C# 3.0 Design Patterns
Use the Power of C# 3.0 to Solve Real-World Problems
By Judith Bishop Publisher: O'Reilly Media Released: December 2007 Pages: 320

C# 3.0 Design Patterns by Judith Bishop is a good book prefaces on various design patterns. This book may not be a reference book but can be a good text book for anyone who want to learn various patterns using C#.

This book starts with introductory chapter on patterns, UML & some features in C#. Then the author takes ride to various patterns starting with structural, creational & behavioral. In each chapter author has explained each pattern using simple day-life example (illustration without code), basic coding example & then real-life coding example. This ‘pattern’ helps anyone to understand what is the design pattern & how to use it?

Occasionally each chapter also highlights important features of C# & significance with pattern.

In last chapter author discusses future of design pattern.

Overall I’ll highly recommend this book for anyone who want to learn Design Patterns using C#.
