    This book is tripe

    If you were to replace 'Professional' with 'Beginning' in the title, this book probably would have been worth two or three more stars. It would have also been nice if they didn't have 'VBA' and '.NET' in the subtitle. Do not get this book if you are hoping to find any ream meat about using VBA and/or .NET with excel. Most of the material devoded to '.NET' goes over the basics of VB.NET. There is very little about programming the Excel object model, which is sort of the whole point of using a .NET language with excel. The same is true about VBA; general stuff that does not have much to do with Excel. Yes, this might be useful for beginners, but professionals will likely either know the basics of VBA and/or '.NET', or have more complete references for these technologies. A professional isn't going to buy a book about Excel to learn the basics of VBA. The internet, or a basic book on VBA would be much greater choices. A professional will buy a book about Excel to learn about how to use VBA to automate chart creation and manipulation, automate actions in spreadsheets, etc.

    And by the way, if you buy this book, you will also be spending your hard earned money on a chapter about VB6, which largely repeats what is already gone over in VB.NET and VBA; just one more time in an obsolete version of VB.
