I personaly would recommend getting an ASP book, which will teach you the two in one kind of way, its unbelievable how close ASP scripts actually come to writing proper VB Apps.
Then I suggest you hang around places like planet source code ( pscode.com ) and get some sample apps there, just make something simple and then get different code from different people and youll pick up the basics within a couple of weeks. Some words of encouragment would be that VB is amazingly simple to code, I was amazed at how easy it is to actually code VB once you get past the basics youll soon find that its possible to do a lot of things in a very short amount of time, hence its a RAD language (Rapid Application Developement).
Well thats my suggestion as the way I started was like what I wrote up there.
And on top of that you have what I would say is a fairly good team of frequent developers that can help you out here on the board.
Heh well there goes my advice!
