Title: Microsoft Visual Basic .NET Step by Step--Version 2003 (Step By Step (Microsoft))
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: Michael Halvorson
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Beginners Only


If you are an experienced developer, particularly with VB, this is NOT the book to buy. I recommend Cornell and Morrison's Programming VB.Net: A Guide for Experienced Developers. However, if you are new to programming, I highly recommend this book. It presents basic subject matter in a clear and readable style. Additionally, the author steps the reader "step-by-step" through how to perform basic programming tasks in the VB .Net environment. I have taught hundreds of students how to develop in Visual Basic, and although this is not the BEST book out there, my students have really enjoyed and benefited greatly from this material.

Excellent book


I really like Deke McClelland's books. He's a great writer and makes his subject very understandable and approachable. If you're looking for a book to help you get started or move from beginner to intermediate user, I think it's very unlikely you'll find a better book...

Great book on managed DirectX---- For a change


This book is great for those who enjoy learning by experimenting. The author explains a little about the API, does what any novice would try to do, then explains what causes it to not work smoothly (and how to fix it). This fosters a deep understanding not only of the API, but also of how it interacts with both Windows and hardware. This book assumes you have studied a little trignometry, but no more. I would highly recommend this to any developer who wants a painless introduction to the world of multi-media programming.
