Teach Yourself ASP. NET 3. Feb 20, at pm UTC. Programming books have lots of exercises in them. I was wondering if people do every single exercise when reading a book, or just a selection at the end of each chapter?
Well I don't care for the books that teach you a chapters worth of knowledge and then throw exercises at you. That said, yes, I do do every exercise and I even get books I have just to do the exercises to help me keep up on programming. Lippman, Lajoie and Moo 5th Edition. Do people really buy multiple editions of the same book? Do new editions really vary by that much? I always though a new edition was somewhere between updating existing material that is now out of date, and releasing the same book more than once to get more money without creating new content under the pretence of updating the existing content.
Who does every book exercise? - C++ Forum
If the new edition differs significantly from the previous one and is adding, rather than updating, a significant amount of content then it should be released as a second volume, not a second edition. Whenever I buy a technical book quite rare because I prefer to read philosophy and literature, and rely on practice and the Internet for technical things I just get the most recent edition and read it once or twice doing whichever exercises strike my fancy. Is that a lazy way to learn? Would it be better to do all of the exercises?
