HAi Everybody,
i want to improve my programing skills and knowldge in .net could any body please suggest me an advice which book is more convient to improve my skills , and easy understand .

Rajesh's Advice on Wednesday, April 04, 2012 :

Read, code, code, code and code and share and discuss code.  This is the only way to improve any skills.  As far as the book goes the following may be helpful..

- C# in depth (Manning publication, by John Skeet)

Go through various sites and blogs, like codeproject, dotnetfunda, MSDN etc.  These resources has wealth of information about how to go about building up your .NET skills..

After mastering c#, go with OOP and design patterns books.
-  For starters, Head First Design pattern is a good one (though it is in Java, it doesn' matter as the concepts are universally the same).
- Learn about asp.net web programming.

For basic, visit asp.net and look for videos here....and then you can move on to advanced stuff.  Understand, JavaScript and jQuery as they will become part of your development tool if you are working on web related projects...

So, in a nutshell, its not an easy task.  Its a matter of planning your time and smartly working through all these areas.

All the best.

In my experience i will tell that do not jus read code, do not just read concepts READ AND IMPLEMENT. what ever you read try to make a small sample on it. Samples helps you a lot. If you do samples you can completely believe what you have read and that knowledge will be almost permanent. and one more thing try not to copy paste the codes from net while learning. do it your self.
