This book, is great for even the most inexperianced programmers. Even with my background of other "basic" programming languages, this book put my knowledge over the top. My group, ordered this book, for an upcomming contest, and from the information, we will have the advantedge. I reccomend this book to beginers and experts alike. This one is a must!

I bought this book a little after it came out, and as I was reasding it I had the urge to program a text based RPG. I made the RPG in under 6 days. I got on the internet and sold the RPG and made a lot of money. It is so intouch. It gets straight to the point. Thanks Namir Clement Shammas. You gave me mt 15 min. of fame.

Well, it's 2016 and I am finally getting around to learning BASIC at 50 years old. I should have done it 30 years ago. Batch files and Bash scripting are not getting it done for me any more. I ordered this book to learn how to use FreeBasic. A simple language that is portable between Linux, FreeDos, and the very occasional Windows machine is perfect for me.

I have mixed feelings about this book. As of this writing, I am half way through this book. I am rapidly becoming acquainted with the various commands. That is probably the main intent. In this respect it has been worth the time. However, the author should have spent more time proofreading his work. I am learning correct coding by correcting his many typos. It is quite frustrating.

I also agree with the review which stated this book written in an illogical order.

I am not saying that this book is useless. It is working for me, but I'm glad I bought it at salvage pricing. I would have been furious if I had paid the price listed on the back cover.

I recently bought this book, and it is a big help! I would recommend this to an intermediate programmer, although it could be suitable for some beginners. It deals with the basics, strings, variables, data, graphics, and sound. If you're a QBasic programmer, you should probably buy it.
