What you need to know before starting this Visual Basic training

If you are new to computer programming, you should consider Visual Basic as your language of choice for learning how to develop computer programs. Another popular language used in teaching programming is Pascal. But Visual Basic is generally more popular than Pascal. Microsoft claims that there are over 3 million Visual Basic programmers. Whatever the number, Visual Basic is popular because it is easy to learn, fun to use, and has evolved into a very powerful development tool. But programming in Visual Basic or any other programming language is a challenging task. It is a little more complicated than learning how to use Microsoft Word or Excel. But if you want to become a computer programmer, you will find Visual Basic to be the easiest way to teach yourself programming. You can get the Visual Basic training series (above) that includes the complete set of 17 Multimedia CD-ROMs or Videos.

You will hear and see your trainer on your computer screen as he teaches you beginner to advanced level Visual Basic concepts. But most of the time, you will learn Visual Basic by seeing your trainer perform real world examples with Visual Basic 6 and by writing the example programs or your own programs and running them with the Visual Basic 6 software included in this package. The best way to learn Visual Basic is by examples, and that is what this course presents a lot of. If you are new to Visual Basic, you should start with the first 8 levels (i.e. Level 1 to Level 8). Then later as you build your skills, you can purchase the rest of the training if you want to become an advanced level Visual Basic Developer. If you spend about 1 to 2 hours each day training with Visual Basic, you should become proficient in about 3 months. The rule to becoming a good or competent programmer is practice, practice, practice! If you want tips on how to become more productive with Visual Basic very quickly, especially if you are new to programming, please do not hesitate to contact us toll free at 1-888-797-4040 (or 301-589-3349) and a technical support person with development experience will assist you. Remember, the best programmers are those who enjoy programming; so just relax and program for fun and treat programming as a hobby. You will be amazed at the progress you will make and success you will have as a developer.
