3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough depth, December 13, 2011

This review is from: Objective-C Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide (Big Nerd Ranch Guides) (Paperback)
I had high expectations for this book based on the other reviews. I made it through most of the book fairly quickly, having no objective-c or object oriented programming experience at all before I started. There are a lot of chapters in this book, and they're very short. But that is also the problem I found with the book. I didn't feel like the topics were covered in enough depth. And I didn't get a sense of how things fit together. By the end of the book I didn't feel like I had the skills I needed to start writing objective-c programs on my own, and that was disappointing.

From my experience, a lot of programming skill comes from hacking around on your own projects. A book can only take you so far, keeping a book's topics streamlined is in my opinion a good idea. There are way too many topics in programming to cover in one book, trying to would be futile. Take this advice with a grain of salt as I have never read their Objective-C books; I have however read two of their iOS programming books (2nd and 3rd ed.) and found them great.
