Good Intro to C#


This is a book that is focused on C# and maintains an iron-grip on its objective. I have read some of the other posters comments and I think the greatest objection has been for the lack of dotNET information.
I would recommend this book to those new to C#. I came from mainly a Java/C background and I found this book useful to pick up the syntaxes. It is not meant for giving the more extreme dotNET programming tips.
I am not sure if this book is suitable to beginners in programming.
Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

Best C++ Book Yet


I have always been a fan of the Deitel series and have read quite a few books - C, C++ and Java How 2 Program as well as H.M. Deitel's book on OPerating Systems. I have little doubts in recommending this book to anyone starting C++.
So much to say about this book, however I'll limit myself to a few points which I found salient:
This book does not keep referring to C, so you won't get bugged down. (In case you want to learn C, try 'C How to Program' by the same authors.)
This book has been written keeping the beginner in mind (beginner = someone new to programming). So, it contains good, solid, perfect, working code you can try out.
Each page is littered with observations on Good Programming Practices and Software Engineering. That helps in refinement of code, so you need not buy another book to find out how to code 'effectively'.
The exercise questions are elaborate and will keep the reader busy for hours on end. But all that's time that's spent usefully.
And this book does not leave out those who already know C++. It's as good as any book for an intermediate level programmer.
An excellent book. Buy this one, it's certain that this will be the last C++ book you'll need.

Sample Questions too confusing


The Book is not bad, in general. The sample questions are very confusing because the author says the the correct answer for a given question is "A". Then right under that, when he explains why "A" is the correct answer he contadicts himself explaining that "C" is the right answer. I don't know... maybe is not the author's fault, maybe the editor was playing solitaire while correcting the book. Bottom line is, if your NEW to certification, this book is going to bring you problems, confusing you a lot.
