I would say no. I would study up on OOP practices and the .NET
Framework instead.

Hi Adrew,

Some free practises the first only when you have VB.net or VS.net

And when it is for studying you can maybe go for the new Express Beta's

VB.net Resource kit
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/vbrkit/default.aspx

And if you have problems installing the resource kit
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/vbr...q/#installvdir

Another resource for learning is the Quick Starts
http://samples.gotdotnet.com/quickstart/

Visual Basic 2005 Express (Beta):
http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...d1/vbsetup.exe

I hope this helps a little bit?

No. Start with VB.NET directly.

If you want to take a quick look at Visual Basic, I currently would
install the Express beta and play around with it:

<URL:http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/express/vbasic/>

Alternatively, you can order the trial version of VS.NET:

<URL:http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/productinfo/trial/>

General information about VB can be found here:

<URL:http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/>

For beginners' tasks, VB at the Movies may be helpful:

<URL:http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/atthemovies/>

The Visual Basic .NET Resource Kit contains a test version of VS.NET,
some free components and a lot of training material:

<URL:http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/vbrkit/>

Quickstarts on various topics of the .NET Framework can be found here:

<URL:http://samples.gotdotnet.com/quickstart/>

For VB6 programmers, there are separate documents about the switch to
VB.NET:

VB.NET for VB Veterans

As an addition to all the excellent suggestions already given, take a look
at www.learnvisualstudio.net

For just $30 you can download over 350 video tutorials about different
aspects of Visual Studio, VB.Net and more. I have no connection to this
company other than being a satisfied user of their videos when I need to get
up and running quickly.
