BEGINNING VISUAL BASIC EXPRESS FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS – 2010 EDITION is a semester long self-study “beginning” programming tutorial consisting of 10 Chapters (Table of Contents) explaining (in simple, easy-to-follow terms) how to build a Visual Basic Express Windows application. Students learn about project design, the Visual Basic Express toolbox, and many elements of the BASIC language. Numerous examples are used to demonstrate every step in the building process. The tutorial also includes several detailed computer projects for students to build and try.
These projects include a number guessing game, card game, allowance calculator, drawing program, state capitals game, and a couple of video games like Pong. With the 2010 edition, we now include several college prep bonus projects including a loan calculator, portfolio manager, and checkbook balancer (Project Screen Shots).
For some after-school fun we have also added several classic David Ahl Basic Computer Games which have been updated to new multi-media Visual Basic Express Computer Games: Mugwump, Even-Wins, Acey-Ducey and Lunar Lander.
BEGINNING VISUAL BASIC EXPRESS FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS is presented using a combination of over 400 pages of course notes and actual Visual Basic Express examples. No prior programming experience is necessary, but familiarity with doing common tasks using Microsoft Windows is expected.
The course requires either Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8, ability to view and print documents saved in Microsoft Word format, and Visual Basic 2010 Express. The course can also be completed using Visual Basic 2010 Professional Edition. The newer 2012 Edition of this tutorial for Windows 7/8 and Visual Basic 2012 Express can be found here.
