I would suggest the authors include a short chapter about
various Toolbox controls so that beginners need not purchase another book. I
believe that it could be somewhat difficult to understand the content included in
this book without first understanding the fundamentals of ASP.NET. The author
provides code samples in C#, but I feel that it would be great if the authors
could provide code in Visual Basic 2005 as well as a separate code download.
Moreover, the authors should provide a project at the end of
the book so that readers can utilize it to experience the rich features of
ASP.NET 2.0. I would not recommend the book for novice programmers as they
would find it difficult to grasp the content on the book since it has been
written from the point of view of more advanced developers. I also feel that
the book price is little higher than it should be, and I hope the publisher
will take note of this point while publishing the next edition of the book.
