Generally a very good book which has a lot of valuable information in it. However, this time there are far too many lines, boxes, annotations etc. that makes reading the book quite hard. The layout concept in general is great and I have read several other "Head First" books already, but particular this C# one is just too "noisy" for me. It's hard to remember and finding relevant information because all the pages are so massive and densed and chaotic in terms of text and illustration. Less would be more in this case. Further I am missing some more intro text. Instead, right away, it starts with a WPF example where exlanations of many important aspects of the C# and WPF lingo is just missing. Makes it hard to follow and understand what's being described. For an advanced reader/programmer these issues might be neglectable, being a beginner, requires already some knowledge about what WPF is and what it is used for etc.

Es ist nicht das erste Buch von Head First Serie,das ich gekauft habe, aber im Vergleich zu Anderen Qualität von Papier und auch schwarz/weiße Bilder gegen farbige, aber na ja, man kann sich daran gewöhnen. Über Qualität von Inhalt versuche ich später etwas zu schreiben

HASH(0x8eefa528) von 5 Sternen Good book, too bad it's not current 14. Januar 2014
Von C. Mercredi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It would have been nice to use this book with the most recent copy of visual studio express considering it was published in August 2013, and I purchased the kindle book in December 2013. It looks like the publisher had some unlucky timing with all of the Microsoft updates.

"Unfortunately, the book went to press before VS2013 came out, which is why it's based on VS2012. I'm currently working on a VS2013 update to the book for future printings (I'll definitely release a full PDF of the first three chapters with the VS2013, and also a summary of the updates so readers with the VS2012 version won't miss anything -- there are changes to individual pages, but none of the learning changed). There aren't that many changes, but there are enough that will break some projects. Your problem might be related, but it might not be -- we'll figure it out!" - AndrewStellman on the O'Reilly Forums

It's a good book, you just have to use VS2012, and then try to figure out how to apply the changes to the new version in 2013. If you can't keep up with the changes, or figure out how to make it work, perhaps programming isn't in the stars for you. I recommend the printed version rather than the kindle copy as it's too difficult to follow the code examples with. The images don't scale properly.

I'm really happy with learning how to program with game like examples. It makes learning programming alot more interesting than drilling through "hello world" or "I'm a loop" examples all day long. I really wish the update to 2013 happened this year and it was free :)

HASH(0x8eefa738) von 5 Sternen Excellent instructional approach to C# software development 6. Januar 2014
Von Jeff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Head First C# takes a hands-on, instructional approach to object-oriented programming in C# in a casual tone, making the information easier to absorb. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking to learn how to develop applications in C#. For a more detailed review, please read on.


I’m an IT professional with about 10 years of industry experience in various roles. Most of my work has been in client-facing roles in Systems Integration, Professional Services, IT Project Management, and IT Management. Despite getting a degree in Computer Science in 2005, I had yet to have a job where my primary responsibility was programming and software development—the entire reason I got into this field.

I was always a good programmer, but other intangible skills had always positioned me to be more useful in other hybrid roles between business and technology stakeholders. I decided recently to move the career needle back towards my passion, and so I began the retraining process. I had done some programming in my various positions, but as it was never my primary responsibility, I was a bit rusty.


I settled on Head First C# because I was looking for a book that would ease me back into the world of Object-oriented programming, as well as C# as most of my education had been in C++. I was also looking for a book that would reinforce my learning with plenty of questions, exercises, and labs. This book does both of those things very well.

With a degree in Computer Science, I obviously understood OOP concepts and was comfortable with seeing code and syntax. What I wasn’t comfortable with at this point was my ability to recall all I had learned, and I was unsure what had changed since I last beat up the semicolon key on my keyboard. With repetition, turning questions back on me to get me thinking, exercises, labs, and engaging examples, this book allowed me to gain back that confidence and learn plenty of new things as well.


The book starts right off with having you write a Windows Store App in C# to get your feet wet with C#, programming, and XAML. This is a confidence builder for newbies to programming and for those of us returning, a nice “Welcome back!” After that, all exercises go back to using Windows Forms to focus on teaching OOP, Computer Science concepts, and C# until XAML is reintroduced in chapter 10. For me, this allowed me to rediscover familiar concepts at my own pace while learning some new ones.

The second half of the book (everything after Lab #2) moves into building Windows Store Applications with XAML, some intermediate topics like exception handling, events, and LINQ, and good software design using the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern. The book really takes the time to try to teach you not just programming, but software development.


Head First C# is a good, all-in-one teaching tool for anyone looking to get their hands into C# development. Beginner and intermediate developers alike will get some value out of this book.
I’m finishing up the final lab in the book this week and will be moving onto a combination of C# reference books and exam prep guides next as I work towards my MCSD. Head First C# definitely put me down the right road to be able to attack those goals head on!


