Title: Inside C#, Second Edition

Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
A great intro to a fun language


If you're looking for the Kernigan & Ritchie equivalent of C#, then look no further. Tom Archer describes the C# language concisely and accurately, and even makes comparisons to C, C++, and Java, to help those making the transition.
He describes everything: namespaces, classes, inheritance, interfaces, delegates, events, multithreading, and COM interoperability. What's great is that he does everything on the command line -- not a single Windows form, not even a message box. This allows him to focus on the language itself.
He even explains why the design team at Microsoft made certain decisions. For example, why use a garbage-collection system instead of a reference counting system? He describes the thought processes that went on at Microsoft, which is a really nice touch. His style is very easy and conversational, and I had a great time reading it.
There were a few areas which I would have liked him to explain in greater details (threading, for example), but considering that he had to learn the language while writing about it, he did a superb job.

Awesome EJB Book


This is the BEST Java certification book I've bought! I'm used to studying Java certification books that need a GAZILLION LINES of text just to explain one small topic! But with this book all you have to do is look at the pictures and read a few lines of text... and bingo you get it.
Trust me, I passed the SCBCD exam with a score of 97% because of this book!

Excellent!


This book made it easy for me to set up a wireless home network--and I'm not a technically oriented person. Full color, step-by-step screen shots show how to execute each task. This is the book to get if you want to set up a Wi-Fi network without wading through a lot of text. Highly recommended.
