Learning VB 5.0

Question:
I'm very interested in learning VB for windows. im thinking about getting the professional edition upgrade, but $150 is pretty expensive for me right now. is the learning edition going to limit me as far as the depth of programming i will be able to achieve? is the professional edition necessary to obtain a professional quality education and create pro-quality applications? i want to use this knowledge to get a job in the future...what do you think? i have previous pascal and basic programming experience, but not in windows. Version: Version 5.0, Learning Edition

Answer:
If you're really serious about learning VB, I would highly recommend the Professional Edition. The Learning Edition is stripped down, although it does have good training material with it. The Professional Edition will let you get into database programming, which is really important if you want to do any serious VB work. In addition, you can find a wide variety of training materials even if you don't get the Learning Edition. Finally, by getting the Pro version now, you prevent yourself from running out of programming power with the learning edition. I'd just consider it an investment and get the Pro version.
