About

Features

Signature “Live Code™ Approach” — Language features are presented in the context of a wide variety of complete working programs.

  • Features thousands of lines of code in hundreds of complete working programs.
  • Enables students to confirm that programs run as expected.
  • Students can also download the code from the book's Companion Website at http://www.pearson.com/deitel or from the author's website at www.deitel.com.

Outstanding, consistent, and applied pedagogy:

  • Icons throughout identify Software Engineering Observations; Good Programming Practices; Common Programming Errors; Portability Tips; Performance Tips; Testing and Debugging Tips; and Look-and-Feel Observations.
  • Full-color presentation, including syntax coloring, code highlighting, and extensive comments.
  • Late objects approach. The discussion of creating custom classes is now deferred until Chapter 9, but in the early chapters, lots of existing objects are still used. Chapter 10 discusses how to create powerful new classes quickly by using inheritance to “absorb” the capabilities of existing classes, and presents the crucial concepts of polymorphism, abstract classes and interfaces.
  • Shorter printed book with optional online advanced chapters. The printed book contains the core content for introductory Visual Basic courses. Several optional online chapters are included for second courses and professionals. These are available in searchable PDF format on the book’s password-protected Companion Website–see the access card in the front of this book. If you are an instructor with a complimentary review copy that did not come with an access card, contact your Pearson Education/Prentice-Hall representative.
  • Making a Difference exercises set. The authors encourage you to use computers and the Internet to research and solve problems that of social significance. These new exercises are meant to increase awareness of important issues the world is facing. The authors hope you’ll approach them with your own values, politics and beliefs.
  • Includes an optional case study on object-oriented design with UML. Walks students through a system design that is clear to OOD and UML novices, while still demonstrating key OOD concepts and related UML modeling techniques.
  • Hundreds of interactive self-review questions and programming exercises.Includes both simple and complex exercises that can easily be tailored to the needs of specific courses and instructors, including “What does this code do?”, “What’s wrong with this code?” and “Using the Debugger” exercises.

SUPPLEMENTS

  • Test Bank
    A chapter-by-chapter set of question that can be used by the instructor for quizzes or made available to the student for self-study.
  • PowerPoint
    A comprehensive set of PowerPoint slides, including of all figures and tables in the text, can be used by instructors for class presentations or by students for lecture preview or review.
  • Solutions Manual
    Solutions to end-of-chapter Review Questions and Problems.
  • Companion Website www.pearson.com/deitel
    A collection of valuable teaching and learning resources for instructors and students.
  • VideoNotes are step-by-step video tutorials specifically designed to enhance the programming concepts presented in Deitel, Visual Basic 2012 How to Program, 6e. Students can view the entire problem-solving process outside of the classroom–when they need help the most. VideoNotes are available with the purchase of a new copy of select titles. Go to www.pearsonhighered.com/videonotes for a brief VideoNotes demo.

Appropriate for all basic-to-intermediate level courses in Visual Basic 2012 programming. Visual Basic 2012 How to Program, Sixth Edition is also appropriate for anyone interested in learning programming with Visual Basic 2012.


Created by world-renowned programming instructors Paul and Harvey Deitel, Visual Basic 2012 How to Program, Sixth¿Edition introduces all facets of the Visual Basic 2012 language through a hands-on approach with hundreds of working programs. This book has been thoroughly updated to reflect the major innovations Microsoft has incorporated in Visual Basic 2012; all discussions and sample code have been carefully audited against the newest Visual Basic language specification. The Sixth Edition is updated to Visual Studio 2012 and includes new chapters on Windows 8 UI app development, Windows 8 graphics/multimedia, Windows Phone 8 app development and Windows Azure.


Readers begin by getting comfortable with the free Visual Basic Express 2012 IDE and basic VB syntax. Next, they build their skills one step at a time, mastering control structures, classes, objects, methods, variables, arrays, and the core techniques of object-oriented programming. With this strong foundation in place, the Deitels introduce more sophisticated techniques, including inheritance, polymorphism, exception handling, strings, GUI's, data structures, generics, and collections. Throughout, the authors show developers how to make the most of Microsoft’s Visual Studio tools. A series of appendices provide essential programming reference material on various topics.
