On pdf page 83 the AddRuleViolations method is added to the Control Helpers class and is used/mentioned through page 100 several times. By the time the reader is at page 184 this method is no longer mentioned or used and a new method AddModelErrors is introduced in its stead.

I realize that over the course of a tutorial calls and items will be changed and improvements will be made; it would be helpfull to the user following the tutorial if these changes were a bit more explicit than just depracted with no mention. It would allow the student a higher success rate, less frustration and fewer inqueries to the author or publisher about them.

All in all a good tutorial but the last 60 pages could have used more attention to detail and better technical editing.
