    Hello all,

    I'm new to C#, and have spent the last few days fiddling with Visual C# Studio Express 2005. I've learned a little programming in the past - took a FORTRAN class last year at college, though procedural medium-level languages and high-level visual languages are obviously very (very) different. I'd like to think I've learned some good practices - our tutor learned to program on PDP-8s, so he's very much like "Remember to deallocate that array space, memory isn't free you know!". I'm liking the explicitness of C#, all the variable types are very clear and unambiguous; I wouldn't be worried about misusing these...

    ...Ahem. So yes, my question is: Recommend a C# book with lots of example assignments for someone of my level.

    O'RLY?

    Sorry. Had to be done.

    I went and bought the '...for Dummies' book yesterday. It's quite a gentle introduction to the nuts and bolts of the C# language - not much on how to manipulate Visual Studio yet. I understood the principles of programming languages like this one beforehand, so it's nice to be able to read through at a fair pace and pay full attention to the whys and wherefores rather than trying to understand what's actually going on. It's also cleared up a few general programming topics that I was fuzzy on, like number precision and various conventions for writing clear and legible code.
