I've been working on the Bee hive 2.0 exercise that starts on page 263 and I've been trying to complete the exercise using the requirements outlined in the explanation rather than jumping to the code but I am finding it very difficult to do so.
In the time I've been reading this book I find this to be a recurring pattern because somehow the information for each exercise seems to be so vague. In order to figure out what needs to be done, I always find myself jumping to the code in order to complete the exercise which is rather frustrating because it's difficult for me to gauge if I'm not understanding the material or if the reason I'm having problems is because of missing details.
I was very keen on this book when I found it because out of all the books I have on C#, none of them have actual projects to work on where a spec so to speak is provided and I thought this book would help put the pieces of the puzzle together but that doesn't seem to be the case. In essence I'm curious to know if it's just me or if anyone else is having the same experience with this book as me?
