I have attempted a number of different XNA books after I went during the 2.0 model of this ebook, and located them missing compared. This ebook disguise every thing particularly completely, together with bone animation of 3d versions (in the fps tutorial), lovely respectable solution to manage your code, etc. And the reviewers complaining concerning the codes within the book.... turns out not to take into account that they need to obtain the resource code for the ebook from the web site, or they would have none of these difficulties. The ebook clarify the right way to do the codes, its no longer imagined to be a resource code repository, if you happen to can simply open the resource codes with a textual content editor.

If you are a overall beginner in programming, already solid with XNA, don't need a e-book you will return to once you end examining it, and cannot obtain the resource code from the web site, then stay away from this book... if you'd like a e-book to take you faraway from the beginner level, one who you are going to return to afterward should you put out of your mind anything, this booklet is an excellent asset.
