From the Beginning: A Comprehensive Introduction to Visual Basic Programming
Schneider’s Introduction to Programming Using Visual Basic, Tenth Edition brings continued refinement to a textbook praised in the industry since 1991. A favorite for both instructors and students, Visual Basic 2015 is designed for readers with no prior computer programming experience. Schneider introduces a problem-solving strategy early in the book and revisits it throughout allowing you to fully develop logic and reasoning. A broad range of real-world examples, section-ending exercises, case studies and programming projects gives you a more hands-on experience than any other Visual Basic book on the market.
The Tenth Edition keeps the pace with modern programming methodology while incorporating current content and practices. Each chapter is rich yet concise due to to the author’s focus on developing chapters around crucial subjects rather than covering too many topics superficially. The amount and the range of projects provided in the text offer flexibility to adapt the course according to the interests and abilities of the readers. Some programming projects in later chapters can be assigned as end-of-the-semester projects.
