Author Jack Purdum uses knowledge gained from more than 25 years of teaching experience to give you this thorough, yet easy-to-understand introduction to object-oriented programming with C#. Each chapter reinforces the programming philosophy and concepts of object-oriented programming, while real-world situations demonstrate how to design, create, test, and deliver your programs.

    Comments about oreilly Beginning Object-Oriented Programming with C#:

    I am referring to the book to learn object oriented programming by C Sharp. I am new to it. I worked on C but not Object Oriented language. This book so far has answered every question that I had. Also Jack has put it up so well. If you follow all of them. You'll understand OOP very well. Everything from the Intallation, about the tool, the subject, sample codes, answer of everything is in it. THank you so much Jack
