    A good book to learn VISUAL C#.NET (not only for VB6 developers but for ALL Developers)

    Hai guys, I am a VB/ASP programmer.i wanted to peek into this "so called" .net environment. First i confused fully which book i should buy.whether i have to go for C#.NET or VB.NET.I finally chose C#.(both VB.NET and C#.NET almost same though) and bought this book. so far i have read 5 chapters..i can say..its pretty good than i thought. whoever want to jump into writing windows programming using C# as soon as you open this book,please you dont want to buy this book. Whoever want to understand the concepts behind .NET and C# first, and then want to apply it to windows application.you can happily buy this book. its not tooooooooooo big like other books but concept is very precise and accurate. pros: 1.it gives indepth knowledge of C# in using simple real world programs. 2.step by step programming.(dont need to type 5 pages code at a time and then to test it and all) 3.excellent way of explaining OOPS concept..(even vb programmer like me can very easily pick up) cons: 1.Garbage collection..not explained deeply. 2.no questions available at the end of chapter. 3.you have to read each and every line.IF YOU MISS A LINE in one chapter ..YOU WILL ASSUME YOURSELF YOU WILL BE MISSED IN NEXT CHAPTER too:-) 4.The book should be called as A GUIDE FOR VISUAL C#.NET not only for vb6 developers but for all. so far the book is good...but i will update this review once i am done with all chapters.
