Because of this I decided to write something about this book.

Because of this I decided to write something about this book. Maybe you know but Deitel's are one of the best writers about Object Oriented Programming. Their most valuable feature is using very simple (easyly understandable) ways to explain complex OOP concepts especially for beginners and intermadiates. I think their new book about Visual Studio 2008 will be also helpful for my software professionals.

With Visual Basic.NET, Microsoft transforms Visual Basic into a supercharged tool for developing next-generation Web services and Windows applications. Now, learn Visual Basic.NET hands-on, through thousands of lines of live code -- explained with exceptional clarity by the renowned programming trainers of Deitel & Associates! Visual Basic.NET How to Program starts by introducing the Visual Studio.NET development environment; then covers all key VB.NET programming fundamentals, from control structures to methods, arrays, and object-oriented programming. It delivers in-depth coverage of VB.NET GUI development; multithreading; graphics and multimedia; XML programming; database development with SQL and ADO.NET; building Web Forms and Web Services with ASP.NET; network programming; security; data structures; accessibility; and more. The book contains hundreds of real-world tips and techniques for writing high-quality code, improving performance and reliability, and efficient debugging. An accompanying CD-ROM contains all of the book's source code, up-to-date Visual Basic.NET development tools, plus links to the Web's best Visual Basic.NET demos and resources. For all beginning programmers -- and developers experienced with traditional languages -- who want to master Visual Basic.NET quickly.

This book covers so much ground it is hard to find any criticism. I did read the other reviewers and found that what was disliked the most was the bold font and things of that nature. Hey, I like the style, but that's me. I think my only criticism is always their first chapter in which it describes "What is a computer". But despite that chuckle, the book rocks, bottom line.

I am a professional software developer and I still read this book often. You can't go wrong with authors like David Sceppa (ADO.NET) or Francesco Balena (Visual Basic 2005: The Language) either, but never will you go wrong with Deitel.

It is that good.........
When I first got this book, I was impressed with all the code and the fancy layout. But around half-way through I realized the following:

1. A lot of the output was in something like DOS-boxes! Can you believe that. With such a powerful system as VB.NET, they're outputing to DOS-boxes!

2. The rest of the time output was to MessageBox.Show(), which is just a very simple standard IO dialog box. I finally got disgusted when the book got to geometric output and, instead of drawing circles, I was still just printing out the values of the radius and diameter in dialog boxes. I thought to myself "What the hell is the purpose of this? I'm not learning anything!"

3. I took a cursory examination of subsequent chapters and throughout the whole book the authors use those stinking MessageBox.Show() functions.

