Excellent Beginning to VB 6.0

This set provided me with a great jumpstart into VB 6. Inside of a month I have learned what I need to move on to ASP, COM and DCOM and have also used VBScript to make my web work shine. I used to wonder what everyone was talking about at technet conferences and at work, but now I can hold my own in a conversation. Not to mention write some pretty cool apps. Great Deal !

Builds a good foundation for more complex books

This is meant as an introductory book to the operating system concepts, and some applications. Most of the materials covered in this book have been covered even in books written in the 80's and 90's. It includes some supplement chapters on Windows 2000/XP and Linux. If you're just learning for the first time how an OS is suppose to function, then those supplement chapters won't make much sense to you. Since this book is a cooperation of three authors, you'll notice some inconsistencies and contradictory claims through out the chapters, especially in the first 5 chapters.
