Need a Book ...

P: n/a

Hi ...

I need a good C# (2005) book that is (hopefully) something between a
tutorial and a reference; I'm looking for a book I can turn to to get up to
speed on Interfaces, Threading, Delegates, Events, etc. in an hour or two
and which might lead me to the next steps as required

The 2005 "Step By Step" (John Sharp) looks like a possibilty but the 2005
Core Reference (Donis Marshall) doesn't look so hot (???) .... btw, the
2002 Step By Step is available for a few bucks; much difference in the 2005
?

Basically, I'd like the equivalent of Balena's VB.NET Core Reference ... for
C# ... (would be nice if it weren't quite as BIG as the Balena book !)

Any suggestions ?

TIA

Hi,

I am using 'C# 2' from Michel de Champlain.
I use it as a reference and a source to learn the
language as well.

It covers the language C# 2, not the components
you might want to use.

Contents
Preface
1 Introducing C# and .NET
2 Classes, Objects, and Namespaces
3 Class Members and Class Reuse
4 Unified Type System
5 Operators, Assignments, and Expressions
6 Statements and Exceptions
7 Advanced Types, Polymorphism, and Accessors
8 Collections and Generics
9 Resource Disposal, Input/Output, and Threads
10 Reflection and Attributes
Appendices A C# 2.0 Grammar
B Predefined XML Tags for Documentation Comments References Index

(I cannot compare it to 'VB.NET Core Reference', because I do
not know the book.)
