C# Book

I am looking for a C# book that would introduce C# by using visual studio 2010 and at the end of each chapter has a complete project coding example. I pretty much only learn by practicing examples. Most of the C# books that I saw only introduce a tiny part of the code and then move on to the next topic. So, lease let me know if you are familiar with any kind of book that meets these criteria.

Thank you,
Paul

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have the top three books and have found them to be very useful, where one book might not quite have the desired content, another usually will have.  The first two (Step by Step and Illustrated) provide a higher level overview of C# whilst the third (Accelerated) is a bit more involved.  I do not personally have experience with the final two, however, I have read books from those publishers before and found them to be a worthy resource.

You could list online resources until they come out of your ears and most, such as Switch on the Code and Code Project provide some good "follow along" tutorials.
