The book is divided into 4 parts:
- Redefining your data access strategy
- Working with Entity Framework
- Mastering Entity Framework
- Applied Entity Framework.
But this is not a small book, this is more of a 'complete reference'. And the chapters in a way depend on scenarios or examples covered in previous ones. So if you pick up the book and start from the middle you may not find it easy to comprehend. The book comes with a sample app that the authors walk you through the book. Be aware that you may run into compilation issues at times and will have to debug through to add appropriate references to make the code run. This will not be a problem if you follow the book from page 1 instead of picking it up in the middle. I strongly recommend this book.
Also worth mentioning is that this book is much better than the asp.net book by the same authors and Manning.
