Reviews - What do customers think about VB 2005 Black Book (Black Book (Paraglyph Press))?

concise  Sep 24, 2006
This book is very concise. It is basically a trimmed down copy of the MSDN, as it only shows the "noteworthy" members of classes. It doesn't have detailed examples, but does include a CD with code examples. You can even connect to Paraglyph's FTP server and download examples (you can even get the entire book in .pdf format).

I like that the book shows examples of how to implement something through design-time, then the same example done through run-time (using code).

One thing I noticed is that it lists properties with descriptions, but those descriptions always start with "Obtains..." or "Gets..." which (to me) implies that the property is read-only. There is nothing that tells me if the property is read-only, or if I can set a value.

This is a reference book that is easier to navigate than the MSDN. Don't rely on it for examples.
Simple examples and lots of topics  Jul 4, 2006
This book looks very similar to the Teach yourself vb 2003 in 21 from sams publishing. I liked that book alot. I have to get used to the black book style in which each chapter seems to be separated in 2 sections. Nonetheless, the topics and examples are great.

I wish there would have been a chapter on using chrystal reports and another on using sql server 2005. Also, I wish there was a better online companion for this book. It could be a great book.

One thing happened to me that I hope the publisher has corrected. I had a problem coping ch 5 from the cd to my computer. I contacted the publisher and they let me ftp another copy of the cd.
