The book is excellent for intermediate readers

The book covers C# language in detail and overview of important .Net classes. The addition of new chapters "String Handling and Regular Expressions", "File I/O with Streams", "Using .NET Components in Unmanaged Code.", .... is very informative. I liked explaining of MSIL of important example. It helped me to understand topics like Boxing, Attributes and Reflection. The quality of the example code is not very good and needs improvement. I could not find two topics in the book: Windows Forms and Databases. As a whole, the book is excellent for intermediate readers.

Great Help

If you understand who this book is for, you'll get a lot of use out of it. It's for people who've worked with HTML and have some familiarity with programming concepts, working with databases, and VBA. If this describes you, you'll be up and running with ASP database application programming in a remarkably short period of time. Of course, once you've mastered the very basic examples in this book, you'll probably want to pick up an actual ASP reference to help you get beyond the basics. I think of this book as more of a quick-start guide than anything else.

WARNING: Make sure you have at least the VB 6.0 product

Good general information, but not very detailed on any one subject. Good read if you are interested in many areas of VB programming but don't want to buy ten different books. After reading one section, if you are still interested, then you know to buy the full book on that one subject.

Good intro to .Net development for Windows.

While this is a good primer to .Net programming for Windows, you will need more that this to pass the test, or do the job. The examples are good and easy to follow, but very simplified.
Good jumping off point if your new to .Net
