Your books have always been my go-to source because they're perfectly suited to my no-time-to-waste schedule and ADD learning style--they're modular, clean, and hit all the major points without any fluff. I know that by the time I finish, I'll feel very comfortable with proceeding on a live assignment.

From the Back Cover
By the end of section 1]]just 5 chapters]]you'll be developing real-world web apps using C# code for the model and controller classes]]HTML, CSS, and Razor code for the view files (for the user interface)]]and Bootstrap classes for responsive design so that your apps adapt well to all screen sizes. You'll also be able use the debugging tools in Visual Studio and your browser to test your apps and make sure they'll work right for all users.
In section 2, you'll build out that set of skills to create more complex controllers, work with Razor views, handle cookies and sessions, do model binding, validate data, and handle database data with EF (Entity Framework) Core. You'll also see how all these skills come together in a single application, with coverage of the "gotchas" that can occur and how to solve them.
Finally, in section 3, you can pick up additional skills as you need them to: create custom tag helpers and view components; authenticate and authorize users; use dependency injection to automate testing; and use Visual Studio Code.
All along the way, you'll get complete web apps that show you how each feature works in context (you can download these for free from the Murach website). You'll get chapter exercises that let you practice your new skills. And you'll get Murach's distinctive "paired-pages" format that presents each skill in a 2-page spread, full of examples, notes, and explanation]]a format that developers praise because it saves them both training and reference time.

I switched to this book in January 2020, weeks before it was sent the the printers. The publishers worked directly with me to get the instructor materials and an electronic version so I could have it ready before the semester started.
My first semester with this book went well. We have made it through the first 12 chapters, though I changed the order, and held off on chapter 4 & 12 (Data driven apps), until the students had a better understanding or routes, views, models and the basic plumbing.
The book shows all the working parts needed to get an application running. Bootstrap, NuGet Package Manager, Entity Framework, Application options. The Chapter examples provide a good walk through of how the code works, and the end of chapter exercises are helpful.
Though I was familiar with the MVC architecture pattern, having taught it in PHP courses, the book helped teach me and my students how to understand Microsoft MVC.
Overall I was very pleased with the book, and will use it for years to come.
I really liked chapters 12 and 14, as I feel that these chapters go over the EF core and DI concepts in ASP.NET core very well. I recommend this book if you are looking for some good exercises and examples, as well as a great way to learn these concepts.
It was worth waiting for!
It's a very good technical and training material!
Very good code examples and exercises!
Murach Publishing proved one more time that they are excellent in producing very good books!
