First Visual Basic book

When I was trying to make the upgrade from Visual Basic 4.0 to Visual Basic 6.0, this was the first book that I bought. This book is very easy to read and there are ample examples to illustrate each principle that the author is trying to teach you. I combined this books with the 4 "Learn to Program Visual Basic" books by John Smiley to give me a solid foundation in Visual Basic 6.0. The cartoons in this book will reduce down the stress of trying to learn something new.
Now that I am moving into .Net technology, I really appreciate how good this book was for people who have little or no experience with Visual Basic. This should be your first Visual Basic 6 book. By the way, Visual Basic 6 and the legacy source code that goes with it will be around for years to come.

Possibly the worst texbook i ever owned!

I hate the way the book was organized. It's just a few chapters with each chapter dedicated to a separate network layer. This makes the chapters absolutly huge, makeing it very easy to get lost in them. The top down approch the author uses is horrible. A lot of times the book talks about a method that you can see is bad, and then then it says, this method is old, has the followind problems and is rearely used. But the worst thing had to be the author's sense of humor. It was extermly poor and made the reading pretty hard. So as an inroduction to networking i hated it.

Best book of this century for Electrodynamics

This is the best book in Electromagnetism I have ever read! There are a lot of good problems. If you have enough background ( studying Landau theoretical courses), you could easily go through it.
