Microsoft Visual Basic 6 Professional (step by step)

Microsoft Visual Basic 6 Professional (step by step)

Author: Michael Halvorson
Publisher: Microsoft Press


 I found this to be an excellent book for beginners to visual basic. As the title states, this book takes you "step by step" through all aspects of Visual Basic 6.0. It assumes no prior programming experience with Visual Basic. The book starts off slowly by showing the reader how to create their first simple Visual Basic program. This will help you to quickly become familiar with the Visual Basic environment. The book is well organized and divided into various parts, such as, creating the user interface, database programming, internet programming, etc. All parts are listed below in the table of contents. Each of these parts is clearly presented with sample code and screen shots. I highly recommend this book to any beginner to Visual Basic. Check out other reviews at Amazon.com. They are all excellent..
