    c# books

    I normally program in c, c++ using win32 (not MFC). I now need to learn c# using Visual Studio 2010/2012. As there are loads of books available about c#, please would you advise which are the ones recommended (or avoided!)

    Hope that helps!

    Re: c# books

    Thanks. That's just what I'm looking for. I've also found the c# language specification document tucked away in the Microsoft Visual Studio nested folders which is a great help.

    Incidentially I've come across c++/cli of which I was not aware. Is this any good/recommended and is it worth the trouble pursuing it or just go all out for c#?

    I find the books from APress to be good. They're well written and relevant to the topic. You can also get them in PDF format which is what I do.

    Not too much experience with C++/CLI. However, I encourage you to just go for C#. The syntax seems (to my eye) cleaner without significant loss of performance.
