Unlike most database programming books, which overwhelm readers with large amount of code, this book employs a new, more reader–friendly approach. Now in a new edition updated with the latest tools and information, it lays out to readers, in particular college students, how to develop professional and practical database programs in Visual Basic.NET environment by using Visual Studio.NET Data Tools and Wizards related to ADO.NET 4.0. This new approach allows readers to learn simpler ways of database programming, and enables students to build professional and practical database programming with greater efficiency.
