About this title

Synopsis:

This book is an ideal introduction to programming in Visual Basic for students with no prior programming experience and is excellent for taught courses or as an aid to self-study.


·        A spiral approach to teaching object-oriented programming introduces new ideas carefully one-at-a-time, rather than all at once. Simple ideas are introduced early, and then incorporated in a more sophisticated context later on.

·        The book contains coverage of graphics from the start to motivate students, plus early coverage of object-oriented concepts in line with current teaching practice.

·        Topics are explained using a wide variety of applications as examples, such as information systems, games and scientific calculations.

·        UML diagrams are used throughout the text.

·        End-of-chapter pedagogy includes self-test questions, exercises, ‘programming principles’ and ‘programming pitfalls.

·        The companion website contains the code of all the programs in the book

From the Back Cover:
