A Very Nice Pocket Reference

By Viro

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly C# Language Pocket Reference:

I've found this little book to be very useful. I'm in the process of learning C#. When I'm looking to do something, but am not sure what the exact syntax is or, hell, if it's possible: I'll flip through this book.

This book is what it bills itself as: a "Pocket Reference." It's function is to be a concise and streamlined C# reference document.

If want to read-up on C#, but don't want to plunk down the cash for a larger How-To volume, then I would suggest using C# Language Pocket Reference as a road-map to the more fleshed-out information on the MSDN site.

C# Language Pocket Reference Review

By Michael Blake

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly C# Language Pocket Reference:

The general language coverage is very good. Very disappointed in the ADO section. It's like someone else wrote the ADO section. The examples do NOT give a good example of how the objects work together. One single diagram would help. Explaining the general functionlity and then creating a DataAccess object would have been much better...

On page 391, we have just made a web service and are creating a CONSOLE app to test it (?). The text mentions to get the address of the web service DLL because "you will need it when you build the client application". Then, in the client application there is NO REFERENCE TO THE DLL ADDRESS. THE CODE DOES NOT COMPILE. I had to go the MSDN to find out what to do.

C# Language Pocket Reference Review

By bernard

Comments about oreilly C# Language Pocket Reference:

This is a great little reference book, but I did not buy it.

Why ?

Well, I spent 15 minutes in the bookstore going through it page-by-page and could not find any coverage on class inheritance !!!

What's up with that ? Please include a section on inheritance, just as you have a section on interfaces!

Great book otherwise..

C# Language Pocket Reference Review

By Doug Domeny

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly C# Language Pocket Reference:

Informative and well organized. Good TOC. Includes an index, which is a very nice feature missing in most O'Reilly pocket references (at least the ones I have). Doesn't cover C# documentation comments, eg, summary. Attributes are not covered very well.

TIP: If you're thinking of buying the VB.NET Language Pocket Reference, DON'T. See my review of that book. I recommend C# and VB.NET Conversion Pocket Reference instead.
