There has been a noticeable increase in people asking where to start C# recently. So I have been across a couple of forums and pulled together a list of some useful links and resources.

Web Tutorials

Home and Learn Tutorial

CodeProject Tutorial P1
CodeProject Tutorial P2
CodeProject Tutorial P3
CodeProject Tutorial P4
CodeProject Tutorial P5

DreamInCode - Debugging

Helpful Tips

DreamInCode - How to efficiently search the Internet
DreamInCode - Debugging Tips

Useful Resources

These may be slightly more advanced than 'beginner'

Blog - Mastering VS2010 debugging
Blog - VS2010 Debugging Improvements

MSDN resources:

Feel free to contribute more / criticise current links and I will add/remove them.

Despite this thread being dead for 3 months, i am going to add on to it.

Another great resource is [Lynda.com](http://www.lynda.com/C-training-tutorials/1022-0.html).

Also the HeadFirst Series and Murach's C# 2010 book are pretty good resources.

Other ways of learning are using forums, expirementing, taking classes, and my personal favorite... Google!

It's fine to add to it, it's stickied so that it is seen regardless of how inactive it is :)

Recently I was looking for books about C#. Since this thread doesn't have alot of book suggestions I'll add the results of my search to it in the hope that it will be useful to others as well.
