Title: Mastering Visual C# .NET
Publisher: Sybex Inc
Authors: Jason Price, Mike Gunderloy
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
One of the two C# books you will ever need.

Seriously, this book rocks. Every section is written in an intelligent way. Good relevant examples. Things are explained thoroughly and in a straight forward manner. There is always an explanation to let you understand the most efficient scenario for the method being explained. The index is very usable. It also reads well. When you look one thing up, it flows so well that you find yourself reading the next section.
I am an experienced VB.net programmer. I started learning C# last month. If you are crossing over to C# I recommend starting with; C# & VB.NET Conversion Pocket Reference by Jose Mojica
The "Pocket Reference" is a bad reference, but it is short enough to read straight through. After you are aware of some of the differences between the languages, this book (Mastering Visual C#) is all you will ever need. This is also a good book for those who are new to programming because the first few chapters are very basic. I wish I had a book this good when I was learning VB.net!

Good book but steep

This is a good book on C++. But maybe a bit steep for those who have not had worked with C++ in real life scenarios. Coming from Java side of the world it was not difficult for me to pick up this book. But perhaps a bit more introductory materials may have been helpful.

Audits ARE easier AND more valuable

Great book! It made me look at audits in a totally different way. We used to do audits just to meet the requirements of ISO 9001. But now we are actually calculating return on investment on some of our findings!

Authors are in fact S+ certified

To the reviewer who said that the author(s) are not Security+ certified: I am one of the authors on this book and am in fact Security+ certified, as I believe all of us are. However, this did not make it into the book at the time the bios were printed.
