An excellent introduction into Database Web-Design


If you have basic knowledge of Active Server Pages than this book is an excellent introduction into the world of Database driven Web-Pages. It does not go into every last detail on the subject but it will let anyone with just basic knowledge of VBscript(The default ASP language) get a database site up and running in very little time.

This book helped me learn VBScript


Do you want to know if you have all the admin tools installed on your computer? This is the first script in this book. What about mismatched computer names? This is the second script in the book. Sure the book does not copy pictures of "object models" from Microsoft, but then I am a network administrator, and pictures of object models are USELESS!!!!

I like the way the author organized the material into common tasks that a network administrator does. I think the author bio says he was a consultant, and it shows. This book was written by someone who knows networks inside and out. I have already modified one of his scripts, and I used it on a regular basis to "monitor" some of my servers. It is the script that dumps out information about all the processes running on my server. This script alone is worth the price of the book.

Excellent Concepts and Examples for Intermediate User


This book is very well written for the lay person to intermediate user. It explains concepts in a clear and concise manner for non programmers but still packing in lots of important and relevant information. The examples are both conceptually useful as well as attractive for the graphic design audience.
This is not your typical "look what i did with Flash, Ma" I'll explain what i did without really imparting any knowledge to the reader. This really outlines concepts and programming techniques for the intermediate user.

Foxall's Book- Excellent for Beginning to Advanced VB'ers


James Foxall's "Visual Basic Book .Net 2003 in 24 Hours" is a winner. The change to VB.NET from Visual Basic can be challenging. James starts out introducing the Graphical User Interface environment. That is important as the GUI can be intimidating to new Visual Studio programmers. James is thorough in his examples. He always reminds you to set the startup form for each project. He tells you how to write short procedures, introduces you to modules, and he discusses objects and collections. I am nearing the end of his book and look forward to his introduction on web development. James Foxall's book won't be the only one you need for learning VB.NET. But for the beginner and intermediate programmer, I recommend that his book be your first book to read.
