4.0 out of 5 stars You need to know the target audience July 1 2006
By Xu Shaowu - Published on Amazon.com
I believe this book is targeted at new programmers or programmers who have no experience with VB language. I have read the previous edition cover to cover. I have to say this book does a good job of bringing your (VB) programming skills to a level that is just below commercial level. That is to say, despite the sheer volume, it does not teach you everything about VB.NET, many major advanced concepts are glossed over. For example, what is exactly the difference between a module and a class?(not explained clearly) Why are why namespace names seems to be hierachial?(glossed over) What's a inner class(Not included)? Why do we need structures? Why can't we just use classes for everything(Not included)?

What I'm saying is, despite this being a very good book to bring you to an intermediate level, it's not an advanced VB book. I still recommend this book if you have no VB.Net experience and the "Visual Basic. Net 2005, the language" seems to complement this book well, as that book incudes advanced topics.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Very Best Visual Basic Book ........Period! June 17 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Just when I thought their second edition was the best, the Deitels have certainly outdone themselves once again. This book flat rocks. This book contains so much useful information it is unbelievable.

They have also improved the font as some have complained in the past in regards to this (which shows the Deitels listen to their customers)

Great job once again. One reviewer had it right.

4.0 out of 5 stars an excellent read Jan. 3 2007
By Clive Jones - Published on Amazon.com
The book is very well set out and easy to follow. I cannot fault the way in which each subject is approached and explained. The questions and answers are a useful test to find out if you have understood the chapter.

If I were to say anything against the book it would concern the test examples at the end of each chapter. I know that the book is for teachers and their students so I understand that answers aren't given. It would, however, be nice to have a couple of questions with answers for those of us who are using the book on their own to learn Visual Basic.

I whole heartedly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to learn Visual Basic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Book For Beginners Aug. 8 2007
By Nurhayati A. Ghani - Published on Amazon.com
I have been used this book for my teachings to my students. It is a very good book to teach them the concept of procedural and object-oriented programming. The book is well-organized and impressively, my students understood the OOP very well. TQ.
4.0 out of 5 stars VB 2005 July 12 2008

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used this text in combination with Simply Visual Basic for my class. This book has more information, but less fun than SVB. Generally I found this text able to accomplish it's goal in introducing student to VB.

Some negative things: I think it somewhat redundant to start every Deitel book with descriptions and overview od input, output, CPU etc. Usually, people who take this class already know these things. Another thing, is Deitel's font selection and organization. It is truly would benefit to rethink it. I can't say what exactly not appealing, but it takes time to get used to their font designations and tips, often in the middle of the text. (tips are better always on the sides). And, yes those bug pictures can get annoying. Sometimes it looks like page is somewhat broken because of those tips, and look disorganized. But this is general comment on the series.
