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.

I was required to by this book for a VB course im taking at a community college. This book seemed to be enough until I got to chapter 8 (arrays), the book totally lost me and now im planning to buy a couple more books by more popular authors. My biggest concern with this book is how often it contradicts itself and may not always be giving the reader the best way to go about a situation. Whats good about it? Your purchasing the working edition of VB 6.0 on CD-ROM. And there is at least one coding example per chapter and every now and then the book tests what the reader with example questions. I would not recommend this book to others learning VB for Database administration.
This book is excellent for learning or reviewing the basics of VB 6. I was told by a good friend of mine that this book was a great way to learn VB from the ground up and I have to agree that it is terrific.
This book is part of my school curriculum at Heald College here in Honolulu. The format of this book is like none I've ever seen before. All others are useless gargabe in comparison.
This is one of the best book that teach you how to program in VB even if you do not have any background in programing. As for new programers and who wants to learn the most widely used programing language then go for this book. Ofcourse this is microsoft stuff!!
I Bought it and i am happy it helped me making some hard things in visual basic i recomend you to buy it !
It is a very helpful begginners book. If you do not know programming basics, then this bookwill help. If you do, then you can fly right through the first 8 chapters or 300 pages.
I'm using this book for a course I'm taking, it may be a little slow for someone with experience in java or c++, but it would be awesome for a beginner. Try 'Teach Yourself VB in 10 min' if you're comfortable with OO and logic.
