Rod Stephens has once again proven that he is a Master Instructor when it comes to teaching folks the intricacies of Microsoft .NET programming. This time it is for the latest edition of Microsoft C#.NET 5.0 in his book C# 5.0 Programmer’s Reference. Let me begin by saying that I am by no means an affluent C#.NET developer. Hence this is why I acquired a copy of this book, so I could continue my study of the programming language as best I can. I have spent a whole lot of money over the past several months on various training websites in attempts to further my education in C#.NET programming. When I say a lot, I have subscribed to at least six different training sites for several months at a time and have watched who knows how many hundreds of hours of video in my attempts to learn the language. Having said that, I can honestly say I wish I had not wasted my money. Rod Stephens has once again shown me the answers to so many questions I have had in the past with regard to certain aspects of C# programming. There is so much information that is shared in the book that is not shared in the various videos I have been watching. I got to thinking that it could be because this is a Programmer’s Reference type of book instead of a teaching, but I learned more from Rod’s concise, to the point, writing about each aspect that doesn’t include all the “Fluff” you find on all those videos. So many times the “instructors” on the videos will go off on a tangent about this or that and then tell you it is not relevant. Rod doesn’t waste your time like that with this book. He gets right to the information and tells you concisely what you need to know about each aspect. I like that.
