Computing Projects In Visual Basic .NET has been written mainly for students of 'AS' / 'A' level Computing, 'A' level ICT and Advanced VCE ICT. The book assumes no knowledge of programming and covers everything needed to write a large program. Students on other courses of a similar standard, such as BTEC National, and first year HND and degree courses, should also find the material useful.
For AS/A level Computing - depending on the Examining Board computing students may need to produce a small project or write a number of programs for the 'AS' part of the course. For 'A' level a substantial piece of programming may be needed. The theory part of the course covers a number of important programming concepts, which are far better learned through practical programming than only through the pages of a textbook. Visual Basic is an excellent, modern language through which to learn these concepts.
For AVCE students - an optional unit on programming using an event-driven language such as Visual Basic is offered by all the Boards. One of the Boards offers two units. Although the amount of programming is not expected to be as much as an A level student of Computing would do, it is still substantial.
The object oriented approach to programming is explained and used where applicable.
