Product Description
Customer Reviews
This new edition provides comprehensive coverage of Visual Basic 6. The text is feature oriented and its primary objective is to help students learn and use Visual Basic's available features. The two parts that make up the language of Visual Basic, including the graphical component, 'Visual',<br />where students learn to design screen user interfaces and the language component, 'Basic', where students learn to maneuver the screen objects, are first covered separately in the text. Students then learn to integrate the two to create useful applications. The text explains many intricate points<br />and rules, and uses numerous short examples to help illustrate these points and rules.<br /><br />There are many pedagogical aids including 'Key Terms'; 'Drill' and 'Practice' questions; and 'Chapter Projects' in each chapter. The 'Drill' questions contain a combination of 30 true-false, multiple choice, matching, and fill-in-the-blank questions, and 30 'Practice' questions that require students<br />to either write essay answers, design user interfaces and/or write program codes to perform tasks. The 'Chapter Project' problems contain half a dozen projects where students need to utilize the knowledge accumulated from the current and previous chapters to complete the projects. These are more<br />involved and challenging compared to those found in the 'Practice' section. A disk accompanying the text includes the 'Drill' questions where the correct answer will be displayed if an incorrect response has been inputted, answers to the 'Practice' questions, and projects that require data for<br />demonstration.
