    Which VB book is the Best?


    Which VB book will cover from beginner to pro. I don't care how expenseive
    it is. I don't want to spent money for the wrong book. If you senior applicaton
    developer know a better book for Database Programming with Visual Basic 6,
    let me know. I'm a ginner.

    JOhn,

    There is no SINGLE book that will cover the entire range from Beginner
    to Professional. It cannot be done in less than about 5000 pages, and no
    one, in their right mind would attempt such a book. If you are just beginning,
    then there are several books that are good for the beginner, and once you
    have mastered the basics, then you can proceed to an Intermediate level book
    (and again there are several that are quite good). Only then should you
    consider looking into books targeted to the Advanced/Professional developer
    (and again here there are several). DO not be ion too much of a hurry.
    Trying to understand all there is to VB and programming is too much to attempt
    at one time.

    I have found that for the beginner, a good book to start with might be
    "Programming with Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 : An Object-Oriented Approach-Introductory"
    by Ekedahl and Newman, ISBN: 0760010730

    or

    "Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0: Introduction to Programming" by Sprague, ISBN:0538688211


    Either of these will give you a got start. But remeber to build ALL of the
    examples from these books, yourself. DO NOT simple read the book, and copy
    the examples from the enclosed CD. You will never learn ANYTHING by simply
    reading about it in a book. Just my humble opinion, worth about 2-cents.
