The fast and easy way to learn VISUAL BASIC 2005

Start programming in Visual Basic 2005 right away — even if you don't have formal training, unlimited time, or a genius IQ. In Visual Basic 2005 Demystified, programming instructor Jeff Kent provides an effective, illuminating, and entertaining way to learn to use this versatile programming language in the new release of its integrated development environment.

This self-teaching guide begins by explaining fundamental programming concepts, such as forms, control structures, data types, variables, operators, loops, arrays, and procedures. Then you'll learn to create sophisticated graphical user interface elements, including menus, toolbars, and dialog boxes. By the time you're finished with the book, you'll be able to create database-driven Windows and Web applications. Featuring end-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam, this book will teach you to program in Visual Basic 2005 in no time at all.

This hands-on, self-teaching text offers:

  • An easy way to learn Visual Basic 2005
  • Programming projects that illustrate real-world concepts
  • A quiz at the end of each chapter to reinforce learning and pinpoint weaknesses
  • A final exam at the end of the book
  • No unnecessary technical jargon
  • A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work!

Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Visual Basic 2005 Demystified is your shortcut to learning this powerful programming language.
