Operators, Expressions and Statements - 07
In this lesson we discuss how to create a properly formed statement in Visual Basic. As you'll learn, just as there are "parts of speech" in a properly formed sentence in the English language, there's a "right way" and a "wrong way" to write "complete thoughts" in Visual Basic. We discuss how statements are made up of expressions, and expressions are made up of operators (think: verbs) and operands (think: nouns). Finally, we talk about compilation errors that occur because we ignore the syntax rules of Visual Basic.
