....Most beginners would struggle hard to understand any single one of these subjects!
Being a beginner I would agree with you, but what I have gained from this book is a better understanding of the methodology and processes it uses to implement the site. Maybe I am not the 'Target Audience' for the book but I could never resist jumping in with both feet!There is a lot of information for me to still glean from the book as I build my skill level.

quote:Having said this, however, I really think it would be great if Wrox could publish a new edition of this book, or a more advanced book that picks up where this book leaves off.
Cant wait for 'The PhileII'. It would be a great help if there was a VB.NET 2003 version.

I have been learning VB.Net for about 6 months and I felt that this book would be the next step. The concept is great and the overall content is good. But now I think I have jumped in at the deep end. So much prior knowledge is assumed by the authors.

If the reader required no explaination at all and knew how to build a functioning ASP.Net site already, they wouldn't need this book.

I didn't expect to be spoon fed but I would like to have been made aware of the various stages required, even if a full explaination was not given.
Then at least I would have the opportunity to find the answer elsewhere. Instead of not being aware of a missing segment in the puzzle and left bewildered.

It is very remiss of the authors to leave out chunks of explaination, without saying so. Even if they think the next part is obvious, which it might be to the author and professional programmers.

I have to say that this is the best .net book i've ever read, before this book i was doing everything the hard way, the book opened my eyes to better OO practices, I think this book is a must for the novice and intermediate programmer, obviously from the comments here is that these people don't get it, but then, they probably don't know what a delegate is either. Other books provide examples, this book provides a solution, which you can take and go create your own solution based on the practices in this book. You will need a supplement resource, and not another book but the internet! Your not going to get it straight away, and that's because it covers some advanced topics. especially on OO programming, but you don't have to get it, start creating your solutions using the practices in this book even if you do'nt understand it, because you soon will. great book, just bought the new version for .net 2

I'm new to .NET and SQL Server development but was given a project to build a company's website using Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005. While I'm not a heavy duty programmer I do have a limited background in C/C++ and Oracle. The book is definitely for someone who knows what they're doing in regards to OO design and how it relates to .NET 2.0. I'm having a some problems rebuilding from the ground up and getting all the pieces to work together but that just forces me to learn the other aspects of the environment. I would like to see a section on putting all the pieces together in a more step by step fashion.

This is definitely not the book for you! This is mostly an architecture book for people who already know the basics. By the way, when you're ready for this book you should get the second edition - for VS 2005.

Try these:

Professional ASP.NET 2.0 (the title is misleading, anyone with a programming background will like this book; truely awesome)

Beginning ASP.NET 2.0 In C# 2005 - From Novice To Professional (both beginners and seasoned ASP.NET developers can learn from this, or any of McDonald's books)

Are you a PL/SQL Expert who's trying to figure out T-SQL? I hope not, because the better you know PL/SQL, the more you'll hate T-SQL! For books on Sql Server, get anything by Itzik Ben-Gan, such as "Inside SQL Server 2005: T-SQL Programming" (or his beginner book on Querying). This also isn't bad: "SQL Server 2005 T-SQL Recipes".

Sadly, there's a lot of books that don't measure up, so pick wisely. I'm especially displeased with most SQL books, and none of them measure up to Steven Feuerstein's books on PL/SQL. The books I mentioned are the best I've seen for developers, but we still have a way to go to find the perfect T-SQL book.

Thanks for the input but I'm already in too deep now. I'm doing a demo this friday and have gotten most of the site replicated. It's not easy but, as with life, hard work pays off and I did buy Beggining ASP.NET 2.0 with C#. I hope to implement in about a month. Wish me luck!
