    Good Starter Book

    The best thing I can say for this book is that I developed a useable program in parallel with the lessons in the book. Its biggest problem is it is getting dated; some of the code no longer works. The chapter on VB programming with Excel did not work at all because the code in the book does not support Excel 2003, and the author did not seem to want to answer questions about the new changes on his site. Chapter 10 seems to be missing a couple of pages. There were some problems, but overall I learned a lot and would still recommend the book for anyone wanting to be introduced to VB .NET

    A great Visual Basic.net book for beginners

    There are a few things that he fails to mention, which might confuse people who have never used vb.net before, however he explains things very simply and in a few pages you learn a whole lot. He makes methods, objects and properties so simple to understand, you wonder why anyone ever has problems with these concepts and why other books don¿t explain it in the same way. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn vb.net.
