Review:

"One of the few books that really embraces the truly practical, hands-on approach." — Sukan Makmuri, Devry University

"This book has the best use of examples, explanations, graphics and color I have seen in my 20 years of teaching programming." — Richard Hewer, Ferris State University

"I can't wait to start using this book in my classes. The model of test-drive the application, then build it, is very effective. Accessible, yet with enough depth that students will walk away with a solid programming foundation." — Catherine Wyman, DeVry University

"This book is an excellent introduction to the entire .NET environment." — Dr. Ken Schoonover, Chubb Institute

"What a great book! Gently leads new students through Visual Basic .NET 2003 concepts, beginning with an application test-drive, followed by a step-by-step process of building the application, running it and debugging ii-with self-reviews along the way!" — Terrel Hall, CEO, Enterprise Component Technologies
