A note about the course:
The prerequisite for this course is Principles of Computer Programming (COP 1000).

A note about the book:
Students are sometimes concerned about the title of the book, "Advanced Visual Basic 2010". The authors have two Visual Basic books:
  • "Starting Out with Visual Basic 2010"
  • "Advanced Visual Basic 2010"
The content of the second book actually coincides with the contents of our intermediate course: Visual Basic Programming - COP 1332.
