Good by itself

Any additional comments?

Despite what others say: you do not need the companion book to get something out of this audiobook.
That being said: Do not listen to it with out having read other material and becoming familiar C#.
If one is having difficult with the materials, then listening to this book can help solidify one's understanding by emphasizing the main points and ideology instead of focusing on the minor details.
Most course books can get one lost in confusing detail laden run on sentences with confusing syntax.
The 30 second rewind in Audible is a godsend if you need a point reiterated.
I really benefited by listening to this book while walking outside.

Great companion to the actual book

Would you consider the audio edition of C# Programming for Beginners to be better than the print version?

This doesn't really apply for C# books. The audio book is purely a companion to the actual book due to the nature of the subject matter.


What was one of the most memorable moments of C# Programming for Beginners?

Teaches you everything about getting set up and the foundations of the subject matter.


Which scene was your favorite?

Listening to the narrator read out lines of code was amusing, difficult to do as it is a visual subject you need to read rather than listen to. The narrator did a great job given what he was reading.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I listened to it in the car on the way to work.


Any additional comments?

Don't get this without also buying the physical book. Due to the code examples you need to see them to fully understand the subject matter.
