I bought SAMS teach yourself and that just didn't cut it for me. I know the basics of programming and all the constructs etc. havin learnt them in VB5. This gives a great intro not just into VB2010 but also .NET in general. I would say though that this is only the right book if you want enough complexity to be able to make 'projects' - by that I mean if you only want to code simple calculators than there are other books that will cut to the chase quicker but this one will really teach you EVERYTHING in VB2010 that you need to make a program for distribution.

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 find this book typical with a lot of these beginners books. That is they spoon feed the learner in such a way, that they miss important parts out, and expect the learner to take something on blind faith, without teaching what things mean.
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.

I can't say how pleased I am with this book! It is a great start into vb 2010 programming. It starts of with the basics and covers them all well. It even goes into WPF(which is a new technology but, I think, is going to be huge). It will give you a great grounding into the basics and explain them in very plain English (something which I have found profoundly lacking in previous Wrox books).

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!

i bought this as a first year mature student, my advice, don't bother.
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.
