In-depth coverage of exam topics
This book is designed as a guide to certification for Visual Basic programmers of all skill levels. Each chapter begins with a short statement of prerequisites so that you can easily find the appropriate starting point. If you are an intermediate programmer, for example, with knowledge of Visual Basic forms and controls, but little knowledge of object-oriented programming (OOP), Chapter 9 is your starting point. Each chapter also lists the specific test skills covered in the chapter. These skills map directly to the exam matrix found in Appendix A. Another way to use the book is to check your skills against the exam matrix and then move to the appropriate chapters for coverage of you weak areas. Once you have decided to read a particular chapter, you will find each chapter constructed as a classroom lesson. Each chapter, of course, has a significant amount of narrative explanation, but along with the instruction, you’ll find short demonstrations known as "Check It Outs" that can be accomplished in 5-10 minutes. These items are intended to reinforce the chapter lesson. After you have read the chapter, you will find a complete hands-on exercise at the end. This exercise provides step-by-step coding to walk you through a complete example of the principles in the chapter. In many cases, the exercises will highlight new skills or variations. Therefore, you should consider the hands-on exercise as part of the lesson. You have not finished your learning until the exercise is complete. After the exercise, you will find advanced exercise topics that you can perform on your own. These are listed under the "For the Certified Pro" section. The chapter ends with some suggested reading topics and a quiz. The quiz is designed to give you some idea of what the certification exam is like. Typically, the certification exam consists of two types of questions: Check box and option button. Check box questions have more than one answer while option button questions have only one answer. In the case of the book, you should pick all correct answers for a given question. The answers to the questions are found after the test. The book contains a CD-ROM with complete answers for every "Check It Out", hands-on exercise, and "Certified Pro" exercise. The CD-ROM also contains an installable exam program that provides a timed test similar to the true certification exam. You should use this program as your "final exam" before attempting certification.
