Entry level Visual Basic question...

By New Graduate ·
Hope you all had a great holiday. I was hoping someone can recommend a good entry-level Visual Basic book. More specifically, I'm trying to lear VB with respect to relational databases like Access (since I already have it.) Thanks for your input!

Visual Basic 6 Database Programming, Fronchowiak and Helda. It's published by IDG Books, it is invaluable. It is one of the few books I brought with me when I moved to Florida recently to work at a local dot com. I bought it for my own use, and then took two classes the year after that used that as one of the principle texts for the class. It was also useful in a couple other classes, though it wasn't one that was used by the professor.

Actually I would recommend not getting a book for 6 months to a year and then getting a .NET one. VB.NET and VB6 are so drastically different that programmers will almost completely have to relearn their skillsets to make the transition. If you start off learning VB.NET you will make that transition much easier on yourself and avoid learning a programming style that will make moving to VB.NET that much more difficult. Despite the reservations many programmers have about many of the changes in VB.NET it is the next version of VB and people will have to transition eventually if they want to stay with VB (little as VB.NET may resemble the great BASIC language that VB 6 is based upon).

I learned VB by picking up the SAMS series Learn VB in 27 Days. I know that the also have Database one too. I've SAMS to be the best for picking up new languages. Whatever you do, stay away from the following book "Learn to Program Databases Using Visual Basic". I can't remember who wrote it, but it was the worst money I ever spent. Completely useless.
