    Best places to learn C#

    Hello, I need to start learning c# because I start a job trial on monday and they use .Net frameworks. I'm doing some data inputting and thought it may be a good idea to at least try and learn the very basics of it so that if they do keep me on, my training will be a lot easier to complete.

    Just by looking through some syntax I notice it's pretty much the same as Java with the main method and classes etc. I struggled a little bit with Java although I had only been coding around 6 months.

    Can anyone give me any good links? I've got the official documentation page but I need somewhere I can learn the language in terms of doing some tutorial exercises.

    Can anyone suggest any good tuts?

    Regards,

    Lc.

    Microsofts' Visual C# Step by Step is an excellent book but doesn't cover ASP.NET. You might search for ASP.NET as this will generally cover C# in parallel.

    Thanks very much. I'll get that off Amazon. I actually found a really good tutorial as well: http://mottishaked.com/training/dot-net-tutorial.

    In your opinion, for someone who hasn't studied programming at all, would you say Java or C# is the best one to start with. In terms of documentation I want to go for Java. What do you think?

    Thanks again for the reply.

    Kind regards,

    LC.

    If you are going to be using C# within ASP.NET (that is, *NOT* C# as a stand-alone, create-a-windows-".exe"-executable product), then by far the best place to start is simply
    http://www.asp.net

    Assuming you will be doing web forms (likely, if you are using ASP.NET) you might start here:
    http://www.asp.net/web-forms

    Or maybe something like this:
    http://www.asp.net/mvc/tutorials/old...application-cs

    The site used to be better organized. Used to lead you through the tutorials in a useful order. But Macro$loppy just can't ever leave anything that works alone. They always have to "improve" their web sites nearly into unusability.

    Same thing with MSDN. But here's one good starting spot with MSDN:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa286485.aspx
    and then
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ywdtth2f.aspx

    I suggest you to buy a book which is available in the market. You can read them and do practice to solve the tutorials. In addition, MSDN is the best place to learn online.
