"I enjoyed Kid Games with Visual Basic Express. I really liked the step by step method. It was easy to understand and my students really enjoyed the examples, which all made a dry subject matter a fun and creative class. I also liked the format, as I can teach on my iPad. I'll be back for more next year." - Claudio Faenza, Teacher, Gainesville, FL
