The goal of Visual Basic for Testers is to teach the reader how to use Visual Basic to increase their level of sophistication as a tester. They will learn for example how to use VB to write an automated testing project. Along the way, Sweeney shows them what to look for in a well-written VB program. This will help them gain the experience necessary to both use Visual Basic to support an automated test project as well as to test a commercial application written in Visual Basic. Since testers often want to move to development tracks, the fact that readers will also learn a lot about good programming and the issues involved in maintenance and debugging is a big plus.
