Default Source Code Issue


I've just bought the book and downloaded the source code. In working through Chapter 1 the book asks you to write some code into the provided projects to illustrate the functionality. However the downloaded projects already contain the code / amendments that the book is asking you to make. Is this correct or am I misunderstanding something?
See pages 40/41.

Typically we put a copy of the final code into the download. This is in case you have trouble following the steps when creating your own project that matches the code.

Ideally you would create the code described in Chapter 1 (starting on pg 28) from scratch. You can then check your work against the sample download. This helps quickly resolve things where someone accidentally mis-types a sample. If the download works, then you know that what you've done following the steps is missing something and its easier to resolve on your own.

Good luck.
