5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but a little bit expensive, May 5, 2005
This review is from: Murach's Beginning Visual Basic .NET (Paperback)
I was in several Oracle's training classes. In most classes, each takes approximately from two to five days. If you were in the class, you would get a handout book printing from Instructor's PowerPoint slide. The handout, in bullet format, covers only the closed-to-a-real application examples. It is concise. Instructor covers the slide for 30 mins. Then, he gave you many lab exercises to follow. With this method, I think you can understand the context in the short time. This book is using the same method. By pursuing this book, you do not need the real instructor. All instructor suggestions are already in the book.

At the end of each chapter, you will have a chance to modify the project that you already did in the chapter. For example, if the author shows you how to write IF statements, you will have a chance to enhance those statements to be more complex. You are also able to do extra projects that the author has not taught in the text. As a result, you can apply those skills to develop your own projects.

Another good thing about this book is that the screen captures are very clear. You can see what the points of the author. In many books, they fail to do so because readers cannot read words on those screens.

Before you decide to buy Object-Oriented Text Book, I suggest that you check the example that the book explains to you. You should buy the book that shows you examples like real world examples such as Invoice Class, or DataValidation Class. You should not buy the book that presents only Mammal class, Engine Class, or Dog Class.

However, for the price, it seems to me that this book is a little pricy. You can buy a similar book with 1,000+ pages more for 50 dollars. You may need to trade off between the price and the presentation method of the book.
