The book is divided into three Parts. Part One goes through all the main programming concepts carefully. These need to be understood by all students. Part Two covers a variety of topics which for some students will prove useful in their project work. These cover items such as designing menus, printing reports and interfacing with the Internet. Part Three goes through the main stages of producing a project to 'A' level standard by using a sample project based on a snooker club. All the programming concepts used in the sample project are covered earlier in the book. The approach throughout is a very practical one. Running throughout Parts One and Two are 47 programs, with step-by-step instructions explaining how to build them and explanations about how they work. In Part Three you are taken through each stage in the design and coding of the full project, again using a step-by-step approach for the coding.

Derek Christopher is a lecturer in IT at Luton VI Form College.Review:
Great book, 8 September, 2001 Reviewer: Elaine Graham from Scotland I have just started college to do an HNC IT course. I was advised to get this book Computing Projects in Visual Basic by Derek Christopher. I am going through this book with great excitement as I find It really easy to understand. A must for visual basic learners well that is my opinion. Hope you all like this book Elaine Graham Best book I've seen for anyone wanting to learn Visual Basic, 8 April, 2001 Reviewer: A Reader from Gloucestershire, England This book is an excellent guide for anyone wanting to learn Visual Basic. I had no experience of programming of any sort but still managed to understand everything the book goes through, grasping the concepts behind the language. Everything is explained well and set out in clear simple steps, that are easy to follow, with code you can use to create the programs shown. The chapters have logical progression and work at a sensible rate, so you learn everything you need to as you go. A great book. An excellent introductory text to VB-based A-Level projects, 16 March, 2001 Reviewer: John Vesty from Manchester, England Derek Christopher has produced a publication that encapsulates most of that required for an Advanced Level project. The earlier chapters introduce the student to basic concepts of Visual Basic. The final chapters cover a project (Snooker Club) that covers the file-handling aspects of VB (Random and Sequential files) that allow the student access to the higher grade of marks. My only criticism would be that a lengthier study of writing VB code to handle Access database tables would prove invaluable for students tackling the AS Computing. An excellent book for any Visual Basic student., 4 December, 2000 Reviewer: Chris Harmonic from U. K. As a second year HND student part of the course requirements are that the students' must produce a project of their choice. As a driving instructor I decided to produce a driving theory package using Visual Basic. Whilst looking for books about VB I stumbled across this one and how pleased I am that I did. It is concise no frills,tells it as it is. It even covers subjects like random access files, which aren't covered any other text that I've come across. if you want to learn Visual Basic, buy this book. It's a must. Affordable Introduction to programming topics and VB, 29 November, 2000 Reviewer: Mr. Claret from Bridgend, Wales An excellent overview of the fundamentals or programming tied to visual basic. Well written and clear this book breaks learning Visual Basic into small manageable chunks ideal for use in the classroom or for the novice as a home study guide. Each chapter introduces you to a new topic takes you step by step through writing them then consolidates the learning at the end of the chapter with a series of exercises challenging and applying the students knowledge. This has been an invaluable aid and time saver in the classroom, combined with its reasonable price, I would heartily recommend it to anyone teaching programming and Visual Basic from scratch. An 'A' Level Students Visual Basic Project Bible, 28 November, 2000 Reviewer: A Reader from Essex Superb book. The books takes you through the main concepts of VB programming, it contains very clear code and takes you through each project step by step (also contains screen shots, so you know how the program should look). The biggest bonus is the fact that this book takes you right through a major project, with code, action charts, and everything else you could possibly need to know. I would be completely lost without this book.
