5.0 out of 5 stars Vital Foundation
I have just entered the world of .net and object orientated programming. Many books I have started looking at do not properly explain object orientated fundamentals, and seem to assume you understand them.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Book
I found the book is useful as a point of reference only. It is not an easy read. But the information is in there somewhere if you can find it.

This book carefully & comprehensively explains all aspects, and has tons of examples. All examples are written as console apps - this works very effectively since it removes the distractions of the IDE and focuses on core & essential object orientated concepts.

2.0 out of 5 stars Book for newbies, 5 Mar. 2004
The language used is clear and simple but so is the ability of the reader that this book is aimed at.
If you've programmed before then choose a more technical book. This covers the syntax and structure of the language but the examples given are too abstract to be really informative and the best thing about vb.net (its Object Orientated capabilities) are just not covered in enough depth.
Theres also no coverage of database access and as most vb apps Ive seen and written have a database somewhere behind them thats a very important omission.
A good book on .net and a decent book on OOP and the help in VS.net will take you alot further than this book. Disapointing from O'Riley.
