I have been using Mike Murach computer books for many years (starting with mainframe COBOL!). They have always been the best books on their subject available. This one follows in that tradition. I have been using Visual Basic since version 1.0 and have resisted the C programming language. I have had to do some C over the years including C under OS/2 and a class in C# when it first came out. Did not like the language especially when compared to VB. I am now on a contract that requires C# 2005. This book is a life saver. The layout of instruction on the left and example on the right works for me. The few printing errors where corrected after the first print run (mine is from the 10th run). The examples work! No small thing after experiancing the frustration of Microsoft Press books with bad examples. The examples are also real-world, business type applications not stupid zodiac predictions or such. I completely recommend this book to anyone needing to learn C# 2005. And by the way, the .Net 2005 environement finally has got it right: it is worth upgrading to.Was this review helpful?
