Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Excellent book for a beginner


I am an experienced network administrator and the IS director of a large firm. I've never learned a programming language and felt that it was time that I did. I've tried several books but none of them worked for me. They all seemed disorganized and moved at a slow pace.
All that's changed since I found Deitel's Visual Basic .NET How to Program. I'm making progress on a daily basis and every minute I spend with this book rewards me with a learning experience.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone but especially to beginners like my self that want/need to learn outside the structured classroom.

Good Tutorial, Bad Test Prep


I really enjoyed this book. It's explaniations are incredibly good and it explains SQL Server very well.
However, the exam questions suck.
Two Examples:
Page 230: Question 4 - It says the correct answer is D, but there is no such command as sp_grantaccess ( It should be sp_grantdbaccess )
Page 232: Question 8 - again, there is no such command as sp_activateapprole, it's sp_setapprole.
I could go on, but it's really frustrating trying to use a book for an exam when it misleads like this.
