In most cases, the whole thing is being explained in paragraph format - that means no use of bulleted or numbered lists or no use of step 1, step 2, step 3 etc!
In terms of formatting, the books is totally 'plain text'!! As there are very few usage of conventions, particularly, no used o bold text or specific format to explain sepcific type of instructions e.g, when referring to program step etc.
This is really irritating as we have to go through the whole literature-like paragraphs to understand and graps the context.
Another irritating thing is that there is no CD included for sample files etc. Wherever the autor refer to a sample file, that reference comes only at the end of whole story - that means sometimes you have to read a full page and in the end it will say 'The example used here is abc.xml which is included on website of book! What a rubbish thing. They should tell upfront that 'We are using file abc.xml going forward'!!
You have to constantly stop every two sentences to look up vocabulary and can get easily lost. These Microsoft .Net Development Series books are a great alternative to the Step by Step books by Microsoft.I guess I could give this book five stars since there is no "Step by Step" series on this subject. I hope this article helps people out.
