    Terrific Text!

    I had the beginning and the intermediate Visual Basic programming courses at Ohlone College in Fremont, Ca. My instructor was so bad in the intermediate course, nearly everyone concluded 'Well at least the textbook is clear!' I have also read Microsoft's 'Step by Step Visual Basic Guide' which was ok but limited.
