You′ll learn to do a variety of tasks, such as copy and move files, create folders and files, modify the Windows operating system, and more. Plus, the comprehensive appendixes are valuable references for you to gain greater insight into how VBScript works so that you can start using it right away to save both time and money.

Format: Paperback
This book is well written and seems to contain everything you may need to know about VBScripting. Unfortunately the index is poor and subjects I would have expected to locate easily often dont appear in the index though they are usually somewhere in the book, just take a long time to locate. Would have been 4 or 5 stars but for this.

As a non-programer, I found this book an excellent introduction. It assumes no experience and clearly and concisely takes you through each step.

VBScript Programmer's Reference has helped me along the way as I've gone from an absolute beginner with VBScript based active server pages to reasonably accomplished.
To be fair, my usage has only concentrated on the first few chapters (basic language concepts) and some of the appendices (reference materials) but these have many times provided the answers I've needed for creating dynamic web pages.
When I was looking for a reference on VBScript, I wasn't spoilt for choice (the VBScript section was tiny compared to the burgeoning JavaScript shelves) but I think that even if the positioning of these two scripting languages were reversed, this book would still stand out above many others.
All in all, another very good reference manual from Wrox... I look forward to experimenting with the contents of a few more chapters over the coming months.

I've had this book for about 6 months now and I've lost count of the times I've wasted minutes trying in vain to find information, which I know is in there...
The index of the book is the culprit, basic things..ASP, string.. for example aren't indexed so trying to look up information becomes a real effort (although I'm convinced it's all there somewhere.
The previous reviewer sings the books praises and I can only think that this is due to reading it cover to cover, a book with reference in the title should be that... this isn't and I'd advise readers requiring a reference to look elsewhere
