Browsing the books about ASP 4 I read great reviews about this book by Imar, so I ordered it. Two weeks studying it and I'm already building the website I need for my company. And that includes CSS styles, AJAX, jQuery, databases, master pages, navigation, security... This book is just amazing. Imar manages to include in less than 800 pages all you need to know to start building rich features websites, and does it smoothly and with ease, always working over a growing example very easy to understand. I haven't found a single error in the code samples yet, and haven't found either in the Internet an easier way write the code than the one used in this book. Besides strongly recommending this book to whoever wants to start building ASP websites, I really want to thank Imar for this great job. One of the best tech books I've ever had.
I have already ordered Professional ASP.NET 4 in C# and VB also by Wrox. I haven't received it yet but I'm regreting in advance that is not also written by Imar.
It was organized great. The chapters were laid out by giving a brief understandable overview of what material was going to be covered. Then multiple examples furthering what he stated in the intro, and a good summary at the end. And each example was set up similarly: brief overview of what the example will do, DETAILED step by step (with a section devoted to most common errors), and a deep overview of what you did at the end.
He promotes "don't be afraid to break your project to try something new" and usually I am because I never want to have to remake the project. But with his very helpful online resource I felt free to mess up my project multiple times, and it never took more than a minute to get back to where I was if I needed to start over! (or if I just wanted to skip a section)
Code Behind vs Design View:
He focused on design view a good bit, which could be a negative BUT after each example he explained in detail what happened in the code behind and the source code. This worked out great because I would usually follow the example in the step by step in design view and then after reading how i did what i did redo the project in the source code/code behind!
Only downside may be is that when it got to advanced database stuff it was very difficult to work in the code behind/ source because he used the wizard and I couldn't figure out how to replicate it in source (but I will say that is probably getting outside the scope of his book)
