Visual Basic 6 is a GUI based object-oriented programming language.
You can develop software with visual basic much faster than other programming languages. Visual basic follow the rapid application model also known as RAD model.
Doing projects is a great way to learn visual basic programming. A visual basic project not only gives you an idea about software development, but also teaches you project planning and process involved in finishing the project successfully.
To take maximize your learning, you must complete these prerequisites because visual basic seems to be an easy programming language, but it is not.
- VB 6 Tutorial – you must be familiar with VB IDE and coding practices before creating your first project. You can do this in two ways – one, visit our VB tutorial page or read a visual programming book.
- VB 6 IDE – install visual basic 6 software to create your project. Read the Visual basic 6.0 installation guide.
- Microsoft Access – this is necessary for connecting your project to a data source, only if its a project requirement. For some projects you can use Microsoft Excel or SQL as the data sources.

Whether you are a student or self-learner, it is hard to learn programming without a good book. I recommend few good books here which has detailed information about Visual Basic 6.0 programming. It is also necessary because Microsoft has stopped supporting Visual basic 6; now they have more advanced version of visual basic in the form of VB.Net and other versions. However, the language of modern visual basic is more or less the same.
