From the Back Cover

Combining the Visual Basic language with a complete introduction to programming fundamentals

This book presents concepts of programming methodology and sound software development alongside the fundamentals of the Visual Basic 6.0 language. The goal is to provide a foundation of solid programming techniques and to promote an understanding of the common control structures available in most high-level languages. The book discusses the language with gradually increasing complexity, presenting the essential features of Visual Basic before introducing advanced language features. This is an appropriate book for introductory courses in computer programming as well as a reference for advanced programmers.

Features:
  • Provides a solid foundation in computer programming fundamentals using the Visual Basic language
  • Contains well thought-out pedagogy, including:
    -Code Callouts to explain important points and key concepts in program source code
    -GUI Design Tips to enhance understanding of proper GUI design
    -Real-world examples from the business, math, science, engineering, and operations research communities to demonstrate the relevance of the material
    -Case Studies to provide insight on how the concepts apply to real-world situations
    -Chapter Summaries to review key terms, words, and concepts, along with Review Questions and Chapter Problems to increase reader understanding of the material
    -Programming Projects to allow readers to combine material from previous chapters with the most recent concepts
    -Chapter Supplements to include more advanced material on computer science and extra features of Visual Basic
  • Includes a CD containing the Visual Basic 6.0 Working Model (a student version of Visual Basic), as well as program files from the book

44 of 44 people found the following review helpful By Jerry Saperstein HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on February 10, 2000
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an unusual book. Clearly intended as a teaching aid, its approach is substantially different than most of the other well done VB books. The authors take a very methodical, step-by-step approach to VB and presume that you are a newcomer. But what they've actually done is to create one of the finest references for BASIC, Visual Basic and programming languages in general. Each element of VB is described in detail with excellent examples. From the IDE to building ActiveX controls. Unlike some VB books, this one doesn't intend to turn the neophyte into an "expert," but rather provides the core knowledge that every programmer should possess. I enjoyed it so much that I'm adding it to my VB collection, despite having a number of other volumes already. This one is just plan handy as a quick reference when I forget - as I suspect we all do from time to time - the basics of BASIC.

Format: Paperback
If you already know Visual Basic then you might find this book useful. If you are just learning then it is not the book for you. Most other VB books do a lot more explaining about the fundamentals than this one does. Some concepts are just presented with almost no explaination where other books I've read take about half of a chapter to this. I think the authors forgot that the simple things are not simple if you don't know them yet.

Format: Paperback
This book was so bad our professor dropped it mid-semester and used power point slides instead. It fails the most in its lack of examples. Some VB functions were completely left out. Example - How to create a Control Array. It is a total waste of money.
