    I started programming about 27 years ago when I was 7 and didn't have a computer. I'd get books out from the library and write programs on pieces of paper. When I finally had my own real computer (Commodore 64) I was in heaven.

    I carried on borrowing books but now I could write them much easier and even test them out. Now the internet is here you have access to much more material to help you get started than I ever did. There are forums aimed at VB you can join for free where you can post questions and get answers. Borrowing a decent book or even buying one I still wouldn't rule out. It all depends on how serious you are of learning VB. Give the forums a go and if you still feel enthusiastic a few weeks/months later then a decent book wouldn't go amiss even if it/they're just small pocket reference books.

    I only own two programming books - one for MySQL and a small reference book for CSS and both are actually for web design.

    I'd love to be able to recommend a good forum for VB but not having got serious enough into it I no longer have any bookmarks but I'm sure someone can help with a couple.
