Learning VB - To Net or Not To Net

Last Modified: 2013-11-25
My only experience in VB is my development of an Access Database at my workplace over the last four years.  Although I do not code in it much, I find the whole developing process very fufilling and facinating and I think it's time to dive in.

My goal is a MCSD certification in VB.  I want to program professionally eventually or at least step into Information Systems.  I am not wealthy and cannot afford these boot camps or 30 CD sets.

I need to learn VB code and don't know whether to begin with VB6 or VB.Net.  I have heard it both ways.

I do not have a copy of VB (any version) either.  I am wondering, depending on the best approach to my goals, if a student version of VB Studio.Net would be sufficient.  I think I saw it online for a little over $100.  I have read that VB.Net Standard does not contain what is needed to follow along in most books for learning it.

Any good resources that you know of that may be most useful for someone like me?
