Perfect for students and people porting from other languages. With this book you will pick up VB in no time at all. Just sit down with it for a day or two and you will be coding in no time. Much better than all the other books I've ever read.
I can appreciate that this is for a beginner, and I found it quite surprising, being an embedded C programmer,that I am having to answer questions from my daughter about such things.
To give an example, the MessageBox takes a number of parameters, which are not explained, leaving the curious to dig around for an explanation of what all these things do. This without giving even the slightest hint or reference to somewhere within the book, to find this information.
On the plus side, with another book for reference, this book looks to be a good introduction to programming, with little waffle and leads the learner into understanding what the net framework is about.
Apart from the criticism above, I have found this to be quite decent in its approach to teaching the beginner, but it does suffer from the usual approach of missing key information out, by either explaining things fully, or giving references which can be read by the learner to understand what is going on.
its not easy to understand and not very well explained,
i bought this http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0137052766 afterwards and it was an infinitely better book,
easy to understand and not written in cryptic programming english.
so in relation to this book , there's better books out there.
After this you will need to get another book to learn more advanced topics(delegates, WCF etc) but with the firm grounding that this book gives you, that should not be a problem.
Great beginners book, well explained and easy to read/understand. Thanks very much!
