Hands On DarkBASIC Pro – Volume 1 – GameCreators Forum

I have gone through every book out there to use to teach young people how to use DarkBASIC and this is by far the best one out there. It actually starts with teaching you hansd to think about programming. It has many examples and exercises. It looks like it took many years to develop the material and compile an approach that works to really instruct a newbie on what programming is all about. I have been discouraged by many books that claim to teach the beginner and then run through all the important coding concepts before they present programs esp.

The worse ones are those that offer little to no explanation of the darkbaasic.

It is as if they expect young programmers to type it in and magically all is somehow explained. This book is not one of those books. You can learn either on your own or in classroom environment. The only negative thing I can say about this book is that I had to order it from abroad and hence the price was rather steep.
