Learning to Program in VB

A zero to hero approach for GCSE and beyond

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 in a free pack downloadable pack.

  • I am sooo pleased that we invested in the PG sample papers. The structure was spot on for the real paper, and therefore a big help for exam technique and students not having any nasty surprises.  

    Revision book excellent as a single volume source too. Both helped me structure the revision for the students easily.

  • I have found PG Online resources not only time saving, but also comprehensive – following the specification of the GCSE and A-Level courses that I teach. They are engaging for students and with the added bonus of homework’s and end of unit assessments planned out. The textbooks are also the perfect companion. I cannot recommend PG Online resources enough.
