This is a good guide to ASP.NET MVC. It's divided into three parts: Introduction, Details, and "Delivering Successful MVC Projects".

The first part in particular is excellent, as it follows a hands-on approach with the creation of a simple e-commerce application. There's excellent emphasis on unit-testing; almost every feature you add has unit-tests listed right behind it.

The second part delves into the details of the main MVC building blocks. Most of these were touched upon in part 1, and part 2

This book is amazing. For a beginner on ASP.NET MVC, this might be a little overhead but it really covers how the framework processes and goes a lot under the covers.

I believe this is a great book to learn ASP.NET MVC from. Well structured, simple language, sufficient examples and practical tips.

MVC is a must for your web app and this book not only teaches you how to use this framework but also how to extend and customize it!

I especially liked the first half of the book and the emphasis the authors placed on testing. Finally a book that demonstrates the way to do it, rather than just saying, "and of course you'd want to do testing here..." I got bogged down in the middle of the book (and set it aside for several months) as it gets into some pretty technical stuff and ditches the tutorial of the first half. Understandable, I guess, due to the nature of the content. I'm sure it will serve as a good reference...if I ev ...more
An excellent book to learn MVC3. The authors' style is readable and engaging and there are tons of code samples to follow. I think that they may have addressed the topics of dependency injection and Entity Framework a bit too early. They are essential topics to building a flexible MVC app, but can be a bit daunting for the newbie (OK, the book says "pro" in the title, but chapter 4 felt a bit early).

If you're a developer looking to learn the newer web technologies, this book lays a good foundati
An excellent book about MVC3. I am giving it four stars because there were quite a few typos and coding errors that I easily solved. But regardless, this book teaches you a lot and shows you many great tips regarding MVC3 and unit testing your code. If you want to be up and running pretty quickly, then this is a book for you.
It's a great book for learning ASP MVC. It doesn't baby you, but it does give many examples and tips.

I did skip over a lot of sections that I didn't think I would need.

Maybe it would've gotten 5 stars if I were more interested in the subject matter.
Adam clearly has a lot of experience with MVC. His prior book on MVC 2 had some great code for writing "wizard" pages which I wish he had kept for this edition. This book is still full of great code and insight into using the technology.

Clear writing helps make an advanced topic easier to understand. Freeman has become my go-to tech writer for new topics.
