Consider having a look at a book like ASP.NET Website Programming (problem - design -solution) which I have read from cover to cover. Now that is an advanced book that covers excellent ground but really doesn't do a good job of explaining the code - if this book was at my fingertips it would have been much, much easier to understand and implement.
So those of you that have some experience with custom server controls, CSS, ADO.NET, and XML will not find the road that hard and will greatly enjoy this read.
Those that want to learn how to implement security correctly using a variety of different techniques throughout the lifecycle or your project will be very excited indeed.
-All the best in your programming endeavors.
I've been studying the .Net Framework for just over a year now. During my studies, I've learned many sophisticated techniques; however, I have not be able to show what I know because I did know how to put it all together. It was like having all the pieces to the puzzle and not having a picture to guide the construction. Consequently, I've been looking for the Picture and this book is it.... a step-by-step guidance on how to integrates all the technologies into one project. This is the "Glue"!
If you're looking for guidance on how to implement the many .Net techniques in a Web Application than this is a Great book! If you are a real beginner please look else where and then come to this book. You will be glad that you did ---> I am!
Bottom Line - The book should be titled Foundational instead of Beginning. If it were, I am sure it reviews would be much higher.
The longest chapter was on XML frankly left me baffled. I've read more comprehensible stuff elsewhere since. All I could do was follow along without really learning. It seemed a complex exercise for a beginners book!
In summary, I learnt some good things from this book but ultimately I found it disappointing.
