C# Book Recommendations
I'm interested in learning C# but I'm the kind of person who prefers learning from a tangible book rather than multiple sources scattered around the web. I prefer to use those as secondary sources.
I have some experience with the C language. I can write simple programs with user defined functions and understand the basic construction of a C program, however, I still consider myself novice.
I have absolutely no experience with an object oriented language though. What would you suggest as a good primary source to pick up at say Amazon?
Any information about reasons for recommending it would be helpful too! Thank you all!
You might be surprised how many books on C# might be in your library system if you live in a city. In Queens, there are very seriously at least 20X times as many books on C# as on C, so if this pattern holds else where you are in luck*.
Anyway, you should cross-post this to the product review forum
Programming Book and Product Reviews
as while the title is misleading, part of the original intent was I believe to include inquiries from people looking for reviews of books on topics.
* I'm not sure how they select books to buy in big modern library systems; I think the librarians themselves have input but I'm also sure years of computer searches are a factor because of this: You cannot search for a book on "C" (or "c"; you would think "C programming" would make this up, but...), but you can search for one on "C++" or "C#". So in Queens Central Library they have at least 2-3000+ computer books of the sort you would find in a computer bookstore (eg, 90% of them are published in the last five years) all together on a (large) set of shelves. There are more than one hundred on C++ but last time I was there, exactly 4 (!) that included "C" in the title. The librarians are trying to deny this of course...
