Learning to Program in Visual Basic

Publication 5th December 2019. 136pp

Available in printed and digital formats.

This book is a straightforward guide to the Visual Basic programming language and programming techniques. It covers all of the practical programming skills that may be required up to GCSE level and for those at AS Level with limited exposure to VB. It is suitable for both experienced programmers, students or individuals with very little or no programming experience in other languages. 

It teaches basic syntax and programming techniques and introduces a number of useful features such as:

  • Developing graphical user interfaces (GUIs) with the visual designer in visual studio.
  • SQLite, which enables the creation and processing of a database from within a Visual Basic .NET program. This provides an alternative to writing to a text file when data needs to be stored and retrieved.
  • The Visual Studio debugger, which can be used to help find elusive logic errors.

Questions and exercises are included in every chapter. Answers to these as well as over 120 VB programs for all the examples and exercises given in the book are provided to students and teachers in a free pack available to download on our website.

What people say...

I'd just like to express my thanks for the material and support. If I had needed to have made my own resources, the results wouldn't have been as good and now I'm happy to tailor and tweak the resources to fit my own teaching and the student's own skills.

Paul Sloane. Head of Computer Science, Lady Manners School

Professional looking resources that would enable consistency within the department and the use of worksheet and homework task that comprehensively covered the spec points.
