Learn Visual Basic 6.0

Installing Learn Visual Basic 6.0:
The course notes and code for Learn Visual Basic 6.0 are included in two ZIP
files (LVB61.ZIP and LVB62.ZIP) on separate disks. Use your favorite
‘unzipping’ application to write all files to your computer. After unzipping, the
course is included in the folder entitled LearnVB6. This folder contains two other
folders: VB Notes and VB Code.
The VB Notes folder includes all the notes needed for the class. Each file in this
folder has a DOC extension and is in Word for Windows 95 format. The files are:
Start Here.doc This file in Word format

How To Take the Course:
Learn Visual Basic 6.0 is a self-paced course. The suggested approach is to do
one class a week for ten weeks. Each week’s class should require about 4 to 8
hours of your time to grasp the concepts completely. Prior to doing a particular
week’s work, open the class notes file for that week and print it out. Then, work
through the notes at your own pace. Try to do each example as they are
encountered in the notes. If you need any help, all solved examples are included
in the VB Code folder. After completing each week’s notes, a homework
exercise is given, covering many of the topics taught that week. Like the
examples, try to work through the homework exercise, or some variation thereof,
on your own. Refer to the completed project in the VB Code folder, if necessary.
