While there are many books used to teach introduction to programming courses, very few books combine the elements of 1) teaching computer programming from an application developer perspective, 2) teaching Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) by integrating it throughout the text, and 3) using C# as the programming language to teach concepts and techniques.

    An outstanding textbook for Visual C#.NET

    An excellent introduction of VisualStudio.Net and explanation of IDE development vs stand-alone development, and a thorough coverage of analysis and design phases of the development process. Also excellent worked out examples in each chapter. There are a good number of objective questions and several programming exercises at the end of each chapter, which is very helpful help for the teacher using this textbook. Writing style is extremely clear and very effective. Complex topics, (including the ones listed after the colon) have been explained in a manner that every student can easily understand them: data validation in response to a question:' What should you do when input values are incorrect, Existence Check, Data Type Check, Range Check, Reasonableness Check, Code Check, Cross-Field Check, manipulation of numbers using arithmetical operators, manipulation of strings using operators like concatenation, substring, parsing, methods for changing to upper case etc., date-time manipulation, exceptions and exception handling, call stack, application exception, execution call stack, stack trace property, pass by reference, pass by value, making the operations visible and the data and the implementation of the operations hidden in the objects, common formats for saving information in sequential data files using plain text: (1) Fixed-width text files, (2) CSV (Comma-separated values) files, and (3) Tab-delimited file, Inheritance and Polymorphism -- two important important components of Object Oriented Programming etc. I have seen other books where authors create confusion in reader's mind when they try explaining complex topics in a confusing way. I found everything in this book very easy to understand. After looking at the table of contents, I admire the strategy of the authors - they are presenting the 'more technical things earlier' and 'more management issues a 'bit later.' Also they have separated some programming conventions into appendix B (because the conventions may differ at some software houses). I like the authors separating such material from the chapters of the textbook. Writing style is indeed very clear and very effective, and it reflects the pedagogical skills of the authors. The authors skillfully and successfully explain many difficult issues in programming, like, hash table, stacks, queues, etc. I fully expect to use this book when I teach C# at my university.
