Not really. I know they were working in it, but I haven't seen it yet. Try asking in the general forum at http://p2p.wrox.com/wrox-book-feedback-55/ Jim may know more....

Cheers,

Imar

On the Amazon page, I can read:

Skills Challenge is a digital learning product that provides programmers with hands-on practice that complements the Wrox publications. Based on Innerworkings’ patented code judging engine, it allows programmers to write application code that is then graded with feedback in real time. The ASP.NET 4.5 Skills Challenge containing 12-15 lessons. Each lesson typically requires 45-60 minutes to complete.


Jim, can you elaborate further ?


Thank you
Roberto

Here's some information from InnerWorkings about their ASP.NET 4.5 course:
http://www.innerworkings.com/catalog...5-in-visual-cs

In this Developer Program, you’ll find a large variety of C# coding challenges that will get you firmly on the road to building and deploying ASP.NET 4.5 Web applications. You’ll cover key aspects of ASP.NET 4.5 related to building web pages and using server controls, creating consistent web applications, and delivering useful and attractive web pages. You’ll also practice connecting your Web applications to a database and using a variety of data integrity, user profile, and stability features to help you create secure web applications with ASP.NET 4.5. Enjoy!
  • ASP.NET 4.5 Website Structure
    • Introducing master pages
    • Introducing Themes
    • Using the navigation web server controls
    • Using the site navigation API
  • Building ASP.NET 4.5 Pages
    • Introduction to user controls
    • Validating user input in Web Forms
    • AJAX-enabling an ASP.NET website
    • Controlling page updates with the UpdatePanel control
    • Using jQuery Selectors to create a Filterable Table
    • Traversing and Manipulating using jQuery
  • Designing and Building ASP.NET 4.5 Websites
    • Styling a web form
    • Introduction to web server controls
    • Control state
    • Creating a new class by extracting logic from a form
  • Managing Data in ASP.NET 4.5
    • Querying a SQL Server Database
    • Using a GridView data-bound control with an ObjectDataSource component
    • Querying with LINQ To Entities
    • Inserting, updating & deleting
    • Creating a model from the database
    • Using web server control events
  • Securing ASP.NET 4.5 Web Applications
    • Authenticating your web site using simple login controls
    • Role management
    • Introducing profiles
    • Structured exception handling

I'd point out 2 things: First, as the title indicates, the course is C# only unlike the book which is C# and VB. Second, the book should be thought of as "recommended reading" or "additional information" that helps you with the course. But, the lessons and challenges in the course aren't specifically build around Planet Wrox or any of the book content. So, you'll be working and solving all new problems with InnerWorkings.
