To All True Beginners:

OK, this is a blatant plug, but at least check out the forum here titled:

BOOK: Beginning C# 3.0 : An Introduction to Object Oriented Programming BOOK ISBN: 978-0-470-26129-3

as well as the book reviews on Amazon.com.

I am the author of the book and have over 20 years of teaching beginning students OOA, OOD, and OOP at Purdue University. Nothing like having a hundred or so pairs of eyes looking at you to hone your teaching skills and examples to bring the topics home. I think I've managed to bring that experience to my books. Perhaps using that book to get comfortable with C# and OOP and then come back to these books for additional details would he helpful.

Just a thought...

I personally have found this book to be excellent. It's well paced and introduces the basic concepts of the C# language in a very methodical and structured way. With all these books, I think there has to be some assumed level of pre-knowledge. I don't think anyone would pick up this book having not programmed before.

I have been programming for nearly 2 years, mainly Excel/Access VBA, so not even in a .NET environment, yet I have been able to grasp the concepts without too much difficulty. I'm not saying it's been plain sailing; there have been times where I haven't understood something, even after re-reading it several times, and I have resorted to looking it up on the web to get a different angle.

Some people are suited to this style of learning, others respond to a more practical approach.
