Very good book March 10, 2011
by
I bought this unique textbook when I was told about its clear writing style and step by step tutorial approach which is at the right pace for a beginner, never too terse, never too boring. I do think the general organization of the book is very good. This textbook helped me understand the logic behind developing quality programs while introducing the visual basic 2010 language. The chapters are easy to understand and the easy-to-follow tutorials allow you to put into practice what you read which reinforces the learning. This textbook is clear, simple and helpful.
