Default Professional ASP.NET 4 in (C#)

Is reading Professional ASP.NET 4 in C# and VB after reading beginning asp.net 4 in c# and vb will give me a good understading of c# language in web context so I do not need to learn c# from more specific books?

I guess it all depends on what you want to learn. The Pro ASP.NET book has a strong focus on ASP.NET. It shows a lot of examples in C#, but it's not a C# book per se.

Personally, I would prefer one or more C# books next to a book like Pro ASP.NET 4, just to get a better understanding of C#.

Cheers,

Imar

Hi Imar,

I have a friend who does have the same question but he did not start yet. What is better for him? to start with c# and learn it first and then go with asp.net? or the reverse and why?

thanks

Again, it depends. It depends on your learning style, and what it is you need to learn.

If ASP.NET is the main focus, then start with my Beginning ASP.NET 4 in C# and VB or with Professional ASP.NET 4 in C# and VB. Both teach you a lot about ASP.NET, but you won't get all details on C# you might need. Once you feel you need to to dig deeper into C#, get yourself a dedicatad C# book.
