Your opinion does not seem to be about the Dummies book. Perhaps this is unintentional or perhaps you meant to put this opinion in a different category. by ariadne

I did VB last year using learn VB in 10min and 24 hours by saams. Needless to say these books although brilliant for last minute checks before exams they dont go into details too much. Maybe you could give brief details as to why this book beats the rest? Apart from that I'll certainly look into purchasing this book for this semester! by kegan5
I bought this book for my college course. It provides an easy-to-follow guide to performing simple programming tasks. However, most of the programming I ended up doing was out of the scope of the book, but still was very useful. Good op. by m_weller
