Book Description

  This pack consists of the book 'An Introduction to Programming with Visual Basic .NET' (ISBN: 0130306576) and the additional Visual Basic .Net 2003 supplement.

  'This book is an excellent introduction to programming using Visual Basic.NET. The examples start with basics and gradually develop to solve real-life problems.' - Amit Kalani, CIStems Solutions LLC.

      'Schneider's proven approach works as effectively with VB.NET as it does with Visual Basic 6.0; the use of a variety of short examples makes the concepts being presented clear and understandable. The end-of-chapter programming projects build on this base and lead to a thorough understanding of the context for these concepts.' - Chris Panell, Heald College

  Since its introduction in 1991, Visual Basic has become the tool of choice for developing user-friendly applications in today's business world. Easy to use and fun to learn, Visual Basic is the state of the art in Basic programming that allows you to take full control of Microsoft's best-selling Windows applications.

  The latest incarnation of Visual Basic, called Visual Basic .NET, brings the language into the Internet age by incorporating the .NET framework. Students and developers alike are eagerly embracing the dynamic new features of the language and find Visual Basic.NET to be the ideal tool to understand the development of computer programs.

  Written by best-selling author David I. Schneider, An Introduction to Visual Basic .NET assumes no prior programming experience and includes these important pedagogical features:

  Thoroughly explains the fundamentals of accurate, modern programming methodology using the elements of Windows' graphical user interface.

Includes an entire chapter on database programming using ADO.NET and SQL.

Presents object-oriented techniques throughout the book and culminates in a complete chapter devoted to OOP, including inheritance and polymorphism.

Supplies many examples, projects, and exercises that students and professionals can appreciate.

The text also features a wealth of learning aids, including exercises, practice problems, programming projects, case studies, comments, summaries and detailed appendices.

  Valuable supplements include:

  An Instructors' Resource CD containing solutions to all the exercises and programming projects, as well as a test item file.

A companion website (http://www.prenhall.com/schneider) containing additional student assessment exercises with immediate feedback, PowerPoint slides in lecture format, source code for download and additional links and resources.

An accompanying CD containing all examples and case studies from the book along with all the data files needed to work the exercises.
