Great book to study and understand Data Structures.

I am a great fan of Robert Lafore's books. I purchased this book as soon as I came to know about it. I read the book with maximum expectations and never felt disappointed by it. Students who feel intimidated by DSA concepts should definitely read this book. A great book from a great author.

For Beginners as the Title Says

When i began learning .NET and C#, after getting the basics of .NET Framework, I wanted to quickly cover ground and at the same time be productive. I picked up this book and boy I tell you -- i got a quick understanding of ADO.NET all the way from basic dataset stuff to transactions and XML quickly. I own other books on .NET but they don't cover ado.net transactions and ado.net events the way this book does. Examples and practial, clear and simple which is what is required for a beginners book. This book is a must in every C# programmers library. It has much deeper content than the Beginning VB.NET databases book also from Wrox.
I would strongly recommend to others that after learning the basics of C#(variables,types,classes,oop) one should get this book and learn ADO.NET. ADO.NET is a major component of the .NET framework and this book will get you there quickly and painlessly !!

where is the first step?

First off, let me say you must understand the fundamentals of your language of choice and you must understand the .net framework. This book does not teach you any of those things. This book I think could be expanded further like explaining exactly what does AutoEventWireUp do exactly, or expand on the customs server controls, etc and actually be made into a core reference because the information inside is that valuable. The only real drawback to the book is a lot of VB. C# is really a fast growing language. I myself changed from VB to C# but since I have a lot of VB experience so reading the VB Samples was not that difficult. I would have preferred to see them in C# though. I also didn't care for the Visual Studio walkthrough and explanations like what these windows are were useless to me, but creating web projects were not. Like I said you must know your language and you must know the .net framework before getting into this book. By the time you do learn all that you already know your way around VS. This book will be a desk reference for a very long time though because of all the configurations setting and uses of just ASP Specific things that none of the other .net books cover.

Title: Programming Windows, Fifth Edition

Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5

excellent book on win32 api programming. it deserves a better rating than a 4, but probably not a perfect 5. as a c/c++ programmer for over 15 years, i place this book in the 'must have' catagory for anyone doing serious windows programming at the c/c++ api/sdk level. and this should be the second book on the desk of all mfc programmers who want to take full advantage of mfc capabilities. the strength of this book is that it is a good combination of 'how to' and technical reference, and an excellent supplement to the online msdn.
