- Great Book, Easy to understand
I threw out 4 or 5 other books before I bought this one. It is very well presented as a basic reference. FYI I am certified in VB6 and have been to a 40 hour vb.net class and still found this to be a very good book. The samples work and they give you a wide variety of code. I see there is another book by Sams with the exact title as this ??? Wasup with that?
- Down-to-Earth, good for reference
I found this book to be a superbly written manual for learning Visual Basic and as a reference. The language is very clear and easy to understand. Chapters are well structured, making it easy to skip and search through the book if you forget something. Most important, this book is quite comprehensive and has writing on nearly everything you will encounter in the Visual Basic syntax.
Novice programmers may find this book too straightforward and boring to read. If you can be easily confused with programming, or prefer to learn at a more humorous and relaxing environment, then I recommend one of the "Visual Basic for Dummies" books. If you already have some experience writing software and are interested in getting to the hardcore Visual Basic right away, then "Sam's Teach Yourself Visual Basic .NET 2003" is an excellent choice.
- Great Book!!!!
I bought some books of .NET, including this one, and for many things this is the best one. This is a book to programming from 0. It includes referenceses, sintaxis, good examples, etc. Really I recommend it.
