Resources for Rod Stephens’ Visual Basic Programming 24-Hour Trainer

I had previously reviewed Rod Stephens’ Visual Basic Programming 24-Hour Trainer. As part of that review, I had mentioned that Rod provides videos as one of the training methods. These videos add an element not found in most books—a real human talking with you about a particular technique.

For at least some people, the video is probably the most important addition to the learning environment because they actually learn better by watching someone else perform the task. Computer books now have the equivalent of cooking or woodworking shows on television. The popularity of these shows tells just how much people like them and you’ll like Rod’s videos quite a bit.

Fortunately, you don’t have to take my word for it, which is the purpose of this post. Rod has graciously made a number of these videos available online. As long as you can access YouTube, you can see the videos. Here’s the links:

 

Give these links a try to determine whether the video method works well for you. If you have any questions about the videos, you can direct them to Rod at http://lists.topica.com/lists/VBHelperQA. Make sure you check out Rod’s main Web site at http://www.vb-helper.com/ for additional resources. Normally, I won’t revisit a review, but in this case, I thought the additional information helpful and chose to share it with you.
