There are some subjects that should naturally be beyond the scope of dummy books. One should not expect a title like, "Flying a spacecraft for dummies". The question then is, does Visual Studio 2010 belong in the rocket science class of subjects? I doubt that Microsoft will take it as a compliment if anyone says that this product is so tough that only nuclear physicists can understand it. I have no doubt that Andrew Moore put a lot of effort into the 900-page book, which going by other Dummy books, is a giant. However, I suggest that the publishers do another review of the title in the interest of the Dummy Book industry.

To start with, Andrew Moore states on page 2 that he intends the book to help a lot of people, from application developers to advanced developers and others. One wonders then who a dummy is in his imagination. Please bear in mind that a dummy book should address the needs of a dummy to start with. A dummy of Visual Studio 2010 can be someone who is entirely new to Visual Studio or someone who had had prior experience with Visual Studio but is new to the 2010 version. In his attempt to help everyone, Moore ended up with a big book that gives too little to anyone to be helpful.

Take a look at the Book 1 section. One has to admit that the discussion there has very little to do with VS 2010, perhaps a lot to do with current trends in the industry, but very little is specific to VS 2010 except to say that it is a good product to work with. Well, if a dummy did not think the product was good, he would not be reading a book on it. Fortunately, with more than 800 pages to go, the dummy feels like he may yet get value for his money after all, and enters the next section, Book 2, with his enthusiasm bruised but still viable.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent comprehensive study of Visual Studio 2010 and .NET development and web development. It covers all the new bells and whistles in Visual Studio 2010. Many of the sections are "for dummies" because if you have a Visual Studio 2008 background, there is a lot of repetition. But if you're new to .NET development, this book is very detailed and everything you need to know about everything in regard to programming.

If you're an experienced developer, it has a lot of entry level material that's easy to skim over. It has a section on creating a Facebook app that I'm looking forward to trying out.

This book is definitely a keeper. It advertises 7 books in one, and that is certainly true. There is so much in this book. Although it is definitely best for a beginner, even an experienced developer will learn a lot of new things pertinent to VS2010.

I had been programming for the first 20 years of my working life and have been in non-IT management for the last 10 years. I needed to get up to speed quickly and get an good overall knowledge of the latest development in the .NET field and especially web related programming. I knew absolutely nothing about Visual Studio nor about the many many areas of the .NET framework.

This book brilliantly layed it out for me in an easy to follow, not too deep technically, but technically enough manner so that I now feel after about 2 months of reading and practicing at home in this environment and ready to learn and do more.

No this book is not for the complete newcommer to programming as the .NET framework is just so vast. But if you do have some programming experience and want to get into .NET - just get it! Full stop.

Cheers

Tom

It was well written & another great Dummies book. But, it I did not find it useful for the type of windows apps I was working on. I will keep it for futher reference. I bought another book that was more helpful for my situation. I was supprised that such a large book was so narrow in its scope.

Well, what can I say. It's a 'for dummies' guide. It has essential information, and I use it as a refference guide for some hardly ever used functions of Visual Studio 2010. It also has plenty of information to keep any programmer coming back for more. I consider this a must have reference manual. There are others out there with more in depth information, but this one covers most of them with some more in depth points.

The book provided enough incite that I was able to figure out how to use this development environment in a fairly short amount of time. I'm no expert, but I'm no longer a dummy.

I own a "for Dummies" book for just about every program on my computer. These books make learning so much easier than trying to follow the original instructions that come with the programs (and the books published for them at much higher prices). Easy to find the info you need and easy to apply. Love them all!
