  1. Jeff Kent has written a book that will help the newcomer to Visual Basic (2005 or 2008) get into the water. I found his explanations clear and each topic came naturally from what had already been learned. There is even a brief introduction to ASP.NET. The examples all worked as expected, though I found the console.writeline() method a better way to go than debug.writeline() since it sends to the output window.

    Each chapter has a quiz and there is a final comprehensive quiz as well. My only regret with the book is that it doesn’t have a summary of the forms and methods used at the back.

    If you haven’t written a line of code, this book is a great way to get started. I wasn’t surprised to find two copies of it at the local library. It’s obvious Jeff is a good teacher and I’d bet his courses given live would be well worth taking.

  2. The book has 15 chapters. I had to stop reading it in the middle of the 8th chapter because the quality of exposition had degraded to such a low point. The gaps of missing information in the author’s explanations grew so big that the material became confounding (and further reading became intolerable). Very disappointing. Imagine using a map to get someplace that’s many miles from where you’re starting and what you know, and imagine that the map increasingly omits various pieces of directional information. The author did present solid explanatory development and details for the first few chapters. My background: I am new to computer programming. VB 2005 is my first programming language. I would NOT recommend this book to anyone who is new to computer programming, unless you would be happy with only the first half of the book being a good learning tool. I am now moving on to Halvorson’s “Microsoft Visual Basic 2005: Step by Step, in the hopes that he achieves what Kent did not, i.e. solid explanatory development and details from start to finish.

  3. Author Jeff Kent declares that he hopes he brings a different perspective to his books: a perspective that goes straight to the core concepts of Visual Basic that are explained in logical order.

    He largely succeeds in doing this, though the approach may be a bit disconcerting to those accustomed to other programming instruction manuals.

    Kent is a clear, concise writer. He teaches by example. The book is adequately, though not profusely, illustrated.

    He covers all the major topics of programming in Visual Basic, though he does not profess to cover any of them in extraordinary depth.

    The disconcerting part is the order Kent approaches his subjects in. Menus are left until late in the game as are the mechanics of file access. Personally – and it is entirely a personal view – I think these subjects should be addressed earlier. However, Kent claims his experience as an instructor leads him to conclude otherwise. As I said, it’s a personal view I think.

    Overall, a pretty good introduction to Visual Basic 2005.
