Whats a good book for after I finish Head First C# 2nd edition"

Posted 05 June 2012 - 12:27 PM

I am almost through with the book Head First C# 2nd edition. I am looking for another book that would go more indept in C# after I finish it. I am writing allot of programs and not just reading the book. I just like a guide to learn with. I dont always have internet availble to me which is why I am looking for a book instead of just using internet.

Thanks

You could take the initiative and skim other books index, on say amazon, and see what's you are not certain on... That's my typical route.

Book of exercises? As in a project list?

How about all the stuff that comes up in the Visual Studio start page RSS feed? Like the suggested reading list?

What you're looking for is a reference book and for that I highly recommend:

It's very complete and up to date. Well written too.

I agree with Skydiver, Effective C# is the best for practice. And I ever used it and felt pretty fine. But if you are quite interested in a specific field, you'd better focus on and finds related books, as C# is quite a large topic to cover.
