This practical guide aims to be a complete programming guide as well as a reference for the serious ASP programmer.

You don't have the time to rummage through 1000-page thick books? You don't have the time to sift through jokes & wisecracks? This is the right resource for you ...

This guide does not assume any prior knowledge of ASP, and starts from the ground up. The chapters are organized according to the increasing complexity of ASP scripts that you will be writing. Simple scripts come first, and then the techniques needed for more complex scripts are covered. This is especially useful for the beginner who is usually inundated by long, boring technical dissertations in the first chapter of any book.

Experienced programmers will also find this guide useful, for it contains the following references in one easy-to-locate booklet.

  • VBScript Reference

    A complete documentation of all VBScript functions with the necessary information for using them. Ideal for those situations where you know what you want to do, but can't remember the function that will do it for you.

  • SQL Reference

    This includes complete syntactic specifications of the Structured Query Language, along with examples to demonstrate the use.

  • ADO Reference

    A guide on ASP cannot miss out this quintessential section. It gives complete details on most of the objects in the ADO hierarchy.

Since you can download the PDF, you don't need to be online in order to read it. A printer-friendly publication format means you can print it and read it anywhere.

For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
