Does anyone know of a good beginners book on C# and Unity that uses Visual C# 2010?

or should I first learn xna before Unity? Edited by Cayliff

If you are new to game design and the C# language in general, then learning XNA is a very good idea. It will teach you alot of fundamental concepts to create a game from scratch in XNA and help you understand what actually goes on behind the scenes in a game engine such as Unity.

If you are not new to programming in general, and you have a basic knowledge of C#, Unity is ridiculously easy to learn. It is nearly all drag and drop. And the only documentation you will need for scripting is http://unity3d.com/s...ence/index.html .

I've not really needed a book to learn unity, there are so many free sources of information available. Their community is incredibly helpful, and as you can see, their documentation is 1 of the best. Edited by dAND3h

You may find this helpful. It's a round-up of all current and in development Unity books, with all details ( page count, rating, table of contents, author, description, etc... ) all on a single page.

It however isn't a recommendation. There aren't too many books on C# specifically with Unity, this one is the only one, and it doesn't come out until next month!

All told though, learning C# separately from Unity is probably a good idea, although learning XNA is probably a waste of time if Unity is your end game.
