Book on C# 3.0

I know a little bit about C#, but now I really want to learn it, so I've decided to get a good book to teach myself.
I have the enough money to buy only one book, which book on C# 3.0 should I buy?

Frankly, I would make use of the documentation that's freely available on MSDN to start with, as well as the thousands of free tutorials you can find with the help of Google.

Welcome to the C# Station Tutorial.  This is a set of lessons suited for beginning to intermediate programmers or anyone who would like to gain familiarity with the C# programming language.  These lessons will help you get a quick head-start with C# programming. 

To get started, you will need a compiler and an editor. There are several options for obtaining a compiler to write C# programs.  A free option is to download the .NET Frameworks SDK and use Notepad.  Of course there are many editor and IDE options available, so see the Tools section to select the option that's right for you. Most of the examples in these tutorials run as console programs.  Microsoft Visual Studio .NET is also available in multiple versions as well as a free download for Visual Studio Express tools, including Visual C# Express.

This tutorial is a work in progress.  It's quality is a product of volunteer reviews and valuable feedback received from many readers.  Please visit periodically for the latest updates and new lessons.

Once you've completed this tutorial, you may be interested in additional resources to continue learning C#.  There are additional Articles on this site and a Links section will guide you to many high-quality web sites that specialize in certain .NET technologies. 

I hope you enjoy the tutorial, and best of luck!

I agree with Mike, however if you really need a book to start with, go for Murach's ASP.NET 3.5 Web Programming with C# 2008 at http://www.murach.com/books/acs8/index.htm

There is a wealth of free tutorials that it could take you months to work through it all.

It's hardly a C# book, is it?

It is an ASP.NET book but everything is written in C#.  The business layer and data layer are written in C# and could be used by either a web app or a windows forms app.  There is plenty of sample code regarding LINQ to SQL, partial classes, extension methods, oo patterns, etc.


Good luck,

Does it explain C#?  Such as what variables are, the fundamentals of OOP in C#, control of flow, collections, generics, delegates, exception handling etc? Or is it that the code samples happen to be in C#?  The questioner wants a book to help him or her learn C# specifically.

I've got loads of books on all apsects of the .NET framework where the code samples are in C#, but I wouldn't offer them to someone wanting to learn how the language works. I might, if I had written one of them, but that might be seen as shameless plugging.

Application created in new version of .NET (3.0 or 3.5) can use the library created in older version of .NET(i.e.-1.0 or 2.0)?
Hi All, I am using Visual Studio .NET compiler for compiling my application . We have plugins (as library) which the user can write by their own in .NET . We are building our code in Visual Studio 2005 but we have already some plug-ins which are written in previous versions of Visual Studio (i.e. 2002 and 2003). Is these plug-ins will work with the new build of the application or I need to build these plug-ins as well in Visual Studio .NET 2005. These plugins are created as library. Is their any differences between .NET 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 because of which the old libraries (created in o...

.NET 3.0 or .NET 2.0?
I'm going to move my exiting software to .net soon. I'm just wondering if I should wait for the .NET 3.0 framework to be released or if I can start with the 2.0 now? I'd say you can go ahead and move your code to .Net 2.0 as .Net 3.0 uses the CLR version 2.0.Basically, .net 3.0 is .net 2.0 PLUS some new features for presentation (GUI), communication and workflow process.  So the compiler as well as the language features used by the 2.0 runtime will be the same in 2.0 and 3.0"Never argue with an idiot; He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experienc...

ORA-1722 using PB5.0.03 and SQL*NET 2.3.3.0.0

When we try to change the value of a numeric field, for example from 13 to 12, we get an ORA-1722 when we save the changes back to the database. We have tried the connection parameter disablebind=0 and it works fine, we don't get the error, but we need that parameter set to 1 because we are using stored procedures as data sources for some datawindows in our application. ...
