(Also one thing to note, this is a student textbook.)
For example not knowing the 5 main events or the notation of functions will confuse you in the long run. I thought the material is there and if the course was strictly by the book it would be more helpful. I question if the authors got to creative and wrote how they understand VB. To their credit if you did finish the book you would probably have all the basics. But the fact remains that I believe the topics are not in proper order. This review was a reflection on how efficiently I learned and how I struggled relying on this text. Not a terrible book, but not the best.
This one is an exceptional textbook for any beginner (or otherwise) wanting to learn the Object Oriented language of Visual Basic. The exercises are easy to learn and follow. The information is presented in an interesting manner and there are many really good hands on programming tasks. I recommend it very highly!
But as for the book itself.. its definitely got a learning curve just in regards to actually understanding how the authors word things. Once you get a hang of how they write, and can understand their wordings better, you'll definitely get alot of information from this book. Helped me so many times during class to figure things out. Hell, it even had things that my PROFESSOR didn't even know about!
So all in all, its a good book... but look forward to strictly having it on your PC/Mac.
