The book has plenty of code examples and is littered with references to additional reading for real in-depth knowledge. I highly recommend this book for anyone aspiring to pass the MCSD Exam 70-483." - Peter Röök, independent software consultant "I particularly like that there there is no fluff to fill out the book, that is so common in these types of books. The examples are short, clean and "to the point". The illustrations are nice, the code is very well written, the book is airy and has nice formatting. The book covers a lot, I read it to advance my competence in C#/VS 2012/.NET. This is a very nice book, well done!" - Thomas Engelin, independent software consultant Book contentsIf you are switching to C# or if you, this book has much to offer you. The book is easy to read and understand, with a lot of complete code samples.   The first chapters of the book describe the fundamentals of the C# language such as variables, loops and methods. The book then gets progressively more challenging, read the bullets below for more information.
