ASP.NET All-in-One Desk Reference for Dummies distills the most crucial information you need to work with ASP.NET into eight concise, easy-to-read mini-books. If you just want results -- and you hate giant, turgid “doorstops” -- this one’s for you.

OK, it’s 900 pages, but they’re exceptionally focused, friendly, and replete with examples. In just the first mini-book, you’ll get through the core concepts of ASP.NET 2.0 programming -- including managing state and using master pages to enforce visual consistency throughout your pages. By the end of that first mini-book, you’ll be comfortable working with Visual Studio, you’ll have walked through building your first application, and you’ll even have some debugging under your belt.

Next, you’ll turn to ASP.NET 2.0’s server controls: basics such as text boxes; validation controls; and slick interface elements like calendars. Since serious ASP.NET programming requires solid command of HTML and CSS, there’s a full mini-book on those topics, too.

There are primers on both commonly used languages for ASP.NET programming, C# and VB. And, since databases are central to most ASP.NET applications, the authors set aside a mini-book for them, covering ASP.NET facilities such as GridView, FormView, DetailsView, and Repeater (plus a touch of XML).

In the final two sections, you’ll move on to more sophisticated techniques. You’ll learn to leverage the .NET classes that are most useful for ASP.NET development, including ASP.NET 2.0’s new generic collection classes. Finally, there’s a mini-book of advanced techniques for everything from site navigation to portal development.

As with all For Dummies All-in-One titles, the emphasis is on accessibility. The book’s organized with multiple “access points” that help you find what you’re looking for, fast -- whether you need a quick snippet of code (they’re all downloadable) or a plain-English explanation.
