David I. Schneider spent over 32 years teaching at the University of Maryland, and has published an impressive 28 books over the past 18 years. He is the author of several best-selling texts, including his Visual Basic Series with Prentice Hall. Why are his books best-sellers? Students love his extensive use of examples and applications–a concept that stems from his teaching experience and results in books that are "tried and true." His best-selling Visual Basic texts have been successfully used for many years and have received consistent praise from both students and instructors.
An Introduction to Programming Using Visual Basic 2012, Ninth Edition —consistently praised by both students and instructors — is designed for readers with no prior computer programming experience. Now updated for Visual Basic 2012, Schneider focuses on teaching problem-solving skills and sustainable programming skills. A broad range of real-world examples, section-ending exercises, case studies, and programming projects gives readers more hands-on experience than any other Visual Basic book on the market.
NEW! This edition is available with MyProgrammingLab, an innovative online homework and assessment tool. Through the power of practice and immediate personalized feedback, MyProgrammingLab helps students fully grasp the logic, semantics, and syntax of programming.
