Title: Programming Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0
Publisher: Microsoft Press
Authors: Francesco Balena
Rating: 5/5
Customer opinion - 5 stars out of 5
Highly recommended for experienced programmer

I am an experienced C++ programmer. As a first-time user of Visual Basic, I was tasked to write a program that interacts with a SQL-Server database, the Windows registry, and external files (I hit a lot of topics). I used a variety of Windows Common controls, including ListView and TreeView controls.
Between this book and Visual Basic on-line documentation, I could do everything I wanted. This book has excellent examples - just what you need to do the obvious and basic tasks.
I also bought a "Using Visual Basic" by Eidahl, which was a waste.

Un excellent volume !

Le livre de Macromedia est un excellent document pour débuter l'apprntissage de Flex, la nouvelle technologie de Macromedia pour les RIA. Il est très précis, clairement illustré par des propos efficaces et couvre entièrement l'implantation du logiciel et de son framework. À noter que la plupart des exemples sont pour Flex 1.0 alors que la version 1.5 est disponible depuis quelques temps. Il faudra donc adopter certains exemples de code. Somme toute, c'est un excellent livre de Macromedia Press. Il vaut les quelques 60$.

I did not learn Javascript.

I bought this book thinking that I'd LEARN Javascript. Instead, this book is solely a collection of scripts, most of which are freely available from plenty of websites. If that's what you want, then perhaps this collection is for you. I wanted to LEARN, and this is not the way. This collection of scripts gives the reader no explanation as to how any of them work. Not a training book by any means.
