Visual Basic 6 from the Ground Up

Visual Basic 6 from the Ground Up

Author: Gary Cornell
Publisher: Osborne Mcgraw Hill

Review

I wish this book had come to my attention much sooner so that I could have reviewed it on my web site. I did have high hopes before reading this book because I purchased "Core Visual Basic 5" by Gary Cornell and absolutely loved it. Gary Cornell is an award winning author. He won the Visual Basic Programmer's Journal Reader's Choice Award in 1996.

This huge 900 page book which is geared towards the beginner to intermediate, covers everything you need to know to program in Visual Basic 6. You will learn with the help of tons of sample code, object oriented programming, database programming, how to create sophisticated event-driven programs, VBScript, graphics programming, ActiveX, and much more.

Gary Cornell is a professional programmer and a professor at the University of Connecticut. His teaching experience becomes very apparent when you read this book. All the material is presented in a very clear and effective manner which makes it easy for the reader to quickly absorb it. You can check out other reviews for this book at Amazon.com. They are all excellent..
