    Hi. I am a Second Year Computer Engg student, who has a pretty good background in C/C++ programming, but otherwise, programming illiterate.

    Anyways, I wanted to update myself by learning VB. So, here are a couple of questions to which I need some answers :

    1. I hav got VB.NET, infact I hav got the entire .NET Framework software (whereas I don't have a VB 6.0 IDE). I also know that conventional VB & VB.NET are revolutionary different. If so, is it necessary to learn conventional VB before VB.NET?? Suppose I learn VB, then would it be easier/difficult to adapt to VB.NET?? Also, what does today's programmer rely upon - Good old VB or VB.NET?? And for a beginner, which is easier??


    2. Also, could u recommend some books for learning/beginning/mastering VB & VB.NET
    Also, Please recommend some E-book-sites from which I can get a soft-copy of the
    books.


    3. Also, what's the difference between VB & VBScript?? (I know that VBScript is nothing but VB embedded in an HTML page along with a Web document, but some more details on this would be welcome)


    Any information on the above will be very much appreciated.

    Ciao,
    Rajiv :)

    Here I go

    No
    If you know C++ VB will be just like a piece of cake.
    [thread=21]VB Resources[/thread]
    VBScript is MS stretch towards competing with JavaScript but even the MS sites have JavaScript and Not VBScript.

    I would suggest instead of going through VB 6 - VB.NET path go for C# path in .NET as you have some basics about C domain under your grasp and learning VB is just matter of hours.

    I learned vb.net before pascal. Hell its easy. Pascal is hell.
    Can I say vb.net is new, VB is older and outdated?
