Title: Microsoft Visual Basic .NET Step by Step--Version 2003 (Step By Step (Microsoft))
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: Michael Halvorson
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Aimed at beginners to Visual Basic


I found this to be an excellent book for beginners to Visual Basic. As the title states, this book takes you "step by step" through all aspects of Visual Basic .NET. It assumes no prior programming experience with Visual Basic. The book was designed with a variety of skill levels in mind so that new programmers can learn software development fundamentals using real world applications and experienced Visual Basic programmers can quickly master the essential tools and programming techniques offered in the new Visual Basic .NET version.
The book starts off slowly by showing the reader how to create their first simple Visual Basic .NET program. This helps to build confidence and quickly familiarize the reader with the Visual Basic environment. The book is well organized and divided into various parts, such as, creating the user interface, database programming, internet programming, object oriented programming, and more. Each of these parts is clearly presented with plenty of sample code and screen shots.
I highly recommend this book to all beginners to Visual Basic.

Title: Head First EJB (Brain-Friendly Study Guides)

Great for the test


If your not buying this to pass the test, do yourself a favor and don't use EJB. That being said:

I bought this book about a year ago after already owing Ed Roman's Mastering Enterprise Java Beans. It is a great introduction to EJB and an awesome study guide. I went through this book start to finish in about eight hours before going to take the SCBCD test. I scored very well.

This is the best book on EJB development I have read. It is well detailed and explains everything in manner that is easy to understand.

I was suprised that the "Head First" series from O'Reilly was so good. Normally, I hate O'Reilly books.
