Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Great Programming Book for new programmers and VB students

I had to buy a copy...for my Visual Basic I online class in college. It's an online class so all the work is done on your own and this book is awesome.
The book takes you step-by-step from designing, planning, and coding VB programs. It walks you through every stage of creating a program. Textbook is very detailed and accurate.
There are tons of follow up questions at the end of each tutorial and there are plenty of programming exercises at the end of each tutorial as well.
I plan on buying Intro to C++ by Diane Zak to study on my own and any other books she writes that I might be interested in as well. I would recommend any books by Diane Zak. I strongly recommend any of her titles.

Technology Fundamentals

The book is difficult to read. Style and composition are poor.The author overuses formulas while lacking clear formulations.Don't recommend it for beginers and intermediates. While if you are in advanced category you may not need this book at all. Just to give you a reference point - I earned my PhD in physiscs/math. General conclusion: waste of trees, time and money. My sorry to the author for a bad review.

Title: Programming .NET Components
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Juval Lowy
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Clear, deep, helpful, excellent

Excellent book with terrific coverage of the most important aspects of developing reusable components in .NET with both C# and VB.NET. Overall, one of the best .NET books I have read, and I've read a great number of them.
I give it 4 stars because I wish some of the chapters went deeper. In particular, I felt the sidebar on LCE in the Events chapters was insufficient -- I've also read Lowy's "COM and .NET Component Services" book from O'Reilly, and between the two, I still don't feel that LCE and asynchronous events are covered sufficiently. I also wish that the context-bound object topic in the book expanded more on the subject, as most of the same material was presented in Lowy's MSDN article from Mar 03.
