Introducing Microsoft® Visual Basic has never been easier! CLEARLY VISUAL BASIC: PROGRAMMING WITH MICROSOFT® VISUAL BASIC 2012, 3E by best-selling programming author Diane Zak uses a simple, proven, step-by-step approach that's ideal for readers learning a first programming language. Clear, brief chapters introduce the latest Visual Basic 2012 in small, manageable segments without cumbersome technical jargon. This easy-to-follow book focuses on the fundamentals, emphasizing broader Visual Studio 2012 methods rather than specific Visual Basic functions, to ensure readers master essential programming skills that can easily transfer to other languages.
This innovative approach uses visualization and applications to introduce the basics. Readers learn to analyze problem specification, then plan and create solutions using pseudocode, flowcharts, and desk-check tables for verification prior to executing code. Throughout the book, engaging figures emphasize important programming concepts, while new examples place concepts into meaningful context. Expanded, new exercises and review questions let readers practice what they're learning, while mini-quizzes and "Want More Info?" PDF files further ensure comprehension.
Trust CLEARLY VISUAL BASIC: PROGRAMMING WITH MICROSOFT® VISUAL BASIC 2012, 3E for the straight-forward approach to Visual Basic beginning programmers need for future success.
