I have time = 0 experience with .NET C# 5.0 Visual Studio, Visual programming. I have a Windows 7 machine! I have (courtesy full-time enrollment at my local university) Visual Studio Professional 2012.
I am ready to begin my journey but I do not know much about .NET 4.5, nothing about C# 5.0, and little about Visual Studio or Visual programming.
For a noob like me, where do I begin to conquer the vast knowledge of .NET and C#? I considered purchasing Pro C# 5.0 and the .NET 4.5 Framework (Professional Apress) but I hesitate because right now all I see is the forest... I am clueless!
Please guide me and help direct me.
