Intro Programming course is estimated currently at 150-200,000 and growing. Visual Basic is taking over where BASIC, Qbasic, and QuickBasic once dominated, in the Introductory Business Programming course. That trend will continue as VB continues to encroach on other less progressive languages such as COBOL and the Basic variations listed above within CIS and Business departments. The courses that can be supported by this text are not specific to any one type of institution, since VB in a Business course is largely a functional topic needed by all types of students from 2-4 year, to Vo-Tech, to extended, to even adult education.

After taking multiple programming classes and trying to learn one or two on my own, I found this book to be excellent. It takes steps that make sense and not just jumpping directly into a bunch of code that becomes intimidating very quickly.
I took a VB advanced course at my college and this book was required so I HAD to buy it. After reviewing the book it had done little or no help for my academics. I would recommend the visual book by David I. Schneider. His book has more explanation and examples. For beginners and intermediates I feel that his book is better.
This is a great book for anyone just starting out. It is designed as a beginning level book for someone with little or no experience in programming.