Now the book does cover a lot of territory, but I can't believe the authors couldn't do a better job. Keep searching-this book stinks.
Following the tradition of their earlier 'How To Program' books, this is a very comprehensive textbook which covers all the major areas of VB.Net.
While I don't think any one book (even a 1500+ page one such as this) is going to cover every aspect of this huge subject, it does cover all of the major areas. Most importantly, it covers them in some detail and uses the traditional teaching methods of explanation, example, repetition and reinforcement to do so.
What I have always liked abut the Deitel 'How To Program' range is that you are never left wondering how or why something has been done. Every step and just about every line of code is dissected and explained to you. There are many well-written programming books on the market, but too often you cannot find the clarification you desparately need on some vital point that you haven't quite grasped. With this book, the full answer is always there if you just take the time and effort to follow each step as it is described to you.
One small word of caution: If you are the kind of reader who likes to be jollied along with little jokey lines and clever puns in the section headings, then you will not find them here. This book doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is - a detailed primer that will teach you almost everything you need to know about VB.Net programming.
The summaries, reviews and - above all - the Index are comprehensive and clear. This is a painstaking work by good authors who have kept to traditional teaching methods to break down and explain a large and complex subject area.
With its clear explanations in the body text and its easy to use Index and Reference tools, I have found it to be the book I usually reach for first when I need to check up on something.
If you are new to VB.Net (and/or to programming in general) then you should seriously consider getting this book.
An excellent learning and reference tool! If you have a question, this book has the answer.
I signed up for a class at Berkeley that used this book. I dropped the class along with many other students because of the poor quality of this text book. There seems to be no logic order to the book. I purchased Beginning VN.Net and learn VB on my own. I feel I got cheated when I purchase this book! Who wrote all of these positive reviews?
I am experienced with `Top-Down' programing in Basic. When I finally bought Visual Basic.NET, I discovered that it was a whole different animal from what I was used to, and the Object oriented approach to programing is something I'm still having trouble getting my mind around. (Too many old habits to unlearn.) I needed a thorough book to guide me. That is what I have found in Visual Basic.NET How To Program (Second Edition) by Deitel.
The authors cover a tremendous amount of material. The topics and Visual Basic key words are presented at a swift pace, yet the authors cover each subject in depth. As a result, the book is thick, information dense, and a bit of a dry read.
Some of the more interesting features of Visual Basic wind up pushed off until deep in the book by the depth with which the fundamentals are covered. For example, Timers are not introduced until almost midway through the text, at roughly page 600. And while a simple type of page-flip animation is introduced in the later chapters, bit map graphics, collision detection, sprites, masks, and other game-oriented essentials are not covered at all. This is understandable considering the intent of this textbook. Arcade game programing is simply outside the scope of the book, and had they been included with the same depth, we would probably be looking at a $150 book of 3000 pages or more.
The best way to deal with an information dense book such as this one is to keep a highlighter and supply of blank index-tabs at hand. As each new key item is presented, make and place a tab, encyclopedia style in rows, along the edge. This allows you to instantly flip open to what ever topic you need to review as you study and work with your own programs. I have almost three full rows of tabs (70 in number) for the first 400 pages of the book alone.
There have only been two places in the book I struggled with due to lack of sufficient explanation. As an aid to anyone who plans to buy this book, I will include a couple footnotes at the end of this review to help you over those two areas.
Another very strong point for this book is that the example codes are current and compatible with the latest version of .NET. Many supposedly `.NET' texts were written using beta versions of .NET, and as a result are often not fully compatible. There is nothing more frustrating then trying an example code only to have it blow up because the author used a VB 6.0 command which is no longer supported. The Deitel book does not suffer from this problem.
So, 5 Stars! And if Deitel ever decides to write a book on .NET graphics, I'll be first in line to buy one, even at $70 a copy. This leads me to my one real gripe, which is not associated with the content of the book itself.
My gripe is that I paied a LOT of money for a 1500 page paperback. The book itself is worth the price, but this is a book which deserves a hard cover; especially considering the fine quality of the paper, the colored texts, the cost, and the information dense content. It is a book I will return to again and again, so it pains me to see the edges of the paper covers starting to show foxing and wear in spite of my best efforts to protect them. This is a university textbook after all, worthy of any library, so why not put a hardcover on it??
** FootNotes **
Note: Page 65 &67, Changing the name of a module:
In Visual Basic.NET 2003 there is a third step you must take to change the name of a module or the build will fail and you will get the error message "Sub Main() not found in module...."
The error is the result of a broken link. The compiler winds up looking for a module with the old name and fails to find it because a module with that name no longer exists.
After changing the Program file name and the module name as instructed on pages 65 and 67, you must also change an application property to fix the broken link.
Step 3 then, is to click on the console application name in the Solution Explorer window, and then click on the `Properties' icon at the top of the window. (The Properties icon is the small button on the far right, at the top of the Solution Explorer window.)
The `Properties' window will open. Look for the field labeled, `Startup Object'. You will see that it still contains the old module name. Change the name to your new module name and click the [OK] button. This will fix the broken link and the name change is complete.

Note: Page 188 Creating the GUI interface for the example code.
The procedure could have been better explained. Here is what you need to do:
1. Start a new project. (Windows App.)
2. Use the tool box to build the GUI interface.
(Add Textboxes, Labels and Buttons to match the book illustration.
3. Change the names of all components to those used in the book, using the properties window.
4. Double click on the `Maximum' button on the Form, and add only lines 29-43 from page 191 of the book. (The rest of the code you see in the book is added by Visual Basic.NET and is normally hidden from view.)
5. Build and run.
