GBIC >> VB >> Tutorials
I hope you'll find that these tutorials provide you with a good foundation on which to learn even more about VB! I also provide several sample applications which implement many of the features that are discussed in my tutorial sections. Feel free to download the entire tutorial for offline viewing. In case you don't know, there are several VB books which come with a Working Model of VB6 which has several limitations but is a reasonable way to evaluate VB without spending a lot of money. Finally, be sure to read the VB FAQs, which I didn't write but have provided here for completeness.

Offline Tutorial Reading

    I don't offer a zip file with all of my tutorial materials in it, but if you want to download the entire tutorial for offline reading then I suggest you use one of the two freeware applications - WinHTrack or WebReaper.
