This sets a new low for Microsoft. The cover says Visual Basic 6, the contents, code sample, and screen shots are from Visual Basic 5.
If you're looking for examples and explanations on VB 6 subjects like ActiveX DLLs and such, this is NOT what you want. It is very sad to Microsoft doing things like this. As a professional developer, it is very frustrating when the vendor's own documentation is wrong. I am not talking about typo's, this is outright deception.

I'm a VB programmer who finds Microsoft Press books in general to be great introductory books to Microsoft's technology, and this set is no different. It's very informative, covers all the basics any novice would want to know -- but also covers advanced features that many programmers who consider themselves experts would benefit from. I relied heavily on the VB 5.0 set of these books to learn structured-style VB, and I'm relying on the VB 6.0 set now to learn object-oriented, component-based development.

This book is utterly useless. It is merely a printout of the on-line help, which is also nearly useless. The information is terse and command descriptions are obtuse, at best. Does MS think there is going to be a word shortage in the coming years?

This set is a good for those of us that still prefer to use printed manuals to find information, rather than drilling down and getting lost in a sea of hyperlinks from an MSDN CD. Everything that I've needed has been in the set. As far as knocking Microsoft for not including the printed manuals with the software: It's not greed. It's smart business sense. Not including the printed manuals with the software keeps the costs down. If they did include the printed versions, the price would jump up and you'd probably complain that the software box weighs too much!

As a contract programmer that has used VB since 2.0, I recommend this set, along with the "Programmer's Guide" for any serious programmer, from rookie to pro. I particularly like the "Component Tools Guide." I used it to teach myself ActiveX control development fundamentals.
From here go to the specialized third party books, like Appleman's "Developing ActiveX Components With..." whatever applies if you need a software engineering level understanding of the technology.
I keep this three volume set and the Programmer's Guide in my car's trunk at all times.
