Format: Paperback
I am a Systems and Network Administrator who used Visual Basic 6.0 to automate many of the redundant tasks typical of this environment. I don't claim to be a "developer" but have been developing tools for a long time. I typically do not like WROX books but after sitting down at my local bookstore and plowing through 20 books on VB.NET, this one stood out. It has good examples that you can follow, it assumes you have basic programming/development skills and it is well written. If you are a developer by occupation this is probably not the book for you. For those of us who do not release our code to production environments this book has served me well by not being incredibly basic nor losing me in advanced topics.

This book is geared towards teaching beginning programming skills. It just so happens that the authors chose VB .Net as the language. In the outset they indicate that their intentions are to teach you programming skills, no matter what language you use. This made the book title misleading. I can usually depend on Wrox to produce a pretty good book. If I were a beginning programmer perhaps I would be impressed. If you want to really learn the ins and outs of VB.Net this is definitely not the book for you.

I was trying to find a book that would extend my VB6 capabilities to VB.NET especially that the language has completely changed. After surfing the net in general and Amazon in particular the title of the book attracted me. I said WoW, now its time to learn VB.NET.
Actually going through this book enriched my knowledge a lot, i was not only able to tranfere most of my programs (Civil Engineering) but i extended them a lot.
This book gives a very clear view of classes and i consider this the best part of this book.
I encourage you to buy it although it is not really made for those who are totally new to programming. It requires a little bit of experience, a good understanding of VB6 will help a lot.

Format: Paperback
The book starts out a little slow for those who program in any other IDE but seems to pick up. It's well worded and easy to take in. I do have to go along with the others who posted on the appearance of the second guy on the cover. Looks like a photo you would find off of a book called "Profiles of a serial killer" Just my opinion of course ;)

Format: Paperback
As the title indicates, this book is for beginners. The first 3 chapters assume that you have no programming experience. Many simple examples are followed by only decent explanations.
"pass in parameters by reference using byref. This is an advanced technique, and is beyond the scope of this book."
I never considered "byref" an "advanced technique"; it is an important technique that should have been covered, if only for a few pages.
Chapter 15, "Accessing Databases" and chapter 16, "Database Programming with SQL Server and ADO.NET" were extremely shallow. If you're interested in learning to access a database, you'll need a different book/resource.
Overall, I am Disappointed with the book.

This is the first time I am writing a review on a book. The book is excellent so far (read 5 chapters). The format makes it really easy for an experienced C++/Java programmer like myself to fly through it. I covered first 5 chapters in about an hour and a half (along with a couple of hands-on excercises).
Each section is broken down into 3 parts. A small objective of the section. A code part, with the relevant code highlighted, so that you don't have to search for it and highlight it. And then an explanation of the code. I usually read couple of lines from the first part, go directly to the highlighted code, and sometimes read the code explanation to understand how the syntax/rules are different from C++/Java.

Format: Paperback
This book is the best to learn VB.net. It puts the reader on the track step by step. The authors used a very good methodology in defining VB.net variables. You would feel like they are in front of you. They give all possibilities...
I installed Visual Studio.net two days ago and today I am alraedy on page 72 of the book.
This is not a free advertisement for the book. The truth is that it is the best (at least for me) to learn VB.net.
