I have not programmed since C+ in Visual Studio 6.0 back in College.

This book has gotten me up to speed in no time. I read the first 300 pages in PDF then had to buy the book because there was just so much to do read then do and flipping back and fourth in the computer was becoming a pain, even with a 24inch monitor. Since then I have only done 1 chapter, due to my slacking and building a new machine to run the project I will be making.

But this is a No Frills Book - Not diagrams, few charts, mostly words and examples that you can download off the net if needed. Another nice point is the Added chapters you can download for free from the website, along with the course projects. This book goes into more Depth then other books I was reading, I was looking at one .net 2010 book and by the end of that book you were on to chapter 2 in this book. Just the amount of information and the logical progression is Superb.

This is not for your 24hr specials - this is a 3-4 Month reading and doing book. Pending on how versed you are in programming as a whole and how well you know .net framework. I knew Nothing about .net and this is a new adventure; but this book is a perfect guide.

I bought this book without hesitation because I have his book of the same kind for VB.NET 2005. Brilliant guy, the 2005 book covered how to do many standard AND advanced things the best, modern way. This is a book for experienced programmers so I got it in addition to my recent purchase of a regular book on VB.NET 2010 that covers the fundamentals. He really knows how to target (i.e. topics, presentation and code examples) the experienced programmer who has to do some of it all. I still find his 2005 book useful even though I am using VS2010 ! This new book will give me big advantages.

The book seems to be well written and the information I've found has been great. The problem is that I purchased the Kindle edition, and there is no Table of Contents or Index. I have more than 1000 pages that I can flip through, but there is no way to find information about a specific topic. I feel like I have a great reference book that I cannot refer to since there is no over-arching organization available. Don't buy the Kindle version unless you enjoy flipping through endless pages of technical material trying to find that one line of information you need.

Excellent coverage of .net. It was nice that the author's first 3 chapters are aimed at those with no .net experience; he states you can skip ahead if you are already familiar.

Part 2 (Chapters 4-7) covers development, Part3 (8-10) custom classes and controls, Part4 (11-14) covers the .net framework, Parts 5 & 6 (15-21) data-driven programming and web.

Good coverage of LINQ also.

I am still working through the book but have learned a lot on the past month. would recommend based on current experience.

I enjoyed reading this book (still haven't finished it). Its language style is clear, logical and easy to understand. As most books in the Mastering series, it is also exhaustive in it's handling of the topic. Having read the book Mastering Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 - or at least most of it - one would be well on the way to being a confident VB 2010 programmer. After this, the book would serve as an excellent reference for your bookshelf. I recommend this book to both beginner and accomplished VB hobby and professional programmers.

GREAT book so far. I have never felt compelled to write a review, but I have only completed 3 chapters (14-16 as an overview for my needs) and can honestly say I have never read a more complete and straightforward explanation/demonstration of data techniques in .Net. The language is simple and the coverage is thorough. I thought I would skim the book, but will now go cover to cover -- something I don't often do with tech books. I can't say enough about this one. A must read on the topic.

This is by far the best book I have ever opened written for any programming language. The author goes over everything from the basics to advance database coding. If you want to learn Visual Basic buy this book first.
