Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
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.
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.
"The deitels are deities"
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.
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.
