For absolute beginners, this is the best book I've read
I teach Visual Basic at several colleges, universities, and computer tech schools. For absolute beginners, this book is the best I've seen so far.

My 9 year old son is producing legitimate Visual Basic applications based on a reading of this book. The end of chapter exercises are superb mechanisms for reinforcing the objectives of the chapter.

In short, this is the first book a beginner should read when attempting to teach themselves Visual Basic.

Of course, no one or one thing is perfect. What my students clamor for more than anything else in an introductory text is at least at cursory look at the data control. Asking the students to spend 30 to 40 class hours without accessing a piece of data external to the program is a little much. This needs to be handled in any introductory text.
