talk about a book that has everything!

this book is simply the best book out there...if will teach you how to do some simple win32 programming, and directx as well. Plus don't forget about AI, multithreading, graphics...it also comes with a cd full of other articles about game programming and direct 3d, etc... this is proably the most comprehensive books our there...which makes sense since andre wrote it. Although getting throught this think book will take alot of time and patience...it will all be worth it!

Excellent for Beginners

So you have created your Access database and have exhausted every wizard and control that you can use without actually coding. You still need a little something, but aren't sure how to get a little (or a lot) more out of Access - then this is the book for you.This book will ease you into writing come code while jumping right in with both feet. The examples are simple enough to understand, but you are given enough information to make them work for you. Many times when you are beginning, the example is exactly what you want to do, but you are not given enough information to insert it into your project and make it work - this is not the case here. I had this book (and its predicessor) open on my desk regularly during my first Access project and still crack it open for ideas and reference. (Sure I could look it up in an advanced book - but why?)If you can only buy one beginner book on VBA - this should be it.
