Murach’s Visual Basic 2005: Training & Reference
|Dewey Subject Code:||006|
Altho nominally this is a book on programming using Microsoft's Visual Basic language, it is actually far more than that because so much of Microsoft's development level software is tied together. Specifically this book covers:
Programming in Visual Basic
the Visual Studio IDE
Microsoft's .NET Framework
Visual Basic is best programmed using Microsoft's Visual studio which is an integrated development environment or IDE. This is a software system that includes a text editor optimized for writing Visual Basic as well as other tools to facilitate the programming effort.
.NET is Microsoft's main approach to capturing the enterprise marketplace like they have done with the desktop. It remains to be seen just how successful they will be in convincing main stream developers to use .NET, but it is a system that should be understood before being immediately rejected.
SQL Server is Microsoft's heavy duty database (as opposed to the desktop databases such as Access and FoxPro). Database design and programming is a full blown programming area of its own, but there is enough in this book to get you started on applications development.
XML is the newest concept in exchanging information between computers. It is also the foundation for information storage and exchange in the .NET framework. Again, the coverage of XML in this book is by no means complete, but you will more than grasp the fundamentals.
CONCLUSION: There is an awful lot in this book. It basically covers applications developmnent and the fact that it uses Visual Basic to do it is almost incidental. This is a great way to get started.

You may want a copy of this book in the form of a planar cellulose information
retrieval system, i.e. a printed book. They make good gifts, and are more familiar
to most of us than electronic copies. But finding a printed copy of a book is
sometimes difficult. This section is intended to give you some help by making it
easy to use the more common ways of searching.
1 The first column consists of links to the home pages of the biggest suppliers of books by mail: Amazon and Barnes & Noble. These two suppliers have mostly new books, and their new book inventory probably has an overlap of something like 90%, but this does not mean that they both have exactly the same price. Both of them also list used books from outside suppliers, and the used book inventories are usually quite different. ABE Books is a loose grouping of some 17,000 independent bookstores that list their inventory in a common database - most of these are used books that vary from just issued best sellers to rare and antique books.
From all three home pages you can do searches, look at comments, check prices of both new and used copies, look at various formats such as hardback, paperback, eBook formats and much more.
2 The second column has links to Barnes & Noble and Amazon pages describing their new eBook Readers. These have become very popular lately as they allow the purchase of new books and textbooks at prices lower than the printed copies, and in a format that many people find attractive.
3 Clicking on the links in the third column sends you to the supplier along with the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) of the book described on this page if we have been able to find that number. Note that an ISBN refers to a specific edition of a book. Thus a single book might have many ISBNs: Hardback edition, softback, large print, foreign language and so on. Usually the book listing on B & N or Amazon will have links to the other editions that are available.
4 Is our ISBN wrong, or perhaps missing all together. Help us out. Search on B&N and Amazon. If you find one, please let us know. Enter the thirteen (Barnes & Noble) or ten (Amazon) digit number (no dashes) in the boxes above and click on the Submit ISBN button. The numbers shown in the boxes are the numbers we have on file, or zero if we haven't found one.
