"He's right, very badly done" - by Clarence Tunstall on 29-NOV-2013

I wanted to learn how ActionLink works, did a search and the only place it was located was part of the example and a question. I read through the section and did not find any reference as to how it was used, syntax, or anything, but there was a question on it. I don't see how anyone can pass an exam with this guide. Also, I wanted to learn more about partial views, but the section it was located had no explanation how they worked, just how to set them up with the wizard type approach which real programmers want little of because if we don't know how its set up programmatically, then how will we know how to debug it? This book is possibly a huge waste of my time.

"Badly written, full of errors" - by Gregory Kieffer on 16-OCT-2013

I am quite disappointed of this book, it is full of errors, starts some subjects out of the blue. I cannot recommand it until it is properly reviewed and corrected.
Beside, the goods parts are litterally copy/paste from MSDN or other articles from the web. The author should be ashamed!
