This book is crammed with fantastic tips. I spend alot of time in the IDE, still found a ton of new features I had no idea existed. This book covers all aspects of using the IDE, and does so in a very organized and easy to navigate manner. It's on my desk now most of the time so I can get to it quickly. It travels very nicely too. I would highly suggest this book to any .net developer that spends a significant amount of time in vs.net. It is a very good resource.Was this review helpful?

First things first.....keep this book near your development machine. When I started reading this book, I honestly felt that this book was telling me what I already knew. Well, partly coz I learnt some cool stuff about the IDE when I joined my job. As I read further, I was impressed with what the IDE provided and generally we as programmers/developers tend to ignore...even to look at it. While this book states that it covers the VS.NET IDE's from 2002 all the way to 2005, one-third of the book covers 2005...And the remaining book tells that this is there is 2003 but is better in 2005. The sad part about the book is that since 2005 is not yet released,and the non-MSDN subscribers don't use the 2005 IDE, the user may want to hang on to this book till the IDE comes out. Having read the 'Debugging Windows applications with VS.NET - By John Robbins' at school, I feel that the 'debugging section' in this book is for novices. And to answer the good-ol' question of would I buy this book....I would say 'maybe - depending on my current expertise with the VS.NET 2003 IDE' ....but for someone who want to improve his/her productivity with the IDE...this book is worth its salt.Was this review helpful?
