I want to learn C++ and Visual Studio .NET (C# and ASP.NET). I know what programming is, I once did some programmers in DOS Basic and COBOL, but I am totally lost on where to begin. I read "Beginner's Programming" by Greg Perry. I go to the bookstore and feel like an IDIOT...where do I begin - what book do I read - the Microsoft (thousands of dollars - three-five day instructed led classes are over my head and my budget. Where so I start\n\nI want to learn programming, I want to be MCSD certified in the end, not for money reasons but for knowledge. Please please all gurus willing to help - lead me out of the path of confusion and show me the path to enlightment!
