Visual Basic .NET How to Program

Visual Basic .NET How to Program

Author: Deitel & Deitel
Publisher: Prentice Hall

Review

This book provides exhaustive coverage of everything you need to know in order to master the latest .NET version of Visual Basic. The book is designed for readers of all levels from experienced programmers to those with little or no programming experience. It does so by providing beginners with basic underlying good programming skills, while at the same time offering experinced developers detailed and exhaustive coverage of the Visual Basic .NET language.

By simply flipping through the pages of this book, it becomes evident that an enormous amount of time and effort went into it. It offers the same high quality and detailed coverage that you would find in most college level academic books. The book's 1500 plus pages include over 2100 lines of carefully commented code, hundreds of programs with screens shots, and over 400 programming tips. All of the code is presented in full color as it would appear on a color monitor. Each chapter provides extensive self-review exercises which are designed to build confidence with the new material.

More experienced Visual Basic developers can use the book to quickly master the new powerful features of .NET, such as, Web Services and ASP.NET, Web Forms, Object-Oriented Programming, XML, Multithreading, and ADO.NET.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to master this latest version of Visual Basic. You may read other reviews for this book at Amazon.com, they are all excellent.
