In just 24 step-by-step lessons of one hour or less, Sams Teach Yourself the ADO.NET Entity Framework will help you start using the ADO.NET Entity Framework to solve real-world business problems. This friendly, accessible book covers the entire framework, without ever becoming overwhelming or intimidating. You will learn how to build and query entity data models; perform advanced querying with Entity SQL and LINQ to Entities; create relationships, stored procedures, and transactions; integrate with WinForms, ASP.NET, and WCF Services; and even use native views, multiple entity sets, and IPOCO. Step-by-step instructions walk you through your most common questions, issues, and tasks... Q and As, Quizzes, and Exercises help you test your knowledge... "Did You Know?" tips offer insider advice and shortcuts... and "Watch Out!" alerts help you avoid problems.
