass itself off for anything higher than a beginner book. I suggest to anyone who is thinking about buying this book to read the back cover. Most programming books give you the User Level the reader should be at to fully utilize this book. The User Level for this book, right there on the back cover is Beginner. The back cover also lists out all of the topics covered in the book. I can vouch that they are all covered and covered quite well at that.

If you are looking for some more advance ASP.NET concepts, Scott does give you a link to each of these topics right in the book. I do agree with him most of the times when he states a topic may be a bit out of scope for the book, but then I just use his link to an online article and gather the knowledge that way.
Off topic: Scott has published over a thousand online artiles related to ASP. If you are looking for some advanced concepts which fall outside the scope of a beginner's book, check them out at [..].

Most of the other reviewers summed up the way the author presents the subject. Chapters are followed up with a Summary, Q&A, Quiz, and Exercises to really bring home what that Chapter was about.

The book itself has been useful to me since I knew nothing about using web developer when I started it, but the most memorable part of the book was the aggravation when trying to redeem the digital edition advertised on the last page of the book.
It claims to be a "free" access to the digital edition for 45 days and says to sign up on [...], but that website doesn't allow you to redeem the access code unless you sign up for a 24$/month subscription.

Very basic, decent book, but don't bother with the digital edition.

I purchased this book for my Kindle, because I would like to learn asp.net so I can make forms and such for my websites. The hard copy comes with a dvd that contains the programs needed to actually use the book. I assumed, since nowhere on the product page does it state that there is no way to access those programs (like a link to a download for them) that I would be able to obtain those programs electronically. Conversely, nowhere on the product page does it state that the content from the dvd is not available to download if you purchase the kindle edition. It looked like a great book and I was excited to get it. However, I couldn't use it because the programs I needed to do so were not available. Customer service was no help at all, and I am very disappointed overall, with the book and with Amazon.

These Sam's 24hr books are great for teaching kids how to Program. The content is broken up into very concise chapters. There is just enough information to educate the reader on the important issues. But there is not too much description that the reader gets lost. I'm working through a chapter a day or so with my 13 year old son. This is just a great book to sit down and work through. Highly recommend.

I think this book is great for its purpose. It's certainly geared towards beginners - so don't expect to learn the entire language, and the various topics you learn are not entirely in depth. However, it does explain everything very clearly and provides plenty of examples. It also has exercises and quizzes at the end of the chapter. If you are like me, and learn the most by doing it, then you will appreciate the exercises.

I'm actually an experienced software developer who recently started working for a company that uses .NET. I have a strong background in solving various programming problems, and wanted a book to help me get familiar with VB.NET syntax and the visual web developer GUI. This certainly accomplished that goal. So even if you're an experienced developer, it may still be worth reading if you have absolutely no experience with VB and .NET. I do plan on moving onto more resources after I finish this book, since it does kind of scratch the surface - but it's a great introduction. Somebody without any programming knowledge could pick up on the concepts of this book.

If you already have even a little experience with VB.NET, then this is not the book for you. This doesn't make it a bad book - that's simply not what this book was designed for.

Major programing is happening in C# and 4.5..This book is not focus on that.
this is an easy to follow book, but I found that it got outdated technology..Sadly

This is a good book but honestly , VB is not in great demand as C# is nowadays as I found in the job market
