  • Learning:Java, C#

Posted 28 September 2012 - 04:19 AM

I have been fooling around with C# for a small year, on the very casual level. Things are getting a bit more serious now, and I can feel the need for serious guidance and reference sometimes. Besides that I have an academy course in Java that will also begin soon.

I have previously dabbled with "C# All in One for Dummies", 2010, from the ....for Dummies series and "Sams C# Unleashed with the .NetFramework 3.5", 2008.

They were okay as introduction and such, but I will need something to look in as a reference in those dark hours of confusion. Besides that I would like any personal recommendations you can share, so all C# related material is welcome.

And the same goes for Java, I have ordered "Java Concepts, 6th Edition, International Studen Edition" by Cay S. Horstmann as it was required for the Course.

Unfortunately, people can only recommend books that they thought were good books. Books are relative to the person reading them. I programming book that I think is fantastic, another person might hate it.

I tend to read Wrox books and Microsoft Exam training books. I think the Microsoft Exam books are fantastic references (but that's my opinion :) )

book#1 : Professional C# 4.0 and .NET 4

book#2 : published by APRESS in 2005 called : (Pro .NET 2.0 Code and Design Standards in C#) it's good and you can find it as a free e-book on the net

there's also a book called (Advanced Net Remoting (C Sharp Edition)) , it's old but it's very good.


And you check the threed of The Best Book for C#.
