Don't purchase if you're new to .net and C#,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Murach's ASP.NET 3.5 Web Programming with C# 2008 (Paperback)
I'm new to .net and also C# and I bought this book in hopes to learn the basics as well as more complicated applications as I get further into the book.
But it appears this book assumes you already have experience with both so you feel lost at times. For example, one of the very first exercises says to create a checkout page. It has 7 or so items they want you to do, but don't really give you any tips on how to accomplish them? If you get stuck you have no where to go, to look for help on the exercise. It wants you to add code to your pages, but I have no idea what the code will be!
As I've been reading this book, I feel like I jumped into an already started project and being asked to complete someone else work, and not sure how to do it.
