    Depends on you and how well you retain information. Memorize what you can and keep tools around that can help you. We cant really tell you that.

    yes and make sure you are good at c++ and knwo the basics before starting win 32. win 32 can get confusing fast! I have started to learn a little of it btu I quit and I got into some c# instead. c# is like c++ from scratch but a little easier if you know c++. But I would check into first and see if you want to learn it right now, unless of course you are good at c++ already.

    Ive been programming in Win32 for a long time now, and I still have to consult MSDN all the time. You wont be able to memorize a fraction of the functions you will need, so don't bother trying. What you need to learn is how to look up what function you need in the MSDN library.

    i just need to know enough WIN 32 to start OpenGL, so all you realy need to know is how it works and how to change and add stuff?

    I recommend you check out this site if you want to learn OpenGL with Win32: http://nehe.gamedev.net/

    If you don't want to stay on the web to read it, you can go down to the section marked "Resources" and download them all.
