This is a great text book, and it's just that. It starts off with basics and moves on to more difficult issues once the foundation is built.

There are plenty of examples, key terms, and illustrations. Perfect for a wanna be geek like myself.

The only problem is that it has been relatively difficult to find the Source files and the Instructors version for the questions. I haven't been able to download them from teh CENGAGE site yet.

Enjoy!

After spending a great amount of money on C# books, ( books like learn C# in 24 hours , Head first etc), I decided to learn from the start.

This book clears the fundamentals, it lays a base. For example it begins with data types, then conditionals, Loops and arrays. Each has a chapter with many quizes and exersizes.

Once the foundations is laid solid the author moves to other topics. It is the same approach as we had in the med school, you learn Anatomy, Physology, Bio, before you jump into learning medicine.

I highly recommend this book. The book is carefully laid out, the examples are pertinent. If you are looking for a book that will teach you a language in 1 month- then look elsewhere.

If you are serious, you will need this book. I am very pleased and wish the author best.

This is a class textbook. It is ok as a reference manual, but if you are trying to learn C#, you'd better have a pretty good programming background. Each chapter ends with a set of excercises and a review exam, but no anwers are provided to check your work. I suspect that one would have to purchase an instructor's version. The other problem I found with this book is that it was quite a chore to get the associated code that goes along with the text. With Wrox publication, one goes to the Wrox website and the code is easily available. To get the code for this book, one must go to a third party website with an obtuse search procedure to find the code and download it. I would not recommend this book. As a final note, it is advertised as, "new at a used price." I suspect my copy is used, but can't be sure.

Looks like a brand new book. Love Course Technology books they give lots of pictures, step-by-step instructions with explanations plus they highlight it in the code. You could very easily teach yourself C# with this book.
