Wow, so much to cover and so little space, and 2 languages! Overall a pretty good overview I reckon. I do have some feedback on the chapter (pretty minor stuff though, I know there is a limit to what can be covered):
1. A small section on operator precedence might have been useful for the uninitiated, e.g. 2 + 5 * 10 is not the same as (2 + 5) * 10.
2. The logical operators table could have referenced the C# & and | operators (these force both sides to be evaluated) as matching the VB
.NET And and Or operators. This is a minor issue given the book is for beginners but it would make the table consistent with both language capabilities.
3. A small discussion of reference type objects as parameters (which copy the reference to the object) versus the discussion which covered value type (int, bool, etc) parameters which copy the contents of the parameter.
4. More of a question this one, on page 188 the default access modifier for a class is specified as private, I thought that the default for a class was internal and the default for class members was private?
From what I have seen so far this is a well structured book and I am finding it an excellent introduction to ASP.NET 3.5.
