i am looking for a book for a beginner - i would like it to come with a disc that contains sample programs and the software needed to write c# programs - also i would like one that gives the user simple assignments at the end of each topic to test whether they have understood it - i need to get familiar with variables, if statements, do while statements, loops, simple data validation, data types etc, basically the sort of things the beginner needs to know - please give me your recommendations
