5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, really well writen, 11 Jun 2006
This review is from: Programming Microsoft® Visual Basic® 2005: The Language (Pro Developer) (Paperback)
Very happy with this purchase, I bought it to replace the Wrox Professional VB2005, which quite frankly is terrible. F Balena's explanations are very concise and easy to follow, and he points out best patterns and practices where appropriate. Also its refreshing to have a book where you are given genuinely useful code examples to demonstrate his point rather that contrived situations that youre never going to use. I should point out though that this is definitely not a book for complete beginners, although he does cover the basic language concepts etc, its very much a whistle-stop tour, and is mostly done to point out the differences from previous versions or the syntax for those who know another language.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best VB book I own, 20 Jan 2009

This review is from: Programming Microsoft® Visual Basic® 2005: The Language (Pro Developer) (Paperback)
This is a brilliant book on VB. If you only ever buy 1 VB book, get this one. It is the only VB book I have that I return to time and again. It covers VB and using Visual Studio exhaustively, and provides good general programming guidlines and useful code samples. My copy is falling apart from continual use.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect choise, 25 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Programming Microsoft® Visual Basic® 2005: The Language (Pro Developer) (Paperback)
As usual Balena's books are very informative. This book cover all new material concerning Visual basic 2005 compared with the previous edition (2003).
The examples are not functional i.e. lengthy. In the contrary are very short, just few lines. I strongly prefer short examples because they help me understand the core of the technical issue presented. So reading this book you will acquire a solid knowledge of the language plus hundreds of code snippets to use.
I fully recommend Balena's books.
