    EHU - it depends what you are wanting to develop for. They usually produce three version - small, medium and large. Unless you are doing corporate applications, the medium is probably sufficient for you.

    You also need to consider whether you can get away with simply buying VB, or whether you need the Visual Studio tools for cross-tool development. Of course, this makes the price rather more astronomic, which is why you need to know what your intentions are before buying.

    except I'd probably consider moving to VB.NET in any case now... but yeah if you can get hold of a student edition that isn't a bad idea (academic version of Visual Studio.NET is basically the professional version with a few extra studenty things thrown in for example) cos it's reasonably cheap (compared to the 'proper' editions anyhoo)

    They usually come with programming book...

    I highly suggest Visual Basic 6.0 by Diane Zak.. That book is very good and have the student edition. But you shold check Visual Basic .Net by Diane Zek also! Probablly very good also and PROBABLY t a student version of Visual Basic .NEt

    good Luck!

    The student copies that come with the books are full copies EXCEPT they do not allow you to create an executable. Although, in most technical colleges, they allow you to get an educational liscence for a full copy if you attend that course. The only two things about an educational liscence that differ from the full professional are A. you must sign an agreement not to make money off of any of the programs you write and B. you cannot update the MSDN (microsoft software developers network) or help files.
