About this title


Prepares reader to develop desktop applications with Microsoft VB6 and to pass the new MCSD exam #70-176. Covers these key skill areas: deriving the physical design, creating user services, creating and managing COM components, creating data services, testing the solution, deploying the application, and maintaining and supporting the application. Provides exclusive tear-out Cram Sheet with tips, acronyms, and memory joggers (mnemonics) to improve recall immediately before the exam.


Aimed at the Visual Basic (VB) 6 developer seeking to become a Microsoft Certified Solution Developer, MCSD Visual Basic 6 Desktop Exam Cram is a strong tool to use in preparing for exam 70-176 from Microsoft, which measures skills for VB application desktop development.

The best thing about this book is its in-depth coverage of the Microsoft certification testing process. Sections cover both the requirements for various levels of certification and the format of the VB tests. Microsoft is moving to a different testing format, called adaptive testing (in which test questions adapt to the skill level of the test taker, similar to today's GRE). The author gives the reader some excellent advice on taking both fixed-length (old-style) and the newer adaptive test questions.

Besides nuts-and-bolts coverage of the test format itself, MCSD Visual Basic 6 Desktop Exam Cram also provides a quick yet thorough tour of VB essentials, from basic data types and program statements to working with forms and controls, including basic ActiveX and COM development. Each section also provides sample test questions, along with excellent detailed explanations of which answers are correct and why. Of course, as the author notes, the best preparation for this test is actual experience with VB development, but this worthy guide can give you a quick refresher on central VB language and features.

With its concise format and insider's perspective on the Microsoft test format, MCSD Visual Basic 6 Desktop Exam Cram is a great choice for any reader preparing to earn the MSCD credential with VB. --Richard Dragan
