Review

Completely revised for ASP.NET 2.0, this new edition of the best-selling ASP.NET Cookbook has everything you need to go from beginning to advanced Windows-based web site development using Microsoft’s popular Visual Studio 2005 and ASP.NET 2.0 developer tools. Written for the impatient professional, ASP.NET 2.0 Cookbook contains more than 125 recipes for solving common and not-so-common problems you are likely to encounter when building ASP.NET-based web applications.

The recipes in this book, which run the gamut from simple coding techniques to more comprehensive development strategies, are presented in the popular Problem-Solution-Discussion format of the O’Reilly Cookbook series. As with the first edition, every solution is coded in both C# and Visual Basic 2005.

While this book is good, and chock full of lots of helpful information, I really think this text is just too big to be very useful. Some books are made to be really massive texts, but when I think of a “Cookbook”, I don’t expect to be wading through 1,000 different pieces of food before I can cook my meal. I couldn’t even begin to imagine how heavy the text will be if there were a version 3 in the future.
