If you want to learn the fundamentals of programming, don't get bogged down with pages of technical jargon that most books on the market offer! Instead, explore Clearly Visual Basic: Programming with Visual Basic 2008, an innovative book that prides itself on teaching the basics of programming through visualization and application. Designed for beginners with little or no previous programming experience, this resource emphasizes solid programming principles and teaches the Visual Basic language in the process. By putting standard concepts, like input, output, selection, and repetition, at the forefront, instead of focusing solely on a specific language, readers will gain knowledge and insight that is easily transferable to other languages.

It's a good, thorough, and simplistic book. The people in my class had trouble dealing with programming concepts. Personally I think the book lays it all out in a logical, easy to understand fashion.

It's a good introduction to programming. Out of all of my college textbooks this is the one I found most enjoyable. I'd recommend it.
I have only done 5 chapters so far. What I have discovered is to this point the book is very informative. It walks you through step by step. Being a true beginner that was important to me. I might be boring to someone who has some knowledge of VB. The really cool part so far is that you also get video demos to look at, so you can see the written text actually put to practical work. Every textbook should have this feature!!!!! On a scale of 1 to 10 so far I would give it an 8. Always room for improvement.
This book covers programming from the basics of no knowledge of programming and builds up to a very well-structured teaching method for the basics of programming. Using the knowledge obtained from this book can greatly help with future programming languages and furthering knowledge in Visual Basic.
