VB.Net beginner - looking for a place to start

Posted 27 April 2011 - 02:26 PM

I am working on updating my skills and knowledge.
I want to get VB.Net for my computer, and an educational resource (i.e. book) without paying a whole lot of money.

Any suggestions on where to start?

Visual Studios Express is free from Microsoft's site. So that's that. VB or C# your choice. The same with MSSQL.

Books - well there are plenty of tutorials here, but if you want an end to end I would highly recommend buying a book.

Check out Microsoft Dreamspark Software, as well as the DIC VB.NET Tutorials Section.
