Hello Derrick, I'm glad I read your article and knowing that it's okay/normal to feel overwhelmed when you move to another programming language, you mention buying and reading some books, which ones do you recommend for getting into C#/ from beginners to experts? Thanks.

Well I ended up buying several books over the course of two years but the biggest ones for getting started were these two.

The first is actually the Wrox study guide for the MSCD exam.. But the book is laid out excellently and the examples are all top notch. The second one brings the Gang of Four design patterns into the C# realm and makes them easier to understand.
