Learning to Program with Visual Basic
I had to buy this book for a class and frankly it is not a good book. Lots of code errors that make it confusing. Every one of my classmates complained about the book. The professor eventually told us to not use the book and he gave handouts he had written instead.

Not an easy book to learn visual basic 6
We were given this book for my programming class and the author is very long winded on every topic and a lot of times you read the topic and when finished you are more confused than when you started so you end up going to a different book for better understanding.
The code for the projects are broken up into seperate chunks and he doesn't always give you all of the code needed to make the program work or his code is wrong so you spend more time trying to find the problem and get it to work than learning the topic that the code is supposed to teach you.
The index of the book tends to be off the majority of the time so when you need to look something up it will not be on the page that it says it's on. I went to the publisher's website for a page with the error corrections but they only correct a few items and I spotted a ton more in the book that I feel is critical to get the code to work.
If you are really interested in learning Visual Basic 6 I would suggest going for a different book than this, this book is not worth the money.
