Besides the errors in language, the code is not clear. For example, the section on passing arguments to properties is interesting and not covered elsewhere -- but the code is unclear. Likewise the code for the split method for the string class on pp.295-296 is unclear when simpler examples would have sufficed (as given by Del Sole, for instance).
The book may have its uses as a reference but not on a stand-alone basis. I personally prefer Del Sole's "Visual Basic 2010 Unleashed" and the bible by Troelsen and Agarwal: "Pro VB 2010 and .NET 4 Platform."
This book appears to be targeted at an old version of visual studios with only small parts of the text updated. In one paragraph the the name of a variable will be txtmoviereview latter it changes to txtfilmreview with no explanation. Then there will be a picture example showing code with yet different names. This type of error is frequent.
The book ask you to use menu items that are no longer available in visual studios 2010 like adding an empty project. One Project requires you to download and use code from the authors site but the code you type will not match the references in the code you must download. Steps in project are often incomplete only getting you part of the way to were you should be. Most of the conceptual information is accurate it falls apart if you want to do any of the projects.
If you know another .net and want a challenge of correcting the authors mistakes this book might work for you. However if you are new to programming or even Visual Studios stay away from this book. It will only confuse you.
