Reviews - What do customers think about Visual Basic 6 Black Book: The Only Book You'll Need on Visual Basic?

Great service!  May 19, 2008
Product was in perfect condition and service was great. I'll purchase again from this vender.

 
Excellent book  Oct 17, 2006
This is a GREAT book that goes into detail on how to use all the major controls and components. It does NOT go into detail about the fundamentals of the language, like functions, routines etc. If you're brand new to the language, this book will show you everything you want to know about controls, but you won't be able to write a program with it. Excellent as a supplemental book.
 
Comprehensive  Oct 5, 2005
If you are new to VB6, don't let the size and wide coverage of topics scare you. Between this and google, you can tackle most problems and understand most VB6 code that you read. (Except maybe, very object oriented or API-laden code).

If you are just learning, get this and read it cover to cover even if you don't understand everything. You'll remember that there was an example to do just want you wanted. His examples, while usually VERY simple, usually give you enough to get a good start.

Mine is so worn out the pages are coming out. It is never more than an arms length from my desk.
 
THE BOOK YOU SHOULD'NT BUY FOR VB 6.0 by Steven Holzner  Aug 15, 2002
When buying this book I had assumed it to a pure form of Visual Basic, I have found other "Black Book" titles to be a great reference and also a great starting point. However this book, well how can I say, lacked a point. I found myself half way through the cut, copied, and edited version of msdn's reference manual, that Steven Holzner happened to call a "Black Book" around chapter 7 I found that he was just starting to mention a simple checkbox. I don't believe that anyone needs a book this dull or a book this slow. If your in the mood to search through endless pages in the form of any second rate edited extensive reference manual, then you can have fun blowing your pay check.
