When trying to learn MS Visual Basic, I found the Windows Help screens to be overwhelming, starting from a point of view that assumes you already know everything. This book does what its title says; it takes you step by step so you <won't> get overwhelmed!

Good book for absolute introduction to Visual Basic 2008. Gets a little repetitive.

Halverson has put together a useful text for those that know little of nothing about computer programming but want to learn the basics. The organization of the book is applicable for either classroom or learn-on-your-own scenarios. The book starts off with an introduction to the Visual Basic (VB) environment. This is quite useful for the novice. The next three chapters take the reader through the basic concepts of VB. Chapters 5 through 13 lead the reader through math operations, conditional expressions, loops to arrays and text processing. It covers enough of the programming statements that learning the remainder of the syntax should be relatively straight forward for a beginning programmer. The order of the subject material makes learning easy and understandable. Part III of the text explores the user interface. How to use graphics is covered in but one chapter. Halverson appears to have shorted this very important topic. The last part of the book gives the reader an overview of ADO, data controls and web development. The last three chapters should have been more in depth but this is an introductory text.

The book is OK, but the CD could have had more detailed examples.
