C# Books...

AntonyAntony Posts: 32Member
I am going to learn C# and wanted to find a good book. I am more interested in GUI programming. Until now I have found the following:
1) Teach Yourself C# In 21 Days
2) Teach Yourself Visual C# .NET 2003 In 24 Hours
3) Beginning Visual C#
As I said I am more interested in GUI programming thus a book that covers the language and the IDE would be great. Which one of the above is the best and of course if you have a different book to suggest then please do.
Meanwhile, I found two books the one is the C# Primer Plus and the other the Windows Form Programming With C#. The problem is that the first is only about the language and the second only GUI. The book Beginning Visual C# seems to merge the two things. You know anything about the book Beginning Visual C#?

    I bought SAMS Teach Yourself C# in 21 Days. It is an excellent book. It covers the main topics of the language in the first 1/2 - 3/4 of the book but at the end covers the main aspects of GUI programming. It also offers a chapter on Web Programming too. It is an excellent book and when finished makes excellent reference material. It provides many handy charts and tables that a progarmmer needs. It's up to you but I'd buy this book first, then buy Windows Forms Programing with C# - I was going to buy this next - never had the money (I'm a student).

    Happy reading/learning.

    I can recommend a very good book on C# I've just studied:

    Professional C# Programming

    written by 9 professional authors: Robinson, Allen, Cornes, Glynn, Greenvoss, Harvey, Nagel, Skinner and Watson. It consists all the necessary things you should get to know about C# and more of that!

    Don't buy such small book like "C# for a month ... ". It's not possible to learn the syntax well of such difficult programming language for a short time. This book I've just mentioned has about 1000 pages, and probably costs about $50 - $100, but you must invest if you want to work seriously.

    Here is the reference where is also its content:

    Good luck!