As with all technical publications, it is recommended to utilize online resources such as forums, errata, and other supplements made available by the publisher to get the optimal learning experience.

As I’ve seen other reviews note, if you’re not using Windows 8, you need to use an accompanying PDF with WPF equivalents to the XAML Windows Store App exercises. The authors clearly state this on page xxxviii: “We wrote this book using Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows 8 and Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop.” They also state that Chapters 3 through 9 don’t require Windows 8, and you can do the rest of the exercises using WPF desktop apps instead of Windows 8 apps using a provided PDF. I personally just upgraded to Windows 8, though I felt it important to clarify that all of this is clearly noted in the “What you need for this book” section of the introduction.

HASH(0x8eefa978) von 5 Sternen Example driven learning suits me very well. 21. Oktober 2013
Von Ethan Schartman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I prefer to learn new programming languages through example, so the emphasis here on hands-on projects that are continually elaborated suits me very well. The projects are engaging and easy to recall and by extension so are their lessons. As an example, the Beehive Management System project nicely motivates the use of (introduced earlier) inheritance and interfaces to improve code organization and avoid duplication of effort. I also enjoy the book's quirky humor and the sprinkling of crossword and "pool" puzzles throughout are more engaging than standard text book exercises. The index is excellent, including correlating concepts with projects which makes it easier to locate desired content when you can't quite remember keywords but you remember reading about it while working with the scary clown class.

Even though I am developing on Windows 7, I didn't mind the Windows 8 specificity as it maintains the flow of the book's content.

HASH(0x8eefacd8) von 5 Sternen Highly engaging, with focus on projects that makes it easy to learn C# 16. Oktober 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a great book for learning C#. It teaches you to actually write code by having you build real programs, not just giving you theory and a few lines of example code. It's extremely readable, and has a heavy focus on practice and skill. There are so many projects, and many of them are games, which makes them fun to build. There are also a lot of pencil-and-paper puzzles. It really leaves you feeling like you can actually build programs on your own, and gives you a really good understanding of a lot of concepts without making you feel like you had to do a lot of work for it. And I didn't get bored at all!

Also, I saw that some reviewers point out that for Windows 7 or earlier, you need to download a PDF where you build WPF versions of the projects. This is true, but like the book and PDF both point out, there's not a lot of flipping back and forth. There's a complete replacement for most of chapter 1, and five replacement pages for chapter 2, and then you don't have to touch the PDF again until almost page 500. And it also points out that the PDF is useful even if you have Windows 8, because you can use it to learn WPF as well as Metro.

HASH(0x8eefaef4) von 5 Sternen Windows 8 - Store Apps? Luke Warm Reception right off the bat. 22. März 2015
Von TruthBTold - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Windows 8, Windows Store Apps - I'll pass.

I purchased this book with a few others at the same time. My OS HDD crashed with Windows 8.1 about a week later and I had to reinstall everything. During the installation process of Windows 8 and upgrade to 8.1, the system and OS went belly up again, so I decided to reimage with Windows 7 and be done with it.

Once completed and done with my other books, I went to tackle this C# book finally, and realized that this book wants you *NEEDS YOU* to have Windows 8 installed, as the first exercise and chapter of this book is entirely based on you making a Windows Store App. The version of Visual Studio you need is unavailable on Windows 7, so I would have to step back into the gloomy arena of trying to go back to an OS that just killed over 2x on me within the last week, when honestly, I just don't have the time and really didn't want to have to upgrade my OS just to follow along with a book on C#.

I want to pick up a book, and start coding... and the fact that Windows 8 is pretty much a prereq to get going and started on the right page was something I could not look past. I also wasn't every interested in creating a game or Store APP to start. I wanted to learn the ins and outs of C# from statements-to clauses, namespaces, methods, loops and more, while this book wanted me to get back on Windows 8 and create a Windows Store Apps and play with Invading Aliens.

While this may be extremely beneficial and a great way to get into C# (I loved their HTML book) this book just took too many liberties for me to be able to follow along and I was turned off as I am totally opposed to going back to WIndows 8.1 (I'd rather do the Windows 10 preview, or just flat out Install Linux Destro, then mess back around with 8.1.)

If you are on Windows 8 and like the Head First style I believe that this is a good resource. However, I am literally looking for something more mature and technical, and doesn't require me to be on Windows 8 right now, as I would rather go to other options then back to 8.1 (And this is someone who is a Microsoft Head, 8.1 was extremely kind to me other than the crashes.)

K.I.S.S --- While I am not opposed to giving this a fair go if I decide to spin up a Windows 8 VM again, I'd much rather just find another resource, go to technet, pluralsight, and find another resource then upgrade back to 8.1

They make the exercises available as a separate download for people on Windows 7, but that takes away the ability to learn the material at work and while I am out and about on my mobile devices as well.
