Appendix A: Answers to Mastery Checks
If you notice the detail ratings that I used, you'll see that the choices with the lowest rating pertain mostly to the 'user' of the book. Contrary to the title, this is not a book for beginners.
This book is 'not' the easiest read, from the getgo I found myself having to read and re-read pages, sections and chapters mainly becuse the ideas, concepts and verbiage were unclear. From my perspective, it read more like a technical manual to define the 4th dimension.
If you've done or been exposed to some coding before you may find this book an easier read. The book may help you to solidify and understand structure for coding in C#, but again if you've not coded an ounce in your life (like me) this book is 'not' what you need in my opinion.
For faculty considering this book for their class as an introduction to C#. Do yourself and your students a great favor and choose another book.
Overall, before you buy, take a look through the book to see if it is a good fit for your needs. If it is great! If it isn't rest assured there are a few other books that helped me understand the bits that I needed. I've recommended them in the appropirate section.
