One advice, stay away from those books that say it'll teach you that stuff in 24hours or 40days or w/e. I heard it's bs. Go to a nearby university and see what texts they use, universities use good books.. for the most part anyway. (make sure it's a intro level class book, don't pick up a upper division class book)

Forget Visual Basics. Start from the middle and wriggle yourself the way up. If you have a knack for programming, you'll understand C++ from the beginning.

those learn in 24 hour books are actually ok , you don't learn it in 24 hours but it does give enough info to get started.

Visual basic is a great language to begin with I started that at first. Your best bet is online guides:

gaming VB tutorial:
Visual Basic Tutorial

beginner VB tutorial:
Visual Basic Tutorial

guides for beginners, intermediate and advanced:
http://www.garybeene.com/vb/tutor.htm

beginner:
Free Visual Basic 6.0 tutorial - Lesson 1

VB command descriptions:
Visual Basic Command Descriptions

vb beginners guide, variables commands and arrays:
Alpha - Beginners Guide to Visual Basic
Visual Basic Tutorial - Variables
Alpha - Visual Basic Tutorial - Basic Commands
Alpha - Visual Basic Tutorial - Arrays

Good luck!
