About

Features

  • Predefined classes are presented early in the book, so students do not start to create classes until the very end.
  • Objects are given familiar names, rather than programming terminology, to keep them in context.
  • Real data is used and examples are streamlined so students are not distracted from the programming techniques illustrated.
  • Upgraded - Visual Basic version has been upgraded from Visual Basic 2015 to Visual Basic 2017.
  • New - VB2017 IntelliSense features are used.
  • New - VB2017 Run to Click debugging feature is explained and used in a walkthrough.
  • New - Instructions for carrying out thirteen important Visual Basic operations are presented on the inside back cover.
  • Updated - 145 Screen captures have been replaced with up-to-date versions.Output for most applied exercises and programming projects are shown in screen captures to helpclarify the intent of the exercise.
  • Databases used in 35 exercises have been updated or expanded.
  • Over 130 different types of examples (with over 51 covering business-related applications) and 1,300 exercises are included.
  • Carefully designed exercises appear at the end of each section. Exercises require students to trace programs, find errors and write programs. The exercises both reinforce the understanding of the key ideas of the section and challenge the student to explore applications.
  • Practice problems with solutions are specifically chosen to focus on potential trouble spots and provide a warm-up to the exercises by appearing just before the exercise set.
  • The large number and range of difficulty of the programming projects provide the flexibility to adapt the course to the interests and abilities of the students.
  • The programming projects not only reflect the variety of ways that computers are used in the business community, but also present some games and general-interest topics.
  • Some programming projects in later chapters can be assigned as end-of-the-semester projects.

A Current and Comprehensive Introduction to Visual Basic Programming

Schneider’s Introduction to Programming Using Visual Basic has been consistently praised in the industry since 1991 and is a favorite of instructors and students. The 11th Edition is updated for Visual Basic 2017, providing an ideal tool for students learning their first programming language. The text keeps pace with modern programming methodology while incorporating current content and good programming practices.

Schneider emphasizes problem solving by discussing problem-solving techniques early and using them throughout the book. He also ensures each chapter is rich yet concise by developing chapters around crucial subjects rather than covering too many topics superficially. The new edition provides a broad range of real-world examples, section-ending exercises, case studies, and programming projects that provide students with the most current and hands-on experience of any Visual Basic book on the market. The number and range of projects give instructors the flexibility to adapt the course according to the interests and abilities of students. Some programming projects in later chapters can be assigned as end-of-the-semester projects.
