Book Review: Pro C# 2005 and the .Net Platform, Third Edition by Andrew Troelsen

Pro C# 2005 and the .NET 2.0 Platform, Third Edition

This book is clear, well written and does not sacrifice any depth despite its broad coverage. Although targeted at developers with a few years experience, it is one of those rare books that is good no matter what your level of experience. The style is very polished and the book’s topics flow easily into one another.

One notable and surprising omission of .Net version 2.0 features was the BackgroundWorker class. This is a very useful feature of .Net 2.0

This is one of two Apress books that I purchased 6 months ago, after researching what books were on offer for version 2.0 of the .Net framework (the other was Pro ASP.NET 2.0, which I hope to post a short review presently). As an aside, I’m not sure whether Apress still offer this, but when I purchased this book I was also able to download a free, fully searchable eBook as well.
