A really excellent book going into simplified depth in everything for Visual Basic except (unfortunately) text printing.

The only serious flaw is that the book is EXACTLY the same as Sam's Teach Yourself Visual Basic 2010 in 24 Hours, which I already possess. How can an author and publisher get away with this?

Fortunately I have a relative who is undergoing an IT College Course who is finding the book invaluable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as previous editions 29 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have a few of these books going back to VB6 and have always found them useful. However, this one seems to floundered. It lacks the code examples which features in other publications and left me more confused than when I first started reading. The VB2010 book is a better read.
