After reading the book, I found it very informative. The author explains how to write C++ programs for .net very clearly. It was easy to find the information that I needed to learn. The included electronic version on the book is one of my favorite features. With it you are able to search the book contents very efficiently. All examples that I tried in the Visual C++ environment worked flawlessly as expected. A must have book for beginning Visual C++.NET programmers. I recommend this book to other readers interested in learning how to program Visual C++.NET for the first time.

I gave this book only 2 stars due to the fact that I found the material to be too complex for a beginner. I have no experience in programming and was hoping that the book would be more detailed in how C++ works. There are alot of examples in the book for you to copy to the computer but the commmands aren't described. For example in Chapter 2, part of the example tells you to type the following with no explanation as to what the commands are and what those commands are doing.void SetName(String *name) { strName = strName ->Copy(name); }String* GetName() { return strName; } Perhaps I had the wrong impression when I purchased this book thinking it was a C++ tutorial rather than just a software tutorial. Who knows? The plus side is that you get the book and the complete Visual software cheaper than buying the software alone.

Ok. This book doesn?t teach C++. But it sure teaches the Visual Environment if one already knows C++. The practical teaching format is very easy to follow and the book is very complete. Excellent and easy to follow. A great introduction.
