Comments about oreilly VB.NET Language Pocket Reference:

It really looks at this book it pleased my more experienced pupil of programming in vb.net and said that the people to read a book of these already have that to have in mind the Guided programming Objects and to know the concepts of net.

The book is serving pair that it if prepares for a future course of games in vb.net...

Good info marred by terrible organization

Comments about oreilly VB.NET Language Pocket Reference:

I have to agree with Doug. Grouping entries by type is like a dictionary that groups definitions by part of speech.Best Case It becomes tedious to find entries when it is clear which category they belong to, since you first have to locate the category, then the entry within that group.Worst Case When it is unclear what category an entry appears in, each potential category must be located, then searched for the entry.

The entries in this book may be OK, but the organization is so frustrating that the quality of the content frequently doesn't matter.

VB.NET Language Pocket Reference Review

By Doug Domeny

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly VB.NET Language Pocket Reference:

O'Reilly Customer Service was very responsive to my previous negative readers review. I was treated very fairly. It's nice to know the O'Reilly stands behind their books.

I do recommend "C# and VB.NET Conversion Pocket Reference". See my reader review of that book for details.

VB.NET Language Pocket Reference Review

By Doug Domeny

from Undisclosed

Comments about oreilly VB.NET Language Pocket Reference:

I'm a fan of O'Reilly reference books. I have a large assortment of their Pocket Reference books. Usually they are great because they condense the really important information into a format I can easily read on my desk and carry from place to place. Given the usual quality of the books, I recently bought this book by just looking at the title. I'm moving to VB.NET and I thought it would help. BUT...

VB.NET Language Pocket Reference IS USELESS and a WASTE OF MONEY.

Here's a list of complaints:



Table of contents (TOC) is mostly one level deep (not helpful)

TOC sections like "Information" and "Interaction" are not helpful

Reference section of the book is NOT ALPHABETICAL

Organized by category, but category name does not appear in the page header

Probably incomplete--I couldn't find anything on "Delegates"

No index, which is really needed because I cannot find anything



I wish I could get my money back.
