I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Not to be offensive...but the API is usually beyond the dummy
level.  I couldn't see how it could fit into the dummy format
and still be useful.

A good book...with C examples...but also with great descriptions
of the functions themsevles...an invaluable reference...is:

  "The Win32 API Bible, Book One" by The Waite Group Press.

The book gives a quite a few visual examples too.
