Default Has anyone tried Beginning VC#?

Hello people,

I have a question. I did use Beginning Java 1.4, and as you know it is a great book. Especially the way Ivor Horton explains concept about OOP with detailed examples. Now I'm wondering that is Beginning VC# written on the same way? Can anyone explain? I have to buy a C# book with OOP concepts.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Didn't Ivor write Beginning Visual C++?

I dreamt about learning C sharp tonight, but I didn't get the job

After going on a week's course after knowing java for 4 1/2 years, I can say they are pretty much identical. There are a few differences, but not many.

imports are called "using"

Also, files are defined with "namespaces", indicating the project they belong to.

For example

namespace MyProject
     class One {}
     class Two {}
     class Three {}

Primitives are now objects.

And obviously - the loss in portability.

But, back to the point in question, I have no doubts that the books were written side by side.
