"Microsoft ASP.NET Skip A Step (or four)" - by NatCh on 15-MAY-2013

That's what this thing *should* be called.

It's difficult enough to pick up new programming skills without having to stop and figure out what steps are left out of EVERY exercise.

I just finished chapter seven, covering Master Pages, Themes and Skins. The "Quick Reference" section at the end of the chapter, which is supposed to quickly recap doing the things covered in the chapter, is all about WebParts and WebPart controls, whatever those are. I don't know because the book hasn't covered them yet.

This thing is egregiously badly done, somewhere between incompetent and fraudulent. I'm doubly disappointed as I've had good experiences with other books in the "Step By Step" series.

I'm done with it. I'll try another book.

I fervently suggest you do the same.
