    Excellent for learning and reference

    If you are relatively new to C# programming or are looking for a book to cover the basics as a reference, this book does an excellent job. The exercises in the book and the descriptions provided are clear and concise. I learned a great deal about the C# language from this book and much of what I have learned I have already put into practice on the job. I would not hesitate to purchase another John Sharp technical programming book.

    Wouldn't recommend it

    This book is poorly written, and does not explain thing very well when it comes to using C# with WinFomrs and WPF. The examples are convoluted and go on forever, feels like I¿m stuck in a circular linked list!!!

    A reviewer

    I'm a novice when it comes to programming in C#. I'm hoping that this book will teach me the ins and outs of it so that I can better program / develop websites and other apps. I've only read the first 2 chapters and have been learnig a great deal so far. I'm looking forward to reading and completing the rest of the book. One of the best things about it, aside from learning C#, is that it comes in a PDF format on a CD so that it can be viewed on a computer display. Excersises are also included there. I have a widescreen LCD monitor which enables me to view the book on one side of it and the Visual C# Express Edition program from Microsoft on the other. Will be purchasing Visual Studio 2008 soon!!! In my own personal opinion I think John Sharp, the author of the book, has done a marvelous job at explaining how the C# syntax is to be put together. Great job to all those who worked tirelessly in putting this book together!!!
