For Advanced Visual Basic courses found in Computer Science, CIS, MIS, and Business departments at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
This book teaches Visual Basic programming with a focus on the programming techniques required most in the industry. Students are taught theory within the context of building specific applications, making learning more effective and arming them with a portfolio of skills they can easily apply in the business world. The authors provide this hands-on experience by structuring each chapter to cover the theory, then build applications and explain the theory in detail through the applications.
