Recommended Books to learn Labview?

I want to write a Labview program that controls an HP 4277A LCZ
meter over an HPIB from a PC. It is a simple program, and I'd like
to put off the NI Labview classes because I'm just too busy right
now.

The program should be very simple. It will let the user enter a
voltage range, then tell the HP4277A to output each voltage
looping through the voltage range. At each voltage point it will
wait for things to settle, take capacitance and conductance
readings of the DUT, store these values in arrays. When the loop
is completed, it will graph the C vs V, Cond. vs. V, and so ther
result of some math on the C vs. V curve, and store the array data
to a disk file.

Can anyone recommend books that would help me pick up Labvie
w
programming? I have 5 yrs. VB experience.

Thanks,
Mike

I went to bn.com and searched for LabVIEW and found thirteen
books. I'd highly recommend the ones from Gary Johnson, but
the others may suit you also.

Greg,

Thanks, just what I was looking for.

Question:

How well do these books apply to LabView 5.1? That is the version I have
.... I am an experienced programmer (C++, VB) but a LabView 'newbie', and
have a few 'version specific' books on my shelf that become obsolete as the
next language revision comes out.

Thanks,

Mike

Hallo, Mike,

Du meintest am 15.01.00 zum Thema Recommended Books to learn Labview?:

For beginners I recommend Liza Wells (Prentice Hall). Very nice to read,
very nice to learn.
I don't know which version of LabView she uses.

Viele Gruesse!

The one I started with is good "Learning with Labview" by Richard
Bishop. Mine included a students version of LabVIEW that was fully
functional. It's a good and inexpensive way to learn LabVIEW. It's
well written, easy to read and fairly detailed.
