Overview

Based on the principles of cognitive science and instructional design, Fluent C#, the first in the new Fluent Learning series, is a true tutorial that will help you build effective working models for understanding a large and complex subject: developing .NET Framework applications in C#.

It guides you through learning the way your mind likes to learn: by solving puzzles, making connections, and building genuine understanding instead of just memorizing random facts.
