Will,

This book will pretty much pick up where Marco's ASP.NET book left off. That means a basic familiarity with 2.0 will be all that is required, so you won't be missing anything from not having read the 3.5 book.

There will be information on EF.

As far as exercises go, there won't be any. It's not a classic "textbook" per se.

In each chapter, there are three sections: the Problem section, the Design section, and the Solution section.

In "Problem", we think about the goal we want to accomplish or feature(s) we want to implement.

In "Design", we look at the different ways to approach the "Problem". We discuss the pros and cons of each approach, then settle on one.

In "Solution", I show how to implement the chosen "Design" to solve the "Problem".

Does that make sense?
