Microsoft® Visual Basic® Programs to Accompany Programming Logic
and Design, Sixth Edition (also known as, VB PAL) is designed to
provide students with an opportunity to write Visual Basic programs
as part of an Introductory Programming Logic course. It is written to
be a companion text to the student’s primary text, Programming Logic
and Design, Sixth Edition, by Joyce Farrell. Th is textbook assumes
no programming language experience and provides the beginning
programmer with a guide to writing structured programs and simple
object-oriented programs using introductory elements of the popular
Visual Basic programming language. It is not intended to be a textbook
for a course in Visual Basic programming. Th e writing is nontechnical
and emphasizes good programming practices. Th e examples
do not assume mathematical background beyond high school math.
Additionally, the examples illustrate one or two major points; they
do not contain so many features that students become lost following
irrelevant and extraneous details.
The examples in VB PAL, Sixth Edition are often examples presented
in the primary textbook, Programming Logic and Design, Sixth
Edition. Th e following table shows the correlation between topics in
the two books.
The Visual Basic PAL is designed to be paired with the Sixth Edition of Joyce Farrell's Programming Logic and Design text. Together, the two books provide the perfect opportunity to learn the fundamentals of programming while gaining exposure to an actual programming language. Readers can discover how real Visual Basic code behaves within the context of the traditional language-independent logic and design course.

how about How to Do Everything with Algebra? The obvious question is:
How do you know when you can do everything with any of the above?
HTML is a language, and there...
