About the Book: Murach's C# 2010: Training & Reference
This is the latest edition of our best-selling C# book. The content continues to evolve with the language, of course, but one thing has stayed the same over the years: We still call this"the C# book you'll wish you'd bought first" because it gets you developing professional Windows Forms applications without any wasted time or effort.
Why we say this is the C# book you'll wish you'd bought first
1: A FAST start, coupled with Visual Studio productivity
This book starts you off using all the best features of Visual Studio so you can begin productive work almost immediately. In fact, it has you create a simple business application in chapters 2 and 3 so you can see right away how the core features of C# and of Visual Studio work. Download these chapters for free, and see for yourself.
2: Object-oriented programming made clear
When it comes to object-oriented programming, too many C# books resort to whimsical but useless metaphors, like illustrating objects by creating animal classes such as mammals, cats, and dogs. Then they leave it up to you to figure out how to transfer these concepts to business applications.
In contrast, we present business objects such as customers, invoices, and products so you can see how OOP is used to create multi-tiered applications in the real world.
3: Confidence in handling business requirements
Learning to use C# classes and OOP techniques isn't enough. You also have to know how to code for the tasks that are required in most business applications. So this book builds on your skills in incremental steps to teach you how to validate data, handle numeric, date, and string data, work with loops, arrays, and collections, code methods and event handlers, handle exceptions, and work with text, binary, and XML data.
4: A solid grounding in database programming
You can't create business applications without handling databases. So this book teaches you how to use C# 2010's tools for rapid application development, like the data sources feature and data handling controls. It also includes introductions to ADO.NET coding and to LINQ, a feature that lets you query almost any data source…not just databases…using the C# language.
Powerful stuff that's glossed over in a chapter or two in most other C# books.
5: No side-stepping of business requirements
This book presents complete, non-trivial applications that illustrate what you need to know on the job. Studying applications like these is the key to mastering C# development, but you won't find them in many other C# books.
6: Practice exercises solidify your skills
The exercises at the end of each chapter let you apply what you've learned, giving you valuable, hands-on experience. And because we provide the starting points for these exercises here at our site, you get the maximum amount of practice in a minimum of time.
7: Paired pages make learning a breeze
If you haven't ever used one of our books before, you may want to download a sample chapter before you buy. If you do, you'll discover why programmers are so impressed by our"paired pages" format and why college students ask their instructors for Murach books. Not only does this format make learning easier and faster, but it also makes this the ideal reference book when you're on the job.
