Concise and Informative
This one gets you up and running with database prograaming with ASP.NET in a matter of few hours. In the process, it also provides you with useful real-world tips. Great book for getting your feet wet with ADO.NET.
The treatment is to-the-point and precise.
All the sample codes work.
The pathway followed is quite logical, starting from establishing connection to database, to various ways of reading and displaying records, followed by inserting and updating records, all using ADO.NET. Each chapter builds on the previous one, and the net effect is a coherent, easy-to-follow, enjoyable book. It really takes the complexities out of ADO.NET and helps us understand the simplicity behind the model.
The later chapters on componentization, performance etc are a real bonus.
Good value for money.

not bad for basic but shame about the last 2 chapters
on the whole this is a very good book for beginners
The last two chapters which i thought were the
most useful was RUSHED!!

The performance chapter should not have been a chapter
since it was non-existent

The most important chapter of all the bidding web site
construction, I failed to get it to work!! one error
after the other. For a book with so many authors, I
would have thought at least one of the would have had the
time to review the code for the last chapter.

I give this book a 3 but it deserves a 4.
Unless the code in the last chapter works, the last chapter
might as well not be there either

Great book from Chap 1-6
I went through this book. It is great for the beginner to ASP.Net. However, I think it is because there are many authors worked on this book. Its contents is NOT so integrated.

I felt I gain a lot from chap 1-6, however after ch7, it seems worked by another author. The concept between two of them has conflict. For example, the author ch1-6 said using ADO.net data adapter you don't need to open and close the data connection, but in ch7, the author said, you must close the connect obj after you used DataAdapter??

Their writting style are also different, after ch7, the contents is not so good and has a log of mistakes.
