"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, that way I can teach on my iPad. I'll be back for more next year." - Claudio Faenza, Teacher, Gainesville, FL
"I was looking for some Visual Basic Express ideas and these books appeared to be just what I needed. I bought both Visual Basic books...great ideas and easy to read."
