Book Cover

I have started to review this book. It is a "must-have" for all those working commercially with Visual Studio. There are many useful tips within this book on how to work more efficiently with Visual Studio and the time saved from just one tip could repay the cost of the book.

At $15.99 for the PDF, it is a bargain that should not be missed by any C# or VB.NET Developer.
