Check out these VB Books!

This is the second "class" for programming classes for VB. If you have never programmed before, you should start with Step 1. I recommend the Murach VB book for these lessons as well. You can check it out here.

I have placed the demonstration projects and other materials on this page for you. Click on the presentation you want to review. To download a project, click on the item here and Windows will ask where to save your file.
