Jim Maloney covers allot of ground and he does it without being cute, like some other authors. It sounds like he's been dealing with students in many seminars. This book is a very good introduction to many important subjects. It's a great place to start learning about VB6.

Weak in the hands on lab(s).
The book is well written and reads easily however the lab is one long program on a video store. I have found that books with these examples tend to get bogged down. Using "one long program" instead of different examples with each chapter, makes it difficult for the reader to skip a chapter because you have to pick up the program where the skipped chapter ended. If you are one who likes the one lab/program, then I think you will like this book better than I did. Otherwise try the Wrox series.

This book is a breath of fresh air, not only because it's chock full of real-world examples, but because it's written clearly, concisely and doesn't take up 3 feet of bookshelf space. Perhaps more importantly, it also manages to explain the kind of subject matter that is usually reserved for experienced programmers, but in a way that a novice will embrace and understand.
It covers all the major topics that VB programmers encounter, with useful examples (not just theoretical applications of the information), and without waffle or padding. It's so hard to find a book that cuts out all the junk and gets straight to the point, but Mr. Maloney has done it. I think this book is absolutely priceless.
