I had minor ASP and ADO experience. My goal was to understand ADO.net and I feel this book help me acheive this goal. Overall I had no problems picking up the concepts and running through the sample code. The book is presented in a reasonably concise mannar. I enjoyed the fact that its not 800-900 pages long.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Are you an experienced ASP programmer trying to take that first step into the .Net world? Have you gone through the .Net "tutorials", "walkthroughs", and "quick starts" and still feel lost?...like there's a missing "piece" to the puzzle that the Microsoft authors left out? Then buy this book. True, it's titled "Beginning...". And it does include a chapter titled "Relational Databases" and section here or there that any knowledgeable SQL-exposed person should know. Plus it goes through some of the simpler tasks a little more slowly that I'd like. But...heck...that why God gave you common sense and fingers to skip all that stuff! I've finished the first 7 chapters and felt strongly enough to post a positive review...something I've never done for any book. It's short (448 pages), it's cheap ($40 US), and a quick read. It'll get you over that ADO.NET hump and ready to tackle the rest of the framework!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
