    Comments about oreilly C# 24-Hour Trainer, 2nd Edition:

    I have programmed in several languages, and I wanted to learn to program in C#. This book has been very helpful in meeting that goal.

    The extensive examples and exercises were a great way to learn the language. I am a learn by doing type of student, and this book suited me perfectly. If one takes the time to do the exercises, learning C# is a foregone conclusion.

    Also, the online videos are well crafted, numerous, and help iron out some of the trickier exercises.
