This book is not worth buying or reading for free. I doesn't have complete VBscript content (such as the replace function for strings), and what it does have is very difficult to read and understand. It doesn't do a good job of providing syntax, and that is what we need to quickly look up the usage of a command we already may be aware of. I wish I could return the book, and get my money back.

This is a fun book for all who want to learn VBScript. Advanced users may find it elementary, but for people who are just learning how to build websites and want to take their sites to the next level by using ActiveX and Scripting, this is the book for them. It says 21 days...I completed it in 15, and had never programed before. The only downside is that it covers only VBScript 1.0, (it was written when the beta of IE3.0 was first released) and now Microsoft has released VBScript 2.0. It's easy to take the knowledge from this book then move to Microsoft's documentation to learn the new version. Try this book, I really think you'll enjoy it!!

"Teach Yourself VBScript in 21 Days" is a killer book. I have never programmed with server-side scripting or client-side scripting of any nature. I had taken VB 4 the previous semester at a local community college.

I read this book for an educational institution as core and I never came to class, but I STILL learned VBS just by reading and examples! I highly recommend this book for introductory VB classes as well. Not appropraite for intermediate and advanced VB curricula.

In fact, even hating the C interface, this book gave me enough scripting confidence to learn JavaScript and even attempt to taken server-side Perl! Currently I am working on full-blown Java applets, JavaBeans and ActiveX with VB...All this while absolutely HATING C programming.

Timothy Koets is also currently my VB 5 professor; this booked prompted my undertaking of the class. I encourage other Scripting Professors and other institutions of higher learning to imlement this book in their curricula.

A definite 10 from an experienced HTML programmer!

This book does a decent job of describing stuff. On the other hand, this book does not really describe (in detail) the hands on experience you need and does not bode well with real world programming practices.
