If you believe all that hype....

There are many books devoted to Java programming, you name these. And most of them are good enough to teach you how to write in Java. You may consider that it is enough to learn the syntax and some advanced tricks. Wrong! There is more... Read this book, and you will find what it is - THINKING! Just excellent!

I have to agree... This is an excellent starter book

Yes! This book does exactly what it says. Teach you the fundamentals of VB .Net in 21 Chapters (... or Days if u want!)I am a junior/intermediate programmer with only a couple of languages under my belt and this my first "SAMS" book... It is worth every single penny you pay for it...I went thru all of the Chapters but you don't have to as the book is very well organized and can be used as a reference. I'd recommend it to anybody...

Keep looking

I don't understand why people rave about this book. Whenever I try to use it as a reference, I end up even more confused then when I started out. I find that I can usually guess the answer to a problem or else just "do it like they do it in C" rather than trying to find a good example to follow in this book. For example, after reading the section on doing formatted printing statements using "fprintf" I was thoroughly confused. I tried using the function just like C does and it worked, but I would have spent days trying to figure out the syntax from this book's explaination. I don't know of a better book, but I would suggest you keep looking for something else.
