    Very helpful for Beginners...Explores and Answers you Curiosity

    I got hold of the Black book from a friend of mine and this type of book is hard to find in our country and if you found it, it is very expensive here. But everything pays off... For beginners this book enhances and answers you further curoisity on the ins & outs of the Visual Basic Program. I highly recommend this book.

    Excellent book for beginner to intermediate VB Programmers

    I have bought over a dozen Visual Basic books over the past three years including the complete Microsoft reference, and none of them compare to this book. The Visual Basic 6 Black Book provides a detailed reference for most of the popular controls used in VB apps as well as extensive language references. I highly reccomend this book to anyone who is serious about developing Visual Basic Applications.

    Book to keep by your monitor!!

    I bought the book. Couldnt seem to put it down once I got it. If you ever wanted to put together pieces of a puzzle by examples this is the book to read. Reminds me of the old days when I could get code from a magazine and put it to work right away. How about a part II??!!

    Very Helpful

    I read alot of books and never really get this satisfied. Usually programming books bore you with head wrenching terms and boring history about the language. This book jumps in with good examples and then elaborates into the topics that are helpful to know. Reading the first chapter alone taught me more than I ever expected a book to teach. Caution: This book assumes you understand the basic concepts of a programming language. You should read something like programming for dummies or a programming concepts book before you jump into this book. If you are going from VBScript to VB then you have no worries. If you understand any kind of programming language, then you will have no problems as well.

    Truely Indespensable

    I have tried many different VB books and this is the only one I use continuously. The topics are well organized, and the code snippets are to the point. It is especially usefull for experienced programmers, migrating to VB, who know what they want to do but not how to do it in VB. The MSDN library has a wealth of information, but you need a book like this one to know what to look up. Since showing this book to the other VB developers on my team, many of them have purchased thier own copies.
