The Special Edition Using Visual Basic 5, Second Edition takes a tutorial approach. It is assumed that the reader is new to Visual Basic. The book teaches programming with Visual Basic in a steady, consistent pace. Once the reader has been taught the Visual Basic programming language, the book will progress into more advanced topics. Such hot topics include an overview of COM, creating ActiveX controls, using Visual Basic with Active Server Pages, and more.

With this book, readers will: learn Visual Basicr's development environment; write powerful, full-featured database applications; add interactivity to your Web site; upgrade your existing Visual Basic applications; build complex Windowsr 95 and Windows NTt, 32-bit applications; master optimization techniques using the Windows API, forms, and controls; create multitier client/ server applications; create Advanced Class modules to simplify the Win32 API; and use Advanced Win32 Callbacks in pure VB (new feature for VB5).

I've been reading VB books throughout the libraries, but, the Special Edition's publication is the most educative and comprehensive material. I strongly recommend to get this book for all levels. Thanks to Amazon.Com which makes it possible for thirsty programmers to access 'hard-to-find' collections--online.!
I agree this book is not for the beginner. It does do a good job of explaining the basics of VB if you are patient enough to use it in conjunction with a free tutorial from one of the many VB sites on the web. But, the examples skip around, and they do not build continuity with each other.
The coverage on DAO is pretty decent. However, with the release of VB6, this book is pretty dated with regard to ADO, WebClasses,etc. I wouldn't buy this book if you are only going to have 1 VB book. However, if you can pick it as a discounted remainder as I did, it's all right.
The mistakes in the programs annoyed me enough to write the publisher. That was about two months ago, I have yet to receive a reply. This book was definately rushed out the door. The ActiveX section was worthless. The typos, lack of clear directions and lack of response from the publisher make this book one to skip. On an up note, I'm now using the Visul Basic 5 Certification Exam Guide(McGraw Hill) and find it excellent. I'm sure they have it here.
I feel a little bit funny about this book : If you never seen VB in your life, it's a great source of information, with lots of examples and tips. On the other hand, it has so many errors and misprints, that if you're not an expert VB programmer, you might learn things wrong. I had the clear impression of handling a beta-version of the book. The fact that you have to download all the chapter's demos and samples from the book's website doesn't help much either.
This is a very good beginner's book. It's only pit fall is the fact that it doesn't come with a CD-ROM with examples (you have to download them from QUE's website), that tast of "I thought it would write some more" at the end of the chapters. A shallow book for an acomplished/advanced user point of view.
Being new to visual basic, I found this book to provide a very complete foundation in both the language and its application. No book is perfect, these subjects are just too complex and everyone learns in a different way. Overall, I recommend this book as a good starting point.
I have a library full of self-proclaimed "beginners guide" but NONE come close to this books indepth review and easy explainations. The book explains why and how on almost every subject concerning VB. GREAT BOOK!! GOOD JOB!
I am still in the process of reading this book. It has a nice style. I find that it jumps around from topic to topic a bit, so there are some gaps. Of course it is impossible to expect any one book to provide all the answers. I always try and get my hands on several to get a more complete picture. Overall I would rate this book as just above average. I do appreciate the focus on the Jet engine and relational databases. It is quite intensive.
