This book is very helpful and a must have to every ASP.NET programmers. The authors have covered data access - my favorite part in very detail including entity framework, LINQ queries and data binding utilizing the newest .NET framework 4.5. It has sufficient code samples in C# and VB to understand the concepts on every topic. I learnt client side development such as AJAX and jQuery with very clear understanding where my knowledge were lacking behind earlier. This book does not cover MVC in greater detail which I was not expecting from this book anyways. I would recommend this book to any developer who is interested in covering all aspect of asp.net web development.
I have fell in love with this book so much that i am using every book from wrox website as website . The book is amazing and easy to understand . From the website you can download the sample codes and run it which makes your work even more simple . i would highly recommend this book to every developer .I have spent so much money in buying subscriptions for downloading and watching lectures from different websites but this book does the work better than those videos
This is an excellent book that covers virtually every aspect of ASP.NET Web development. It has code samples in most instances for both VB and C#. The book is thorough...
An absolutely necessary companion for ASP.Net developers.
This should really be titled Professional Asp.net Webforms. 94% of the text is based on Webforms, a largely obsolete technology. There are just two short chapters at the end that touch on MVC and Razor, the parts of Asp.net that are most widely used today. WebAPI is barely mentioned. I suppose this could be useful if you find yourself maintaining a legacy Webforms app, but outside of that I can't see any reason for this series to be updated.
The problem with books like this, is that the author assumes that you already know all about ASP.NET and VB programming. I have hardly used this book at all. It really does not explain things to those of us who are still learning. And if you already know how to program, why do you need this book? Not a book to lean from. This reminds me of those water drop guys I find on the internet who I find totally useless. I don't even find this book good for reference because the index could be greatly improved.
The book is disingenuous and not engaging. A lot of the content is the same as the beginning book.
