Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
If yesterday's COBOL and FORTRAN programmers could time-warp into the present, they'd be stunned at the power a language like Visual Basic.NET provides, and the relative simplicity with which programmers can access that power. If you've decided to learn VB.NET, you'll be glad you took Beginning Visual Basic.NET along for the ride -- especially if VB.NET is your first true object-oriented language, or your first language -- period.

The book stands out for its wonderfully clear explanations of the basic concepts every contemporary developer needs to understand. Objects. Methods. Properties. Encapsulation. Events. Flow control. Data structures. Arrays. And for its coverage of the .NET concepts every developer working with Microsoft tools needs to understand. Windows Forms and advanced GUIs. Web Forms and web services development. XML Support. Database integration with ADO.NET, including SQL Server programming techniques.

The authors are generous with examples (all downloadable from Wrox's web site). There's a helpful, practical chapter on debugging and error handling. And, if you're so inclined, you can test yourself with the exercise questions at the end of each chapter. But even if you don't, with this book it's a pretty good bet that you'll master the skills you've come for. (Bill Camarda)

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer with nearly 20 years' experience in helping technology companies deploy and market advanced software, computing, and networking products and services. He served for nearly ten years as vice president of a New Jersey┬ľbased marketing company, where he supervised a wide range of graphics and web design projects. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2000 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks For Dummies┬«, Second Edition.

    A Basic Book

    I've developed in VB 4,5,6 using mainly Access DB. I wanted to learn VB.NET and wanted support for Access and maybe SQL Server. So I need an intermediate book that would get me kick started with VB.NET. I found this book too basic and not enough info on DB topics. After purchasing my third VB.Net book I found a good one. If you have the same need as I have, I recommend you get Visual Basic.NET Black Book. It is very well organized with the right depth.

    Great book, but not for the true beginner

    I thought this was a great book. It really helped me to understand the basic changes from VB 6. But, even though the book is aimed at true beginners to programming, it tends to gloss over the core concepts and use of functions, variables, etc... If you have read another beginning VB book, or another beginning programming book, you will be happy with this one. If you are coming from VB 6, but are not a professional programmer (hobbyist), you will love Beginning VB.NET!
