Ever since we published the first edition of our Visual Basic .NET book back in 2002, we've been getting comments like these:

"I have a huge library of computer books. Yours are THE best! Your Visual Basic book is so good, I opened it and did the whole application from scratch (even though I'd never tried VB before)."

"I can't praise this book highly enough. The clarity Anne uses in picking what to include, when to introduce it, and how to do so is remarkable."

"I recently picked up your Visual Basic book. A stellar example of how to impart knowledge. Truly a publication well worth the price."

"Had I bought your VB book first, I would have saved myself lots of dollars and several months time."

Now, Anne Boehm continues this tradition of quality and usefulness in the latest edition of our VB text, written for Visual Basic 2010.

So if you're new to VB development...or if you're upgrading to VB 2010 and are looking for an up-to-date'll find that this book is packed with the information you need, delivered in a way that's made earlier editions such favorites among professional developers:

  • It's concise, practical, and crystal-clear in telling you what you need to know.
  • It shows you how to get the most from Visual Studio 2010 as you design, code, debug, and deploy Windows Forms applications using VB 2010.
  • It gives you solid training in the essential skills that you'll use every day, including data validation...handling numeric, date, and string data…working with arrays and collections...handling exceptions...working with text, binary, and XML files...and understanding how OOP works.
  • It gives you a 4-chapter section on database programming...far more than you'll find in any other VB book, even though database handling is essential in business applications.
  • It introduces you to LINQ, the .NET feature that lets you use VB to query almost any data source, from databases to arrays to XML files.
  • It shows you how to build real-world applications so you always see how the features you're learning interact with each other.
  • It gives you chapter exercises that let you practice what you're learning and apply your skills in new ways.

In short, if you're going to be working with Visual Basic 2010, take the advice of your fellow developers: Save yourself some time and money by making this book your first choice for VB 2010 education and reference.
