Part 1 is for those folks who haven’t done much with ASP.NET MVC and need to see every concept individually before using them all together. Whether or not you have followed some of the tutorials available at http://www.asp.net/mvc, you will find the chapters in part 1 very easy to follow. But don’t expect part 1 to be only for absolute beginners. We move very quickly from creating your very first ASP.NET MVC project through to exploring all the key concepts in depth.
Before you begin chapter 1, you will want to install ASP.NET MVC 4 and Visual Studio 2010 or 2011.
