Review: Beginning VB 2008

This book is about explaining the Visual Basic programming language in the context of solving problems. Visual Basic has become a sophisticated programming language that can achieve many goals, but you are left wondering what techniques to use when. This book is here to answer your questions.

This book is not a reference to all of the features of the Visual Basic programming language. I don’t explain the esoteric Visual Basic features. I stick to the Visual Basic programming features that you will use day in and day out.
If you are a beginning programmer who has no clue about Visual Basic, and you read this book and do the exercises, you will be a solid and knowledgeable Visual Basic programmer by the end of the book. If that sounds like a big promise, well, yes it is. The chapter text is intended to get you acquainted with the Visual Basic programming language and how to apply its features. The exercises are intended to make sure you actually understand the Visual Basic programming language and its features.
