    Serge, Megatron, Aaron, and most others at the VBWorld forums.
    Karl Moore and others comtributing to the VB-World tutorals
    VBWeb
    VBExplorer
    MSDN Library
    VBA For MSOffice
    Visual Basic Unleashed
    Dan Appman's Guide to the VB6 API (or something like that)
    VBAPI.com

    etc.

    BAD SOURCES:

    You have the MSDN library listed as both good and bad...lol... Did you mean it like that? That's how I feel about it.

    I read some books about it I got from the library. I bought Mastering Visual Basic 6, a real cool book. And Visual Basic Graphics programming, it covers things from picture processing to ray tracing. The last book is a book about a specific subject. Mastering Visual Basic is a book that covers a lot about vb, I learned a lot of it.

    I think he meant that the one you get with VB or VS is good, but the one online blows. I hate the one online, it's too slow on my 56k, and it's just not very fun to use.

    Exactly.

    Also, if you're a beginner, start off with the Step-by-step or the Learning Series and slowly progress on. There are different cources you could take after learning the basics:

    Database Programming
    IIS and DHTML Internet Programming
    API Interface
    Advanced Visual Basic
    DirectX and 3D Programming
    Graphics Manipulation
    Professional Design

    He was naming some of the older "Gurus." There are plenty of people who can answer questions on this forum. There is no reason to try and name all of them.
