excelent tool for moving beyong the basics
This is yet another great book from Sybex. ive purchased most of the visual basic books that sybex put out, and i have yet to buy one i didnt get something - correction - A LOT from. this is not the sort of book a beginner should be looking at, "Visual Basic 6 Complete" (also from Sybex) might be more appropriate there, and "Visual Basic 6 Professional Step By Step" from Microsoft Press would definatly be a good choice. Mastering visual basic 6 provides examples and explanations of graphics processing code, and ActiveX control development, along with dozens of other topics, and for its price (as with all Sybex books), it cant be beat.

good for the intermediate level programmer
I first started learning vb about a year ago and this was the very first book I purchased (going off of friends recommendations). At first I felt a little disappointed with the book and I felt somewhat lost in it. Now that I have more overall knowledge of vb this books seems to become clearer and clearer. I would spend quite a bit of time learning how to make small apps that don't do a whole lot but teach you the basics before getting into this book. The first few chapters are fairly straight forward and aimmed directly towards newbies but before continuing through the book I would pick up a little more experience.

All inclusive learning/reference tool
No matter what your Visual Basic learning level is, from needing a beginner's introduction to wanting to move up to a more advanced level, this is the book for you. Don't let the 1285 pages scare you. The read is neither dry nor boring, and each page hands-on teaches you something you can take with you. Topics cover the Visual Studio environment, the intrinsic toolbox tools for VB, plus expands into additional components and references, making this a one-stop learning reference. You can't go wrong with this title.
