Sorry for the slow reply.

The book should get you started. It's not all that bad. Much of what you're used to still works: subroutines, For loops, Do loops, If statements, Select Case, etc.

Graphics is very different. Instead of using methods such as a PictureBox's Line method, you need to obtain a Graphics object and then use Brush and Pen objects to draw on it. It's not too bad once you get the hang of it, and the performance is much better.

Aside from that there are mostly just a lot of little details that you should pick up fairly quickly with a little practice.

Good luck and post questions if you get stuck!
