Murach’s ASP.NET 3.5 Web Programming with VB 2008

Product Description
“This book is by far the best computer programming book I have ever bought. You can go into my upstairs closet and find 20-30 books that I have purchased since the days of VB6…. All together, they could not add up to as much information as you have given me in the first 11 chapters of this book.” (A developer’s comment on the previous edition of Murach’s ASP.NET)Already know how to code Visual Basic 2008 desktop applications?

  1. I’m my job I review hundreds of books a year. I only publically comment on the really good ones and this one is super !

    If I were going to teach a course on ASP.NET Development in VB, this is the book that I would use. It’s complete, well written, up to date with all the latest ASP.NET technology, and aesthetically pleasing !

  2. I’m a former Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) and Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT). I’ve now retired from the traveling consultant and trainer role to settle down with a single company. I’m still immersed in Microsoft technologies and I find the Murach series of books to be great learning tools especially for those techies new to a particular technology like ASP.NET and VB 2008.

    Murach’s ASP.NET 3.5 web programming with VB 2008 will teach you the important skills you need (and then some) for creating professional IIS / ASP.NET-based websites. Although I am very experienced on the technologies in question already, I’m always interested in reading new books that appear to be able to teach me something new. After reading/researching other books from WROX, APRESS (both of which I like) I decided to add Murach to my list of publishers for great learning resources on Microsoft technologies.

    I’m looking forward to Murach’s SQL 2008 book due out shortly.

    No one book will be able to make someone a master on a product. Some of the most valuable learning you’ll do is on the job writing applications and websites. However, well written and content-rich books such as this one are important for getting started.

    Enjoy!

  3. Found the book very easy to read. Book offers clear, concise and exhaustive coverage of all aspects of ASP.NET 3.5. Murach has been my favorite programming book publisher for years.

  4. I picked this book up at my local store the price is better than many others on the same scale. The information included is a great start for beginners and will be a nice desk book for people who already know ASP.Net but want to learn 3.5 or need a book that covers a wide array of topics.

  5. I bought this book for a class and am not a great source of reviews, but can let you know this. Do not go for the aesthetics. This is a really good book. I havn’t had a chance to look at the VB.Net book for Dummies (if there is one), but this book has guidelines for a step by step flow for beginners. Later in the book it starts to get complex, but by then you already are prepared for it.
