The author's example applications in the later chapters are plagued with bugs, undesirable outputs/behaviors, and some typos. I learned a lot in correcting them, and using google to look up proper methodology - but that's not a very good guide to send me down that path.
I definitely suggest going through all the examples as you read along. As the book progresses, the author inexplicably throws in new and unexplained features. For example - when you get to EX 19-3 he throws in error handling. This was awesome to learn, but there was no explanation of how this was working or mention of error handling previously. And in this same example, other methods are missing error handling. Also, most examples are missing proper error handling without explanation. It makes no sense. Seems like it should be used as an example, or glossed over in the interest of allowing the user to focus on new concepts. Not implemented poorly throughout.
Soon after, when you get to Ex 19-5 - the author's code doesn't work quite right. I modified it to function and it was a great learning tool in that sense. Again, not the road you'd expect for something titled "Made Easy"
I don't see any use or mention of coding conventions - which would have been nice.
You get to arrays early in the book, but it's not until chapters later that it tells you how to initialize arrays as constants, and I never saw variable arrays. I (again) used google on those.
Also be aware that the digital version has some awkward formatting so sometimes new functions look like they are embedded, but they are meant to be their own methods.
Despite its flaws, it gets the point across to the reader and you will learn from it - especially if you're like me and have not touched VB6 in over a decade. To get past some inferences required, some previous programming experience is recommended in using this book.
