    Great Instruction and Reference for ASP.NET

    Matthew MacDonald has created a great instructional guide and reference for ASP.NET and C#. Mr. MacDonald's book provides thorough coverage of all the important ASP.NET topics (Forms, Controls, Data Acces, Navigation, Security, and more) as well as a very good overview of C#. Many technical books give a brief overview of the technology and then dedicate the rest of the book to creating a demo application. Mr MacDonald takes a different approach. He provides clear and concise examples for each topic. This makes for a great reference since the reader can look at a complete working example of what they trying to accomplish. Mr. MacDonald also provides useful instructions and tips for using Visual Studio 2010. Overall I found the book to be very readable - a nice combination of technical enough to keep an experienced developer interested, but simple enough to introduce new concepts in an understandable fashion. This book is good for someone with some web development experience as well as an experienced web developer hoping to get exposure to a new technology or refresh and update their existing knowledge.
