Book Overview

If you're new to C#, this popular book is the ideal way to get started. Completely revised for the latest version of the language, Learning C# 3.0 starts with the fundamentals and takes you through intermediate and advanced C# features -- including generics, interfaces, delegates, lambda expressions, and LINQ. You'll also learn how to build Windows applications and handle data with C#. No previous programming experience is required -- in fact, if...

Top Notch Service

I had a wonderful experience with this retailer. He rushed my order to me when I explained that I needed these books for a test and had been unable to get them for several weeks. I emailed to ask him if he could please put them in the mail as soon as possible because there was no two-day air option. I had my book in two days. Doing business with him was a pleasure that exemplified top-notch customer service.

Learning C# 3.0 by Jesse Liberty

Bought this book recently. It became my desk book for learning C#. Very good book for C# beginning programming.

See how sharp you can get

I would highly recommend this text to anyone approaching programming or the .NET programming environment for the first time. Not only does this book prepare you for the rigors of object-oriented programming in C#, but Jesse Liberty and Brian MacDonald also give you a working introduction to the .NET framework. C# is the language that Bjarne Stroustrup was referring to when he said that there was a language in C++ just waiting to get out. If you get rid all the weird syntax and conventions of C++ and add some really useful programming tools, what you have is C#. The fact that C# is a totally object-oriented languge standing on the shoulders of .NET makes it a logically coherent programming system. Spock probably used it on the Enterprise. Add the Integrated Development Envirionment and you can actually enjoy programming again. The introduction to .NET in this text is so painless that you won't even feel the needle going in. Once you get that first shot, you'll be hungering for more. Liberty and MacDonald are careful not to let you OD, and provide the necessary and sufficient information to take yourself comfortably to the next level in that most dynamic of programming environments. Oh, and did I mention that the examples in the text are well thought out - and that they actually work! If you are new to programming or new to .NET, this book is for you. Even if you've programmed for years, you might want to read this book - just to witness how writing a book about "how to program" should be done.

Good Beginning C# Text

This text is a good one for those new to C# and also for those who are familiar with C# but not fluent with it. I have read almost all of Mr. Liberty's books for varied languages at one time or another and he is a good teacher. Like most Authors, the concern with selling books is there. However, Mr. Liberty cares more than selling books. He seems to truely care about teaching people programming concepts. He seems to care if you "get it" while exploring some of the varied theorems, algorithms, and syntax rules. While this text is for novices and structured for newbies to C# and programming in general, it also touches on the more advanced areas of C#. While not exploring some of these areas for long periods of time, the book is good because it at least introduces a person to most concepts. No text is perfect and for a high level language such as C# there is no way possible for a person to include everything into a single text as the C# library is just far too large. However as far as the basic syntax for C# 3.0 this book pretty much covers everything a person needs to know. After a text such as this one a person could delve into a more advanced text in order to get practice at coding. The best way to get proficient in any language is to WRITE CODE WHILE you are learning a book. Practice, practice, and more practice. This book will teach you most of the basics you need to know. The rest is up to you. After this text a person would need to decide if they wanted to delve into web programming, desktop apps, etc. before getting an appropriate text for their chosen area.
