Default Second Edition progress report

I have finished the second edition of the book and it is scheduled for release on Nov. 6. Amazon has some pre-release info on the book. As mentioned before, the book is much the same as before, but everything is upgraded for Visual Studio 2012. Also, the database chapters have a major overhaul as the Access Jet Engine is no longer a part of Visual Studio. Microsoft's SQL Server Express is used for the DB code. There's also a new chapter on threading and also how to print from your programs. There's also a quick intro to Web programming, too. If any of you teach programming classes, there is also an instructors pack which I wrote, too.

Again, many of you may wonder if you should buy this version of the book. While I would love to have you do that, if the earlier version made sense to you, you don't need this version. (It does have a much better looking cover, however...my picture is gone!) While this version does aim more directly at OOP, my approach remains the same.

BTW, many of you wrote in with questions and suggestions here and I've read every one of them, and answered most of them. I do believe what I read here did improve this new edition.

Thanks to all!
