Download books for free. I am a very VB 6 programmer and this was my first book on VB. I have found the book extremely helpful as it is written in such a way that it completely fits the visual basic concept of abstraction. All unnecessary details are omitted with only relevant and most useful information summarized in each lesson. This is one of my favourite books as it provides guidelines for use of almost all important concepts for VB product development.

This was a replacement copy (Someone must have liked my previous copy as much as I). Great learning tool. See my review of their newer text on VB.NET.

This book presents some beginning basics for VB but in my view is a good second step after an elementary book such as SAMS. The authors treat some very important techniques that are constantly used but rarely developed elswhere. A good example is string parsing. The authors teach the major functions (InStr, Replace, Mid) with some examples. Unfortunately, little information is given about strategies to use in handling complex parsing. As is the case with most of these books, there are few meaningful projects or larger contexts to put this information in. Perhaps if a tool were developed (such as a database application or a text editor or spreadsheet) in the course of the book, the new developer could get an idea of the complexity and number of forms, modules, and code required to achieve a useful product. As noted by others, the coverage is broad (with some notable gaps) but is lean in most cases. Take the discussion of the tree view control for example. There is little development here. The reader should consult the MSDN for details on the use and properties of various controls. Even then, the code snippets there are often no more than a syntax example. Nevertheless, I recommend this book at the intermediate level and as one of the few that reasonably clarifies SQL, database structure, file structures and a host of other topics for the budding developer or hobbiest. Use this as a jumping off point to attack more specialized treatises like Appleman's API book.

I have used this book as an additional reference for the class that I took on Programing VB, as the original class book was very badly written. This book really starts from the beginning of what we need to know about the vb programing environment to some new aspects of programing used in VB. The book starts with smaller examples of how we can create a calculator, etc. There are many more as such examples in the book (more complex ones of course as we proceed to further chapters). Also each concept of the programing is clearly defined and explained. THere are really many concepts covered such as database programing, General common Pogram components such as Microsoft common controls, ActiveX Controls, Classes, Also there are some more intermediate advance topics such as accesing win. API, Using OLE, then there are also chapters covered on VB in the internet... I have found VB a very easy to use programing langauge after reading this book. It is very easy to read, with many visual representations which makes it much easier to understand.
The index of the book is quite good, as we actually can find what we are looking for. It doesn't have very many advanced topics but I would recommend it for every beginner and intermediate user. I think it would be of great help.

I am a longtime C++ programmer, and have recently decided to take the plunge and learn VB. This book was extremely helpful and I learned much in a short time. You're creating your first program in no time. The book seems to work well for beginners as well as advanced programmers. Intelligent explanations are mixed in with the examples for a well-rounded learning experience.
The publisher has fixed the problems with the code examples on the web, too.
I heartily recommend this book for beginners as well as programmers experienced in other languages.

Special Edition Using VB6 is the best all-purpose VB book I have seen since the VB3 days. It covers a wide array of VB programming topics, including many features that are new to VB6. If you're looking for in-depth coverage of a specific VB6 feature, such as ADO database programming, then a "special-purpose" book may be your best bet. For easy-to-follow, well-rounded coverage of programming in VB6, Special Edition Using VB6 stands alone.

This book covers a wide range of VB but just introduces each topic with a narrow extend. I bought it because of the title 'Special Edition' and I think I can learn much from it.
The programming listings are poor. The programs are mostly stand-alone procedures and you cannot test them. How can the reader understand the meaning of the programs?
It teaches programming with several lines each chapter. You just learn some brief descriptions to the topics. Only one topic is more practical: Appendix B Packaging your applications teaches you to create a Setup.exe.
If I am a beginner, I think 'Using' series is better. If I am an Intermediate, I may choose 'Platinum Edition' series(quite similar with Special Edition'). I don't why the QUE want to print this book.
If you want to learn more specific topics, try other books! You don't know what you've learned and what you can write after reading the whole book. Worthless!
Tyler Is Not Here
The book is typically QUE--fair to acceptable content. However, there is no CD included, only a website address. However, the files are no longer available there. Worse--they did not answer the email response for clarification.
If your other customers are like me and appreciate the CD I would steer clear of this book. (This publisher?)
I had been worked with VB a little before, then I got this book and it's....WOOOOAOAOAOAAAH! It gives a great base to the language, and something on its subset (VBScript/VBA/ASP).
The book does get through a lot of things linked to the language, its components and things like that. However if someone wants to get 'professional' about a detail (eg: WinSock), one has to look elsewhere. This said, the background provided by this book makes understanding these 'extras' an easy thing.
Having access to M$'s MSDN is an extra help (in this, and any M$ language/sytem), for refering to API's and 'hidden' details.
