Overview

This book is designed to be used in an introductory course in programming using Microsoft® Visual BASIC 6.0. It presents the material practically, coherently and in depth, making use of extensive step-by-step instructions and model application building. This book is ideal for class use, and self-paced training, in the lab, or at home. Coburn uses a Personal Information Manager (PIM) as a central application that students continually augment and modify throughout the text, starting in Chapter 5. Bringing students in synch with the demands of today's web-dependent workplace, a new Chapter 13 teaches students how to create a web browser.
