The best way to learn QBasic is coding things. It's a bad idea when people want to learn before they code a game, for example. The best thing you can do is begin coding games or whatever as fast as you learn the first commands. You'll begin finding new needs and you'll have to learn more things just to feed these new needs. That way, you'll be coding programs that are more and more complicated, and you'll find that you will be learning tons.

It won't take you long to learn all of the QB commands (there are about 50 of them...), but to master QB, you need to know how to 'combine' those to achive the best result.

But I agree with na_th_an, start out with a projects, and learn the commands as you need them. If you need to find a command for a speciel thing, ask at the newbies forum, or go to the QB help, and search.

There are 150/300 reserved words. Commands are a different concept. The count was right.

Commands are PRINT, LET, INPUT, CLS...

Functions are SIN, COS, TAN ...

There are more types of reserved words Smiley

Best way is the only way.


Drop the learner into the forest with nothing but a laptop, 24 cans of coke, and a knife. Pray he learns to program.
