More About This Textbook


This is the latest edition of our best-selling C# book. The content continues to evolve with the language, of course, but one thing has stayed the same over the years: We still call this "the C# book you'll wish you'd bought first" because it gets you developing professional Windows Forms applications without any wasted time or effort.

    Murach's Second to NONE!!!!!

    Whether you are a novice or a professional, you can't find a better publisher than Murach. Their C# 2008 book like all others I've ever read by them is extremely easy to follow and well organized with the paired pages (i.e. topic and example). Not only do they put the book together in an easy to read format, but they also give you more than your money's worth of information and code examples to help you understand the topics discussed. If you're looking for a publisher and a book that will help you master C#, I would highly recommend making Murach's C# 2008 book your first stop. You'll be glad you started here when you start to see the return on investment you will receive from their books.

    When I need new technical books in the future, I will always search for a Murach book first.

    In 20+ years of software development I have never read another book so well organized. Topics flow in a well thought out, logical order and are easy to follow and understand. The two-page topic concept is great learning experience that doesn¿t overload you with too much info at once. When I need new technical books in the future, I will always search for a Murach book first.
