Week #3
Week of September 21st
I know these first two review assignments are really time consuming so this is a catch up week.
Week #2
Week of September 14th
Move on and read chapters 6 and 7.
I want you to write an program to validate a form with a variety of data. Include the different methods discussed in chapter 7. Include procedures and functions in the program.
Week #1
Week of September 7th
You can use any of the later versions of VB, but since the book is about 2015 that is probably your best bet.
We are using the text book Murach's Visual Basic 2015. I am not totally happy with it so we will do some supplementing! The chapters are a mixture of informtion we have covered and new information or at least information that I believe needs another look, so we will start at the beginning and skim through the first few chapters.
To that end please skim/read the first 5 chapters. Under programs (VB2015 for Murach text) at my site you will see some examples (that go with the 2012 version) I did of things I thought needed to be looked at more closely. Please go over those programs carefully - they supplement the examples in the text. You should also go to and look for Visual Basic examples (They had them for 2012 and they have them for 2015).
Write a review assignment that includes: functions, two dimension array, parallel array with the key other than sequential numbers, structures, multiple forms and modules.
