The actual content is presented very well. Object-oriented programming can be tricky, and after working from another book in Java, I can tell you this one definitely makes the concepts of methods, objects, etc make much more sense.
This is by far one of the best books to use in class.
Great format and very easy to understand, unlike
some books which are more of a reference book.
With regard to the person who gave this one star, he is correct that this is a text book. However the quality alone, makes it worth more than one star and being disgruntle about purchasing a book for one price, knowing there are others you could have purchased for less...is really your own fault for not researching. If you have never done programming and you want do to C#, you should consider this textbook before some of the more difficult to follow books on the market, despite price tags. Not all C# intro books are the same...
The only thing that I sometimes found irritating about this book was that if you do the step-by-step of some of the chapters, the smaller programs do not always work, even though there is a screen shot of the program working. The program worked at the later stages of the chapter, but the text presents it like if you build this code block and press "play" it will work and that is not always true.
I loved the "You Do It" exercises at the end of each chapter. This provided a great way for me to connect the dots from what I had just read and create a working program with the newly learned concepts. I never ran into any problems getting these examples compile and execute either.
I would recommend this book to any beginner who wants to dive into programming. In some respects knowing a little bit of Java would be helpful because the author references Java and C++ several times. I would not think that is a requirement though; you will still be able to learn and apply this knowledge easily.
