Worthless, useless, total rip off,
By A Customer
This review is from: UML for Visual Basic 6.0: Using Visual Modeler and Rational Rose 98 (Paperback)
This is one of the worst software books I've seen in my life. The title should be "An introduction to the most basic ideas of UML and VB for certified idiots". But the authors have the galls to call this a book for developers, and that is downright dishonest: The book is written in large font and wide margins to fill space (the left margin alone is more than 2 inches -about one third of the page). And that's nothing compared to the amount of code: Out of 450 pages, less than 30 pages contain some, and they are ALL in an appendix. Wait!...it gets worse: the code doesn't have *any* of the new VB6 new features, it's all VB5!!! All database access is done via DAO (that's VB4), there is not even a passing reference to ADO. What? are you still reading? don't waste your time with this book, if you are looking for a serious book on VB6 and UML, check out VB6 UML by Jake Sturm, from WROX Press.
